What I find funny/ironic is that I have had family members tell me that they just want me to be happy when I have never said I wasn't! I live very
simply and I live within my means. I am not tied to a mortgage on an upside down house. I can move anywhere at any time. I can provide my own food.
Food, water, shelter. Those are the basics. Being tied to a job, or a certain area or house, I think takes away your freedom. You receive
"stability..." or at least that's what people think it is. I don't, I think it's just more enslavement.
My family thinks there are certain things or situations that make you happy, but the world is an illusion in my mind and the real happiness comes from
within. You have to learn to find happiness within because everything you have now will eventually be gone, friends, jobs, even your life. How will
you cope if you never have learned to mediate, go within, find your own strength?
I'm currently rehabbing an airstream trailer which will be off the grid so that I can basically go anywhere and have the necessities of life. No
mortgage. No rent, unless I chose to park it somewhere "civilized." I can make it on my own. I have found that the system...really only works to
perpetuate itself and to make people think they need it. It makes people dependent patsies. People don't know how to take care of themselves anymore,
and always think the cops or "someone else" will step up and take care of them. I'm not a doomsday person, but I see much artificiality in this
current world, and I want nothing to do with it.
