call for a new way of life
    #4608125 - 09/01/05 02:33 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)

We find our selves living in the time of
KOYAANISQATSI
ko.yaa.nis.qatsi (from the Hopi Language) n. 1. crazy life.
2. life in turmoil. 3. life out of balance. 4. life disintegrating.
5. a state of life that calls for another way of living.

This is my reflection on the movie KOYAANISQATSI. I suddenly find
myself living in a small Iowa town, population 900. We are on the outskirts of a larger
city, Waterloo/Cedar Falls. The first thing I thought about while watching this movie was
the way I see pop culture influence the masses. Society is becoming more robotic in nature
every decade that passes. We are relying on things that we have actually not produced so
in theory we are kind of screwing ourselves over. This is alarming for me, I have lived in very rural areas
and in metropolitan centers and I can just feel the negative energy strangely choking the life
out of me in these urban environments, I sympathize strongly with any foreigner who says, America is
the imperialistic capitalistic bully of the globe. We waste so much of mother natures gifts to us
and she is stronger than any peice of technology that any mind could ever create. With the
sudden rise in natural disasters that makes me wonder if we are being warned...to appreciate what we have before we lose on a massive scale
unfortunately I think this is inevitible. I feel cynical about this only because I feel the time has come
there is a lot of positive stuff happening in our world but we have so far to go its time to find a new way
of life before we lose the ones we have.

I can feel a shift in the natural balance of things, I feel like we are in for changes whether we are ready or not. I am hoping for change at any cost necessary.

question is will YOU be ready to make that change?
can YOU be the first one to make that change?

absolutely, I have been actively participating in a lifestlye of positive expression. I have simplified my life whenever possible and can feel positive growth and energy surrounding me and the people I interact with everyday.

:thumbup:

I fell ya! We definitely need to make a change, a drastic change, to our lives if we are to survive another century.

I can feel it coming, too. Like a storm on the horizon.


--------------------
You're here because you know something.
What you know you can't explain,
But you feel it;
You've felt it your entire life.
That there's something wrong with the world.
You don't know what it is, but it's there....
Like a splinter in your mind...
Driving you mad.

I feel it too. Just not sure what to do about it. Head for the woods? Move to Burneo? Join the Greenpeace? Eat some more mushrooms? Buy a gun and Mad Max clothing? :beatup:
