A recent article claimed that “Millennials” are more interested in someone’s astrological sign than they are what they do for a living. In fact, more and more millennials are turning to spiritualism—although not organized religion—which creates an interesting phenomenon of people living at the height of technological advancement while being drawn to ancient esoteric practices.

Why are millennials focused on spiritualism? Is there something missing in their lives they want to fulfill? And what does this say about their parent’s generation—Generation X?

Also, is there a new Generation Gap? You might think so when you consider all the criticism being leveled at millennials by gen-xers and baby boomers. But are these criticisms justified?

That’s what I’m discussing with Joe and Christina in this episode. They are millennials, and I’m Generation X. This should be interesting! Listen in.

      some insight into the millenials gravitating toward spirituality…

      half of this generation is hooked on heroin… half of us were once addicts and have kicked… some were lucky to have never gotten on drugs… MANY of us grew up in fucked up families and during an era where mental health issues were through the roof and TONS of drugs being handed out to young kids that weren’t even full grown adults.

      so… many of us really got derailed fresh out of high school… those of us who are more put together now… are still watching alot of our closest friends dying, or still trying to kick drugs.. Alot of us had very ambitious goals but little to no guidance. The internet raised half of the older millenials cuz there was nobody else to do it… some of us had to raise our own selves and are now 30ish and STILL trying to raise ourselves. Now… i’m not a liberal… I was raised with a preacher for a grandfather… i think i was one of the lucky ones… I’ve been back to church some… i’m not exactly living the christian life… but i respect it quite a lot and find it interesting.

      i actually think alot of the older millenials are going to end up being late bloomers. the younger millenials are to some degree miles apart from the older of us… they grew up with alot of this stuff in full swing… while we were the ones it got unloaded on… alot of trial and error… alot of bitterness with alot of us… divorce culture followed by drugs and hookup culture and now into the age of nobody can put down their god damn phone, and it seems there’s no respect left in society… and some of us are looking around at the world we’re in, in complete disgust.

      so for some of us we could give a fuck about money… cuz the question is how do people who claim to love each other treat other like such fucking shit? I might not be a big rich business dude or whatever… but at least i have some type of morals/ethics/ idea of right and wrong.. but looking at alot of the women in our generation… it seems they swallowed the feminist kool aid and don’t give a fuck about anything but themselves. so alot of us older millenials are going MGTOW or at least putting off the typical milestones of adulthood… cuz for alot of us… our twenties were practically a waste… the lucky ones managed to at least get ourselves turned around before hitting thirty… and i think alot of us are now trying to offer a hand up to some of our close friends because if we don’t… who the hell is going to

      anyway just some thoughts on all that

      Ditching or shifting beliefs, opening up to whatever creed appeals to people, is a personalisation, a self expression.
      I think despite an apparent rejection of a spoon fed perception of life and what lies beyond, at the very SEAT of ones morals, there remains the fundamentals of what is absorbed as good/bad, right/wrong which is learned from an early age from our parents or earliest remembered life experience.
