Just some thought:
We used to have to run 5 miles in full military attire.. The first mile was a pain because you did not really want to do it. By the third mile you
were thinking of # this it hurts to much... Once this wall is hit is where you learn to isolate the problems.
Well my side hurts just a little, My right knee has a slight pain, my mouth is dry... By isolating all the things that are hurting you one finds that
none are keeping you from finishing the run. Without the isolation of each problem your mind just thinks you are about to die due to all the pains...
I would hazard a guess that most of the guys who have trained in really hard physical situations have learned this trick..
What does that have to do with the rabbit holes being discussed ? Those who look for themselves and do not buy into every propaganda outlet finally
come to a point where (like has already been stated) you find it hard to believe or trust in many many things.. You could call it another wall...
Isolate what has shattered your world view or maybe clarified it for you..
There may be several things, taxes, corruption, police state, politicians, wars either past or present, whatever ?
Each one of your hot button issues has a yes or no answer to the problem.. Can you change what is going on ?... If the answer is yes and it is worth
it go for it.. If there is no way for you to change what is going on, or protesting your taxes every year is getting old quit the system..like in sell
the house rent or live in a R.V., Boat, or in my case I just moved out of country.. Lucky I was able to do so after working and saving all my life..
What I am trying to say, call it for peace of mind, there is something like, "give me strength to change what I can and knowledge to realize what I
I doubt you would want to go back and be an unthinking drone; even though many drones seem to not have a worry in this world..
Music to tame the savage beast has always worked for young musicians but it seems as they get older, the women take over that duty.. No ?
You can create your own little world where you are except for the occasional leeches who will try and suck you earnings away from you.. This whole ACA
thing is going to get to be a bigger problem than it already is IMO in the next few years with the deductibles and fines.. I missed that crap because
I am VA and old... again lucky me !
So in closing after my great ramble; if I had to guess there are going to be a few things that will come up over the next few years that you might
feel your participation might actually make a difference. In your own mind/heart you will know... That is one of the things so great about the
diversity of the country.. Somewhere someplace something will happen that will overcome the 'divide and conquer' mentality and for one brief moment
almost all will speak with one voice... hahahah well we can hope, no? If not then just be prepared for more of the same old B.S. but at least you know
what it truly is.
