After America’s presidential election, are you worried about the security and goodness of your world? This article describes something you can do. It’s related to the “London Bus Conductor Effect.”
The London Bus Conductor Effect
This is a startup that you can afford to invest in.
And wouldn’t it be great if this joint venture could go public!
Now for the details. Let’s begin our busride of hope right here…
American Collective Consciousness Now
Ripe for Improvement with the London Bus Conductor Effect
Blog-Buddies, what would you see if you gazed into a spiritual mirror of truth? Of course, your eyes are gorgeous. What else?
Besides your precious, magnificent individuality, you are soooooooooooo connected. To what?
Plugged into the group consciousness of your family, your nation, your world — also called “collective consciousness” — that’s you!
An ancient concept is related. It comes from Hinduism and then Buddhism: Dharma. How can you show the world that you care? How can you do what is right?
You millennials aren’t the only generation to be connected! Everyone on earth, living now, is sooo hotwired into group consciousness.
Between collective consciousness and dharma, every one of you reading this can find powerful ways to serve humanity. Especially during distressing times related to the coming Trump presidency.
A practical version of dharma goes like this:
Every day, you have a golden opportunity to evolve faster spiritually. All you need do is help your family, your nation, your world.
Well, today’s article is about one of the very easiest ways that you can start having impact NOW.
Here’s a hint:
Every waking minute, you have the opportunity to add what is good and kind, even ennobling. Just because of…
The London Bus Conductor Effect
Okay, what is the London Bus Conductor Effect?
Imagine a full bus, driving its route in London (or any city).
Next, imagine that the “bus conductor,” or driver, smiles at each new passenger.
Assume this is a real smile. Nothing fake. And that smiling guy or gal isn’t stoned, either. 😉
Receiving that little smile, each new passenger gets a tiny reminder of human connection. Leaving the bus, each passenger goes on to give a genuine smile to the folks at home or at work.
And thus, in one day, countless human beings can be uplifted. Not because one of the “Important People,” Donald Trump, decided to start giving money away.
Simply because of the kindness of one of us, the “little people,” the kind who pay taxes. Like a London Bus Conductor.
Yes, Human Caring Is That Contagious
Whenever those soul lights switch on, yes! Count that as a tiny victory for collective consciousness.
The impact of one “London Bus Conductor” like you or me can be immense. In that sense, each of us can help to improve collective consciousness.
Living Now, the London Bus Conductor Effect Includes Something New
Auric modeling, that’s what.
Auric modeling means the subconscious impact each of us has on all others who are physically in the room with us. Or on the phone or webcam.
Ironically, auric modeling is more powerful than ever. Ever since The Age of Awakening began on 12-21-12, it’s so much easier for people to benefit from some degree of spiritual awakening. Some of this comes automatically. The rest we must seek out.
An example of the former? Without even trying, now we’re all energy sensitive. At least if we want to be.
Therefore, Stage One Energetic Literacy — basically, vibing out everyone’s energy — can amplify the London Bus Conductor Effect.
Living now, people don’t merely notice what you say or do, your facial expressions and tone of voice.
People really, really notice how they’re being treated. Energetically, as well as behaviorally.
Snobby forms of entitlement, other kinds of prejudice — we can’t hide them any more. If you’re energy sensitive, and you care, yes! You will feel it.
See Your Potential to Help?
Living now, each of us has the power to give others an especially strong and positive jolt of London Bus Conductor Effect.
We can do this countless times each day, provided that…
We are together with others in energetic real time. (Important!)
Hey, stop the bus. What’s that new part I just snuck in there?
Today You Can’t Work the London Bus Conductor Effect
Not unless you also understand “Energetic Real Time.”
Energetic real time is an important term in Rosetree Energy Spirituality (RES). As a term of art in RES, what is “Energetic Real Time”?
This expression puts words to something you probably noticed in the background for years. (And if not, you can start paying attention now. Being energy sensitive, you’ll get it.)
Energetically, the only human connections that nourish our auras happen in real time.
- In person, right there in the room with you
- Or on the phone
- Or over webcam
- Hey, that’s all.
Without Energetic Real Time, No London Bus Conductor Effect
Millennials and all the rest of us humans — don’t blame Rose Rosetree. Sure, I’m no digital native. But here I’m just reporting here on a real fact of life in The Age of Awakening.
