Yeah, I feel like this almost every day. Some call it enlightenment, others call it craziness. (Crazy can be fixed)
The "other symptoms" are: not feeling like you belong here, you want to go "Home" but you don't know where it is (but it isn't on this planet), the way people do things is crazy or "not normal" to you. There are more, but I think it is the new normal. We are just becoming more then just our human form. Enjoy the ride, it will be bumpy.
Wow .... Totally misinformed ...
Enlightenment isn't lonliness, depression, or confusion ...
In fact, enlightenment would be the exact opposite of these things ... A complete understanding ...
You're moving backwards...
Feeling lonely and depressed about it is a phase though.
"Automatons with business suits clinging black boxes, sequestering the blueprints of daily life. Contented, free of care, they rejoice in morning ritual, as they file like drone ant colonies to their office in the sky.
There is an inner logic, and we're taught to stay far from it. It is simple and elegant, but it's cruel and antithetic. And there's no effort to reveal it."

People, forget about enlightenment. I don't even see how that got brought up into this discussion. It is such a silly thing to argue about. What is more important than claiming a certain state of mind, is letting go of our current state of mind, no matter what it is. That is the path to enlightenment anyways, it is about letting go of everything, thus no longer being bound to the cycle of birth and death.
Anger arises, but you are not identified with the anger, now allow it to fall away.
Despair arises, but you are not identified with despair, now allow it to fall away.
Joy arises, but you are not identified with joy, now allow it to fall away.
Excitement arises, but you are not identified with excitement, now allow it to fall away.
And so on.
And don't think that you're special or anything, you're not. You're a human just like me, only that you seem to think that you're a little special. You're NOT
