First off Brilliant post S&F, I don't normally post here that much but what you wrote really got my attention.
For the last 1+ years I have been asking myself the same question, more so when I posted on ATS (No disrespect to ATS) reason being you are given many
ways of looking at the "Bigger Picture" you learn about things you never heard about in the Main Stream Media or even from conversations with
Family, Friends, Associates.
You see most of the things spoken about on here are related to "Conspiracy" and you need a fairly open mind to flow with some of the content. It's
this open mind that allows beliefs to easy change, however sometimes when we have to change them beliefs there comes a felling/sense of "Failure"
you probably will not pick up on this at the time as because your mind is to busy thinking "This is it, This time I got it" In reality "This is
it" is short lived, it only last as long as the belief.
Beliefs change many many times, however the change in beliefs is not the problem. The problem lies in the attachments to those beliefs, sometimes we
find it hard to say "OK I got this one wrong" instead we will tie in our old beliefs with new ones, thus creating a picture we already have in our
minds. We no longer see what is, we see what our mind tell us it is.
Humanity wants to understand so much, yet humanity tries to understand without dropping ones beliefs about what is it there trying to understand. How
can you understand something if you already have an image of that something in your mind. No matter what path you take, you will end up in the same
e.g. Somebody trying to understand God
"I am ready, in the quest for God, to give up anything: wealth, friends, family, country, life itself. What else can a person give up?"
The Master calmly replied, "One's beliefs about God."
There is an awakening happening and every single living thing on this planet will awaken, it's simply part of our evolution. There is no reason any
of us should want to understand this awakening, you can but unless you are ready you are going to create a whole heap of confusion for nothing. I
have been told from many people from all walks of life "Enjoy the mystery, that's where all the magic is" and it's true.
So my answer is yes, there is an Awakening happening. However some of us will not drop our old ways our old attachments and that creates confusion so
much so "We think we are crazy"
