Seeing as this is a community that can see the deeper meaning behind things, does not subscribe to MSM drivel, and can think outside the
"mainstream" box, I would like to ask everyone a question.
How do you deal with people who are still in the dark about things?
Let me give you some background info:
Whenever I'm with a group of people and they begin discussing real world issues and events or spirituality, they always react strongly to what I say.
If I point something out or simply say something that comes from my heart, there is always one person that gets angry and calls me out. What is
interesting about this is this person then causes a chain reaction, so that people who wouldn't ordinarily react that way, will react similarly to
the angry person. It is so strange. Keep in mind, I'm not saying anything that is too way out there. What I do is see things a little differently and
when someone asks my opinion I tell them.
When there is someone, a "big talker" or just basically somebody that talks all the time, it seems like everyone else in the room agrees with his
opinion towards me in order to get his acceptance. This person is usually the one that reacts strongly. This mechanism alone tends to effectively
eliminate all dissenting/differing opinion.
When I attempt to help people "pierce the veil" by saying that I believe we are losing our freedoms for example, or that the financial system is not
what it seems. People look at me with an angry face like this
and tell me what I'm saying is Bull**** but they don't offer anything different
other then the exact same thing I hear from the media, the EXACT same thing the media expresses, it is as if they are parrots.It is so annoying, being
surrounded by these people is tiring and it feels like they take away my energy.
I guess what bothers me the most is that I have learned and am learning so much about everything in this world. It just feels like one's mind has
escaped from something...like having a realization but the problem is you are actually physically still "stuck". (sorry, kinda hard to describe)
What amazes me the most is being able to understand human behavior to some extent, understanding why people act the way they do. People talking about
each other behind their backs, blatantly lie to each other, seek acceptance, seek love...just the things that people do. But, it all becomes tiring,
very tiring once you can see it for what it actually is. I have a friend who stresses himself out all the time studying almost every hour of the day.
He is brilliant, but if one looks at him he looks 10 years older then he actually is. He kills himself everyday just to study, compares himself to
everyone in his class, feels terrible if someone in class knows something he doesn't. Why does he do this to himself? He wants to get a job, to live
in a middle-class home, going to work from 9-5 and that's it, killing himself to join the rat race.
It is as if everyone is living in lies and deception and yet when these lies are questioned they get angry and will fight to defend them. I guess the
reason I feel so tired and drained of energy is that I just feel kind of bad, like pity. I have nothing against working hard, but what bothers me is
the reason for it. My friend doesn't seem happy, he's not working for his own truth. He is not pursuing his own happiness, he is pursuing the false
happiness that was fed to us all when we were young. Or his wholehearted belief in the government and that it is doing the for us and that the economy
will be restored soon enough. His belief that the drone strikes were "unfortunate" but they are only for killing terrorists.
To be honest, sometimes I wish I stayed in the dark, that I didn't discover all this information.
