....I'd love to go into discussion about this subject because I don't seem to share this view with many people, at least not on the
internet... Most people that are "awake" etc... are still attached to material things in a way I just can't understand. Sure, I'm posting this on
a computer, but one that's had it's best time and won't be replaced till it stops booting....
It's so heartening to know I'm not alone in my thinking.
I don't know whether the Ascension is real, or just another new age scam, but part of me hopes it's real and not for any religious reasons, but for
the exact same reasons you speak of.
I stopped watching tv, stopped listening to the radio, stopped buying and reading newspapers and magazines, and stopped living amongst the steaming
'crush', chaos and misery of humanity a couple of years ago. It became unbearable, and felt like an oppressive vice, squeezing the life and breath
out of me. In fact, it literally made me so sick, I was close to death. I moved away from society and live quietly by a lake, where I can hear myself
think, and nature sigh.
Maybe I have too much going on in my natal 12th house, maybe I fell over and smacked my head at some stage that I'm not aware of, but I've become
increasingly incapable of conforming to society's whims - and that includes all the fuss, bull#, frenzy and hype of politicians, the media, religion
and the new age.
I honestly can't see things getting any better if humanity remains as it is: on a one-way track to oblivion. But neither can I see things improving
in this world where humanity is stripped of its ability to protect and defend itself, as the powers that be so eagerly desire. I no longer trust
authority, given that every single one of them, at one stage or another, have proven they don't deserve our trust.
Yes, I hope all this ascension business is real. I really do. But if it's not, and it's just another scam, then I'll do my best to make lemonade
out of lemons.
