It make me sad to see so many people existing around me who have their eyes wide shut like children afraid of what may lurk in the dark refusing to open them and look for themselves, I started out with anger frustration that any and all words said to them fall on deaf ears yet any and all words said to then from the idiot box (TV/MEDIA) is like god has spoken to them alone, after anger and frustration came a feeling of hopelessness, dis-pare, and depression for my brothers and sisters, then came arrogance from myself towards others who cannot see behind the veils, then came pity and grief for those around me, and finally (i think) love, understanding, tolerance, forgiveness. For I know who i am and what light i choose to stand under if any, I can show the way, but i am unable to force, trick, manipulate, lie, undermine and just plain bull$hit to others as to why they should need to use the door i am trying to show them, "you can lead a horse to water but cannot force the horse to drink" In my circle I am known to others a conspiracy nut despite all topics i have presented to others and backed with truth, (Sigh i cannot argue with children unless i am a child, so i choose not to)
my goal in life apart from achieving nothing short of happiness is to break away from my fellow humans who have lost their connections with our mother (earth, nature whatever you may perceive that to be) and get back to grass roots and become self sufficient once again,
who am I? apart from being another version of you I grew up surrounded by national forest we generated our own power using solar cells and wind turbines (petrol genny for back-up) a solar and brickett hot water system, we grew all our own veggies and meat (approx %70-80) rain water and dam water, the ONLY connections we had with the outside world was a land line and sat phone, the only thing i wish that was different would have being home schooled instead of public education (i would ride my bike 45km one-way to go to school) and when i became 18 i decided to move into town ..........that was 9 years ago now and while i regret alot of choices i have made i dont believe i would have grown up to be the man i always wanted to be (choices i made right or wrong, good or bad have made me who i am today, and who i am is who i always wanted to be)
one day soon i will return to the bush and once again see the stars light up bright and hear the sounds of silence only nature can provide...... but then again i might just bring the bush and the spirit i feel into town and lead by example to others, let them see what they are missing out on, what they are losing for their children and future generations.
hmm the saying "be the change, BE the will to change, what you wish to see" sits well with me
Love this speech:

I personally prefer to be the thorn in the side of those that would opress us. My goal is to move the man one by one (as little at a time as he is willing to learn). I see each one having different levels of fear, but nothing is as gratifying than to have a small success with a newcomer and him /her wanting to learn more. I never intend to move out or drop out, but to embrace the beauty of civilization as well as the wonders of nature.
Looks like we are on the same path. Power to the new leaders.
