our generation
    #2453482 - 03/20/04 04:34 AM (12 years, 8 months ago)

the recent UFO thread perked my interest once again with this alien stuff. I'm a pretty big believer in all this and i'm thinking, like also mentioned in the celestine prophecy, in terms of our generation in particular as a group expanding their boundaries and realizing theres definitely a lot more out there, and living outside our little matrix, if you will. Recently i've struck up conversations about this, maybe 20 years ago, wouldve been referred to as "crazytalk" about aliens, infiltrating the gov't good/bad, etc. and everytime i get responses of agreement. Or answer like, 'yeah, i know" where ever i go. First i heard about this stuff from rainbow kids i met in az, then from discovery channel, then of course from a lot of you here in s&p.

It seems like we're all finally coming together and waking up. theres a lot of work to be done, but i see progress.
do you all agree or disagree?

Mindfulness is the aware, balanced acceptance of the present experience.
It isn't more complicated than that.
It is opening to or recieving the present moment, pleasant or unpleasant, just as it is,
without either clinging to it or rejecting it.

yes and we'll have technology to thank. Only in the past decade or so has it been so easy for people everywhere to exchange perspectives and ideas with people everywhere else.

I try and make sure at least the people I know are aware that our current way of life is an artificial reality on many planes and that the only thing real about government is their firepower.

Yeah kids these days definitly have a much broader view on the world..the internet especially has helped with this. I know if I hadn't had the internet for the past 8 years I wouldn't know half of what I do today...

My grandparents are quite the opposite.. they've been around for 60+ years and yet I still know a lot more about things than they do. A lot of older people are like this, they stick to their own views and rarely take into consideration of other beliefs or ideas.. things are definitly starting to change. They do with every generation.

Our lives are at a lot faster pace than past generations...the ball will only keep rollin forever getting faster..

yeah with regards to the fast-paced environment that billions of us have been born in, I think this is where "ADD" and many of these other BOGUS (in my opinion) 'disorders' have come from.

Yeah, I guess people are more informed than ever.

I saw a show on The History Channel about Roswell last night. I believe in aliens, but that show has made me have some serious doubts about what happened in Roswell.

Even if nothing extraoridinary happened there, that doesn't put a dent in the over all picture.

yes things are progressing. It is places like this where we can share ideas with others and for the most part get a decent conversation going. You start to get just hint of the full scope of ideas and thoughts. there are so many smart and intelligent people here now, as there was before, and as there will be in the future. This is one of the few boards with this amount of people that get along for the most part. It FEELS like a community, and this is something essential, if we are to break the barriers between each other and ourselves. Indeed we have a lot to work to do...


--------------------
Annnnnnd I had a light saber and my friend was there and I said "you look like an indian" and he said "you look like satan" and he found a stick and a rock and he named the rock ooga booga and he named the stick Stick and we both thought that was pretty funny. We got eaten alive by mosquitos but didn't notice til the next day. I stepped on some glass while wading in the swamp and cut my foot open, didn't bother me til the next day either....yeah it was a good time, ended the night by buying some liquor for minors and drinking nips and going to he diner and eating chicken fingers, and then I went home and went to bed.---senior doobie

I see more and more people "waking up" every day, it seems. Though I am naturally skeptical about things I have not experiences on my own, I maintiain an open mind about everything I haven't experienced on my own. I know I will find my proof, one way or another, sooner or later :wink:

I think our generation has a good chance of changing things

but we are being handicapped by the older generation.

this is ironic, because the hippie generation wanted to change things to, and they ended up becoming very similar to their parents. I know a lot of ex-hippies who now work for major corporations, drive Lexi, and generally dont care about anything but themselves.

so I guess the challenge for us is to remain true to ourselves and not let the old people mold us into them, the way their parents did.

Yeah.. I think our American presidential candidates are prime examples of two different kinds of 60's kids who grew up into similar (but different) types of men.. George Bush especially has been molded into what he is.

If you are going to post here, try and have some substance to your posts.

OUR GENERATION


our generation has sandals like vietnamese
our generation wears long hair
with our clobbered minds, we still wink an eye to say
meet me, meet me at the bottom of the stairs

our generation whistles in the dark
has faith in faithlessness and blue sky
our heroes now are either none, or ev'ryone
our saints also are only you and i

our generation won't remake this ravished world
our generation can only try
to wink an eye at ev'ryone, yes, ev'ryone
saying meet me at the beginning of the sky


(pete seeger, 1970)

So which generation are we talking about here? My take on the situation: Most people are nifty. The rest are forgettable. The nifty ones are more likely to be ticklish. It's true!

...but we are being handicapped by the older generation.

Yeah, us peace & love types are a real drag. Might as well exterminate the dinosaurs. Try hitchhiking today with the "new" more aware youth...

Hmm, who gave us LSD, peyote, mushrooms, XTC, mj, ayahuasaca, salvia, research chems? Oh yeah, the older generations.

The only handicap is in your mind. Create the world anew if you so desire!

speak for yourself.

you had a chance to make money back when money was actually worth something. you had a chance to buy land before the prices went up. you got a degree 20 or 30 years ago that holds more weight than the degree I work twice as hard to get today. You got to experience sexual intercourse without wearing a trash bag around your dick. You got to experience a time in which law enforcement knew little about drugs and didnt have thermal cameras to peer into people's closets. Did you ever have to worry about getting shot at school when you were young? I did.

at least you're not in the world war 2 generation. because of them we have social security, the federal reserve, and the nation of Israel. thanks a lot grandpa.

That is the morality of today's youth; not yesteryears'. We were a kindler, gentler people...

kinder gentler? thanks for the acid and all that other fun stuff?

i mean, i like psychedelics because its so easy to use, but ultimately i prefer my sacred mystical experiances to be always at my faculty and a little more grounded :P
