Who We Are and Why We Might Like to Be Someone Else

Who We Are and Why We Might Like to Be Someone Else Catzilla at the Crossroads SMITH, Sophya

Four years ago I came across a passage about how when the Kali Yuga (the apocalypse to most of you) hits, saying the Name of God is the only thing that will get us through the coming difficulties. Most of us are becoming increasingly nervous because the handwriting is on the wall: the systems that weve superimposed on top of our world (financial and resource mismanagement to name two) are coming apart at the seams.

It cuts to the chase, its where the rubber meets the road, and its more than capable of making good on its promise to help us get a life. Im beginning to see the time that we spend here on earth as a rare and precious opportunity to accomplish something that cant be accomplished once we leave. The kicker is that we spend most of our lives enveloped in an underlying and mostly unconscious current of dissatisfaction (life sucks and then Im gonna die).
