|Why are you here?|
For years I have had a gut feeling that something was "off" with the life I was leading. I tried to explain it to my family, they simple said 'forget it, this is just the way life is and it isn't going to change'. Well of course I couldn't accept this and simply kept "fighting the system"... This just lead to more problems and more fallings-out with friends, family, girlfriends etc., over something I could not fully explain, a mere "gut-feeling". To be honest I felt lost, I knew that it wasn't a need to be rebellious that led me to feel this way. I knew that there was something deep down inside trying to make its way out, it just didn't know how... Anyway the story goes on but for now the reason I am here is because I was going to enroll with an organisation known as T.I.G.E.R.S. and one of the prerequisites was that I read "Ishmael". I bought the book and for whatever reason set it aside and got on with my mundane life. Unfortunately or fortunately[who knows?] I never enrolled to the organisation but I did keep hold of the book. Yesterday[over a year later] I decided to pick it up and give it a try, to my amazement it gave me great insight on why I may have been feeling the way I did all these years. And for that I thank you Daniel Quinn for further opening my eyes and giving me the reassurance that I am not alone on this Earth. Upon finishing the book I looked up the website given and here I am, hoping to become a member of this community and it's future achievements.
|Any other personal information/resources/advice/ideas to share?|
I have always been interested in the tribal way of life, for years I have studied shamanism and all that there is to know about communion with Nature[Mother Earth]. This fascination for the "real world" around me[as opposed to the world most of the civilized people see as the world] has been with me since day one. I am a deep thinker and meditator[for lack of a better word], however as of late I have been almost forced off my path by those around me... It is difficult getting back to the way I was but I am working on it, as well as working on those around me.
