Whenever I start to feel dread about the world, I remember this is Earth, not Eden. Not Paradise.
What helps me get through the day is that I know that my consciousness is only trapped in this dimension for so long, then it's on to the next challenge.
This linear material plane is like a chess board, light and dark, good and evil, every possible duality in an ever-evolving yin and yang harmony.
I know it seems like we live in troubled times, but really we don't.

holy cow,how did ya get in my head!!!???
i feel the exact same way.
i have been successful more than a few times, just to lose it all because of the feeling you have.
what is the point in this material world?
i am an artist (tattoo,paint,musician) so its hard to loose my 'gift',and i can use it to accumulate a bunch of new toys (again)but i live with the bare minimum now. i am contempt.
i have been married,and have 2 beautiful children.
my ex tried to change me into a 'normal' member of society,but that failed miserably!
we went our seperate ways,and ironically she has found out that the 'wight picket fence' life is a big lie!
it doesn't exist,and it never has.
i have a really close relationship with my kids,and i've tried to teach them what is real,and important in life.
they know life isn't like a tv commercial,and they have learned how to live responsibly,and not to have to keep up with the jonses!
any way my friend,although you may think your alone,trust me your not!
there is more and more people who are waking up from this bad dream,with a bad taste in their mouth.
like they have been lied to!
its what your gonna do about it that will make you feel whole!
good luck,and never stop fighting.
I know, somehow, that only when it is dark enough, can you see the stars.
