New Manners? Look, Blog-Buddies, knowing you, already you’ve got fine manners. But something more might bring you extra success in this Age of Awakening.
Bonjour Monsieur. Bonjour Madame.
Dont you wish that everyone greeted you so politely? Even strangers! Actually, people still do this in France today. Yet for most of us, whats the closest well get to that much public cordiality? Listening to the start of Beauty and the Beast.
Start about 4 min. into this YouTube clip. Folks in that village had great manners. Cute little Belle, not so much.
But that’s how it goes. Everyone does the best they can. And, especially if you’re not living in a Disney cartoon, set in a simpler time long ago, life can be really, really complicated. Not everybody will give you a perky “Bonjour.”
New Manners. Old Manners. Any Manners At All!
What on earth has happened to manners today? Public manners! Meaning, how strangers talk to you (or wont)…. Also manners with neighbors, fellow riders on your bus, and people at work!
Seems to me, much of the problem results from poor adaptation to The Age of Awakening.
Even though the Shift happened near the end of 2012, and here we are midway through 2017, guess what? Its still a mess. Maybe worse than ever. Oh, the political horrors, the financial woes, and more — look, you dont need me to tell you about all that, do you?
Instead, lets consider…
New Manners to Help You Now
Manners that might also, indirectly, uplift society. Making each new day of yours just a bit sweeter. That possibility inspires me to call you Affable Reader in my upcoming issue of Reading Life Deeper.
Affable, as in charming and easy-to-get-along with, like Fred Astaire (even if you cant dance). Affable, in contrast to laughable — which is how todays social scene may seem to us all… 50 years hence.
For the July issue of my newsletter, the lead article may help you to bring about that glorious future: A golden sense of destiny that you may hold in your heart. (As I hold it in mine.)
Imagine a magnificent age, coming into clarity within your lifetime; an era when millions of people live in Enlightenment, Age of Awakening-style.
And when, using our full potential in life, we solve many of the problems that seemed hopeless while… Well, back in 2017. While the vast majority of humans were adjusting really, really badly to the new rules of this new age.
So Be Encouraged, Affable Reader
