Hello all. Glad i finally decided to get a membership and start posting here. I've been reading through random forums for the past few months and
I've decided that this place is my best source for world news that actually matters. So I'd like to start by thanking whoever created this site and
all of the insightful people who contribute here. Having said that I would like to take this opportunity to rant for a few minutes so here goes.
I'm 23 and working in software sales. Over the past year or so I have undergone some pretty significant life changes, so significant in fact that I
would call it the single most important few months of my life. It started when I watched the documentary "wake up call" online. I'm sure all of
you are familiar with it or ones like it (loose change, zeitgeist, ect). I graduated from college just last year and at the time I was just like any
other american guy. I couldn't wait to get a job and make money so I could buy myself nice things and all that stuff blah blah. But that video
completely changed my life and the way I see the world. I've always been open minded, but the idea of a conspiracy theory seemed like a joke to me
(you know how the media/society attaches nothing with conspiracies and those who consider them). Ever since watching that video it seems like so much
more in the world makes sense. I believe 9/11 was an inside job. I believe bankers run the world. I believe that money is the root of all evil. I
believe that the majority of people are fake sheeplike things that do nothing but what they're told through the media, religion and government.
I've researched anything and everything conspiracy related and I can't help but believe so if not a lot of it.
So kind of on side note (sorry this isn't exactly flowing very well but that's in line with my normal train of thought). Right around the same time
of me starting to research the "truth" or whatever you want to call it, I started to realize how pointless my job and money is. And I'll be
honest, working in sales is rough. The place I work is like a frat. Everyone here is solely motivated by money and strippers. I can't relate to
anyone here except my best friend who got me the job. So needless to say me and my coworkers aren't the best of friends. But this place pays my
bills so I keep things kosher. All of the managers here are smack talkers and love to pick on me. It got so bad that I developed severe anxiety. I
couldn't sleep and everyday was torturous. But then one day I had a revelation. And I'm still hesitant to say this but I feel like I had a
spiritual awakening. I can't explain what triggered it but I just felt an overwhelming sense of calm and peace. And I can't help but think it is
because I finally "woke up" and realized that nothing money-related matters because its all fake. My priorities shifted to things that are real,
like my happiness, experiencing nature and meeting new people.
This brings me to now. I plan on living the rest of my life trying to get people to where I am now and to think the way I do. I know this is nearly
impossible but I feel like there isn't a better thing I could do with my life. I feel like its a calling. I've managed to wake up some of my
friends, but some of the people I care about most will be hard. My parents are extremely religious and it dominates their life. If I told them
anything contrary to what they believe they would probably cry and call me crazy. They both slave away at jobs the don't really care about it and
anytime I try to explain to them that this is not the natural way human are supposed to live they shrug it off and just plain don't get it. They
also don't understand my distain for money. They think its weird. They're tired all the time and unhappy many nights with the monotony of their
lives. They honestly look live slaves to me. I can't believe how literally everyone in this world is a slave to money and they don't even get it!
I hate money more than anything else. Sure it buys you nice things but at what price?? I just want to shake every person walking around at 8am on
the train with that zombie look on their face and wake them up. What can I do? What can I say? I want to help as many people as I can but it's
extremely daunting. Suggestions? Thanks for reading my rant!
