Just something to share here, and I hope some can find value in it. Anyways, in recent weeks I have been dealing with some issues with my son at
school, and I have been talking with my mom about these issues. A number of times I have given her my commentary on the state of the school systems
these days, and that has even digressed into other topics like big pharma, the government, the economy, etc. Well, my mom made a comment to me the
other day, and she used a word that I have heard hundreds of times but never really looked into the definition. My mom said that I was disillusioned.
At first, I wasn’t sure what to think, and I even bordered on taking it as a criticism, until I looked it up. After viewing the definition, I have
really taken hold of it, and think it was such a perfect description of myself. I also thought that pretty much every member here on ATS could fit
this definition too, and that is why I wanted to share it. Here is what I found:
disillusioned: to free from pleasing, but false beliefs
For some reason, that definition just rang so true with me, and again, I felt that a number of you ATS members would fit this too. I guess it followed
along with the “deny ignorance” tagline, but I almost felt that it may even be more appropriate as the slogan for ATS, but of course that is just
my opinion. Isn’t that what “awakening” is that we all talk about? I know in the time since I have been a member here on ATS, I have taken on a
different viewpoint at how I look at the world. I guess it follows along with “ignorance is bliss” or “Why oh why didn’t I take the blue
So, feel free to comment if you wish. I just felt the need to share that definition, and thought you all may enjoy it too.