Unless you interact with other people in energetic real time, you can’t help collective consciousness. Not energetically.
Ideas are nice. God knows, this writer and teacher thinks ideas are very nice indeed.
However, mere ideas and FB memes and YouTubes and endless selfies have ZERO impact energetically.
No London Bus Conductor Effect occurs via this blog. Neither by texting nor emailing nor any social media. Not even if you are instant messaging.
Unless you’re together with another person in energetic real time — here and now — oops!
You lose your chance to help others through the London Bus Conductor Effect.
Why Does this London Bus Conductor Effect
Matters So Much NOW?
Let’s sum up what we’ve got so far:
- Collective consciousness is the sum total of behavior in our family, society, nation, world.
- Through the London Bus Conductor Effect, each of us has the power to make a positive impact on others energetically.
- However, we can do this only when together with people in energetic real time.
- Auric modeling can be immensely powerful for increasing spiritual awakening.
- From a spiritual perspective, doing this could be considered your dharma.
Why care? Because spirituality is caught, not taught. Let’s face it. The energetic quality of life in America and Brexit-Land (a.k.a. England) and so many other places… just stinks.
Improving this depends on spiritual awakening. An awakening for as many people as possible. Also an awakening that doesn’t depend on religion or politics. Awakening that doesn’t require a membership in anything other than the magnificent caring human race.
Connecting without Energetic Real Time Is Fun, Sure.
But It Can’t Bring the London Bus Conductor Effect.
If you care about your world — and I’m quite sure you do — take heed. Caring defines the best in us. We humans are hardwired with the potential to care! To connect and to care!
Connecting energetically can’t solve all of humanity’s problems. But let’s not ignore this hidden, subtle aspect of life.
Especially when it’s ridiculously easy for you to start bringing it!
Sure you can bring it! That London Bus Conductor Effect!
Because let’s face it: The Trump election is a wakeup call to every caring person in America about the sum total of our collective consciousness.
Do White People Not See It?
We “London Bus Conductors” Can See It.
Entitlement has been showing all along, in little ways… and also in ways that are not so little. Only now the Trump victory have brought this bitter ugliness to the surface.
- White entitlement. (Some voted for Trump to maintain that. Therefore, they ignored anything else he said. )
- Male privilege. (Some voted for Trump to justify that, pussy-grabbing and all. Thus, they ignored anything else he said. )
- Christian privilege. (Some held their noses and voted for Trump to maintain “their” Supreme Court in their “Christian nation.” What about their responsibility to hear Trump’s other statements and dog whistles. Heck, is it possible that these “Christians” ran none of Trump’s foul speech by a voter’s standard for “What would Jesus do?”)
- Rich people’s privilege. ( Many voted for Trump because they identify with the man with the gold-plated, Mammon-friendly home. Afterwards they ignored anything else he said .)
- Superiority over the “poorly educated.” (And wasn’t this election ever their big chance to fight back! Has any public figure since Jesus said anything like, “I love the poorly educated”?)
You get the idea, don’t you, Blog-Buddies. You’ve been witnessing all of this privilege. This cruel denial.
And even if you saw it and reviled it, did you know what you could do about it? Today I’m giving you one approach that you can start right now.
With the London Bus Conductor Effect, You Can Make a Start…
Spiritually — and easily — you can start cleaning up the ugliness that delivered Donald and Melania as America’s leaders. And also gave Republicans rare majorities to support a presidency, in both the Senate and the House.
Republicans can govern beautifully. And I sure hope they will. Except this particular batch of Republicans has demonstrated the most significant moral cowardice in American history.
Yes indeed, political and spiritual ugliness galore have come to the surface.
Some readers might be laughing at me by now. But in all seriousness, I’m offering you three practical how-to’s so you can add to the London Bus Conductor Effect.
Actually, I’m hoping you Blog-Buddies will be adding many ideas to a post that has turned out to be just a bit on the long side. 😉
London Bus Conductor Effectiveness Part 1
When you’re in public, put down the damned phone. Please.
Make contact with people. Look at them. Even smile occasionally.
Because that way you can connect with people through your auric modeling.
And, please, please don’t judge people by their weight. Or the status value of their clothing. It’s time to find more interesting hobbies. All that hooey is worse than a waste of time!
