enlightenment, like everything else in this life, is a blessing and a curse. we are liberated by the Truth, but burdened by the consequences of that liberation. once you "wake up," you can never truly return to mainstream society, even though we are forced to endure it for the time being. Knowledge comes with the responsibility of spreading it. Such is life here on grand old planet earth, even the best things in life have their drawbacks. hang in there, ghandi, we'll figure this whole Truth movement out soon enough!

It has been almost 2 years since I 'awoke', and recently I have taken the time to examine my particular life in this conspiracy adventure.
On the one hand, I feel so fortunate that I was able to interpret that first piece of info that made me say "WTF" and then sprung me into an information gathering frenzy. Since then, I feel like I know things that other people don't. Mostly only because they don't take a second to look. I feel like its a privilege to be in tune with what is really going on and able to explore all the dirty details as they progress. And then smirk at the mainstream comments being made by the general population, while at the same time trying to spread truth. I feel like I am lucky to be playing this role, I believe that it is an important role to be played in the progression(or deconstruction, however you look at it) of humanity. Either way I am apart of it, actively, and it makes me feel like I am contributing to something.
On the other hand, it is a day to day struggle. Not a week goes by that I am not hammered by some form of ignorance, leaving me emotionally and mentally drained. And I look at that ignorance and all I can think is "why can't you see what I see. Why can't you see that we are just doing it all wrong and we could do it better, and leave the rest for debate". This doesn't just come from the gen pop, but from my family members, mother, father, aunts and uncles, all of whom I continue to try to discuss current affairs with. All of whom are dangerously misguided. I feel helpless. I know the day will come when we will be told to shuffle into a FEMA camp for our protection. And I know the people I love most will all be in that line while I watch. That alone is a huge weight for me to bare.
I was wondering if anyone else felt this way.
