Jumping In and Out of Hell
#2
Sacracor, I feel you completely on this.

I think because people today are so acclimated the way the world is  they don't full appreciate just how anxiety inducing everything about the modern experience all can be.

Anxiety , depression and fear kill the spiritual life.  I know because I experience it myself.  

The Ancient world, heck even the world before the mid 20th century was positively serene compared to our time now.  It was harder at times, sure, and there were many uncertainties, but, but communities, culture, families, identity, marriages were largely in tact.  Dating was not the huge source of stress it is today. There is a huge amount of peace just coming from this feeling of belonging and stability alone.  

The world was comparatively slow moving, our senses were not constantly being bombarded.  We did not have to fly around in fast traveling steel death mobiles all day every day just to make it to work.  

Working on a farm all day is tiring, yes, but one ends the day with a good conscience and a healthy fatigue.  Slaving away in the corporate office doing meaningless "make-work", not knowing if one is contributing to some corporate evil , or if one's financial investments are supporting the cause of institutionalized evil and the culture of death is a constant, dark annoyance.

Sin was a lot harder to fall into.  Whole communities supported one another both in our natural life and oftentimes supernatural life.  

Architecture and our surroundings were more connected to the natural and sublime.  Even when poor, there was more peace among people.  

I do not have an answer for you other than the usual suggestions, but I just wanted to know I commiserate with you and share your concerns.  You are not alone.
