They are trying to suck me back in;
As I drive these endless miles across this great big country I can’t help but let my mind wonder. What in store for the future. I suppose it is not a smart thing, when I am flying down the highway weighing 87,000 lbs., to let my wander but I can’t help my self. I find my self passing the time by listening to pod casts of some of my most inspiring mentors are Glen Beck, Mark Levine and Dave Ramsey. All of these people are free thinkers and believe in living free now, so you can live free for the future. Ok I just confessed. I am a libertarian. Now the purpose of this post is not to get political. This is not the place for it. In fact after my 49 years on this planet I am finally sick and tired of politics. Those who know me personally would be shocked to hear that but it is true. I have finally figured it out. It is not about the left or the right. It is not about Bush, Obama, Clinton or Harper. They are all in it for money, power and control. They re not there to help the poor or make our lives better. Sure they may say that but in reality it is not true. Ask your self this . If they were in it for the “little people” then after 150 years why are there still “little people”?
The bottom line is, is that if you listen to these political parties, of all stripes, they will slowly suck you back into the system with out you realizing it.
When I sent upon this journey of minimalism and freedom I shed my life of all items keeping me down and stuck to the system. I threw out most of my connections to the system. First went the bills and debt. That in it self keeps you a slave to the system. Then went most of my material items. Bed, sofa, dishes, knickknacks all gone in the trash heap or to charity. Some I sold to get me out of debt. I got rid of my apartment and countless boxes of useless things I had been hoarding around for years. Then finally my connection to land, my apartment. All of this cleansing was so freeing that I struggle with the words to describe how freeing it truly was. It has gotten to the point that I am still trying to down size. Do I really need 5 pairs of jeans or 4 sweaters. Perhaps 2 of each will do? Do I really need a vehicle? That will be a tough one.
There was one thing that I never did purge. It was my connection to the political system thru different forms of media. It has gotten to the point where the bastards are starting to suck me back into the system. The negativity and constant fighting has really taken a toll on my connection to what matters. The simple things. I made a pledge to my self the other day as I went barreling down that highway. No more!! No more negatively and following of politics!! It is like a cancer on the mind and my inner being. Sure I will keep informed and tune into the news every day just to make sure the planet is still spinning but no endless negativity of those wired in to the system. Try it your self and se what effects it has on you inner being.
