I'm just wondering if I'm the only one feeling like this latley. With everything going on these days, World Economic breakdown, Russia toying with US, US toying with Iran, and Iran toying with everyone. It just seems like we are on the brink of something monumental. I am finding it hard to concentrate on anything, I find myself unable to find happiness and joy in anything that use to.

I am consantly on edge of what may happen day in and day out. the question i wish to pose is this.

Does anyone else feel this overwhelming fear and fultility of the world we live in today?

Do you think it is nothing more than people letting thier imagination running wild?

Could it just be something simple as chemical inbalance that requires medication perhaps.

Or....does this delve deeper, could this feeling be our subconcious trying to tell us that something is not right with the world....that perhaps things are in fact spiralling out of control, and if we do not do something soon this world we lknow and live in could be doomed?


Thoughts, feelings on this or is it just me and im going nuts :p

A long time ago I realized that there is nothing I can do if the - hits the fan--and I beleive that it's about to. It's happened throughout history, there's no reason why it shouldn't now.

I came to realize that death isn't the terrible thing that it's made out to be--the means may be unpleasent, but the actual transition isn't. I'll pop out whenever the Creator intends, so why worry about it?

That beings said, I'm actually very thankful to live in these times. They're darned interesting. I think we may be culminating some kind of "cleansing cycle," and I feel fortunate to see it unfolding, maybe even play a part in it.

It may sound callous of me but I wish sometimes that the "event" in whatever form it takes would hurry up and get here. It's the waiting for something to happen that really tries me.

Well, speaking for myself. I just went overboard with survival stuff so i'm with ya on the 'on edge' thing. But i don't have the futility feeling just yet. Gonna be interesting, thats for sure.

yeah, the whole waiting-on-death-role thing is the worst part I would imagine.
I grew up in the middle of nowhere in the sticks, I know enough to get by and live off the land if something goes bad.
I would suggest everyone do a little research on how to be self sufficient. aka how to hunt animals for food, how to make it by in the woods and the types of plants in your area.
If it does get bad, you'll be a little better off, if not then you'll know more about nature. win/win

I'm not worried. Whatever happens, I will deal with.

IMO, worry serves no real purpose. It's a consequence of being in resistance to "what is". And it's a waste of time and energy. No matter how much one worries, it doesn't change the outcome of any given situation. So I really try to avoid it.

As Harman noted, we have prepared ourselves for several eventualities and feel pretty secure. I agree with asmeone2. I just wish it would happen so my husband could quit work and we could get on about the business of survival.


Trayen11, I think you might be resisting because of the unknown of the future. Just tell yourself that whatever happens, you'll deal with it then. Being worried about it now is just using energy that you may need later. I'm sorry you feel afraid.

change is such a broad term. how can any one know the indifferences between an assumed "change" and natural progression. change is noting that something rapidly switched, but the world we "live in" has been setup to what it is today over a very long time, like even before internet's existence. In fact, i think the only thing that has really changed is the fact that we do infact now have the internet. we now have the ablity to talk to almost anyone at almost any time. this post is my evidence to that.

the change we are feeling is a highly intangible thing, so it will always be contested.

what i feel right now is similar to the feeling after my first time "hitting a home run".

I certainly don't have the ability to "zoom out" and see the bigger picture, but I beleive that there is a certain small percentage of the world's population who see the Earth as nothing but a huge Stratego board and get their kicks out of moving their armies and corparations around upon it, and don't give a - for the other 6 billion of us.

I like to think that there is some kind of consious or unconscious resistance to that. For example, I don't think it's any coincidence that Ike slammed into the biggest group of refineries.

Physically speaking there isn't anything I can do to stop these groups or the reaction to them, but I can prevent them from enslaving me through fear or dying.

Yes, I feel alot of anxiety. To me, this world is a horrible place. Everything seems to be about money. Even the small town I live in is not like it used to be. Everyone just wants more money. There is no such thing as service anymore. Most people are rude. Even if I could forget all the bad things going on in Washington and the world, I cannot escape it because even my small town is no longer a nice place to be.

To me, the world is like a giant balloon that has way too much air in it and more air is going in everyday. I think it will explode soon...and really, the sooner, the better. I see no way out of this mess except for the world to start from scratch...and if I die in the process, so be it. I am not enjoying the ride anymore.

No you are not alone in feeling like this. i started feeling anxious and on edge, as if waiting for something....... about 2 weeks ago.

I asked my very sceptical partner how he was feeling about 5 days ago and to my surprise, he answered that he was feeling edgy and unsettled for no apparent reason. I had not told him previously how i was feeling...

So it's not only you... of course you could just explain it away by saying that we are members of ATS so we read the conspiracy posts and have a certain way of thinking so that we are picking up on others posts and thereby vibes too.

But, your post did strike a chord with me and I wonder how amny other people are feeling the same..........

To tell the truth ...I don't feel things are futile..and like many I am prepared ..in fact going wild camping next week Scottish boarders..

I just wish so much things would bloody hurry themselves up...its a real pain in the arse this waiting!!..!!and seeing the dominoes fall...very slowly!!


Frustrating !!

I find myself in the same frame of mind.
I'm even on the verge of taking back what I said about 'survivalists' not celebrating the downfall of modern life.

It WILL feel almost like a celebration just to have that weight lifted and have that sense of doubt removed once and for all..Just get on with the business end of it.

I suppose,till then,it's just another 'day in the life of....'

thanks for the speedy replies!

It does help knowing that im not alone in this feeling. Truth be told, I dont feel as if the end is coming, but i do feel anxious that something is coming and as the days go by the feeling grows, I mean it's to the point were something simple as concentrating in college or playing with my children is a job in and of itself.

I always seem to be "off on another planet" as my wife calls it.

I am not worried, I am excited. Part of me secretly hopes something big happens, not to prove truthers right or so good has a chance to overcome evil. No, my motives are much more sinister. I hope for something to happen because I think it will make life a lot more interesting. Yes, I know what some of you are thinking and I am prepared for the coming flamings, but this is how I honestly feel.

I think it's fair to say that we may be fast approaching the end of the world as we know it.

But is it the end of Earth and Humanity? No. We'll go on.

BTW, I feel fine.

I find myself wishing for an apocalypse, just to level the playing ground.

I myself cant see wishing for a apocolyps of sorts, but in a way I think it is time for the human race to be "put in it's place" so to speak. We have rapped this planet in the last 200 years and never thought twice about what we were doing. Sure we are trying now but in all honestly the few who are trying are not even scratching the surface in comparison to what those who hurt this planet are doing.

I'm hoping for a good plague. It would be supremely and beutifully ironic if we were all taken out by germs, which we consider the smallest and most insignificany among us.

I agree it is all about money. I would rather live in a world where people did things for the better good of the people. People would not die because they can not afford medication. If there is a need, there is a solution for everyone.

People still work to keep society moving along, but with knowledge that what they are doing is keeping the utopia.

Not a system where there a privileged few either. Wipe out any chance of corruption, and the laws would be that , that would punish corruption, not reward it.

I know I am dreaming, but what a nice dream.

thats a Gene Roddenberry type society, and i do agree thats the type of world we should have...no money, no need for greed, you go to work and you are given the things needed to survive and live in comfort.

That is a world worth living in and being a part of.
