that's the problem though, in western culture, you essencially can't have much of a life unless you're rich. It's so stupid. If you're not rich then
you're oppressed in so many ways it's not even funny. To the point where life isn't even a life. You're just a slave. A stupid rat stuck in a maze.
Like who wants to live under that kind of tyranny. That's why half the time I just think maybe I'll go live out in the wild and hope for the best.
Because to live on grid and in the system with no money is so pointless and hopeless. It's so worthless.
It is worthless in your eyes because, whether you are aware of it or not, within you there is something that is of far greater value, something
priceless; your conscience, your spirit. This world is a dark mirror that reflects upon us the evils within our own hearts, some of us carrying a
greater burden than others and mistakingly placing our worth into impermanent phenomena outside of our own control. Not a single man can change a hair
on his body by his own will, how much more so can't a man change his circumstances.
But there is something, yeah only one thing that we truly can change, and that is our thoughts about the world and our understanding of ourselves. Yet
we continue to deny our selves by placing our values into the hands of the perishable materials of the world, yeah even the body. No matter where we
find ourselves, whether in society or in the wilderness, we will not escape the depravity within our own souls. So what is a man to do?
Deny the evil thoughts existence within your spirit; your mind and intellect. Deny the existence of any thought that harms your spirits, deny the
darkness permission to exist in you. Only give permission to good thoughts, logical thoughts, reasonable and loving thoughts and cling to them as if
your very life depends on them, because truly it does and you have not come to know it yet. But foremostly seek peace within your heart and leave the
world to its own course.
That is your true path to wisdom. That is your true path to understanding the meaning of it all.
