A. Getting More Free Time:
1. I am wasting less of my time (LIFE) watching, listening to and reading THOUGHT LEADERS, ie, TV, movies, radio, music, newspapers, magazines and novels. These are like spectator sports. They cause me to live life vicariously, ie, second-hand, not real, only in fantasy. These mind conditioners are subtly designed to create not only fear and anger emotions but also create feelings of guilt and inadequacy. These feeling stifle growth and keep one securely in one’s rut. And of course the more visible purpose of the media is to create the desire to acquire (BUY! BUY! BUY!) and keep up with the Joneses. ‘Buying’ uses up my savings. I spent 22 years of my TIME (life) working as a Wage Slave. I helped perpetuate the status quo, ie a world of 98.6% Slaves and less than 1% Elite (Billionaires). I don’t wish to do that any more.
2. l am talking less ‘trivia.’ I will try to take responsibility and lead conversations into areas that are meaningful and interesting to me (or l will find someone else to talk with). This will give me more meaningful input and more free time, to think about what l would really like to do with my life, to experiment with different ideas and to experience the ones l like best. I wish to discover what it would be like to be a “Natural” human being (instead of a “Normal” one, who conforms and obeys) to see it I would like that better. I plan to spend more of my time trying to discover what makes ME happy.
B. Got rid of all my debts and credit cards.
C. Getting rid of my surplus possessions.
D. Getting my rent down as low as I can.
E. Teaching myself how to choose my thoughts, so that I can choose not to linger on self-destructive thoughts, and I am learning to focus on thinking about creating more freedom and happiness for myself.
G. Learning ways to live happily on very little money, ie, becoming more independent. (People with lots of money don’t need to do this. In the present system – MONEY IS INDEPENDENCE).
H. Experimenting with food. I’m discovering which foods and how much my body prefers. It tells me when I pay attention.
I. Got rid of my vehicle as soon as it felt like a burden.
J. Won’t attempt to gain Power over anyone. A slave’s chain has two ends.
K. Striving to be free and happy. I share my methods of happiness with others if they are interested.
L. Overcoming the fear of being alone. I realize that loneliness is only a thought and I am gaining control of my thoughts.
M. Worrying less about what people (including mother) think about me.
N. Starting to try some new things, friends, places, skills, routes, foods, areas, etc.
O. Absorbing new and useful input into my biocomputer and avoiding much trivia helps me surpass my old programming of “garbage in – garbage out” ie my old way of life.
Each has the potential to become a genius in some area. But most are astray with trivial diversions.
“Plow your furrows deep while sluggards sleep, and you shall have corn to sell and keep.” – Benjamin Franklin
How much is too much?
What portion of my conversation is trivia?
How can I expect to accomplish anything but TRIVIA if I allow that to be my major focus?
(However, at this point in my evolution, I seem to need some trivia. My ability to focus on the important is still limited).
DEMOCRACY IS NOT FREEDOM (Except for the Elite)
I was programed to feel reverent whenever I heard, saw or thought the word democracy. Tears would almost form in my eyes. I assumed that Democracy was a wonderful thing to have. l never looked it up in the Dictionary. I never thought of it as ‘Government and Bureaucrats.’ I thought of it as an entity; being there to protect, care for me and give me FREEDOM! What an ignoramus I was. I had no notion that there was any “alternative” except some worse kind of government. I took it all for granted. I assumed I (we) controlled it because I (we) had voted. It was DEMOCRACY! How naive I was. Just another one of the “suckers” Barnum said are born every minute.
Websters New World Dictionary:
Democracy: Government by the people, directly or through representatives.
Government: The exercise of authority over a Slate (of people), organization, etc.: control; rule.
The “Rule of the Majority” is a farce! In practice it has always been “The Rule of the Minority” ie the manipulators ie the Elite. No thank you! You can have them both. I don’t have a need or desire to be ruled by either or anyone!
DEMOCRACIES and other governments have kept people in wage slavery for the past 5,000 years or more. ALL GOVERNMENTS are basically the same – they RULE! Rules create conformity. Rules create the status quo. Rules create slavery. Rules stifle creativity. Rules prevent INDIVIDUAL freedom! I do not desire to have people rule me directly or through representatives. I am not a cow or a sheep. I refuse to remain domesticated. I am fully capable of ruling myself. I do not desire to rule anyone. I just want to be FREE! And I am getting more free because I’m not playing their games much anymore. I no longer GIVE my consent to be ruled, I no longer vote for a Ruler or for Laws!
My chosen work right now is writing and publishing. I give my work for free. My past 18 years of payless working has been far more fun than my previous 22 years of paid working. We volunteers are in control of the how, when, if, where, why, what and who we give our work to. Volunteers have more freedom than paid workers. When everyone is a volunteer everything will be free for me, and for everyone else as well!
