I'm Tired of Waiting for 'IT' to Happen

Every single day, with a mix of fear and excitement, I check google news headlines and ATS expecting to discover that some sort of massive event has happened (particularly in the realm of human affairs), and our lives will never be the same. Some call it 'The End of the World as We Know It'.

My rant is simply that I'm getting tired of living in a state of anxiety and ever present fear and worry that this may happen any day now (or even if it won't happen suddenly, that it's incrementally happening before our eyes) even though I've done nothing wrong in my own little world and try my best to be a good, decent, and honest person.

Due to; the massive concentrated powers of government, corruption, instability, massive US debt, the ever growing dependent class, class warfare, psychopathic greed of the elites, massive human population with endless needs, oil dependence, possibility of wars, potentially dangerous technological breakthroughs, etc...I feel an obligation and craving to be constantly plugged into the web of instant communication in order to keep an eye out for the tsunami forming on the horizon...the next big event or even just a clue seeming to hint towards one soon to come. (I think that much of this is due to reverberations of the trauma of living through 9/11...Older generations also have lived through other life changing historic events (cuban missile crisis, threat of nuclear attack, WWI, WWII,..that instilled long lasting fear, unease, loss of security, worry, etc. All of these events based around violence have the power shape our collective unconscious for quite some time)

I'm tired of being at the mercy of people I've never met and that I actually despise...You know who these people are...Some focus on democrats, some focus on republicans, some take the zionist approach, corrupt bankers, secret societies, bildaberg, whatever..It's all boils down to the same problem..

These people (or at least some sort of impersonal force(s) that they collectively contribute to...Aldous Huxley mentioned these 'impersonal forces' that we are now becoming subject to with increasing pressure) have the serious potential to affect my life in a big way and there's truly nothing I can do about it. The best thing I can do, is OBEY!, be a good little boy and go to work, pay my taxes, and fall in line. It's also perfectly accepted and encouraged to stay distracted by sports, money, entertainment, celebrities, tv, iphones, facebook, sex/porn/lust, beer/drugs/sedation, gossip/ego games, divisive non issues that are made to be issues like gay rights, abortion, immigration, etc., discussion of the current political theater being staged, and cutting coupons to save a couple dollars off of processed foods while many of the wealthy elites live in disgusting opulence and crap in a toilet worth more than I make in a year.

Maybe it's just part of getting older but I feel an increasing sense of helplessness and inability to do anything about the way that the whole world's gone crazy so to speak. Don't get me wrong, from an objective viewpoint humanity hasn't ever acted as cooperatively and rationally as we should've. But when I look at any sort of mass media that we are awash in nowadays I sometimes feel like I've entered the twilight zone and an alarming number of people are walking around like zombies, passively being sucked into all sorts of advertising, propaganda and brainwashing (not to mention the many distractions I listed above), and never take a step back and say "Wait a second, what the hell is going on here?"

I sometimes feel kind of silly going to work and interacting with people everyday as if everything is normal and we aren't soon to face a truly serious crisis..I am amazed and worried that many people don't seem to possess a sense of urgency about it all.

To try to bring this tangential rant full circle, you may be thinking that I should actually envy these willfully ignorant borg like clones who don't possess the sense of urgency that I do because they therefore don't have to be Tired of Waiting for Something to Happen.. The problem is that they may live in the dark in an ignorance is bliss scenario (to varying degrees in their defense, and I'm admittedly probably uninformed about plenty) but once you realize the magnitude and the seriousness of the problems that I've tried to outline here then there's no turning back.

The only solutions that I can offer are
1) we need to start questioning if our society needs to continue to be run by the immoral institution of the state which has a monopoly on force and the threat of force.
2) those not already conscious of them already need to now become more aware of the problems associated with ego and desire which have been thoroughly addressed by eastern philosophy...buddhism, taoism, tantra, hinduism, etc. I'm not imply that we all start wearing robes and chanting all day but there's a glaring imbalance in the world of western vs eastern ways of thinking in this area and a balance must be restored for the better of mankind.

you want the truth ?

in only less then 6 weeks
the big 26000 yrs cycle will end with the last age (Age of Pisces)
we have been within this age for the last 2000 yrs

Age of Aquarius will then rise for the next 2000 yrs
and then it will be the Age of Capricorn
then the Age of Sagittarius, Scorpio, Libra etc etc

I don't think your alone fellow ATS'er. I'm certainly on the same page right there with you. I just want something to happen, anything. Now take into consideration I'm only 22 years old, so i have not had the pleasure of living quite as long as most members on here, so i still have a solid ( expecting ) 60 years left ahead of me. Which I think is plenty of time for something relatively interesting to happen, wether it be deep space exploration, or a Time Machine, anything really. I think with all of the prophecies and 2012 coming up I think we are all just sort of ready for something to either happen or not happen, just want it over with. Thanks for sharing your thoughts!

