I've been waiting a long time now, waiting on the lotto numbers coming up. I got this feeling after the Celtic tiger died. A man once asked me "what would you do if you won the lotto" to which I replied "what will I do if I don't"

I have literally felt like that for months and it has made me extremely anxious!

What I mean by Spring is a Spring of ideas like a Revolution. I have been telling my friends about this "Spring" but they do not seem to feel it and it frustrates me because I feel like I am the only one.

It was this "Feeling" That led me to Yoga and Mediation...
I hope it is a revolution of ideas or of a way life not a violent one!

Interesting thread... got big quick, too! Just have to throw my hat in the ring here and join in with the "me too" chorus. From as far back as I can remember I just had this odd feeling that the world was wrong somehow.. or something was off. Sitting in a tree once, guess I was about 11 or 12.. I was staring at the blue sky, white clouds and 'charged' air (where I watched the tiny particles dancing) and I suddenly grew tense, waiting for a rip to appear in the air that would shimmer and shine, then open to reveal the real world on the other side of that sky. Of course it didn't happen but the feeling I had was the same one I had been having all along, that something wasn't right and the 'real' right world was going to suddenly appear one day and everything would go back to the way it was supposed to be.

As I got older of course, I edited my thinking more to compliment the thinking of others and learned to keep my weird thoughts to myself. Still, as an adult and for the past decades (I am 50 now, married forever, 2 grown kids, 1 grandchild, life is fine most of the time
I kept an eye on world events, my ears perking up every time some strange news story popped up or a sudden insight about the cosmos appeared on tv... part of me wondering is this a clue.. is this it.. the thing that is going to reveal the truth about our world?

Still waiting for that... or whatever it is that haunts me.. just this deep knowing that things are wrong somehow and I don't remember how or why I know this. All my life I have been so confused by the ability of people to just meander along and live life without much thought, wondering why can't they see that everything is so backward? Why do they all ignore the elephant in the room, which is - NOBODY KNOWS WHAT IS GOING ON !!! Who are we, why are we here, who put us here, etc. and what is it all about.

There are some very strange things in this world.. odd events that happen that cannot be explained away easily. Anyone who has come into contact with an otherworldly or beyond-human entity knows beyond any doubt that there is more to this reality than what is collectively agreed upon.

At this point, I focus my attention inward, believing this to be the key to everything. Phillip K Dick said it clearly: "The universe cannot be asked to remove its mask if the person will not shed his. All the mystery religions, the Hermetic and alchemical and Christian included, hold the individual human as target by which to transmute the universe. By changing the person the world is changed." and I agree with this assessment. It's a strange and funny journey, isn't it.

So I am still waiting like many of you here... nice to know I am not waiting alone! (Phillip K Dick source: Cosmogony and Cosmology)

Yes, it's bigger than me. Whatever it is, I'm insignificant in comparison.

I really wouldn't say that...but maybe we are all just puzzle pieces? And you know how sometimes that one piece you finally find helps all the other pieces know where to go.

But the point of this particular " waiting game" is that it's not a physical's not something you can make happen. For me personally it's not that I am waiting for a life changing's the feeling that "something" is going to happen that will change the whole world and I have always felt I will be here to see it.

If I'm being completely honest I have never felt like it would be a good experience on the face of it...and that it would be challenging on a grand scale...but yet I have never dreaded it.

Yes on that scale aboslutely.. felt way back in 1969 I was gonna see changes thatw ere not just tech but life altering..

as if I knew that I woud be there to see something as profound as the RC falling.. yeah I totally get that feeling.. but I see those changes everyday. what worries me more is the changes wrought by technology that we adopt wihtout considering how they could enslave us all.. I see the net as a dangerous toy of college boys. I belive it will be the downfall of humanity as folks would rather sit at a screen than intercat in their own communities.. that worries me

I receive telepathic messages all the time so you could be right...I hope you are because that is rather soon!

You are referring to the 'Mothership'??

Yeah.... could be happening and in time to stop the mad nutters from firing that nuke!

Hi AF....I usually drift away from conversations when you assert yourself but I have to agree with your reply 100%.


Great post smyleegrl!!

At the beginning of the day I think I am waiting for my part of the "end" of whatever.

I could go deep and describe times when I should have been dead/killed by my own design or by choice of activity only to find myself reflecting about it years later as....I am alive for a purpose...but anyway...

I try keep my senses tuned to alert me to what that purpose is but who knows? Maybe many little purposes?

That's my thought.....thanks for the topic and have a great day.

This is curious. I just realized that this feeling of waiting is what drove me to ATS in the first place. I watch the threads wondering, is this it? Is this the beginning?

The beginning of what I have no idea. But I'm fairly certain that ATS will have some clue long before the main-stream media even notice.

