    I'm 15 myself and I can't say I ever enjoyed social media whatsoever.I like being able to communicate with my friends by texts or facetime when we are not hanging out in person,but I still don't like the whole insta culture and stuff.I tried to have a successful insta account for a while,but It just made me unhappy and stressed.What I think is a pitty is that when adults see me they just think I'm like so many others my age.Whenever they talk about "the good old days" i'ts awfully tempting to say anything,but of course I can't because I would get responses stating I wouldn't be able to know how it was back then.While I actually do.But I can't just start lecturing them about past lives etc, because they would just laugh and think i'ts just another "teenage phase".Or adults who use the "I'm older than you so I'm wiser than you and have experienced more" or "you haven't actually lived yet" immensely annoy me.Because...what do they know?I may be hundreds of years older than them in soul age lol who knows

    Where I am, saying anything about reincarnation is guaranteed to get a side-eyed glance and reduction in further association with me - you may never be able to freely express what you know.

    Yes definitely.I shall say people are getting a bit too comfortable with themselves and the internet.Back in the day incidents like leaked nude pictures wouldn't be able to happen because there wasn't anything like the world wide web.If someone would want to send a in appropriate picture to their partner the would have to take it with an actual camera and sent it with a letter or something,but before this would happen they would have enough time to think about it.Nowadays sending such thing only takes one click,so people don't really think about such desicions anymore.Woah I could become a psychologist this way lol.By responding to people on here I start to think more about humans and how they could possibly think about stuff

    Yeah whenever I tell people I believe in reincarnation they think I'm mental. I've learned now to sadly just keep my mouth shut about my beliefs. Still others think I'm mental.

    I stupidly told my sister about pl's since she wanted to discover hers.I just told her I lived before and that's it,because If I would tell her any details she would look at me differently like I was insane and use it against me.Currently she is begging me to tell anything,but I won't give ino_O

    Vouge,

    Interesting in how you feel about the year 2020. I feel (I'm a empath in this lifetime) That something is going to occur that will change the planet on a global scale. Meaning the global consciousness of planet earth is now shifting from a late young soul stage of spiritual development to a mature soul stage. This means the heart chakra of planet earth is opening up changing souls that live here at present on a fundamental level of awareness. In the past man for the last 2000 has been using power and the lower ego to control the masses thru fear and money. However with female awareness taking hold on planet earth this is changing and balancing out man's consciousness to look inward to see that we are all inner connected as a species. And that love not power will change us complete into another state of spiritual consciousness. Many young people today are worried about global warming. Which we all should because this is the only planet as far as we know that is home to humanity. And we are the care takers of it. If we don't do something now!! the young generation today won't have a planet to call home. So we are at a conjures of our spiritual development as man could go either way.

    Save our home and learn to become in harmony with it and each other or turn our back on it and we will become extinct as a species. In which case as soul we will all have to find another planetary system to reincarnate within the physical universe. Funny ( I'm sure other species out there that look at us and wonder. We are in many ways capable of creating such beauty in art, music, writing, dance, technology ect.. yet at the same time capable of such horror, haltered, violence's ect... to each other and the planet itself. We are a conundrum of sorts.

    Hope things go for the better for all of us. Because our density if man finally grows up as a species is to finally travel and be among the stars once we grow out of our Adolescence.

    Peace and love P.

    Sorry but as much as I would like it to happen I don't see humanity changing for the better. I hoped that in 2012 there would be big change and things would change for the better but nothing happened.

    Galaxydreamer, don't give up just yet. It takes time for change. Especially on a global level. There have been some small changes taking place now towards something more positive. Part of this is coming from the younger generation seeing things from a different perspective. This shifting in consciousness takes time. As the old states of consciousness falls away to make room for the new to take hold. In between all of this is a battle of sorts . We may not see the full effects of this until our next lifetime if we so choose to come back to planet earth again. So like your profile, Keep on dreaming. As dreaming and imagination is how man creates his or her reality both here and on the higher dimensions. So reach for the stars.... But what ever you do... Do it with love in your heart always!

    Peace and love P.

    One of the first times I realized just how much of a double-edged sword technology is was when phone cameras started proliferating. Between that and public cameras cropping up everywhere after 9/11 (for our safety, of course), that really got me nervous. Not because I'm constantly performing impolite actions both at home and on the streets, but because accompanying all those cameras was a creeping subtext of "now you, yes YOU, can film or watch anybody anytime." I don't like the idea to this day because I'm an introvert. (DH and I realized we were being filmed by a drone while on a beach in Oregon recently. If you want to put me in a fighting mood very quickly, aim a drone camera at me!) However, this world belongs to the extroverts... so constant selfies, next-level oversharing, and taking video of random people on the DL are considered the norm nowadays.

