Are people really waking up?
    #2314250 - 02/08/04 01:57 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

Supposedly people are waking up to whats real in the universe, like ideas in posts from Shroomism. Is this really happening? I can identify with it, but I cant decide if people have possibly always felt this way and chosen not to speak of it because the means we do (anonaminity [sp] of the internet), or if the internet is actually just helping to push along whats true.

I feel like I am in a period of change in my life but many 23 year olds feel the same. I know the internet has made psychedelics more accessible through information. If there wasn't an internet I wouldn't even be pondering this question because I wouldn't have had access to other minds to help me along.

Sorry, I'm not too sure what you mean by this. And how do you know that what is "real" is in fact real. "How do you define 'real' ?", said morpheus.

Sometimes I get this feeling like I'm on the brink of something much larger than myself, some great positive change...but this brink has lasted for a few years now.  Could be the threshold of a mental health issue.


Let's hope not  :thumbup:

But on a serious note, I am becoming aware of how my perspective has changed, is changing.  I've always said one of the finest days in my life was when I realized I didn't know everything.

Well, it appears that the alarm is going off...

However, I find that many insist on hitting the "snooze button".


When the sence of urgency increases, many more will wake.



Hopefully it won't come down to a situation of "being already late for work and still somehow managing to miss the bus".

"I've always said one of the finest days in my life was when I realized I didn't know everything. "

read my sig.
Actually, now that you mention it , I have noticed a change in how I perceive the world. The past 2 years or so, I have felt like I have been "advancing my consciousness" each day. And it just keeps building and building. I think the internet has really had an effect on this. Or maybe it's the drug use.....

You also have to realize, that like TV, the internet can subject you to a lot of garbage. It takes a certain kind of person to want to use the net for something beneficial, rather than the yahoo chat rooms, internet gambling, pornography, sports pools, etc. The internet can be used beneficially and it can be abused, and I think the majority of web serfers are guilty of the latter.

Instead of saying whats real in the universe I should have said whats not real about our physical perceptions. Or something. If you know what i mean youll probably understand it when I say its something i cant definitively refer to with any words or terms I know.

manna man, I never noticed your sig..."right on" to that.

"Actually, now that you mention it , I have noticed a change in how I perceive the world. The past 2 years or so, I have felt like I have been 'advancing my consciousness' each day. And it just keeps building and building."

Yeah...this describes this brink feeling I've had. I'm beginining to wonder if there's ever going to be a definitive end point where I'll be aware of the change. The way things feel, the way things have lasted (things refers to this alleged growth sensation), there may not be an end to it. Or maybe I missing some thing to move me forward...some missing piece...

Woah, okay now I'm babbling a bunch of fluff.

Geeno, I don't think there is a way to determine what's real and what isn't real. Most people decide what's real based on how familiar things seem. Reality is dictated by perception, personal view.

I know, I know "reality is what you make it" is such a hippie way of looking at things (damn hippies)...but I think it has some relevance. Different levels of conciousness mean different levels of perception...make sense?

I wouldn't say that people are waking up in any esoteric or mystical sense, but society and the universe is about change. No way of life will completely endure forever, thus the current society (for most people based off ignorant bliss in material, overindulgence in the carnal pleasures etc.) will have to change as well. I see many people starting to become more conservative, and more concerned about the way the entire world functions. More people are tired of chasing the dollar, and rather help someone instead. Of course this is not true for the mass populous, but the undercurrents are there. Just as the day when a female was not allowed to vote or hold many personal rights slipped away, so will these days of excesses and ignorance. Call it waking up, call it a paradigm shift, but society will not remain stagnant.

You guys get what I mean, thats what Im trying to say I just suck with words sometimes. Im not trying to make this a point of defining reality, Im just talking about the additions to the general societal reality. Again its just hard to make me thoughts words.

TrueBrode made some good points. I don't know if people are "waking up," but I believe that more and more people are finding themselves in similar circumstances like that of myself and manna man. Maybe there's a momentum gathering?

people may be waking up, but most of us have no clue as to how we're supposed to continue from here..

OK I feel awake, but what the hell am I supposed to do now to assist necessary changes? I feel helpless - its like all I can do it spread the word and I don't have a loud enough voice for spreading it very far.

we need an outline or something

Strumpling, I dig what you say. Like Some sort of defined next step is missing? This is why I figure (theorize) a sort of momentum is gathering. Maybe that critical mass mumbo that James Redfield mentioned in The Celestine Prophecy could be valid?

I'm not familiar with the specific critical mass you're referring to, but I'm familiar with the term and I think I know what you're talking about..

I'm starting to think that maybe things really DO have to get as bad as possible before anybody's willing to REALLY start figuring out something new - maybe our leaders fucking around and being selfish and all of this is simply happening because it NEEDS to in order to get people fully awake - perhaps this system has to crash completely before it is replaced.

I've just always hoped we could see this coming and slow the momentum to a crawl, and eventually turn things around early so we don't have to deal with worldwide chaos

"It seems to be a truism of important shifts in thinking that many minds begin to ask the same question at roughly the same time."

From "The Field" by Lynne McTaggart

(I am going to apologize to everyone in advance, but I will probably be citing this book a lot until I'm done reading it and re-reading it. Says a lot of good schitt.)

The day will come when, after harnessing the ether, the winds, the tides, gravitation, we shall harness for God the energies of love. And, on that day, for the second time in the history of the world, man will have discovered fire.  -Teilard
