Striving to live a spiritual/kind life in a (mostly) unspiritual/unkind world

I can relate to so much of your post. It appears that this life transition does take up a lot of time....I find myself just sitting and doing a lot of reading, self reflecting and getting to know the essence of my true self. Not that it is a bad thing (I have learned so much about myself, life,and the current dysfunctional state of the world). But...it does keep me from getting the necessary stuff done that has to be done in life (cleaning, cooking, work,etc...). However, I feel that what I am doing is very important so everything else gets pushed aside. I do manage to get the stuff done, but not in a timely manner as I used to
As far as connections with people, I have never really had too many connections with people. I have always been a loner and outcast so I really don't care to conform to society. To me, connection with animals filled that void for me.
Not sure what you are meaning about society pressuring you to join them? Could you explain. And "Becoming like them"....do you really want to go back to the unconscience state of mind that the entire world seems to be in? I think that in itself is what is making you feel so different, because of the changes occurring within us. It would be nice to share the good news of the great things to come, but then again, most people would look at you like you are crazy....so best left unsaid....unfortunately.
I would be fine with living in a tent and out of my car
I just have financial obligations from my past life as a human in the normal world to deal with, and supplements to assist with my healing. Otherwise, I live very simply. My only "splurging" is done on healthy, organic food and natural skincare products I am trying to live very frugally but it doesn't seem to be enough. It's a humbling experience though, to see how little I really need, and how more rewarding walking in nature, meditating, and other free things are more fulfilling than those that cost money
We'll make it
As far as connecting with others, I've noticed when I'm in the background and "people watch," I see awakening symptoms in others, and music is really speaking to me too. It gives me hope and I feel less alone in this
Regardless, I will stand my ground, stand by my beliefs and truths and who I am. That is what is most important. I'm not afraid of anything anymore....except losing my spirituality and my confidence in my true self.
