This is the "NORMAL" first stage of enlightenment. You've heard that ignorance is bliss right? Now you know why!
If you don't ignore the facts of what is happening around you, then it is easy to see how your fear is not irrational. Just give it time. Your fear
will eventually give way to action, that is, if you want to survive. Its not a theory anymore...things are getting worse everyday. I mean, in a way
its refreshing to see that there is actually going to be a price paid for all the delusion that surrounds us, and the way we live.
I started feeling better as soon as I started to DO something. I went to a local warehouse super market, and it started with buying a 50lb bag of
pinto beans, and a 50lb bag of rice. It was like $35. I've added to that since then, but I'm NOT going to stockpile YEARS worth of food. I'm NOT
planning anything either. I just got enough food to buy me and my girlfriend (who, by the way, doesn't believe anything will happen and thinks I'm a
NUT!) a little time to choose a path out of the mess if worse comes to worser.... We could probably survive for two or three months on what I have. I
got 100 gallons of water delivered to me for $100, 20 5 gallon containers. I bought several books on edible wild plants, a survival knife, seeds, I
have a "BUG OUT" backpack which has all the basics for us in case of a sudden upheaval. I've been reading a bit here and there on survival sites.
The fear is gone. I agree that inwardly what we really fear is DEATH, which is silly, we are all going there. Let go of your fear of that, and you
have conquered almost ALL fear in life. I have also come to terms with the limited amount of control I really have...I'm not RAMBO...and I don't
care. I will fight to the end even if I end up defeated.
I'm hoping we'll squeak through this MESS without ever having to break open the beans & rice, but it's there if we need it.
See what happens if you STOP reading all the doom & gloom...Your attitude would probably change. Me, I just keep coming back for more bad news, but
I'm not bothered anymore. I have accepted that the current trend may end up much, much worse than what blind optimism would have us believe. I
welcome the change. Things can not go on forever the way they are...it HAS to change. It may get worse before it gets better...it may not even get
better. But I'm with the person I love most in life, and whatever happens, we will walk through that together...
