I will keep this short and simple. We can most definitely agree on one thing, society is in turmoil. Things are falling apart left and right and
we're all left to contemplate and discuss while we seek a suitable solution to this generalized mess.
Being a member of society has its perks but has a lot of inconveniences as well. We are offered luxuries which in turn have to be balanced with a lot
of personal sacrifices. Why does it have to be that way?
I'm not into the whole 2012 thing nor am I interested in predictions but I do think that a path is laid out right in front of us all. I remember
watching a documentary on the History channel about 2012 (can't remember the name though) in which they showed carvings in stone from Sumerian times
where you had people presented with two separate paths. One was up and 'looked' better, the other one was on ground floor and looked more simple.
This, supposedly, is somehow related to 2012.
Now, I do think that we will be presented with a path of similar fashion. Either we bow to the New World Order (level up but really not that much
improvement), or we simply extract ourselves from society, go back to our roots and become self-sufficient (ground level). At first glance, it looks
like an unimaginable task to extract from society but I beg to differ.
What do we need to live a good, healthy and happy life? Well, first… family and friends. Without social support, most of us would already pass away.
You also need shelter, food and water, medical care, clothing, education and perhaps some hobbies. What you don't really need are money, a cellphone,
a computer, a car, a gps, a tv, a job and much more. Many of you will wonder how you can survive on no money and no job? Pretty easy if you think
about self-sufficiency. If you have shelter outside any controlled society, can grow your own food, have access to clean water supply, know your way
around most common aches and health problems, can knit your own clothes, have access to books and are able and willing to educate yourself or others
'old style', which means without the use of the internet or the computer… you should be able to function without needing any money, any
government, any job or a cellphone or computer or any of those luxuries.
Isn't this a step back? Well, think about it. What good does money bring? You can buy stuff that you most often don't need and can go places you
otherwise wouldn't be able to visit. What bad does money bring? Dependency, greed, lust. How about cellphones? You can call, text, e-mail anyone at
any time. But what about the brain tumor you'll be left with in 40 years from using that device? Don't forget that for every positive thing a new
gadget offers, one if not two inconveniences outweigh it.
All this to say that we've become so stuck in our ways that the best possibility to really get out of this mess is to unplug and become smarter about
how we live. Think about the pro's and con's of things we say we need and things we really need. The best way to go about this change? Spend a
weekend or two in the woods, make sure you know the ins and outs of the area( in case of emergency) and try a survival weekend. Maybe it will help you
realize what you can get rid off in your everyday life, prepare for a real survival experience if and when the time comes and really understand what
fundamental change is all about.
Think about it, extraction could become the new inception…
