The more spiritual you become, the more isolate and introvert you will be. Thats part of 'growing up'. 99% of our society functions on unbelievable bs on a daily basis. Who wants to deal with people constantly chattering around useless things? Not my business.


This is how I was feeling when I posted the OP.

I am becoming increasingly anti social......I attribute this to my feeling more introverted as I strive to understand my true origin and spirit.

I am getting very tired of other people and their opinions, and them trying to impose their negative energy on me.

At the end of my day I want nothing to do with anybody else unless they have something really valuable to say.

But I'm supposed to love everybody?

Well GoShred,

I can say that I experience this on an almost daily basis - I am continuously influenced by those around me; and all-too-often those influences are negative. Many times, I find myself wishing I could extract myself from a conversation due to a supreme lack of interest in its importance, or relevance to anything real.

Both of these experiences are something we must all deal with, as it is the presence of others that reminds us of, and encourages our real purpose for existence - which in my opinion is to simply learn.

We are not here to be alone, we are not here to dislike the presence of others - we are here to learn, and in your case, as is commonly mine - our learning experience is that of acceptance and allowance, it would seem.

I wouldn't fear that you're losing touch with your common man, but rather growing a closer understanding of those around you - and mankind as a whole, partially by tolerating those social interactions you are so drawn away from, but partially by realizing why you feel it is a feat of tolerance, rather than something enjoyable - as it should be.

It's all learning, in my opinion. Hope you the best.

Thank you for the refreshing advice!

I have come to some similar conclusions along the way.

We come across all sorts of people and all sorts of situations. It's up to us whether we suffer and fall, or suffer and grow. Suffer and fail or suffer and learn.

Everything and everybody can provide Learning/will strengthening expierience....

I am spiritually advanced enough that I have no animosity towards humans. I do find, however, and with rare exception, that I am happier when they aren't around me.

Lol, that's where I wanna be

So as soon as I remove the animosity part I may well be just as spiritually advanced as you.

It's not a coincidence that the philosophers, the wise men, the thinkers throughout history and the enlightened spiritual masters have been practically hermits and shunned the social circles.

Social circles are nothing but ape-talk, gossip, materialism, greed, selfishness, expectations and keeping-you-in-line so you would act exactly like all brainwashed corporate drones do. Why would you even WANT to be part of that?

The word 'society', btw, does not mean what people usually think it means .. (even that is part of the indoctrination)

When you can think for yourself, you need to be alone a lot. Social circles do not like individualists or hermits, so anyone who is even a little bit interested in the spiritual things or right values, is gradually being shunned into becoming a hermit. It's pretty much inevitable - if you want to follow your spirit, you do it alone.

If you want to follow the bottomless stupidity of the ape-masses, you can be social. Ape-masses are very interested in your physical body, even if you would rather talk about grander ideas, the design of the Universe and all that.

Very rarely there can be any exceptions to this rule on THIS planet.

But that's why we have the internet.. you can be social AND a hermit at the same time! Best of both worlds.

If you wish to remove the animosity the only permanent way would be to find the root of it's cause or to override it completely by contemplating the Creator at all times. Try to remember the earliest experience you personally had with another being that created within you a feeling of animosity towards others. Once you find the cause you can reverse it's subconscious programming and free yourself by denying the opinion/thought pattern that has been stored and recycled continuously in your subconscious mind.

The other method is to label others in your mind as expressions of God, such as when you see an angry person think to yourself "Angry God" or when you see someone who is homeless "Homeless God". This works if you have fundamentally reached the understanding of the Godhead that permeates all creation and is within all manifest reality.

The Absolute Truth is we are all God, though this does not ring true to one who isn't correctly cultivating. One needs to spend enough alone time with their mind completely set on the Father to fully self-realize.

The old phrase, 'you can lead a horse to water...'. When the horses are assholes and idiots and take away from your own growth, you have to let them die of thirst.

I think the best way to know yourself is to be introverted and selfish. If you can spread yourself around, the better for society. If you can't, I guess the better for you.

We can only change the world by changing ourselves and it takes being alone with ourselves to know what we can and cannot share.

Good for you. You're more than likely on the right path.
