Because you are in the world but not "of it". Not a "product of the world" as it were. The pressure to conform is so great, shedding those
"requirements" is like losing ones life. Now you know what it is to face the void, now you know what the word 'faith' means. When you have nothing to
fall back on, that is not a state of "having nothing". That is when you learn to find and depend on a new inner guidance, not from within, but through
our inward search for guidance that comes through us, if we'll let it. That is true happiness.
I don't mean "happy" like happy - celebrating, I mean a true inner peace. A lack of internal conflict between the way we live and the way we were
meant to live. There is a void in most peoples souls their whole life because they have never ventured beyond the realm of comfort and "sureness"
brought on by the maintenance of all that money, stuff and structure. If there is a true meaning to the word "be" you have discovered it.
Maybe you can relate...
Wow. You touched me so deeply. I have not mentioned once my inner spiritual understanding for this change in lifestyle, but to be honest, this
change has been SO much deeper than just no longer living in a house.
Deep within me, this change was about refusing to be afraid and to live my life in fear any longer. I began to understand that we are not these
frail, finite physical beings called humans. We in truth are actually powerful, infinite spiritual beings that were never born and will never die.
Now, if I knew that to be true, then what is there to fear? This is the key to the whole enslavement issue. Once you begin to grasp that you really
will NEVER die, what is there to fear? Yes, this body could starve or die, but this "avatar" body is NOT really me.
Once you just let go and follow your heart, life becomes a whole new place and a happiness comes over you like nothing you can imagine. Not enjoyment
like a cheeseburger or a funny movie. More like a inner peace that makes me laugh in amazement. I no longer need "things". I can now just let go
and live what is presented to me. I am no longer afraid...
Thank you for seeing this in me my friend.