Outside those fun experiences we’re all having with our electronic toys, let’s be honest.
Among your fellow citizens, what do you communicate? For instance, haven’t you seen folks like Joe? Ignoring the checkout clerk at the supermarket, he eChats with his friend.
Such auric modeling to that checkout clerk, intentional or not: “I’m in my own little world. Uninterested in you. Probably superior to you.”
Is it really so shocking that America’s ignored people have had enough? And voted accordingly.
Exhibit A of Missed Chances to Mend the Fabric of Society
Last night I took the D.C. Metro for the first time in months.
Sadly, I noticed a certain something more than ever. What has been growing for years?
People have been squandering their precious chance to uplift each other through auric modeling. Nearly every person was focused on some electronic toy or others. Almost nobody looked at anyone else, unless they were travelling together.
For three hours altogether, I saw this terrible behavior. And had I been reading auras (which I wasn’t, for the good reason explained in articles like these) — I would have found wall after wall.
Compared to all the walls that we Americans are already putting up against each other, through our auric modeling, geesh! A Trumpian wall against the entire border with Mexico measure up short.
A London Bus Conductor Can Quietly Protest Our Habitual Walls
During my entire round trip on public transportation, what did I find? Nobody, and I mean nobody, was able to make eye contact with me.
True confession, Blog-Buddies, I just love people. In public places, I’m always looking around, fascinated by one person after another.
This New York girl adores crowds, just for the chance to be among people.
It thrills my soul. Beyond that, I happen to know about auric modeling, dharma, and the London Bus Driver Effect.
To reassure you, I also know the tricks of appropriate behavior in public. But there are ways around that, ha ha!
In Public Places, Be the London Bus Conductor
You really can look around at other people (while still acting appropriate socially).
And these people’s auras will respond to that, even if their faces (and conscious minds) register nothing.
In public, most of us have learned the useful social skill of civil inattention. In the Age of Awakening, that is soooooooooooo lame! We’re far too spiritually awake to pretend that we’re alone when we’re not.
Besides, today’s lifestyles cause us to already by socially isolated, and to a shocking degree. (You’ll find many relevant examples in “The New Strong.”)
Human beings, especially those of us over the age of 30, are hungry for respectful and friendly social contact. Including each human’s daily requirement spiritually for auric modeling.
So, how can you help?
- When somebody sits down next to you, hello!
- Literally! You really can say, “Hi there” before getting back to your so-important round of Candy Crush.
- If there’s a child nearby, you can definitely smile. Maybe even talk.
- What if somebody near you, of the same gender, is wearing anything remotely flattering? Socially it’s okay to tell that stranger, “That xyz looks so good on you.” And smile. (Although, immediately afterwards, you’ll do well to look elsewhere. Thus, it’s clear that you’re not trying to win a new sexual conquest. 😉 )
London Bus Conductor Effectiveness Part 2
As a newly deputized London Bus Conductor, you are hereby authorized to smash civil inattention in additional public places. Not just busses and subways.
In elevators, for instance. I love to do this one: Positioning myself near the elevator buttons, then I can ask other people, “Which floor would you like?”
They’ll probably answer. We might even exchange a smile. Oooooh, makin’ my day.
From a spiritual perspective, any excuse to talk to any (reasonably sane) human being… in energetic real time… is golden.
Might I recommend any reasonable excuse for making eye contact.
Dare to Reach out Like a London Bus Conductor. Not with Your Mobile.
We London Bus Conductors can serve as incognito ambassadors for human connection, or even love of humanity.
I’m not too proud to say some dumb cliche about the weather. Are you?
If so, find some other appropriate way to make small talk.
Why? Because you’re living in the Age of Awakening. (And that’s how it can be remembered, not the Age of Trump!)
Reaching out to strangers without ulterior motive? That is not being foolish.
Every tiny way to reach out is spiritually golden and so much needed right now.
Can you find the courage to reach out… in energetic real time?
Sure, I hope each of us will make a difference in other ways. But this London Bus Conductor Effect is something you can do every single day of your life.
Energetic literacy has convinced me. Every act of friendliness helps to spread spiritual awakening. On so many levels, that can make sense to you, too.
London Bus Conductor Effectiveness Part 3
Admittedly this third choice is not for the squeamish. Only for the more resolute among us London Bus Conductors!
