I'll admit that I haven't read all the responses to your thread. I would rather address your original post than "duke it out" or respond to other
posters. You seem to be at a crossroads in your state of thinking, and I can feel for you. I have been in this state of mind since the time that I
had my first rational thought. I won't go into my own experiences, as they are too many to discuss.
My emotions have been varied during the years that I have been in the state of realization that you are talking about. I have gone from extreme
happiness to extreme depression, to everything in between. These days I have taken the route of being neutral in both mind and spirit. It has taken
me many years of training to get to this point, but I believe that I am finally at a point where my emotions are "in the gray" all the time. There
is one thing, however, which still bothers me and makes me angry...
...the corruption and evil that plagues our planet.
We see it every day, whether it is on the news, in the paper, or on the internet. I see the ways of evil men taking control of our fellow human
beings. Young children are being indoctrinated from an early age in state-sanctioned schools, young adults are more concerned with which celebrity is
in jail, instead of what the planet's leaders are doing with money acquired by evil means. Adults have given up hope of ever getting ahead, because
the banking families of the world own everything; as far as the eye can see. They own you, they own me, they own everybody.
Yet nobody seems to notice...
...except us and those that have awakened from their intellectual stupor.
We could say that this path that we have chosen (or has chosen us), is a lonely path, filled with depression, loneliness, and solitude. Yet, for as
much as we speak of these negatives, we should feel so lucky that we are some of the few that have seen through the lies and deceit. There are more
out there just waiting for a chance for someone to hear them, to listen to their worries, and their ideas. I talk to people on the street in my own
town, and many of them know something is up, yet they have no idea of what to do. I listen, and I offer my own opinions and ideas. The one thing
that most of these people share, however, is the fear of losing what they think is part of their self-worth. It could be family, it could be friends,
a job, a car, or that big screen TV that they purchased after years of saving for it. What they still fail to understand is that they don't really
need these things, and that they have been programmed to want these things, whether they know it or not. I have made it my personal mission to seek
out these people, give them the options of a new way of thinking, and then listen to them. Sometimes, all it takes is a caring ear to help these
people see things the way we see them.
There are those who will not, or cannot listen, and I do not pity, nor scorn them. They have chosen their own paths, just like we have chosen
I am drawing up plans about how we can attempt to make a difference. You have seen that from my own thread. I also appreciate the kinds words that
you wrote to me. I am happy that there are others out there who see things the way I do.
The problem now is: what do we do about it? Talk to others. Make them aware of the lies going on. If they choose not to listen, that is their
choice, but do not let your own voice go cold. You may feel alone, but you have more support than you think. Don't give up the things you enjoy
because you feel disenfranchised. Continue with your music, and continue with your physical training. Both are skills that will be needed in the
future. To be a bard and a warrior in the same breath is a skill that we should all possess. You have my support my friend. If you wish to talk
further, feel free to U2U me at any time.
You are not alone.
Peace be with you.
