Religion, (quite a few) people know that it is absurd, and quite odd to believe in it, (you may be christian so) hinduism, and it's polytheistic ways are absurd to you why would you honestly live your life by this!
Or Why do we half to live this way, when there MUST be a easier more effiecent way to living life and advancing it.

Let's get serious, I am searching for something. What? I don't know. I feel like I have been searching for it for a while, looking through endless boring news, blogs, and yes... forum threads.
Even pre-internet I felt as though I was compelled to listen to late night talk radio, (thank you Art), or flip through books at the local bookstore. But what I was looking for has never surfaced.
What's weird is that no matter how hard I look and no matter how many damn cool and interesting things I find, it's still not "the thing". But what could "the thing" be?
Why can't I sleep well anymore? Why are my dreams giving off incredibly predictive scenarios? Why do I feel like "everything is falling in line"? In line to what?
The big question I have been trying to answer since I was 15:
Why does it feel like I am living the same life over and over?
It's almost like I go through everything just to end up starting over again, in the same body, same parents, same everything. I feel tired. I feel like I know how things are going to go down in the coming years, I know it's not going to be fun and we (as a collective) will all have an awakening of some sort, maybe even come a little closer together. I don't know.
But these things are just probably random thoughts in my head, maybe nothing to them... But yet I wonder... Why do I feel like there is something out there for me to find. Something that's waiting to be discovered. Maybe it's a purpose, or a physical item, or maybe it's something else all together.
Are you looking for something?
Do you feel like you go about day to day with nothing accomplished? Do you feel like I do? Do you need something in your life but you don't know what it is?
I'm not trying to sound religious, or philosophical to everyone, but I have noticed in recent threads that everyone seems concerned about the same thing but no one has said yet what that thing is.
Seriously! Look around! We're all heading for something, somewhere, in some time. But no one knows what, when, where, who or why. Stop and question this! Look at yourself, your life, your husband, your wife, your kids.
Something's up gang, it's happening to all of us and we don't know how to express it. Read this site, people are searching for answers, they "need to know", they "need to find". It's all over the spectrum, and what's funny is that I feel like no matter how hard we look, no matter the efforts, in the end it will seem as though "the one thing" we are all looking for has been in front of all of us all along.
Do you realize how incredibly intriguing that sounds?
Maybe it's a collective of different events, people and the like. Who knows. But I felt compelled to write this tonight, because I think the people searching blindly for a mystery they can't explain or can't even begin to understand, and have to come together to find it.
I know there's others out there who feel compelled to search. I see it in threads all over this site. My question to you is: What are we searching for? Why are we searching? Who's compelling us to search? What will come of it?
What are we all missing?
By the way... If anyone is thinking this has something to do with the Matrix or any other movie that deals with "similar subject matter", you're wrong. I did not just see something and decided I should post randomly. Nor is this "just human nature" either.
I really feel this way, and have for a long time. I can't figure it out. But I know that by asking the collective of everyone out there I might have a chance at finding what I have been searching for my entire life.
FYI: I'm also not depressed, mental, or in bad health. I'm happy, I'm loved, and I'm in the best shape of my life.
So... What do you think? What is it we are all searching for?

I'd say your still fairly young 18-20 ish. Ish I stress.
Dreams giving predictions, HONESTLY have any of them come true?
I had a dream the other day of Dallas being nuked, nothing so far, but eh could happen, probably not though.
