What a fantastic thread. It took me a few days to read through
all the content of flashstorminc's thread. Like many other community
members I resonated with a sense of shared purpose toward
a different reality, based on the op's writings, insightful
comments and the community's response good, bad or otherwise.
I've floundered around in life for a number of years, spiritually
and otherwise. Intuitively I know my answer to the strife
around us today lay in selflessly helping others and not giving
into the fear being laid on us so well by the powers that be.
I'm no genius or master meditater, my idea of getting close to
whatever my creator is is to fall asleep listening to Dark
Side of the Moon and wallowing in the natural beauty of my
environs. I don't stress over things I have no control over
and do my best to affect changes where I can when I know it's right.
Higher frequencies, different planes of existence etc., sound
very cool as does interplanetary travel with benevolent beings
here to help our world out of the perceived hell hole it's becoming.
In my own neighborhood, people I see are clueless, struggling with
their own 3rd dimensional problems, financial, familial, mostly
secular I presume. Most don't vote or give of themselves I suspect
and probably are completely unaware of what's happening big-
picture wise. Personally, I'm trying to move on from a wrongful
termination from a media Goliath, wishing I had two dimes to rub
together yet grateful my immediate needs for basic survival are
in place. I volunteer at a non-profit while I wait for a settlement
check, have food, a couple days supply of smokes, a half tank of petrol
and a support group of great people. I also have a darling girlfriend
and a 97 year old grandmother that are of the same ethic as I.
On the ground, I plan for the short and midterm future. The basics
like water, food, self defense, etc. It's not fear based, just practical.
I ply my skill as a mediator and connector of people, learned
from my last career of many years as a successful sales person,
selflessly and with no expectation of compensation.
The future? Follow your bliss, stay true to your heart, be loving,
be prepared, be a teacher and student and take time for yourself
doing whatever it is that connects you with your own creator.
Everything will be OK, just don't give into the fear. If you have
an aptitude to help with the big picture, do so, if you are better
with things local, use them as such. We all have very special
individual gifts lets use them collectively to help each other.
