Meeting the right people takes time.

Meeting the right people takes time, particularly if you are not a hopeless follower of trends and media influence as to what to do, where to go etc.
As we move towards the truth of how life and mind works, you will lose more people than gains, but you should not care, as quality is far greater than quantity.
One day the balance will change, but not in my lifetime. The world is still largely narrow minded, thanks to the media, but better Mind education will change all that.
With curiosity and the open mind, that you where born with, but lost by most, comes more freedom and understand of the real truth, void from the damaging influences of others.
