I agree with most of the idea, but it isn’t a “select few” who controls the population. It is everyone around us. This might be harsh but humans are conditioned by conformity.
What people around a person does, they will eventually do it whether it is doing drugs or murdering an enemy or lining up in a neat line before a cash counter (hence the various cultures and traditions we have today).
With the various views and perspectives that people have access today, there is less conformity and more chaos (the internet being the epitome of chaos).
The question everyone asks (regardless of their political views) will be “What can we do about it?” No matter how that question is answered someone will object and the only way to push forward with your ideal is to try and persuade as many people as you can that something is right or wrong; Social engineering, subliminal messages, transpersonal psychology, are all tools to that end.
At the end of the day though, the thought that goes in many people’s minds is “I don’t want to be on the losing side…”

I think we are turning our back on things that happened before (maybe time itself). Vague but these days we are always thinking what more we can do with the time we are given, or the time we are losing out by doing things to survival (E.g work). At the end of it all, all you’ve gained from time is memories of moments you created, and probably memories which could have gone better.

Nice post. But from they tone you wrote the story (I think) you didn’t go into details on how you created and maintained your social disguise. There is a strong feeling of disconnect between you and all those around you. I make me wonder, if you helped your children with their personal projects, or worked together on something with your wife (and completed it?). Actually, those things could get cumbersome when they are repeated so many times, just as everything else that you’ve done before. It is difficult to find something to do you once you’ve done and succeeded on so many of them already. As a person can consume a month of information in a day, a person can progress a decade in a year. But what lies at the end of that, might be the question (and answer) you are looking for.

From this, “purpose” is a side effect of everything else, and should only occupy a small part of our consciousness
Basically, just do stuff and purpose will arise from them.

Great post, but is anyone brave enough to ditch things you currently have to pursue something big; it feels like this is what you have to do to follow your bliss?

I think the word “God” defines an entity beyond our perception or comprehension. Something that when we think we grasped it, it goes beyond that again. Its sort of like a light that is there but the closer you get to it the farther it seems to be. Sort of like a guiding light, that tells us to keep going.
Even Gods have Gods.
So the whole point of this article probably telling us, that we have the potential to do anything as long we survive through the milestones.
