Lonliness vs. solitude

The problem with loneliness is the lack of human companionship, sympathy, love and touch. The internet though allows us to communicate in various ways is actually making us more lonely due to the fact that it's making us less sociable. I would much rather go out and socialize with real people than being here in a whole other country writing in a forum.

I had solitude in Cottonwood last year. Boy was that heaven. When I felt the need for contact I drove around to meet people or went into town. You might say selective exposure.

No doubt about that....also, it was in my solitude and loneliness that I shed a ton of emotional baggage that wasn't mine, that my emotions were being exaggerated.  It wasn't until I faced those emotions that I realized that underneath them, I was calm and clear.

You sound like an INFJ. A rare personality that is introverted and re-energizes in seclusion, but then need to expend that energy with others, idealistically in deep and/or meaningful ways.

I haven't taken that survey (too mental for me) but I've watched videos describing INFJ's and that's very descriptive of me.  Over the last several years, I've been unplugging from the matrix, so to speak, and just when I think I've recaptured most of my freedom, I realize that yet another layer of enslavement in my psyche and/or lifestyle still remains.   

For example, I sincerely hate how complex the financial systems are, and not only that, but the games played with these systems like rewards programs.  Layer upon layer upon layer of complexity which in the end is there to trap a person into a particular system that seeks to feed off that person's labor.

IMO, the truly wholistic (vs. holistic) life is centered on making a living from sharing a product and/or service that is based upon a true need of humanity.  That's what I do with my products at http://www.CSHstore.com.  That's my expression from my talents based upon what I found helped me and then I found a way to offer it to others.   It's the "work" I will take on the road with me when I'm able to be fulltime.  

That's what I love about people like Bob Wells, that they found a living serving the needs of others and what we all need are pathways to a healthier and easier life.   Easy means that there then is time to be creative (aka, play) which then leads to yet another unique expression to share with humanity, hopefully in a way that can be a source of thriving, entrepreneurship.   

I sincerely think humanity best exists as a synergistic tribe.  For example, it makes no sense that each of us cooks our own meals when among us are people who's art is to cook, their expression is in cooking, so to be able to pay them to do what they love to do would be wonderful.  I hate cooking.  In a tribe, people would gravitate towards what they love to do for the benefit of others....what they love to do.  A win-win all the way around.   

You might enjoy this.   It's my first attempt to make a Youtube video about a year ago.  :-)
