You're one of those loveable chums who hopes that 2012 brings the world enlightenment instead of rapture, aren't you? I know how you feel.
I've wanted the same thing you've wanted so bad, it hurts. You cannot believe how spiritually draining work is on me. Every day before work, I sit
there for a hour screaming to myself in my head "I DON'T #ING WANNA GO!!! WHEN WILL I WIN THIS? WHEN WILL IT BE ENOUGH!?!? WHEN WILL THE WORLD STOP
SUCKING MY PRECIOUS LIFE AWAY FOR TEN PIECES OF PAPER I #ING HATE BUT AM FORCED TO DEPEND ON FOR DEAR #ING LIFE AN HOUR!?!?!?!?"
My job's not even a bad job. I love the people I work with, and I get decent benefits. The work isn't grueling.
I just feel imprisoned by the fact that I have to be there pretty much every day or else I'll get fired.
Every weekend, I'm so happy. Everybody's working for the weekend, ya know? But is that the only reason we work? To get to the weekend? To get to
where we're too old and ravaged by the waer and tear on our bodies to even enjoy life fully like we were planning to?
I have to fool myself in order to put on a happy face and go about like this is all perfectly normal, and that becomes a pinch of a bit harder every
People are need machines, and the more people there are in this world, the harder you will have to work in order to secure yourself even a menial lot
in life. We have been fooled into desiring material goods/money. We're taught from birth into believing that MONEY and STATUS is our lifeblood, and
if our lifeblood is threatened, we're taught from birth that this is our one and only chance to get it all and keep it all, so that is why we fight
and kill and do very cruel things. We are afraid of dying and not leaving a material legacy behind. This is the problem. It's really a spiritual
The first step towards this money free society is to correct everyone's spiritual journeys. Just come out on national live TV, announce to the world
that all religions are fake, all governments are corrupt, there is life after death, and that there will be plenty of chances for EVERYONE to succeed
in one form of life or another.
The reason we think we need money and things so much is because we don't think we have enough time to get those things. If we didn't have to worry
about dying and that being it, we wouldn't need to rush, need to reproduce, need to buy, need to sell, need to steal, kill, control, manipulate, and
lust over people and things so much. We just need to get the message across to everyone that they just need to chill because we've got plenty of
infinity to do and have everything. I know existence is sometimes sad and confusing, but we need to comfort each other because THIS IS A ROUGH THING,
Once the majority of the people slow their pace and begin to ease up about just being, then we can convince them to give up their precious money.
We just gotta let everyone know that they are loved and that they may not feel important right now, but we'll guarantee that, without them, all of
this couldn't be possible, and that once again, we love them dearly, and when they finally do leave, the peple that mater will remember and miss them
We're all still that newborn baby that came hopelessly screaming and traumatized into this strange world, and we still need that nurturing, to a
point, because we are the same person we were when we were born, just manipulated endlessly until we lose ourselves in what we percieve as everything
else. Once you realize that you are still that baby, it's really an emotional moment, and you have infinite compassion for everyone who's helpless
and confused and angry and violent, because you remember how you felt not knowing anything or doing anything right. It was just one frustration after
another, fumbling through the first few years. Finally, you're used to it... but you're still no smarter than you were when you were a baby.
I bet when we were born, we all asked ourselves the same question we ask ourselves now and every second we are alive. Why am I here?
I dunno about you, but I'm NOT here to be a consumer, an employee, a patriot, a deciple, none of those. I am here because I am, and I'm just trying
to get to the next here with a smile on my face.
Why can't we just facilitate each other through this? Why does it have to have a price to get help with existing?
Money makes my mother cry. I don't like things that make my mother cry.
Good topic. Thanks, felt good to type a response.
