The "New World Order" ain't new, chief. The same families and bloodlines, the same natural aristocracy (some "college mind slaves" or whatever, others, like Bill Gates, brilliant dropouts but never burnouts) has propped up and animated the world from time immemorial. The only impending difference is that the props will finally be taken away and everything will be seen for what it is.
Those of us who are Awake owe nothing to those who have been unable to wake up before now and should certainly feel no guilt at finally being able to accept the rewards at long last that we have always deserved for our sacrifices. We have been paying for the sleeping world forever, it's time we finally took ownership.
People have separated them so far from each other emotionally, and spiritually

I think you're all jumping on him for the wrong reasons. I don't think his intent was to spread selfishness but more along the lines of "if you are awake then don't waste your energy on trying to wake others up if they're not ready. It's not your job and it will cause you a lot of strife and grief." We've all felt this. Can you discuss topics here with all of your friends, family, co-workers? Have you tried? I have and with it comes a lot of grief. Trying to wake others up to the nature of our reality makes you an outsider. People think you're crazy, they join up like a typical mob to make themselves feel better so they can mock you and feel the warm embrace of the hive mind.
To the OP's point. Just be satisfied in that you are awake. Be happy that your eyes are open and realize it's not your place to open other people's eyes. They will open when they are ready or maybe they never will. The most important step is understand these things for yourself. Everyone is on their own path and will come to understanding in this life or the next or the next. It's not your place to rush them. Encouragement if they found the beginning of the path but your energy should remain fixed upon yourself because understanding is only the beginning.
Although emotions can deter us from coming awake, often they enhance the eternal nowness of the universe. For all we have is now... ever.. there is so other moment. The rest is all illusion and dreams, past and present do not exist in my world. Maybe they did once, but as I write this it is becoming part of a past that is causing me to awaken further into the now.

Fear is a strong motivator to stay asleep. When a person realizes that they are responsible for so much they will run, and run hard.

All my life I struggled with this question, how do I help others to awaken?
