I don’t feel as if I am waiting on anything. If anything, I’m too impatient for that. Which has led to both good and bad decisions in life.

But I do feel as if something BIG is coming. Just don’t know what it is yet. And for the most part, I’m good with that. I actually feel rather peaceful lately.

I agree, to a point, yet I suppose I am also an eternal optimist. Things do add up, yet the more precipitous the moment becomes, the greater opportunity there is for someone, or a group of someones, to do something extraordinary--to reset that ticking clock, to empty out that sinking cup.

Other than Zelda, and FF11, I can't get into anything other than Western RPG's ( I include Witcher, and Gothic as Western style RPG's) Japanese Anime doesn't do it for me.......but to tie this in to the subject......some were saying they are "waiting" for their high purpose or something....I'm not waiting for anything...I am trying to jam in as much playing, loving, learning, experiencing as I can before this quick sand life runs out. I am spoiled that I can spend the rest of my life in those pursuits. I truly love life and don't feel "unfulfilled" by not "plugging" in to a career. I will keep renewing my attorney's license just in case but I will be happier if I never need to use it.

It is such a good feeling to know we are not separated and alone in our experience. Thank you to everyone who posted their experience here so far.

When my friend Tayesin passed away recently I wanted to get up and stand up, to start breaking down the locked doors, to DO the things I always wanted to do that I haven't done yet. But for some reason that I cannot put my finger on, I still seem to be in a holding pattern, almost as if I am waiting for something to break or give. And those doors remain locked.

I'm 53 years old and have been well aware of my path here for a long time, despite not wanting to go down that path in my early adult years. Tay helped me take up the torch and learn, but even he didn't have the answers we both sought for the past couple of years. I think that was the cause of his grumpy old man phase


So, here we all are, waiting. waiting for what ? We don't know. We had ideas, but little of that has happened yet.

I tend to avoid a lot of contact with the general population because of the dense cloud of negativity that surrounds any area where people congregate. And yet when out and about on my motorcycle I meet normal people who are honest, caring people. And they help me maintain my faith in humanity, despite what I see each day.

Thank you all again for showing me I am not alone.

I had to sign up so I could contribute to this thread, please take a moment to see my hello in the new members area...

I have felt the same way for a long time. It wasn't until recently though that whatever it is, seems to feel like it will be something revealed very soon, almost to a point of anxiety at times if I think about it too much. My wife has recently told me that she feels the same way when I finally tried to open the discussion with her about it.

It's almost like an awakening, or a possible realization coming to fruition..

I think it's coming to a head that modern civilization is at a plateau. Can't keep going up the same way as before. Most easy resources have been spent, and it's not exactly good to break new ground because the sustaining capacity of Earth's environment is nearing it's limit. (Not just in terms of open space being left alone, but absorbtion capacity in dealing with pollution.) In terms of economics, markets are starting to become saturated and there's nowhere better to run off to. Almost everything looks like a tail-end problem with diminishing returns.

So unless civilization learns to fly somehow, there isn't much else to do than try to hold ground where you're at or go over that precipice and I'd suspect it's a long way down.

I think we're at a point where a decision needs to be made. Either we get into space for real and develop cheap "almost free" energy, cling desparately to the status quo while economizing existing resources (which explains the prolonged feeling of being in some kind of waiting game), or if things keep getting too crowded a lot of people are going to be pushed off the top and it's not going to be pretty.

It's like 3 "E's" need to be finessed in the right direction. Those would be economy, education, and environment. We either defuse the population bomb (which seems to be happening due to economic pressure in developed countries - that birthrate is going down), redirect productivity right out of Earth's orbit (So everyone has somewhere new to go if desired. I know if I had more room and freedom by leaving to colonize the Moon, Mars, or asterioids I wouldn't mind going.), or fail and let things blow up and hope there's something left to clean up afterwards.

Felt the exact same for a long time. No need to explain as other have already.

Doubting it's a coincidence but I don't know why.

