I LOVED your post! S&F!!
Many of us are living life and feeling the disconnect.
But we HAVE to be here and we HAVE to be the witnesses to what is unfolding...
No doubt, the times we are living in right now, right this second are VERY important.
Every day is not just another day.

I need no reason to be here. I am here and that's enough.
I joyfully do what I need to do to get by each day and I'm grateful for the opportunity to live this life. To experience love, death, joy, sorrow, laughter and tears. Whatever the reason I am here (and I'm not convinced there is a "reason") I am happy to be here and live each day.
Regardless of when we live, people have to work for the necessities in life. Food, shelter, clothing. And people also work to have fun.
Life is for living. Whether you get off the grid and move to the forest to hunt for your next meal or live int he city apartment and hold a job that provides earnings to trade for goods, it's all life. And we have to work to survive.
Why did I come forth? I don't know and I don't care. Enjoying the moment is what life is about. Regretting the past and worrying over the future are fools' games.
No one owns anything. And what joy does "owning" bring? None! Experience brings joy. And that belongs to anyone who will take it.
Civil unrest may occur. If it does, I will deal with each day as it comes, just as I do now.

even if we lose ourselves in the process. (We have lost ourselves. There is no denier in the imbalance the world has)
You would be happier (imho) if you focused on something or someone outside yourself. (That's what I do constantly)
If your"work" sucks:"you are doing it wrong" (yes born in the wrong nest, had no education grew up in violence and a whole lot more of bad things in my developing years)
Have the cojones to grab yourself and follow a dream...

If this impending civil unrest becomes a reality for you and the rest of us, you will gain a whole new outlook. Perhaps worse than you are experiencing now. If I could go back and ask my great great great grandparents if they would rather live in our present time vs. theirs, I bet they would choose working in an office over sleeping in the barn laboring with cattle hoping their calves would live through the night. In those times, each day was a struggle for survival. They feared wolves eating thier children, we fear the IRS. They ate potatoes for months on end during winter, we are forced to grocery shop. Entire extended families shared one house, one dirt-floored room, one bed. Our homes have plumbing, shingles, carpet, and satellite television and most of us don't live with our parents after 18... Please, don't think I am undermining the severity of the situation here in America, I know it's real. But I have a hard time when people like myself, who have access to the internet and have time to care about issues AROUND THE WORLD, get all depressed about living like a robot. It is a choice for you to see it that way. It's not bad yet. Just remember that.
