Destroy Your Life, But Fasten Your Seatbelt First!

Anonymous (@) 9 years, 6 months ago

just a little discussion thread open to stories of how “realization” may have assaulted your senses and general existence up to that point. and by “realization” i don’t mean full-out enlightenment or any such – just, the waking-up, or beginning of a waking-up process that may have just blown your before-that life out of the water. maybe it scared the shit out of you, maybe it fueled a nervous breakdown. i don’t know. just curious.

@rickyferdon, perfect. Since this was fairly recent for me ill share because I couldn’t be happier at new discoveries.

Sort of random as it probably was for most of us. I broke up with my girl, moved in with some friends (were back together now but thats besides the point) lol. Intense drinking and getting high pursued along with a great summer of boating and jet skiing. I work at home so started getting distracted with Netflix and music documentaries. I attribute my transformation to the movie that came out about Bob Marley and his life. I have always been into reggae but this was different. I started getting into all sorts of documentaries from the Beatles to Nirvana. All these guys seemed to share a similar view of the world or life. Live it up and question everything basically.

This led to me watching tons of documentaries from Zeitgeist to Fast Food Nation etc. Then BOOM my brother tells me about this site and it was all over from there lol. Since then I have gotten involved in researching political issues, all sorts of stuff about the food supply, spirituality, mediation, yoga, psychedelics etc. Started reading books which I never ever ever did. I think I read one full novel in my life until this past year. I think I’m on book 5 or 6 now.

I started gettin more into greenhouses and gardening and all that too. Really learning how to reduce my carbon footprint per we because that’s where all this had led me. I actually became more motivated to travel, now my girl and I have started moving state to state while still working to enjoy what the US has to offer. I’m always working on a cookbook to publish and am able to cook daily which I love doing. This allows me to know pretty much what I’m putting in my body as this has become a huge importance to me.

So now I’m here, learning, traveling, working on my future plans to get out of corporate America. Having ups and downs but overall I’m way better off now that I have started to wake up and pay attention to the world around me.

I’m guessin that’s what you were looking to get from people. Peace. Love. Good Vibes all around

I entered a ‘dark night of the soul’ which lasted two years when I started seeking truth.

@rickyferdon, Hell. Every moment was unbearable.

Intense bodily sensations, pain, anxiety and grief nearly everyday, interspersed with short bursts of euphoria every few weeks.
