The weird thing about Serenity Signalling is that the people who do it are usually so strung out. The higher the incidence of “live, laugh, love” posts, the more likely they are to be enraged at their friend forgetting the name of their cat. Or firing off “never mind, I knew you would not get it” snippy texts.
They may not be Buddhist, but they’ll have the statue because it’s fantastic for Serenity Signalling.
The most prolific Serenity Signallers are Chaos Addicts who moonlight as Energy Vampires when they’re low on resources. They mindfully nurture their resentments until they’re at Grudge Flashpoint and ready to be released in a blame-storming session. And, because they’re brooding in the lotus position or sulking in Savasana, it’s totally fine.
If you call them out for anything, they’ll say it’s just your non-alignment, heart chakra or low spiritual evolution. Your fault, in other words. Serenity Signallers will steal your time, money, content, or friends and then tell you that you need to chill. Or be more light-filled, like them. Their theft is not problematic – your attachment is the issue here.
They want you to let go and go with the flow, but it has to be their flow. You may even be featured in a Serenity Signalling post, not by name but as “dark energy” that the person is having to breathe through or send healing energy toward.
