An Unusual Perspective

Some may call it a self imposed exile, but several years ago we separated ourselves from so-called “society”. It’s a 90 minute ride to even get to a town from here, mostly across dirt ranch road, some of it “primitive” (white knuckles). About a year ago, our Ford Bronco died, and we got swindled out of $3000 for a replacement truck that…well, long story, but suffice it to say we haven’t had a vehicle since then. We haven’t left the ranch in about a year. The handful of times we had visitors since then, they have been so kind as to bring us up some small amount of groceries for a “treat” or two, but we gained something very special in that time – perspective.

It’s not like we’ve always lived so remotely and we don’t know what the other side of the world is like. Many of the past 25 years we lived in suburbia, raising our kids and working our successful business. We traversed the country more times than I can count as we drove to the seminars we taught, kids in tow, giving them a better education than they could have gotten in a classroom. We stayed in major cities when we, too, were involved in the never-ending rat race. We went to restaurants too crowded to enjoy a meal, we took the kids to the requisite amusement parks, we stayed in hotels that didn’t realize their business was hospitality. But our vision was always to walk away from that life, towards one more connected to the nature part of human nature. To live a more natural life, abiding by natural law – which is the only absolute law under which humanity lives, anyway, whether we know it or not. As our culture fights natural law, believing that it can overcome the natural consequences of our actions, we simply screw things up for ourselves.

In fulfilling our vision, in breaking away from riding that wave all the way to the shore, we halted those pieces of personality from their natural path within the human psyche – their final destination to dehumanize those caught within it.

What we see from our vantage point is too many people living around millions of other people and having no connection to them whatsoever. Thirty years or so ago, and for a couple of years, I commuted from New Jersey to my job in Manhattan by train, walking through Penn Station at the rush hours to get to and from my office. This was about the time that the Sony Walkman (a personal audio cassette player if you’re really that young!) was developed. Daily I saw hordes of people, walking around – no, shuffling around, it was too crowded to really walk – who believed that if they had their Walkman headphones on in that sea of bodies they would be carried away to a place that was not so frighteningly crowded. They actually felt like they had some kind of privacy while trying to catch the next train home. It was like thinking that if you close your eyes, the world no longer exists.

What we see from our vantage point is too many people trying so hard to keep their heads above water that they are sure to drown. It’s so hard these days to just make a mortgage or rent payment, hard – and soon to be much harder – to feed yourself and your family a satisfying meal (let alone what is available as food) that the population can do little else but think of themselves. By financial and other manipulations by TPTB, we have been taken from a prosperous culture with a bright and hopeful future to a slave society with no future other than to push papers around, serve a hamburger, or take a government job in which we can get to feel superior to the masses, so that we can pay for our own room and board while any spare change goes to the top echelons, leaving most people with no time to be kind and considerate to themselves nor to others. It’s an attempt to drain the life’s blood of your soul.

What we see from our vantage point is too many people who have no soul left, no more light of intelligence, common sense or even lust for life left in their eyes, following the daily routine they have been given to follow without question of its rationale. The masses wait placidly on line to be physically molested or irradiated for the privilege of boarding an airplane, watching silently as the 87 year old granny is strip searched for a fabled threat. Too many drivers go past and don’t really see the newly stacked jersey barriers on the highway that wait their turn to be used to choke off the traffic flow. Or they stop dutifully to offer proof of license and insurance for no reason other than the sheer control factor (can I make you stop along your journey?) to the goons who guard the “king’s roads”.

What we see from our vantage point is too many people who think that if something doesn’t affect them, it has no relevance in the world at all. So it’s alright to disrespect those who offer you kindness, to confuse that kindness as something to be tread upon because that disrespect somehow makes you a rung further up on the ladder of society. As long as they don’t have to give up their 62” plasma TV or their nightly rack of beer, all is well with the world.

Well, all is not right with the world. It’s been orchestrated by those who wish to make us forget that we are all one. They do so because that oneness is our power. Each of us is connected to the same universal energy. We are all made of the same electrons, protons and neutrons and so are the stars and planets that surround us. And there are energies all around us of which we do not even conceive at this juncture in history. So we all have something at stake. We are all one.

There is a Cardinal Rule for humanity, based on allowing higher energies to flow… Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. It’s not a matter of how big your house is. It’s not a matter of what church you attend. It’s not a matter of what you learned in school. It’s a matter of how much kindness and positive intentions we give to each other. And do this good for others not because they are the same religion as you, not because they are the same color as you, not because they are in the same financial stratus as you – do it because we are all brothers and sisters in humanity. What you do to the least of us is done to all of us, so choose what you do wisely.

TPTB are about separating us. They do this because separately we are easily dominated. What connects us is the humanity we show each other:

hu-man-i-ty n. pl. hu-man-i-ties

  1. Humans considered as a group; the human race.
  2. The condition or quality of being human.
  3. The quality of being humane; benevolence.
  4. A humane characteristic, attribute, or act.