Could it be the time were have been waiting for is already here? That is why some can actually smell it in the air. Perhaps the Myans were correct. The world reset. Let's check that. 10 years ago many people spent their Saturday roaming the rows at the giant box store. Everyone had the greatest desire to show that they were superior to others because they had a few hot cars. People believed their worth as an individual was directly related to the amount of stuff they accumulated. People had to buy boxes, add a storage area to the garage to pack in their worth.
At some point very recently we began to change our minds. The best jeans are now the ones that last the longest, not the new untested jeans.(Henry David Thorough) /sorry for misspell. We started to realize we were missing our dear ones on the way to the treadmill. Suddenly we wanted the small,ugly, tastey apple not the giant tasteless one they tried to market to us. We started into action a reset. Really, if 10 years ago someone would have told you that you would be spending your weekends learning to garden instead of roaming the box store would you have believed it.
Even the producers of the latest star filled award show told the stars to get some clothes on. The smug home coming queens of yesteryear have given way to thoughtful individuals who vote the mentally handicapped to be home coming queen.
They tell us we are more divided than ever. "They" tell us alot about our reality. Most of what they tell us, I don't see. That multi-racial street where we once tolerated each other is now a much kinder place. There is patience and respect there. It seems to be growing. The powers that be continue to struggle behind the curtain to keep the treadmill spinning. To distract us from the realty of the situation they are willing to use any tactic real or imagined. But, alas I believe it is too late. Main Street knows, the secret is out and spreading. Why rebuy when you can repair. Momma and Daddy get to see baby's first steps instead of just hearing about them.
Do you see the reset? Do you feel it in the air?
They are still selling those $200 dollar sneakers. But check the mentality of those buying.
December to March, a time of change? A reset, all that is old is new again, is what I have been waiting for here?
I certainly consider this.

OpenEars123, you may think its tosh, but you read through 14 pages to find the perfect post to call tosh. Thats 13.9 pages of waiting! If what I or anyone else says here doesn't apply to you, does it really matter? Maybe I missed a "maybe" some where in my post or a "lol", but really, 13 pages of reading a thread that you see no point in seems like waiting.

I think some people think the waiting means on we are on welfare and causing them more taxes or something.

That is exactly how i ended up here too, I have been waiting and searching my whole life.
I do not know anyone in the 'real' world thats thinks like us or has the waiting feeling!
I never reveal myself to anyone, as i learned long ago to keep my mouth shut and my opinions to myself.

Otherwise you get a label and ridiculed. For me the search has been on since i was may be 4 or 5
years old. At high school i managed to fake being cool, but my heart just wasn't in it. I would be watching the skies and tuning into the vibes of the country side. I swear i used to hear voices when i was a very very young child. And they were not friendly either.
I was a very very sensitive person in the sense that I could sense danger in a precognitive way and could sense a death in the family before i was told. These days it's just waiting for something thats out there, something that is related to , or has to do with before i was born, I dunno it just too weird to describe.

The best clues i can give myself is ' The star trek communicator emblem or the actual device.

The 60's band 'The Seekers' I think the song is called something like 'the carousel is over'
a woman that shall not be named from my village. (no idea why)
Space (always fascinated with it)
Paranormal ,but I have convinced myself as i got older that it must all be mumbo. on the other hand i think that it might be true (somewhere somehow).

Everything just feels a bit surreal.

I understand, please don't think that you have offended anyone, you haven't.
This thread needs posts like yours, as you said otherwise it would have just ended up a load of old farts agreeing with each other. Other viewpoints are always welcome and teach and introduce things that otherwise may be overlooked by both parties.

Well written and thought out posts disagreeing with the general flow of a thread are lifeblood. If you believe what you write then argue till your fingers ache. A bit of hunger, makes food delicious.
Respect: Humans eh!

Not every thread has to be Socratic. Yes, she offended me. Yes, you offend me for having the hubris to speak for me or for the other posters. Is there something wrong with old farts agreeing with each other? Is there no value in having at least one thread where it is ok to celebrate a commonality a connection to each other? Does every frigin thing have to be about expressing our differences? There are hundreds of other threads created to glorify our differences. This one begun different and it was a beautiful rare thing, at least in my experience on two cents.

We are reaching the point where we all are realizing we are no longer in control of our world.

It's like being on a rollercoaster, we're stuck at the top of the hill, looking down at the drop we know is coming, but we can't do anything to stop it.

A parting swipe is hardly going quietly Karen, maybe you
should examine your motives for being so negative!

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.

Hey, saturnine_sweet...I'm sorry it's taken me so long to write you back, I fell asleep for a quick nap (I hadn't slept in a couple of days) and now I have to run out but I wanted to reply to you quickly and then write you a better reply here's my quick reply: I completely understand being a skeptic about these things, and I have only shared my dream experiences with a few people in my life (and quite reluctantly) because of my fear of being told I was mistaken or silly and being dismissed. I too am accustomed to the "just stop thinking and go to sleep" bunch...but I know, as I'm sure you know, it just is not and never will be that simple. I'm amazed that I've found another who shares the same tie between their emotional/psychological state and their ensuing's so exciting to know that I'm not the only one! To answer your last question, I do feel that some of my precognition dreams were in relation to my anticipation of something happening but that would only be about half...the other half would be completely out of nowhere and in no way related to anything that I anticipated or could have anticipated.

Lots of nice dark haired girls on this site I've noticed.

But nearly all are over in the states!!
