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.

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?
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.

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.