I think every single person that has ever lived has had this internal drama. It's only emphasized now due to two factors. We are all connected now, so if something did happen, we would know almost immediately. The second factor is the fact we don't need to spend all day trying to survive now. Just work your 8 hour day at the office or factory and your life is status quo.

To sum it up, you're not alone by a long shot. The only reason it seems so "impending" is because you not only have more time to think about it, you also know that when "it" happens you will know immediately. So you keep checking.... waiting...

Thanks for your reply and I think you and I are on the same page pretty much...It's weird that so many people feel that something monumental must happen soon to the point where we're getting impatient. It's like we feel it's owed to us..If we're gonna bail out the banks, have BP spill their oil, wage wars in the middle east we don't support but still pay for, lose our freedoms bit by bit, etc. then at least we deserve to have the whole structure shaken up a bit and have a chance for a better world.

It's as if we all know how crazy and out of control everything's getting and we want some sort of massive event to give us a clean slate...Sort of like in the song Aenima by Tool at the end when he talks about praying for tidal waves to wash it all away. He was supposedly talking about Los Angeles which is certainly the embodiment of a lot of what I was talking about.

Quit fapping to doom porn and find yoruself another hobby.

Take up motorcycle racing, skydiving, or something else exciting and high risk if life is too 'boring' for you.

Thanks...I think you hit the nail on the head. It's true that much of what I'm talking about is just a product of the times...instant communication and not having to try to survive all day but instead being able to punch a clock for a monotonous job day after day and then having all my basic necessities met...which then leaves free time to focus on what seems like the impending event.

There is no logical reason to spend time on these impending events. Focus on what you would be doing if life wasn't so easy and you'll be fine. Learn to garden. Trust me, it will take you years to figure it out if your a newbie. If you have a lot of fiat currency on hand, watch the silver and gold markets. I know people say "if you can't eat it it's worthless", but it's been a standard of currency for over 2,000 years. Learn about it.

There are so many tools right on this very website that will put your mind at rest, if you're willing to take the time to learn.

I think it is less to do with the fact that people are "bored" and waiting for doom to break out because that would be lunacy. I think it's a deeper struggle than that as we try to cope with an ever expanding world where things become more clouded, complicated, and controlled. We have people all around us who expect us to follow a very strict culturally biased code of conduct and some believe, at least in my experience with these outbursts of emotion, that something will come along and wake the people up; open the curtains so to speak on the issues at hand. I am not voting for doom because I don't want to see people hurt but I understand where this individual is coming from in regards to "change" and breaking the chains in a world that is very hard to wade through.

I don't think life is too boring nor did I ever say it was. I'm not looking for news of a massive event because I'm bored, I just have a feeling (for many reasons that I outlined in the OP) that there's something that we're in the midst of or a single massive event that may soon happen. Also, not that it's important but I'm not into fear porn, just reality, and I already have enough hobbies and I have no interest in skydiving or motorcycle racing. That stuff doesn't appeal to me at all.

My suggestion to you would be to not worry about when it is going to happen because there really is no factual way to tell that. Instead why not prepare yourself? There are many survivalist articles out there and the best way to prepare for something is to educate and train yourself in the event of a disaster. Keep your eyes on all sources of information. Don't believe everything you read but try to weed out the blatantly sensationalized info. Other than that, go about your daily life and make the best of it. The worst you can do is to chain your mind to the idea of a destructive future. The best thing to do is hope for the best and prepare for the worst

I think about IT quite a bit. It is impossable to ignore IT because IT has become a presence not unlike the Sun Moon Stars Clouds & the very Air we breathe. It seems like everyone feels that SOMETHING is on the horizon. Not a soul can explain what IT is but somehow our collective cosmic mind knows that whatever this SOMETHING is IT is near and of a magnatude beyond our feeble Human comprehension & will bring a change so extensive so complete so all encompasing that everything that we know will be shattered & Man-Kind will be forced to confront itself & re-think every thought and question how & why we arrived at the answers we did.

Meanwhile - In the Great Grand Scheme of Things People are merely destructive parasites who continue to grow in numbers the world over not unlike a malignant skin tumor that slowly envelopes the host body.
This Planet we call Earth if it is to survive has no choice but to rid itself of this malignancy.
The only question is what method or methods will Mother Earth employ.