Human benevolence (a positive act toward another human) is what we want to try to achieve. Without one bullet being fired, if we can learn this one thing – to consider another before ourselves and to accept the kindness of others – we could defeat TPTB in a single day. As in the final scene of the movie, “V for Vendetta”, when all the people come together, unarmed but for their understanding of righteousness no bullets, no cannons, no goon squads could defeat them.

The next time you have a chance, smile at someone you don’t know. The next time you have a chance, do a kindness for someone that in no way could ever benefit you, without them even asking. If we have love for others as well as for ourselves in our hearts and take action on that, we have higher consciousness. Without it we are stuck in lower consciousness. Don’t allow TPTB to take what is rightfully yours – the understanding that we are all one and that understanding is power. Show some humanity today and reap the rewards.

  1. Not so unusual at all.I have a piece of land that looks almost like the one in the pic and is as remote.It is so quiet you can hear your own heart beat ,a place where the deer and antilope wander free.A place that is far from the madness of the city and where in a short time i will be moving to for good.My favorite thing is to stand and close my eyes and listen to the sounds of nature and feel the peacefulness.Believe me untill you have done this you will not understand how wonderful this earth can be.It is in no. cal a place most people don’t believe could exsists but dose.Sheila i know what you mean and i hope others will be able to someday find this peace to.

    1. I know what you mean, REDHORSE. For me, it’s Heaven. Owning and living my life on a place like that was always my childhood dream. I’m afraid that unless I get a knock on the door from PCH, it will remain a dream. 🙁

  2. Angel-remember that land in the west can still be cheap.The farther off the main road the better and cheaper.Mine is 20 acers and was only five thousand.No power but there are other ways to get that.NM still has some for a good price just look where others don’t.

      1. Angel, living from paycheck to paycheck, I know what you mean. I don’t even have $5.00 to print a few pages at Kinkos. lol

        1. Guess what I’m watching from my window.
          I BIG White Blimp cruising up the Hudson. Got the binoculars and this one says US NAVY. Yesterday a KC-10 flew over. Between it and the F-15s it’s been a bit noisier than usual. At least the blimp is quiet.

          1. What? A blimp that says, US Navy? No way! The U.S. Navy would never have a blimp flying over its country. And what would the U.S. Navy even need a blimp for? You must be a conspiracy nut. (Sarcasm) Just preparing you with a sheeple perspective. lol

          2. Yes, I was a bit surprised to see NAVY on it.
            Speaking of conspiracy and propaganda for the sheeple…
            Check out the “U.S. army battling racism within it’s own ranks” post.

      2. I realy feel for ya Angel -NYC. Land is cheap. when I got my land I worked for a farmer for 6 months in the summer. What is expensive is lane transfer, surveyors costs, a private well, a septic system, a licenced driveway, ect. When I got my 5 acres in the country it was only worth $500.00 an acre., but to get everything to make it legal to live on it cost a extra $37,000.00, and that is what is so damned criminal about the whole thing because here in Wi. they- the authorities can take ya to court and fine you for DNR violations for not complying with their oridence regulations. Taxes are realy cheap if you can afford what it takes to get everthing that they expect. Land prices are going down here in Wi. but everything else is going up. I am one damn lucky guy to have what I got even though I live day to day for living expences I atleast have a place to call my own. It sure was hard though to start. My land is beautiful, but my living conditions suck. It stil is possible to work off land here and if you want I will keep my eyes and ears open for you all. It would be a pleasure to have ya`ll as neighbores if you guys are as ya`ll say that ya are. Like Henry was saying about living around like minded people with the same attitudes. I think it is the only way to go with that comment Henry made

        1. Thanks, Dan. Yup, it’s those ordinances, codes, fees, taxes that will hammer ya. I’ll let you know if we get in a position to consider it.

          1. I’m almost embarrassed to say Digger. How about Ryan’s hometown? And having worked much of my life in the heavy and highway construction trades I know his family’s company. Not a contractor I ever cared to work for.
            Eau Claire, huh? Real nice country up there! Though I have to say that I’m better aquainted with the Spooner, Trego, Hayward area.

          2. @ rumstruck at 9:43pm.; and what Ryan are you talking about?,and why do you sound like you know me, and what town does Ryan live in now and what is his wifes first name? P.S. Springbrook isn`t that far from spooner. Simple questions I asked you that if you and I know the same Ryan it should not be a prob to answere my questions.leave Ryans last name unmentioned. It would be cool if you could answer rhumstruck. If you know me then call me at my ph. #. That will not be hard for you to get if you know Ryan`s dad, if Ryans dad won`t give you my ph. # then have his dad call me and let me know, O.K. rumstruck1, NO GAMES , O.K. ?, and let me know you by your screen name, rhumstruck! give answere! let me know here on site so I know how to trust ya cause I don`t give out phone # or last names rhumstruck

          3. Try Ryan as a last name. Congressman, turned Vice-presidential candidate Paul Ryan! (worthless pr#@k that he is) I understand your paranoia about posting personal info, I feel the same way. In fact I was just wondering how this would play out without going public. I suppose the site admin could step in so we wouldn’t have to publicize our personal info to everyone. Don’t know.

