Alternate Lifestyles: Living our Ideals
It goes without saying that there is something “different” about us. Nearly every article on this site refers to us as people ” wanting more”, be it happiness, experiences, you name it. It also goes without saying that not all of us or identical in our goals…
Regardless. There is “something” there that set us apart. Be it our path of self-development, our ideologies, our tendencies, our way of thinking, or just what we happen to spend our time on. We spend a lot an awful lot poking holes into the society’s and cultures around us, the lives that “normal” people tend to live.
My question to you is, How do we survive in a world that is arguably against the majority of our ideals. We can scoff at the student who graduates from a college with severe debt, who swiftly enters into cubicle work to pay off said debt ( his career I assume), but what can we do to avoid this fate?
What sort of lives can we live so that we can ACTUALLY live?
We can’t all fit into the aesthetic life style.

Yet have you not seen that we are generally addressed as such by the major blog posts on this site?
Even the message on the banner reads
“HighExistence is a community of conscious INDIVIDUALS centered around pondering, exploring & expanding this wondrous experience called life.”
Do you think that self-development, lucid dreaming, psychedelic use for consciousness expansion, and ten-day Vipassana courses are things that society in general are interested in?
I honestly think it was more presumptuous of me to lump everyone who reads this site as being similar.
