Following the Herd

There’s so much herd mentality energy in our society that it’s almost impossible to break its hold, and the reason for this is because the thing being followed is focused on and not the herd mentality of “I”…

This even includes those trying to help because the herd mentality is to “I” and the focus is always on the thing that’s happening. Until “I” is addressed very few people will ever truly break free from the herd because the attached mentality won’t allow space between your thoughts as the energy of “I” remains in control…