          4. Maybe Henry could send me your e-mail address to me and I could get back to you that way. My e-mail has been acting up though,I can receive but I cannot seem to send e-mail. I was mostly thinking about looking for Angel, Clark K, #1, ect., ya know those guys. We got off the”An Unusual Perspective” here a bit I think rhumstruck. I will try to get back to ya though if you get Henry to send your e-mail add. to me though or better yet if you could tell me when your are in my area. we could hook up at a truck stop or something rhumstruck just to check out for you if you want.

    1. Look at the big picture. Look at all the foreign nationals in your country living your dream and think of the betrayal.

      1. yes Henry, I hope there is no betrayal amonst us guys here. Just trying to get Angel and perhaps some of the other true, derserving Patriots out of the big city b.s. ya know Henry. I`m just trying to do the right thing. I know that your judgement, honor, and morality has only the very highest of standards here with me Henry.

        1. You are right Diggerdan. We are straying. I emailed Henry and asked him to forward my email to you. I would like to discuss this more but not publicly as I value my privacy as much as you appear to value yours!

  3. Sorry i didn’t mean to seem insencitive.I’m the same today.When i got the place a long time ago i had two quarters to rub together in my pocket.Today all i get when i put my hand in my pocket is lent.

    1. That’s OK, REDHORSE. I appreciate the info. It’s good to know that you can still find decent property. Hopefully, we’ll be able to get some one day. I remain hopeful.

  4. In this country no one owns anything. We merely “rent” property from the government. The second you cannot pay the taxes, they seize your property and ravage any resources on that property.

    1. A old freind bought 80 acrcers a few yr.s ago for $200.00 a acre Up there in the spring brook area is mostly hunting land but some of the nicest to be found hunting and fishing! Around the Eau Claire, Durand, Menomonie area ya know here in Wi.there is always a good chance to do what I did and make a deal with a farmer to work off some land – I think that is the only way to do buisness. That was what I was thinking Angel and her husbend cmight think about to get out of that damned city. I always say this land ten miles out of eauclaire is like Ore. under a a telesope – Ore. is the same only Ore. is ten times bigger. I`m a Gold Beach, Ore. Native.I am Not to far from you Henry back in the day about 45 yr.s ago. lol ha ha ha Now I`m stuck here in Wi. I like Ore. better myself! Any way – check out a map on the internet. These are the places I am familure with and people are realy cool and the land is senic, nice and quiet for the most part and usualy good hunting!I`ll keep an eye out for you guys. O.K. get back here on the trenches – it is the only site I go on for the most part, hahaha really -you guys and others and like I said to Angel and others here I will keep a eye open.

  5. Thanks for sharing your wonderful perspective! First let me tell you, I was born in Iran and after Islamic revolution my family moved to France and a few years later to USA. After living in different parts of U.S for nearly thirty years, I finally had it with the rat race and plastic relationships so I moved to Thailand 4 years ago (well, the lies about the 9/11 not being an inside job and what happened afterwards with trampling all over our rights with the Orwellian “Patriot Act” was the last straw that broke the camel’s back). I tell you, I feel like I have been given a new chance to life. I was pretty depressed when I was in States, but now I smile everyday! 🙂 Like something you said, people you don’t know smile at you and practice acts of kindness all the time. I feel and look a hundred times better. I’ve been practicing act of kindness to all people all my life as long as I know they won’t take it as weakness. I know these days all you hear about muslims is negative and the picture painted by MSM is pretty bleak, but I was born and raised as a muslim (Shia) and one of the things I was taught as a child was that “we humans are all brothers and sisters regardless of race color or religion”. Later on in life I realized, religions and governments are there to divide and control us. Their trick is to mix the truth and lies together but the outcome is always the same. The world is badly in need of a makeover. In a man made matrix, when the Titanic is about to sink, the public is busy rearranging the furniture on the deck. I’m glad I came across your site. enjoyed reading your feelings, now I know I’m not crazy! 🙂 peace!

  6. Well written piece, Great perspective and good advice as to start treating people as you would like to be treated. I for one could use a tune-up in this regard. I’ve been so pissed off lately, that it would be nice to start to laugh again and enjoy life a little. Seems far off for now though. There are a couple of billionaires we need to get strung up first.

    1. The same here #1 NWO ,I`m looking for some cheap land for a few of us you know #1 ! We all got to be trustworthy ya know , That`s why I trust a few of you guys here. – Your covered.here also #1, just let me know ya know, eh ——— Your a good guy REDHOURSE for doing things like you offer to #1. it seems anyway. Ya sound like a good guy Redhorse.

    1. I thank you for the kind invitation REDHORSE. I may very well take you up on it when it looks like it’s really going to hit the fan.
      I’ve literally got no one I can trust to have my back, as most of those I know don’t even see it coming.