    While I empathize with the idea of there being censorship, I'm a little on the fence about it in that form. Yes, there is free-floating TMI everywhere you look, and somehow a concept as vapid as "attention economy" has become an actual thing. With that being said, it's already far too easy to censor or shut out people who merely express opinions others don't like or disagree with; pushing that further would fly in the face of what the Internet was meant to be used for-- the free exchange of ideas.

    The simple fact is that people need to learn how to censor, or at least regulate, themselves. That is unfortunately not going to happen, certainly not as long as "influencers" continue to get tons of attention and money for filming themselves unboxing their shopping swag! Making narcissism a bad thing again, rather than censorship, might be a better (if more difficult) way to go.

    Over the years there have been various supposedly significant dates or periods where there was talk of this or that shift in the state of humanity. Nowadays I don't pay heed to any of that - which is not to say I support or oppose such things. But in practical terms, all I can change is myself. I don't always do a good job of it, but this is where any such shift must happen, each person changing themselves.

    You're right and things do take time to change. But still I'm not sure things are changing for the better. It seems more like things are changing for the worse then the better. Hopefully you're right and this younger generation will help change the world, but at the moment they are too young to tell if they will change things for the better or worse. I guess the best my generation can do is bring up the next generation to help change the world for the better.

    Yeah, I'm scared. I've always been scared when it's a new year. Sometimes people tell me that I look like a fifty year old person instead of a twenty year old person. I should be offended or upset, but it's the truth. Well, if I hadn't died so young in my past life, I'd be fifty now, so... I guess I can't feel comfortable at this time. Very advanced computers, smart phones, social networks. I use all this, but because I'm supposed to, not because I really like taking pictures and exposing my private life. All my friends are between sixteen and twenty years old and they always say to me "you should use instagram" and I say "yes, I will... instagram is so great" haha. I think my fear and concern is not about politics or natural disasters. I think my fear is about nostalgia and need for the past. I miss a lot of things from the past, and as the world and technology advances, I still think I will never feel comfortable with all of this. I would like to go back to the 80s or 90s, because even though it wasn't such a good time, I felt safe there. You know, it's just the feeling of security because you feel better without social networks. Personally I don't think any time is the best, but I can always feel comfortable remembering that technology didn't intimidate me before. Before, I didn't feel obliged to have instagram, fb, or other social networks. I didn't feel compelled to make excuses (You know, at wsp people can see if you've seen their messages).

    I hope that the 2020s will be a pleasant decade and that new technologies will be used for good things. Perhaps my optimism is blind.:confused:

    The 80s and 90s was a pretty good time. In the 60s we'd all been worried about the imminent threat of nuclear war between the two superpowers. By the 80s that concern had diminished, the 'iron curtain' came down and there was in interlude in the early 90s when it looked like there would be cooperation rather than mistrust, a promising optimistic time.

    But I always felt that the biggest problem in those times was electricity. There was amplified music played everywhere, people glued to tv sets. Actually talking to one another or making our own entertainment, that was difficult. Myself and friends used to seek out places where we could hear our own voices, and play our musical instruments and sing. It always seemed to me that the times before electricity would have more opportunities and we wouldn't be thought of as strange. Though I don't think there ever was a golden era for street-musicians, they may have been seen as vagrants and beggars and chased away.

    Still, I've come to think that time and place is irrelevant. Wherever and whenever we go, we take ourselves with us. For better or for worse. It is what is inside of us that determines our perceptions. In my life I've lived both wealthy and poverty-stricken lifestyles, both are the same. We can't walk away from ourselves.

    I don't like social media as well. The only social media I have these days is facebook and i rarely post on there or check the status of my friends. It's sad that these days all people seem to care about is what you post on social media.

    I can totally identify with what was written. I wish I could just stop the time now. With every year passing, I move away more and more far from "home" - the 30's - 40's of the 20th century. Not only it scares me, it makes me very very sad. I try to make it easier by watching and espacially ww2 photos, footages, radio broadcasts, and it sometimes make things easier. Sometimes it makes longing much worse.

    That's exactly how I would describe it.The years passing by just make me feel like I'm slowly being pulled away from my "home"more and more.Watching footage or listening to recordings and broadcasts sometimes works,but most of the time it gives me even more homesickness.It just feels as if there is a sort of invisible wall inbetween this century and the previous ones.

    I wish I couldn't relate to this so much but you're dead on, friend.

    I'm very much here, I'm very much here; I have a pretty good life and a small circle of friends I wouldn't trade for anything, but I still miss home. I miss my brothers. Sometimes it's almost embarrassing, how jarring things Now are, when I remember what they Were.
