I feel exactly the same as you, as a child i felt as though i was born during a special time in human history, and that i would be present to see something very special. However, i feel the same, im 45 next month, and starting to wonder if indeed i will around. Your not alone, many of us feel the same i think.
It's a gnawing feeling that our purpose is greater than meets the eye.

I know that was a lot of information but does anyone else identify with what I said?
And does any of it have anything to do with this feeling...no, this KNOWLEDGE...that something is coming and will happen that is far bigger than me or you or any of us?
I just...want to know. I want some sort of explanation or at least to be able to have someone identify with what I said or say, "Hey, I've felt the same way, I've been through some of the same stuff and it made me feel this way even more" or whatever someone would say.
I've been living my life to the fullest every day, I'm not waiting for anything to change my life because only God and I can do that. But I know that no matter how much I try to block it out or ignore it, the feeling of waiting and knowing it's coming has been growing stronger every day since I was a child. So what the Hell are we all waiting for? What's coming???

I will probably catch a lot of crap for this, and maybe it has been brought up already, but I didn't want to read through 10 pages of people explaining their waiting situation.
Why are you waiting for outside influences to dictate a change in your life? That is EXACTLY why the "system" people are complaining about exists.
If you don't like your life, change it. Get out of your comfort zone, try something new. Travel the world.
Waiting gets boring, and in the meantime you get distracted from truly enjoying this life.
... I used to feel the same sentiments as many of you, years ago

This waiting feeling, its not as if life is passing me by so much as it is a sense of anticipation. There have been some very insightful comments about living life instead of waiting for life to happen.....very wise words, and to some extent, I'm sure that's been a part of what I've been doing.
But this feeling is different. I do live life, I do enjoy things in the "here and now," I am present in the moment, if that makes sense. But there's always this feeling in the back of my mind of waiting.
I guess a good analogy would be this: Imagine you've spent weeks preparing for a test of some sort. You are ready for that test (or at least you think you are) and now you're waiting for it to begin. It's a feeling of anticipation, curiosity, apprehension...but mostly, its a "Hurry up and lets get things going!" feeling.

Heh maybe only the smart high IQ people who have been hurt and who have had time alone to think have these feelings. I have an IQ of 132 and ALOT of time alone mixed with enough pain to make me question...why.
I hope it IS soon and that it gets people to dream of a better way and then do it.
