I understand what you are saying TravelerintheDark. I guess I am a little worried
that I'm running out of time. "They" say that the time is SOON, and we must awaken. I want it too bad and it is messing me up. I am going to
start taking my time and just let it all flow as it comes. To be honest about the whole thing, I am scared to death over what "all is to come and
be ready, and you must be awakened,etc...". The world is going to end and we will physically die, but if we are awakened we will be alive in
spirit. All I can think about is my sons, husband, and rest of my family. They aren't into all this and I just worry about what will happen to all
of them. I don't want THIS life to be over with. I want more time with my grown kids and a life alone with my husband.
Am I being too paranoid or worried over something that I shouldn't be thinking about?
It just seems like everyone is saying the end times are here. I wasn't expecting the end times to even be in my lifetime. Now it is here and it
worries me everyday. I just feel totally lost. Sorry, I know I sound ridiculous, but It is honestly how I feel now.
I read you message, and it filled me with both tenderness and a little sadness.
NO, you are not paranoid, but the urgency and fear that you might feel are only fed and further incensed by the movements, the fear-mongering, and
general atmosphere of a lot of "alternative" information garbage being dispatched as knowledge this day.
The very things I wanted to denounce in this thread.
I echo TravellerInTheDark's words: there is nothing to fear.
The more that you get to know yourself, your DIVINE nature, and all the abilities and possibilities with which you and ALL are endowed, more and more
you will see that there is and SHOULD NOT be place for fear in our lives.
Surely not everything that happens or will happen will be completely up-beat and understandable for some people, but EVERYTHING has a purpose, and we
can and must strive to find and understand that purpose to the best of our abilities and possibilities, which we should as well always seek to expand
I will share a personal story with you:
I have a dear friend, a very talented musician, "Joe", who has since childhood had the dreams and some experiences on the things to come, alien
One night about two months ago, I mentioned to him the work I was doing in Smokingman's thread, of his First contact with another being.
I told him about the reigning theories about 2012 and some other stuff.
"Joe" was suddenly alarmed and interested, for he has as well seen and felt many things, and initially, sharing about those experiences is how we
became friends in the first place.
Anyways, that night I left him.
Two days later, I received an extremely alarming email, where he was WARNING me about all the imminent disasters that were to come and the disastrous
course of human kind.
Another friend, who shares in no way and knows very little of all this "conspiracy stuff", told me of how he was hearing our dear friend spew dire
warnings and general dark pessimism even to strangers.
We scheduled one and then another meeting, where over bottles of wine and long talks, I spoke to "Joe" and, in essence, had to bring him back to his
The problem had been that, for two days after our initial talk, he spent an inordinate amount of time in the internet, reading and ACCEPTING loads of
half-informed, twisted, and full of fear-sensationalistic trash available.
His sensitive and eager nature could not filter or envision that others might, out of ignorance or design, twist and utilize people's fears for
Coming back to our talks, two issues finally brought the light:
-"Joe" himself denounces that a lot so-called teachers dispatch two or three little moves and basic musical knowledge as instrument playing skills
As I have said here, I reminded him of his own words in that field: that there is no credible substitute for hard work, practice and study.
He has worked for many years and continues to do so, to be the virtuoso he is, and extrapolating, he finally agreed there is no substitute for
informed research, a "mature" experienced mind, and a good, intelligent filter to discriminate and find the useful no matter where it lie,
discarding the rest.
You cannot just expect for this things to come immediately and at will.
Surely there are people who are "born" more talented that others, for whom things can go on more smoothly, and that manage knowledge intuitively,
but ANYBODY can learn, provided they put in the time and effort necessary, under good guidance.
It will take time and effort, but with the right frame of mind and approach, any stage can be enjoyed and appreciated while remembering that a
finished product does not exist. Although stages DO exist, we have in it us to be able to grow and ever seek.
-I told him a temporary white lie, saying that there are no completely credible sources in Italian (he doesn't speak English).
He had read such amounts of monumental trash, that the only way our other friend, (who until now sat stoically listening to us discuss issues
impossible to comprehend for him as "skeptic"), and I saw of "protecting" "Joe" was to cut his "information" sources at the root.
A few days, and a more calm, collected "Joe" appeared.
He now feels that there are things going on, he always has, but now he is more collected, balanced, and requires much more from information than he
I encourage you Imyssbbad to do the same: follow your heart, and the ever-right desire to know and grow, but discriminate, think and search guidance,
and NEVER let fear or pessimism be at the wheel.
Basic knowledge of our true nature and the nature of reality can only empower you and guide you, to understand all you can do and our place in a
reality that, bring what may, we can always strive to comprehend and participate in.
