I'm very glad I ran across your post, Mushninja. I have been
going thru the very same thing.
My so called "Awakening" began almost a year and a half ago
when I got broadband internet. I had been "into" UFO's for as
long as I can remember and I naturally began to YOUTUBE
anything I could having to do with saucers and sightings.
I was still of the mind that abductions like Whitley Strieber's
were purely imaginary. I mean, the guy wrote "The Howling"
right? But then, I came across other accounts of abduction
like Travis Walton's and Betty & Barney Hill's.
The BIG change came when I saw the 2001 Disclosure
Project National Press Club conference hosted by Dr. Steven
Greer. You always hear people say, "If there ARE aliens and
UFO's, why do they always appear in some farmer's cowfield
out in the middle of nowhere and why don't people of note (air
traffic controllers, pilots, military personnel, etc.,) see them ?
Well ... they DO !
I became convinced that ET visitation was real.
The logical NEXT question was; Why are they here?
I've been a member of ATS since June 11th of this year and
I've read MANY good possible reasons for their presence but
for ME, the best explanations came from another great
website ... Project Camelot. It's run by two very intelligent and
caring people, Bill Ryan & Kerry Cassiday. They are not
affiliated with Dr. Greer as far as I can tell but they ARE
increasing our knowledge of the "Why" question.
Between ATS and Project Camelot I've come to a few
1) The Earth is alive.
2) The Multi-Verse is alive.
3) Our particular universe is CRAWLING with life.
4) Time travel is not only possible, it's inevitable.
5) There are evil aliens just like there are evil humans.
6) And most importantly, just like the Beatles said, "The Love
you make is equal to the love you take".
I don't believe there is any "GOD" out there who will punish
us for being bad. There is just karma. Reaping what we sow.
That's just how the universe works, IMO.
And I agree with you, Mushninja, that some form of evolution
IS taking place right now with part of the population. Whether
this is caused by our changing positon relative to the galactic
plane, I don't know. I welcome it though.
Sorry for rambling on, but, I have just one more thing I'd like
to say. A long time ago I read Shirley McLaine's book, "Out on
a Limb". Her reputation took a nose dive as a result and she
became known as a "kook", but she wrote something I
thought were wonderful words to live by ...
"Be yourself, don't be afraid, and love the world".
