The anonymous professional – that is what most of our contacts with the system has turned into. Big corporations or franchises with centralized offices run and administrate the needs we have as an individual and a society. Let us look at a few examples.
Before we used to live in in village or city for the bigger part of our life, or one part of a city, and there we knew most people and we were also known by most of the other inhabitants. Our family and extended family many times lived close by or in the same city. We bought groceries from a small and usually family owned supplier that in turn had connections with local farmers, butchers, bakers etc. We knew the owner of the shop and he knew us and we knew where his supplies came from because we knew his suppliers. There was an attachment to our local, our culture, a dependence that could be felt, experienced and seen. Nowadays – that sense of local co-creation is gone and similarly the understanding of dependence.
Our supply lines have become widely scattered and thus we have no chance of being able to tell where our products come from. Furthermore, the companies we interact with are owned by anonymous stock owners with no connection to the local area that the shop operates in. The shop is just a number on a sheet to the stock owners. And – with much certainty you have moved from the place of your birth and you have no deep connection to the place you live except that you call it your home. We have lost our attachment to reality – and this is hence reflected in the world, in the system, and it is shown through how the search/hunt/desire for money has more and more taken over the values of human interaction and relationships based on integrity and dependence. Today numbers on a sheet means a lot more than what exists in reality – while before – other values were considered. Today – nationalism and religion are basically dead – and countries are run like corporations – there is very little sense of connection and pride left to the place of our birth other than when it comes to sports.
I find this fascinating to observe. In my line of work, the relationships between the supplier and the customer used to be personal and based on individual trust and confidence – and it was not unusual that the supplier and customer created relationships that lasted for a lifetime. Today – there is no such loyalty or connection. The customers pick their service provider based on the resume of the company and not the connection/resume of the individual supplier.
Thus – our connections to one another has professionals and privately have become more and more vague and non-existent. And thus – most of our connections now are with the anonymous professional – we do not know him and he does not know us – however we put our faith in his hands – and hence we trust that the system will give us what we need.
How do we change this?
We change by become more locally connected – to our immediate reality. What is happening HERE? What relationships do we have HERE? And how can we invest ourselves for REAL in our current HERE reality, whether that be with our family, friends or work? Because that is how we integrate and connect ourselves on a real and personal level and beyond the anonymity.
