Just curous about your post. Ides of March; I believe most know what that means. With said, you and many others have stated that "pieces of the puzzle are fallling into place," and your comment of the wait is coming to an end soon.
I would love to know your thoughts; of course without straying from the OPs precedent.

I'd like to see if we can recognize some common traits.
I don't know my blood type, sorry.
Here's a link to a personality test. It'd be interesting to see if several of us get the same results.
Here are my results.
INFPs are imaginative idealists, guided by their own core values and beliefs. To a Healer, possibilities are paramount; the realism of the moment is only of passing concern. They see potential for a better future, and pursue truth and meaning with their own individual flair. Typically unconventional, Healers often develop an offbeat personal style and enjoy expressing themselves with creative pursuits like writing or art. They value originality and want to be authentic and individual in what they do. Following tradition holds little appeal for the INFP, who would prefer to invent something that feels unique to them. INFPs are usually flexible and accommodating, and can often see many points of view. They usually try to support other people but will react strongly if they feel their values are being violated. They especially hate being steamrolled, and want an open, supportive exchange of ideas. INFPs are sensitive, caring, and compassionate, and are deeply concerned with the personal growth of themselves and others. However, they also tend to be independent, soft-spoken, and reserved, and can sometimes seem aloof, especially to new acquaintances. They prefer to seek depth in relationships where they feel a real connection. Read more about INFP >> Read more: www.truity.com...
INFJs often appear quiet, caring and sensitive, and may be found listening attentively to someone else’s ideas or concerns. They are highly perceptive about people and want to help others achieve understanding. INFJs are not afraid of complex personal problems; in fact, they are quite complex themselves, and have a rich inner life that few are privy to. They reflect at length on issues of ethics, and feel things deeply. Because Counselors initially appear so gentle and reserved, they may surprise others with their intensity when one of their values is threatened or called into question. Their calm exterior belies the complexity of their inner worlds. Read more: www.truity.com...

In this thread: A lot of people waiting for "something" to change their lives.
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
There have been some awesome posts in this thread, including yours. Yes, others have said this too. I think however, there is a basic misunderstanding of what "the waiting" is.
The waiting talked about by most in this thread, isn't the kind of waiting you're referring to. It's an intuition, a knowing deep inside of you, an expectancy of an event that will affect all humans at a profound level.
I for one, have made many drastic changes in my life. I'm one of those people who takes the bull by the horns, and wrestles with him. Sometimes to my benefit, sometimes to my detriment. The point is, you're advice is good for those "playing" a whole different waiting game.

If you had bothered to read the WHOLE thread, you would see it's not people saying they "need" something to change their life, it's about people who have felt their entire life - from childhood - that "something" - world changing (not their personal life) was going to happen during thier lifetime.

That's my motto (stop waiting, start living)
Even still no matter how absorbed I am into living, it's like
waiting with abated breath for the other shoe to drop (concerning
the state & morals of the planet these days)
Delusional as it might seem, I would like to think that the planet will
somehow survive after humans destroy themselves;
Once earth has had enough, it will become our worst enemy.

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.
What a load of tosh.
I'm 38 years old, have a higher IQ than you, have lost multiple of my nearest and dearest to cancer, (including a partner) so have had plenty of time alone, and 'still' don't feel like I'm waiting for something.
Interesting...like I said at the start I had always thought this was something I felt and not many others did. Throughout my life I have asked people if they could feel something just over the horizon, or if you felt you had some sort of destiny that would unfold greater then your own personal one.
You are the first I have seen reading through the thread that is the contrary, like my wife or friends or most people I know they do not sense this. I am not saying I am special or "we" are, but honestly I have felt this way most of my life. Not the mommy & daddy tell I am special, but that I am or that I will witness something that has either not happened ever in humanity or very rarely.
Also I am sorry for your loss.
made me think of this thread

great thread op....
it could be something as simple as everyone who has this feeling has lived a previous life.
also, im just wondering, can everyone state their blood type?
just a long shot.
i recall reading a theory that anyone with a certain blood type, i think it was rh negative, or just negative, will be saved when we recieve our "visitors". or something to that effect
EDIT: i dont know my blood typeedit on 24/2/13 by SecretKnowledge because: (no reason given)
I remember that thread. Il dig it out in a minute. It was something to do with an asteroid(i think) that would hit us and reactivate some dormant power in those with negative blood groups. It was a bit "out there", but interesting, none the less. Il link it when i find it.
Good thing I'm an O negative eh? Not only can I give everything in life, I can donate every ounce of my body in death to those in need.
Me too, im an A neg, for some reason my body rejects my o positive babies, thats a weird old humdinger aint it?? i idont want to derail the thread with this though.
I have to say its lovely to see so many like minded people on here. And il say this now, something that ive been ashamed and embaressed to say before, but as im amongst friends, i dont actually have any friends aside from my two lovely (a negative) daughters. I dont like people, i dont know why, i feel like a different species.
