I just received an article from Owen Waters in my mailbox and it says that spiritually aware people might feel alone in the crowd in this festive season. I have copied and pasted the entire article below:
I would like to know how does the IQ community feel about this. I would love to hear the experiences here.
Thanks and Lots of Love to All...

I can relate to this completely!!!
I feel this way whenever I am in a group of people, and it was really great to know where that "alone" feeling comes from.

Hey thanks for sharing. I have a personal story about this- I stopped celebrating Birthdays/thanksgiving and Christmas about 8 years ago, and while it is tough its also a relief! Incredibly enough, my personal non-participation has actually spawned a chain of events in my family in which no one is worried anymore about buying gifts or traveling to far relatives- its like seeing me back out has made them less stressed about the whole ordeal- its become much more meaningful and minimal- really down to only sharing an afternoon with the geographically closest relatives, giving a few phone calls and maybe cooking a meal and thats it- for the whole year. Even though I live on the other side of the country from my family I have noticed these huge festivities with all the excess being pared down slowly since I stopped joining in (and my sisters, cousins, dad etc others have followed suit, so now "holidays" just mean whatever ends up working out for everyone on an individual scale- nothing is forced) While some people might think its a form of decay, I think it is more of a spiritual reevaluation as to what is best for all, and its been so much more positive. In fact I don't even notice holidays in general anymore- Ive forgotten them almost- they seem like just another day, and it doesn't bother me at all! Anywho that's just a personal story from my end...
