"What do I do now...how to continue my path? I want to learn all I can. How can I help others see what life is about? That they are in the dark.....etc..."Want to wake people up"
I think one of the hardest things about any realisation is seeing other people unaware of what you have realised. And yes, there is a real temptation to "show them what they are missing," and help them reach the understanding that you have. BUT and its a big but - have you got the right to do that? Your path may be absolutely right for you and give you complete fulfilment but that does not mean that it would work for everyone. It is sometimes a little too tempting to write off other people as being spiritually devoid or living in the dark. But if those people have meaning and value in their own lives, it is perhaps not up to us to suggest they should be doing something different.
There are also many people who quite simply are just incapable of looking beyond the self. They will always think more about the gas bill than the meaning of life. You can't change them, they don't want to change. It takes a great deal of courage to look beyond the confines of your own life and see it as a tiny dot in the whole perspective of the universe. Some people will never manage it.
I also personally believe in reincarnation and it is important to understand that people are at different stages of their overall journey toward actualisation of the self. If a person in this life is more interested in watching the X Factor than communing with nature, perhaps that is a lesson they will learn in another life sometime in their future. This doesn't make them less worthy than you or me, they are just in a different place in time.
So what can you do? Well as a Pagan, I don't believe in converting other people, I believe everybody has their own right to live life in their own truth. But what you can do is show the fulfilment you have reached following the path you have chosen. Those who watch you finding happiness and contentment may well be inspired to seek their own path, one that will in turn bring them happiness. Its live and let live I'm afraid, one of the hardest things we ever do is stand by and watch people make the mistakes we have managed to avoid in our own lives.
