I read IMAGINE a couple years ago, and it changed a lot of my outlook on life. I've currently been studying Aldous Huxley, and am reading/re-reading his acclaimed novel "ISLAND" for the past few weeks, and it seems I am at a loss for meaning and motivation in my life. I've always been a Philosophy Addict, and am totally engulfed with so many great minds, I'm finding it hard to live around a lot of so called "Americans" SLowly sluffing off the chains of my upbringing, Ego, and just becoming very self aware, how do I implement some of these conceptual Ideas of how things can be in a world dominated by Individuality over community. I'm a right brained, visual, now crazy;) alturist with no one to talk too? Is there a place/cause I can devote my life to, so I can have some companionship/understanding for my future 'NOWS" of existence, based on Mind-body connections, and being one with source? I want Worth.Value.Growth.Community.Teaching.Humility. An understanding of that "emptiness" I've felt so connected to my whole life, that others seem to chastize me for. Got any tools or resources?
