I'm not sure about the rest of you guys, but its been tough for me to spend longer than 20 minutes on ATS these past few months without getting straight depressed.
I've pulled back my visits quite substantially, and its not so much because the content is changing, but because I am starting to get to know myself better.
There is so much bad news on this site (and granted knowledge is power), but what bugs me worse is that the responses to the news are also negative. Only very few people see the good in things.
So instead of writing a thread, bashing all the negative energy on ATS, thus creating more negative energy, I wanted to share a few words of wisdom with you guys, because I truly believe that all we have to do to change the world is change the way we look at it...

Don't blame anyone, never complain of anyone or anything

because fundamentally you have built up your life.

Accept the responsibility of edifying yourself and the courage to accuse you in

your own failure to start over again, correcting yourself.

The triumph of the true man arises from the ashes of his mistakes.

Don't complain about your surroundings or the people around you,

There are those who succeeded in the same place.

The circumstances are good or bad

depending on your strength of heart.

Never complain of your poverty, loneliness or your luck.

Face it with courage and accept it, they are the results of your acts and

the proof that you will win.

Don't feel frustrated with your own failures, neither unload them on someone else.

Accept yourself now or you will go on justifying yourself like a child,

remember that any time is good to start,

and non is so terrible to give in.

Stop lying to yourself, you are the result of yourself,

of your necessity, your pain, your failure.

If you have been the ignorant, the irresponsible one,

you only you, no one could have done it for you.

Don't forget that the cause of your present is your past,

as the cause for your future is the present.

Learn from the brave, the strong, copy the violent, the energetic ones

the winners, those that don't accept the current situations, those who succeeded despite of


Think less in your problems and more in your work, and without feeding them,

your problems will die.

Learn to arise from your pain, and to be greater than is the greatest of your


Look at the mirror of yourself.

Start to be sincere with yourself, recognizing you for your courage,

for your will and for your weaknesses to keep justifying yourself.

Remember that inside you there is a force that can do everything,

recognizing you, freer and stronger, and you will stop being a puppet of

the circumstances.

You are your destiny, and no one can replace you in its foundation.

Wake up and look at the mountains and breathe the sun of dawn.

You are part of the force of life,

And don't you ever think of luck, for luck is the excuse of failures.

Pablo Neruda
Nobel Prize in Literature 1971

Thoughts manifest consciousness, and consciousness manifests reality.
Its time to stop living and thinking in reflection to our outer worlds and start making our outer worlds reflections of our inner world... our thoughts.
Its one thing to know this, and another to act on it.

Knowledge changes people; Knowledge when acted upon transforms people.

It is obvious that our thoughts shape our actions, and thus the world.
If we keep reacting to all the negatives in this world with more negatives, then the inevitable outcome will be negative.

ATS, I love you all, but I challenge you over the next few days, weeks, months, years, and the rest of your life to try and find the good in everything.
Try and see that happiness, joy, love, doesn't exist anywhere in the outer world, it only exists inside ourselves.
All you have to do is think it to make it real...

If October comes and goes with out a whimper I will have to disconnect myself for a little while.

It is very draining keeping up with the moves of the NWO. Never has it seemed so close and never have I been so overwhelmed with so much information.

I am just so tired and I can't sleep.

I feel ya buddy.
I think its important to take the info we get and see it and how it affects us in our daily lives, but we shouldn't get too worked up over it.
If we think all doom and gloom, then thats whats going to eventually happen.
If not on a global scale, then at least in our own lives.

If you believe there is a universal subconscious, then we can add to it by thinking positively. With that view, we're spreading a little bit of positivity to everyone that picks up on it, and since emotions attract similar and like emotions, they'll start thinking more positive and it will spread. Microcosm first. And again, if it doesn't work on a global scale, i guarantee it will have an effect on your personal life

Pleasant news is fine...

Great post ... Since I'm perpetually on verge of exploding at all the political rhetoric this post is a great change. Change we can believe in.
