Yes, there was that feeling shortly after I came out. I felt like Clark Kent in the movie "Superman" who had disappeared into his Fortress of Solitude in the 50's and came back out 30 years later into a more modern world. Not only do you feel like a total alien on this planet, but out of step with the world.
But the feeling does pass with time, especially as you get established in the regular world. The "spiritual antennae" on the top of your head retract after a while and you don't feel so alien anymore. Your every move is not bathed in some weird prayer, your earth brain begins to kick in and you don't rely only on listening to the "whisperings" inside your brain to tell you whether to buy one or two cartons of milk.
Welcome to earth, fellow alien. These systemite earthlings are not the inferior race that our great leaders from the "whole new world" taught us they were.
