Anyone else bored with earth?
PostPosted: Sun 25 Apr, 2010  Reply with quote

It feels cramped, small, and boring.
I mean yeah its beautiful, and if I were ever able to get off, I know I would want to come back.
But I cant really stand it here. Feeling kind of imprisoned lately.
I know it sounds stupid cause its kind of impossible to get off,
but I cant help it.

I mean what if this planet is just the beginning of our existence?
Just the introduction to what we consider life.

I also find myself tiring of all these little branches that we've spent our time creating and dwelling on. Not things like the internet, just little things..

I mean seriously, Tivo ? Do we need 2,000 television channels + the ability to record them all?
Since when did convenience become all that matters? Is that what life is?
How to get by easier until death? How to spend less time using your mind and... standing?
What value does convenience hold?
I just wish we would spend less time inventing new ways to make us lazier and fatter, and a little bit more sending people out there.
Why don't people care?
We are on planet earth, and in space is... EVERYTHING else.
I just dont get it.

And yeah, I know there is alot the government doesn't tell us,
but still I think we would know by now If we had already contacted
another life form.

I know me saying this doesn't mean anything, its basically just a 19 year old college student whining but...
haha Thought it would be interesting to discuss.

The people nowadays are trying to corrupt us, since we aren`t shaped for lazyness. The goverment are just ret-rds. Atleast they can tell us something, what`s the point of hiding every clue to outerlife?
We would come much farther...
I would think people would panic... for 3 weeks, then it`s already over..

I know what you mean. Life seems empty and I know it doesn't have to be. I want to escape Earth - as in ciment jungles, polution, money, violence, superficial thinking, 2,000 tv channels lach1 and all that stuff. And I want to escate TO Earth, the Earth with fresh water, food, and air, fluffy animals, music, climbing trees, friendly, caring people that are able to have thoughts beyond what they are wearing and how much booze they can drink. (Maybe that's just where I live and the people I know eh )

Anyway, I could ramble on (a.k.a. whine) for pages and pages and sound like a total downer and seem like I judge everysingle person for every single thing... but I won't. grin

earth is really cool but man is a little bit insane collectively ,

i would love to "get off" and explor ethe positive planets where only love exists, then come back to this when it grows up and matures a little and we are more focused on love and improvisational jams than britney spears jesus in the side while chugging pepsi ?

but u know that sentence was judgmental and that is what CAUSES negativity and feeling stuck, focusing on what you don't want

so i guess we have to let people to do the insane things they do and keep ourselves in higher cheer and work towards being the change that shifts reality into being sane and peaceful and good and loving an dkind , because there are good people, and they stay away from the bad ones generally

because its poles on a magnet,
a calm person calms the agitated just by existing in the state of calmness, its dog psychology

ex : i went to six flags and had fun but the people there were sometimes low ,
and almost a fight broke out while in line ,

i kept thinking about Buddha and using this mantra and my lovely girlifriend swears she saw the Dalai Lama there in the ark smile and wave at her

this mantra also gave my roomate dalai lama dreams while we were at the ashram,
how powerful just BEING GOOD is

( many enlightened beings can bi-locate and teleport, I don't know if he can, but SALUTATIons TO HIS KINDNESS AND COMPASSION , i have spoken with him ever so briefly on facebook and met a ver close firend of his once at a temple )

we have to be patient and know that we are making a difference, at the same time the rest need to learn faster

i mean the simplest lessons like how to love and how to take care of the body so that you feel good all the time then you are bright and cheery, these things ,

Yeah, that sums it up real good :D

@Petter, from what I've read on FML it could only make you feel good by seeing that there are other people that are worse...? or maybe I got the wrong impression. (but fight orcs, heck yeah! )

@Lord Antares, I can't stop reading GMH. I'm like on page 30 shy2 It's good to know that at least somewhere else there are some people that do such amazing things smile

I would absolutely LOVE to see another planet sometime in my life! grin There's this PC game I play called Spore, where you can create a creature and evolve it from a single cell to an intergalactic empire! You can colonize any of literally thousands of planets from frozen balls of ice to planets so hot, their oceans are all molten lava!

Video games aside, from a scientific point of view, there would be MASSIVE adjustments to be made if we inhabit another planet: Seasons may not exist, since the planet would have to be at an angle. Time would be completely different, with different lengths for days and years. And of course, they all have a difference in gravity.

Yes, I am getting a bit tired of Earth and some of its people, but there's always something new to do just on this planet, let alone an entire universe's worth!

As do I.

I used to feel like there was always something new to do
on this planet until a couple years ago. Its just kind of all the
same now. I always thought I would be shocked seeing the differences
when exploring other parts of earth.
Then I went to the other side of the earth and multiple other places
and realized that Its all just the same.

I wish I could be content here.

have you read the galactic federation of light thread ?

there's lots and lots of evidence that something more than we think is going on in a good kind of way ,

I have done quite a bit of research on The galactic federation of light.
Have you ever read that supposed "channeled" letter that was supposed to be from them?
called "Do you wish that we show up" or something like that? .... extremely interesting
I'm obviously extremely skeptical of the whole thing, because I mean people have been making these types of claims for my entire life.
Alot of it is quite convincing, and I want it to be true more than anything.
This is a quote from that message:


Quote:
We can offer you a more holistic vision of the universe and of life, constructive interactions, the experience of fair and fraternal relationships, liberating technical knowledge, eradiction of suffering, controlled exercise of individual powers, the access to new forms of energy and, finally, a better comprehension of consciousness.

We cannot help you overcome your individual and collective fears, or bring you laws that you would not have chosen, work on your own selves, individual and collective effort to build the world you desire, the spirit of quest to new skies.


It's just so perfect, and It makes me so depressed when I read it,
cause I just know that nothing can really offer that.
Not in wherever it is we exist anyway.
Here nothing truly special happens. In my life experience I've found that even things that seem absolutely ground shattering, are just cheap tricks.


This is where I found that message btw, it starts more towards the bottom:
