Well, you're not the only one that feels out of place. I have similar feelings, although I'm not asexual. Affection can easily exist with the absence of sex though, even with someone you'd consider your "lover". Why you wouldn't partake in it though is like having a convertible car but never putting the roof down in the summer.
So yeah. It seems you've wrestled with yourself and society and it's "norms". Well, it's norms are bull# imo. I think Terrance Mckenna summed it very well:
“We have to create culture, don't watch TV, don't read magazines, don't even listen to NPR. Create your own roadshow. The nexus of space and time where you are now is the most immediate sector of your universe, and if you're worrying about Michael Jackson or Bill Clinton or somebody else, then you are disempowered, you're giving it all away to icons, icons which are maintained by an electronic media so that you want to dress like X or have lips like Y. This is #-brained, this kind of thinking. That is all cultural diversion, and what is real is you and your friends and your associations, your highs, your orgasms, your hopes, your plans, your fears. And we are told 'no', we're unimportant, we're peripheral. 'Get a degree, get a job, get a this, get a that.' And then you're a player, you don't want to even play in that game. You want to reclaim your mind and get it out of the hands of the cultural engineers who want to turn you into a half-baked moron consuming all this trash that's being manufactured out of the bones of a dying world.”
As for "powers" well, just look at what the chi can do. It's pretty awesome stuff, but that's not all. I've seen videos of, what I assume are shamans, healing with the laying of the hands and even levitating. The human body is capable of great things because it has the spirit as it's power source. So, don't resent your humanity, it's actually a precious thing to be in these bodies rather than, say, a goldfish.
Great change is coming though. For whatever reason, lots of people believe that too. Steady on and spiral out.edit on 2/4/12 by
