are you programmed?

We live life the way someone projected it...for example most of use microsoft on our computers it is a programme that you can up to a certain level change to your liking but at the end of the day its a conformity that everyone uses. The same thing seems to have happened with our lives. Once upon a time some one or people decided on a code of ethics for our lives. How we should conduct ourselves, what's acceptable, what right and so on. So in a way we are all clones to this code of ethics and at some point in our lives we will feel unfullfilled, something missing, not right, bored, sad, angry maybe. Most of us don't really know why we feel this way- a passing phase-but in reality it is always there under the surface. In trying not to conform nowadays, people expect a lot for nothing or do things, like take drugs, get drunk, do daring things and more....just for the sake of feeling fullfilled; different but still the same.
I used to try to be the same as the rest to feel I belong and fit in with the rest of the world but I never managed. Nowadays, I hardly try. Sometimes, I can't help but try to fit in but most of the time, I don't care. I am me! I love being in the country for walks, to relax. I love travelling to places where I can see the wildlife. I am not interested in buying clothes or using make up or buying shoes. I never enjoyed partying in bars and clubs. I never tried to hide all this really and so I never had a lot of friends (to be more accurate close friends). I love the environment and try to be eco friendly - people laugh at me. I enjoy yoga and I find it helpful to deal with my life, it also has helped me understand more my religion believe it or not and discover my deepest thoughts and dreams- people think me crazy coz that is all bullshit they say! I don't know what to tell them, beacuse they are not interested in my life and I falter trying to be interested in theirs. I am determined to be fullfilled with my life and not conform to strict rules passed by god knows who. I love life and it has so much to offer but a lot see only the material things. You don't need a lot to start getting there. Listen to what others are saying but really listen and listen to the silence around you. See what others are seeing without judging and see the beauty in everything and everyone. Respect not just other human beings but the earth you walk on, the trees you sit under, the rocks you kick, the birds you watch flying, the soil that gives you veggies... and love! Love because without love nothing works. love the person you don't like, love every day you live, love whatever comes your way because that came for a reason.
I am trying to live by those rules :) I hope to find more of myself in this extraordinary journey I decided to take and I hope more people will be closer to me and believe in me. What about you? what do you think/believe?

I agree with you completely...too many people concern themselves with the materialistic things in life and are so concerned about fitting in and what others think. You are one of those people who don't care about what others think and care about living your life the way you want it too....and that is one of the things i love about you! You only have one life to live so you might as well live it the way you choose!