Just what exactly is this grand finale going to be...? Something positive or negative? What if it only appears positive at first glance? It could be another trick to further screw others into other deceptions...

It seems to be the name of the game, no? Trick after trick, eventually you see through it. Or so I hope

Okay, not to take this thing too far down the philosophical road but.........my metaphor will allow the cup to change sizes based on outside influences and actions.....but I am taking into consideration that this thread, which to me, seems to be a bright light that has brought like minded moths to it. I haven't seen who has posted in a while since I am spending so much time on my own posting, but I haven't seen the usual thread killing posts from those that simply have to post on every single thread that refreshes on their "Recent Posts" screen....once again I will cross my fingers that I'm not jinxing this.....anyway....
These people, and myself, feel something and what makes it interesting to me, (besides me feeling it) is that these are like minded people in so many different ways, like if they met they would be great friends, and the curious absence of those that represent other populations of people...maybe I'll give a shot of explaining that better.

Also as if you could almost feel it in the air sometimes too, kind of like a stillness or the calm before a storm...at times.

Indeed.

If a group like this was to get together, the enemy would tremble.

Have you discovered what you're waiting for?



I do not want this to come across harshly or burst anyones bubble because not long ago I could really relate to this and I still understand why so many people feel this way yet I also understand that it is a false trap in all of our minds caused by the junk that is fed into our heads.

All I can say is that waiting for yourself to come alive is what is going on with so many and if you wait around too long it will be over in the blink of an eye for this life we are all sharing will only be here once.



Find your purpose and live it regardless of the crap going on in the world or watch it pass you by, choice is yours regardless of what you might think is stopping you. Do not mistake any of this for ignorance either, but just know that the world is not going to change when good people sit on their backsides waiting for it to happen.

It's funny I just sent a smylee a u2u giving her a personal thank you, because this is the first thread i can remember here where I feel that other posters were so understanding of each other, it is like I could have any or all of you over and we could probably talk about all kinds of things for hours. I am sure there must be other threads where this has happened, but this one feels very natural. I told her she did a really good thing today and this is something I'd like to see more of. I think it is a main reason I keep coming to ats, kinda like a tiny sanctuary amidst the howling storm of the world.

I didn't even realize it was posted by you at first...When I saw it was yours, I couldn't help but break out into a big ol' smile.

I have to smile...one "old man" to another...I played Final Fantasy 11 on PC for about 5 years...quit just about 2 years ago. I recently started up the PS3 and was replaying old favorites...God of War trilogy and Lords of Shadow...

Anywho...back on topic...

For our new psychologist...I have read a little Stanislov Grof. Primarily his work in altered states of consciousness and reality.

If you look around at the state of our world, economic, social, environmental...it's enough to make you sick and overwhelmed. I know people are getting frustrated with our Governments (I know I do often) but consider this...
We are at a place no civilization has ever been before and we have a lot of problems. I think Governments around the world are trying to hold it all together but eventually, it won't work anymore.

Not saying that this is what we are all "waiting for"...it's just something I have noticed.

Maybe, it's as another poster put it...we are all looking for something that just "clicks"...something that says "I matter, I have something this world needs and they just don't know it yet"...just a thought as I puzzle over our common "anticipation".

It is a wonderful thread and a wonderful sharing of thought and emotion. There is something very hopeful and refreshing experiencing this phenomena with others after keeping it to yourself for so many years.

I think I get your point. But honestly...I think most people feel it. I think it is one of the things that the average population is trying to blot out of their minds with their endless self-medicating.

I'm 52 and my life isn't even 1/2 over...what gives?

I think everyone whose been attracted to this site in one way or another has a feeling deep inside there's more to this life than what we know. I'm also in the category of feeling an anticipation of something that will present itself that will change our belief system to the core.

The attraction to finding the "truth" is sometimes overwhelming with me. I've been researching and searching for pieces of the puzzle since my teens. I've also had a few instances in my life where I should have lost my life, but have always escaped without a bruise or scrape.
