This is something I've been saying for a while. Like Asmoday, I get my rocks off by seeing human potential fulfilled. I am, for all intents and purposes, an ally of lightworkers. Like Asmoday, though, I'd go farther than many of them in order to achieve my goals.
And I'm not going to put words in Asmoday's mouth but for my part it's why I say it's necessary for us to collaborate. There are enough differences that we tend to get stuck inside of our own little bubbles when we shut the other side out and that not only restricts us personally, it prevents us from seeing the value in what the other side does when we disagree with it. Generally I'm far quicker to write people off than most lightworkers because my time is extremely valuable and most people don't have it in them to push for excellence. Lightworkers have repeatedly proven me wrong and I've been forced to examine myself as a result. Likewise, I've convinced more than one lightworker that they were wasting their energies trying to help someone and that they were at or nearing what Steve calls lightworker syndrome, which then freed their energies for more productive tasks.
That's one of the simplest examples of the synergy we have. You guys wanna change the world? You'll need us. If we want to set up a system that's stable and equitable but still allows for the pursuit of excellence, we'll need you. If one side rejects the other wholesale we damn ourselves. If there's understanding and a common goal we might just prevent this metaphorical Titanic from slamming into an ice berg.
