Waking Up To The Real World Around Me.

Over the past few years I have been having moments of clarity about what life is really all about and how I have become a slave to debt, money, consuming and wasting things. I have had very little self actualization. due to the pressures of this way of life just fighting to survive another day. Well I have woken up to the matrix. Yes we all live in one... not the same as the movie but close enough....Have you ever imagined a civilization without money? yes it is hard to fathom. It is possible...we are a slave to it everyday.. unable to achieve our real purpose..self actualization.... Next time you drive to work look around you, bill boards , stores, concrete and every turn someone is trying to sell you something, they know at the end of the week you get paid and you gotta have the nicest car, clothes, and latest smart phone.After all your worth as a person is based on all that right? wrong...Do you ever feel like you live in a prison. Well for the first time since I was a child, I feel free in my mind, heart and spirit. I really live in the now and take a look at all the beauty in nature around me. Then I see people in the mall or on the road and they look blank. No smiles only worry.. I wrote this in hopes that others may wake up - and that I may meet others that are awakened. A good book to read is Ekhart Tolle's IN THE NOW and A New Earth.. hope to hear from some of you soon

Hi Katie! I am recently awakened as well, as of a year ago. I am listening to Eckart Tolle on audiobook, and I keep rewinding and relistening. Profound stuff!