If you’re very bold, say something — just a little something — when witnessing behavior of assumed privilege.
- Behavior of entitlement, casually done in public. Maybe you actually could say, “Excuse me, sir. Probably you haven’t noticed this, but the way you’re standing near that pole makes it impossible for anybody else to use it too.”
- As for a truly nasty bit of speech in a conversation next to you? Maybe you could actually turn around and say, “Excuse me. Did you really say xyz?”
If you value your life, of course do not assume a fighting stance when calling attention to behavior of privilege.
Cautions related to London Bus Conductor Effectiveness
Due to the aforementioned types of privilege that got us into Trumpism, please:
Do not say a thing to a person of color, not if you appear to be what is called “white.”
Do not say a thing if that person is male, not when you appear to be what is called “female.”
Also, when you speak up in this way, keep it light. Just make a little questioning-type observation.
My advice? Reading this, if you sense you could pull it off, go for it.
Exhibit B. Would You Dare to London-Bus-Conduct in This Situation?
Last night, I noticed a womansitting near me in the Metro. Let’s call her “Gladys.”
Gladys sat, doing what? Playing with her phone.
Oblivious to all others. Absorbed in her own little world.
Nothing new there.
However, Gladys occupied a double seat. Adding to her territorial spread, done so casually, Gladys propped up her legs and feet up onto adjoining seats. As if she were home, in her living room.
However, in reality, Gladys was in a public subway car. Where she was taking up four seats.
In short, Gladys acted as if she owned the joint.
What Could Rose, Volunteer London Bus Conductor, Have Done?
I wish that I had casually walked over to Gladys. Not approaching too close. But near enough for her to hear me if I spoke in a pretty soft voice.
Definitely not looking Gladys in the eye! This would have been too confrontational.
Discreetly, I could have looked in the general vicinity of her face. Then I would have said, in a mild tone of voice:
Excuse me. I hope you don’t mind my mentioning this.
Probably you haven’t noticed, but you are white. And you’re young. And we’ve just had a presidential election where many people expressed how tired they are of being disrespected by people who act entitled because they are white and so forth.
If I might make a suggestion, please don’t put your feet on the subway seats. Without meaning to, you could be making a lot of other people uncomfortable.
Immediately afterwards, I would have quickly turned away and gone back to my seat. Letting the words sink in, if Gladys had the depth to consider them.
So Much Assumed Privilege Is Simply an Unquestioned Habit
However, I didn’t speak up. Not on that occasion.
Because my husband was with me. Mitch has already has suffered from years of behavior where I would use every possible public situation to do exactly the things I’ve mentioned in today’s article. (Except for London Bus Conductor Effectiveness Part 3.)
Poor Mitch. Likewise my long-suffering son, Matt.
Fact is, I’ve been London Bus Conducting for as long as they’ve known me. Really, living with me can be a trial for so many reasons. 😉
Usually I don’t ask either of these long-suffering guys to read my blog, but come to think of it, I’ll do it with today’s article. Because I don’t think I’ve ever before found words to explained why I’ve been doing this sort of thing.
And speaking of my Millennial son, here’s a solidarity message for all you who happen to be Millennials.
You Millennial London Bus Conductors, Go for It!
Plenty of you Millennials were shocked and saddened at this election. I’ve heard that many of you feel a calling now. Because you get it.
Trumpism isn’t just some fluke. Voting for Trump reveals the desires and pain of this nation. Half of this nation, anyway.
- Definitely, the ugliness has risen to the surface. Millennials, this is your opportunity. You can become America’s greatest generations for centuries to come, if only you will help fix this.
- Walk — or jog — in solidarity with your elders. Including fogies like me, who lived through the Civil Rights Movement. In American collective consciousness, that also was a time of spiritual awakening.
- And many of us protested the Vietnam War. Not to disrespect our brave veterans but because, for us, this was a calling. Because this was a time of spiritual awakening, too.
- Now is comes another one. Spiritual awakening in the making!
You beautiful, brainy Millennials. Best educated generation in the history of the U.S.!
Help to clean up this ugliness. And so many other Americans are ready to join you.
We have so much to do. We won’t clean up all this garbage in a day or a year. Or even four years.
Whatever! Let’s make a difference every single every day of our lives, until America becomes the country that we know it can be.
