I have been going to raves for about eight months. In this time I have learned many things about the music, the scene, and other stuff, but what I realized last night went beyond that. I felt it. Call it PLUR or whatever, but what I felt was the spirit of rave. Unbridaled and in on fell swoop. The southern province buddists call it sudden enlightenment. I looked around and noticed that the people left at that point were the ones who also felt "it". All the others had gone home or whatever, but we were there, and I felt a renewed sense of purpose. I am rambling, but you get the gist of what I'm trying to say. I can now fully appreciate the efforts of all involed in the community, the people with a true passion for rave.

p.s. Sorry for the incoherancy, I'm writing this at nine in the morning, and just "had to tell the world" before I went to sleep.

i had this breakthrough about 2 months ago. its when you stop going to raves, and become a raver. the sense of community and love that comes from a rave is one of the best feelings in the world. when you finally understand the real point of a rave, the spirit of rave, its the most incredible thing. and it gets better and better with each rave.

to hear this from other ravers is wonderful. one moment u feel like the scene is having problems and things are wrong here and things are wrong there etc...etc... To hear others still feeling that almighty buzz that only raves can give , either with or without drugs ( each to their own ) is as uplifting as the buzz itself. For me its my life, I only now work as a means to raving and getting that buzz. If some of the substances taken at raves be drugs , then authorities i say "fear the drug of raving" for it is the hardest drug of all, it is also the most peaceful and wonderful of drugs, for one only feels 'GOOD', you do not feel malice for anyone or anything, and if consideration ever comes into your mind at that moment of enlightenment, its for everyone in the world to feel the way you are feeling. What a wonderful place the world could be.... In the meantime , keep raving, 'our' world cannot get any better ( but it does !! :) )
