This will all tie in with your post. It may not make a lot of sense at first, but I think you may find some of this to be helpful. Not only for
yourself, but ultimately for the world.
You've lost sight of one of the main issues in this world. Most of the world's problems, if not all of them, stems from miscommunication. We each have
the main goal of achieving happiness in our lifetimes. Everything we do is based on what we think, or what we are taught would make us happy. This is
the same for each person. Most everyone has forgotten this simple fact. Because we have forgotten, each of us take separate life paths on what would
lead to our happiness. Some people work hard and want to make a lot of money thinking that everything they buy will make them happy. Some people end
up stealing and using money to buy drugs, because they think that being high will keep them happy. Make them feel good.
And we are happy, for a while. Or something close to it, at least.
Others want power. They think telling other people how to live their lives, or what to believe, or how to act will make them happy about themselves.
This all ties in to what is and has been happening for a while now. Humanity has lost its way. Buddhism and other ancient religions have known about
this. They have tried to tell us, but many religious teachings have been corrupted by the misinterpretations of men who have lost their way and have
abused power in the name of religion, so we lost focus over time. Little do the power hungry people know, all that would make them happy is to be in
control of their own lives. We don't control our own lives anymore. We are always driven by socially taught ambitions and greed.
This all ties in with what is happening now. These are birth pangs. We are in the process of teaching ourselves a lesson. By ourselves I mean the
collective consciousness we all share on Earth as a whole. We will know what it means to be one, to get along, and to communicate and understand one
another. But it will take much time and more pain for everyone to wake up.
You have deep thoughts when you're by yourself (by the way, think about how we differentiate between a "deep thought" and a regular one. Ask yourself
why we view deep thoughts as something good or profound). I know you do. About the world and such. Things you know would make the world a better
place. What you think we really are. Things you think about but don't share with most other people because you don't know how you should explain it,
or because you're afraid to come off in a certain way that you think the other person will perceive you in, or just don't know how to approach it in a
'normal' conversation. The shift in consciousness is realizing that everyone will have those thoughts. Everyone will understand themselves and how
they should live their life, a lot of people will take longer until they catch up and start to realize. They will know what needs to be done in order
to truly experience happiness away from a greedy, corrupted, materialistic version of society. Why do you think the world is so bad? We are relying
more and more on "things" to bring happiness. The "awakening" is realizing that it's not true. That you can't just tell yourself you are happy when
you're really not inside. Being awake is being in touch with your feelings because you know what is right. Not suppressing them because you need to
continue on the path of your 9-5 job thinking that one day you'll be happy because you bought a house that you only work to pay for anyway, before
growing old and dying.
Share your thoughts with people. Tell them what you think would make the world positive, not why you find the world to be negative. A lot of people
need a push in the right direction. Words can mean a lot to someone.
Sorry for the long drawn out post. I felt like I had a lot to say.
