I seem to be getting a lot of external signs lately that are screaming for me to change my current path in life. Does this make sense?
If you're willing you should describe those signs and how you feel about them.
Thanks for sharing
Really you need to make a list of skills you have that are marketable (it's always nice to be able to eat while giving back to the community) and find out what appeals to you, that matches your skills, offers training or schooling and go for it.
Motivation starts with action not thought.
Do some research on the various ways people can help and survive at the same time.
We all want to be special in this life and being one who wants to help already sets you in that immense club. That's special enough yes?
Best of luck
Hi, ive always felt exactly the same, last couple of years im starting to understand these feelings as i get deeper into questions about life, my origin and purpose.
Never had a spiritual surrounding till i met some people 4 years ago, and that was the time i began understanding my self, my real self that is.
As for what to do with it; im not quite sure, this is what im doing with it
I am personally because of all this very attracted to learning about how to set up a spiritual community that can serve it self in basic needs independant.
Might sound a bit extreme, but i am a firm believer only small communitys can be sustainable'(on the long run).
This is my biggest joy, dreaming about building a template of heaven on earth,and i see that the more i dream about it, and dare to believe in it; i meet people and come across knowledge in such a synchronistic way that i know, eventually this dream will manifest.
Cant really give you anything helpfull but i really felt like leaving a post because it reminds me alot about myself.
What is your biggest dream or desire?
Every1 has their unique talents and ability's, thoughts and ideals.
There is not a single person out here like you, so that alone makes every1 special; so what do you think are your individual quality's the world could use?
good luck finding your place in life!
I've no doubt this knowledge was passed on to me in the same way, though during the process over many years I thought it was just me. And I was oblivious for most of that time that the process was even occuring.
It's about self belief and empowerment. This is what all the great sages and masters have taught through out human civilisation. I could go on but I'd better leave it here. I hope this helps.

I don't know if it's just me, but I feel that if there is a catastrophic event of apocolyptic proportions, I feel the majority of the forum would be ones to lead people out of darkness.
That is if such an event occured. I believe that's what the wake up call may be. Or, it might be delusion and fantasy. Who knows?

Umm...do you understand that the time they force you to invest in gaining an institutional education is 90% wasted time? There only needs be sufficient time for theory work and then learning on the job for the most beneficial result. But that's not how it's done. Why is that not the case? The only exception to this *might* be something that's purely academic but those are few and far between.

All others who claim to offer 'light' are imposters, which you were warned about.......satan and his angels....which transform themselves into ministers of 'light'.
If you are humble, as you say, you will consider this.
So, what to do about moving forward with the OP's awakening? I suggest you gradually learn meditation. It will be your greatest tool in furthering your Service. Learn to listen to your heart. You're probably completely deaf to it now but someone out there wants you awake - and now, not later. You have to meet them halfway.
Ultimately it is a matter of you making a decision and going for it uninhibited by the opinions of others. Only then are you following your heart.
dude,awaken your chakras if you haven't already. i had that waiting feeling for a few years. Like something was supposed to happen,but I had no clue what. Started meditating and bosh,feeling's gone. Replaced by a rather nice feeling of "that's what I was waiting for"
.. 90% is wasted time, eh? My guess is that for you, college was a means to an end to get a degree (If you went at all). Some of us ARE academics, and yes, they are few and far between, but we usually tend to be the ones advancing humanity.. in both directions.
I still think he needs to educate himself.

Dude, chill. Get your pseudo-academic head out of your colon and use your alleged superior intellect to realize that I wasn't speaking to you.

Hey everyone. I just want to first request that you read this with an open mind. I'm not trying to push any agenda or focus on selfish intentions, I'm just trying to learn as much as I can to have a positive influence in the world. Change is the popular trend going around right now, and it IS happening, albeit very slowly. But how can someone like me, who has relatively no actual influence on the current power structure, actually change the world for the better? I'm talking about real change. Real healing. I feel the world's pain everyday, and I'm reaching the breaking point, and almost feel helpless when looking at the big picture.
I know this sounds weird, but I feel like my life is at a standstill at the moment. Something needs to be changed. Something needs to push things forward. I kind of see the world right now almost like a puzzle that needs to be put together properly, and I see many reflections of myself and others in the grand scheme of things. This makes me think that maybe I'm here for a reason. Of course, I could always just be crazy, but my intentions are pure.
Basically I am hoping that somebody can give me a proverbial nudge in the right direction. Overall things are good in my life, but I feel like something is missing. I feel like I need a real purpose instead of being another drone in the system. I posted this here in the Paranormal section on ATS because I'm looking mostly to spiritually enlightened people for answers. I know many people will say that you must change from within to change the outside, or that many small changes from many people can equal large change, but I'm not really looking at that aspect of it. The way I see it, the world needs help and healing more than anything right now, and I want to make sure that I am where I need to be to help in the best way I can. I seem to be getting a lot of external signs lately that are screaming for me to change my current path in life. Does this make sense? Am I the only one with these feelings?
I'm humble and will happily accept any advice or guidance that you kind folks have to offer. Feel free to PM me or post here in the thread. I look forward to hearing your responses. I'm not really looking for suggestions of charity work and specific organizations, I'm looking for spiritual guidance to help me get on the right path.
