the world.... daily life... questions...
    #1749354 - 07/25/03 09:54 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

What do you all do about the thought that we are living in this fucked up dreamworld called America, where our very survival is based around the suffering and ignorance of life????

I've been doing alot better at enjoying my time and not thinking about these things, but it's something that continues to come back to stare me in the face. 
I don't want this awareness to control me, but I always want to be aware of it, less I become another sleepwalker.

i want to help the situation, but i don't want to be a martyr and give up my whole way of life... which, in all reality, is based around this society called America. It is my home.

I guess the big answer that keeps coming back to me is to be myself as much as possible and fight the influence.  to live a life based around LIFE, not green pieces of paper.

even if the world is not healed overnight, I have to know that I am contributing in my small way, while still remembering to be a human and enjoy a warm bed and a cool breeze without feeling guilty.

thoughts???

Well.. for a while there I was really angry when I came to the realization that our country is "fake". We don't live LIVES! Most people care what someone is wearing more than how they're feeling and American's don't even give each other the time of day anymore!

After a while I just realized I'd just have to live with it because I've had it for too long... If I could I would (i've actually thought about it) gather others like me and head out to some uncivilized area to live as real people but I honestly don't know if I could ever have that in me!

Stay happy!

"What do you all do about the thought that we are living in this fucked up dreamworld called America, where our very survival is based around the suffering and ignorance of life????"

do something good for other people every now and then. In your day to day habits, try not to do anything that does too much damage to the world. If you ever get the opportunity to change things for the better, do it. Work on making yourself stronger through education and other worthwhile experiences, so you can be a better servant to both yourself and the world.

and finally, the hardest one:
try to find the good in all people.

thats about all you can do.

I'm all about the little positive things... I guess they do add up and that is about as much as I can hope for.

Stop caring about other people. Start caring only about yourself.

It solves a lot of problems.

Change of the masses begins with change of yourself. You may not think you are making a diffrence, but thats how the small things work. They go unnoticed by you, and the person they change. You can make a diffrence, and you dont need to sell all your personal belongings and move to africa to do so. Just be aware of what you are doing at all times, and what is considered excessive waste. The outside worlds arnt changing our ways, so maybe the change needs to be done from the inside out. Like you said, this is out home.


now heres a quote from deoxy.org i think that i like :smile:

Needless to say, it hasn't been easy to create an economic system able to produce 358 billionaires while keeping another 1.3 billion people living in absolute deprivation. It took long and dedicated effort by legions of economists, lawyers, and politicians on the payrolls of monied interests to design and implement such a system. It required a radical altering of the dominant culture and the restructuring of many important institutions. It will take a similarly committed effort on the part of civil society to design and put in place an economic system supportive of economic justice and environmental sustainability.

do something radical... Live your dreams. Sew what you want the world to reap one day. Maybe if we can all knit a nice foundation, we will have a world we enjoy, a peacefull world we can co exist in. If we all did what we did as good mycelium we could produce fruits. Fruits of our labor. So dream of what you wish to do, your labor. And see it come true when it fruits :wink:. I think if our generation... US. the younger ones (and some of the old :wink: ) keep it going well between eachother... we can undo what we dont like about this world before us. Much like what ^^^ said.

mm, just venting this issue really cleared my head up alot. there is no easy answer to anything, I'm not going to lose sleep over what I have no power to change, I am just going to continue to live my life in a positive way and help others when I can.

That's all we can do, is live our own life. Can't live anyone else's...
Peace.

sometimes venting will help more than you think. It allows you to share ideas with other people and relieve the pressure of them from your head. Thats why i love this forum. You can tell your deep most fucked up and nnutjob inner secrets and people will be like yea me too heres what i did to fix it. and walla you are cured. ;P
