I’ll try to keep this short and sweet. We relocated to Hawaii! We now call the Puna area of the Big Island of Hawaii our home. It’s just our pace. Rural. Chickens and goats are allowed. Lots of hippies who live and let live. Instead of road rage we have hitchhiking. Slower, more tolerable pace of life. And we’re only 15 minutes to the ocean, which is fantastic!
As for work, I committed to a long-term relationship with North Platte, Nebraska! I will be coming and going to work in Psychiatry for the next several months and perhaps years (we’ll see how things progress). Most exciting is the fact that I opened up a CrossFit gym in North Platte! Check it out at crossfitnorthplatte.com! Of course I didn’t do it all by myself but had the help of my amazing business partner, Amy Penry. She is everything one could ask for in a partner! Hard working, kind, smart, capable and very passionate about CrossFit! And the CrossFit community here in North Platte is outstanding! Very welcoming and friendly and not afraid to give me a hard time even though we just met!
Ideally, I want to be free of the slavery system. This will clearly take some time but I’ve been working and planning in this direction for some time already. The monetary system is the current slavery system (which is why the founders of the USA said NO to Federal Reserve banking). It’s also what Bob Marley sang about. We are all slaves to money. So, my goal is to live off the land. When the economy worsens, people will stop wasting their money shaving their lawns and will wish they had planted food all along instead. I plan to live off the land so that I have little or no need for money, and will therefore be free to live independent of the slavery system. I hope all people soon recognize the inherent value in this lifestyle and we begin to transition away from the wasteful, commercial lifestyle rampant around the world nowadays.
I am working to save capital to start other business projects. All investors know to diversify and relying on one job is fairly risky. My plan is to develop multiple streams of income so that I am not reliant on one single job to provide for me and my family. Ultimately, I want to purchase land in Hawaii where I catch the rainwater, utilize solar power, have my own source of raw dairy be it a cow or a goat or two, and have a chicken coop for chickens and eggs. Also, everything grows well there so I want to have avocado, papaya, mango, banana and pineapples growing on my land, among vegetables and herbs in the garden.
Once this is complete I will only have to pay property tax. (See, I will NEVER be truly FREE), but at least my food, water and shelter will be mine. And anyone willing to live by the laws of love and respect will be welcome to participate in our community.
I spent my whole childhood upset about two things. Well, not just these two, but these ones are crucial:
1 – Strangers wouldn’t say “Hi” on the street.
2 – There’s no food unless you have money.
Within the upcoming years, I will have these things for my kids. It took me many years and much learning to realize that the monetary system is a slavery system and the only way I know to achieve freedom from it is to provide for myself and others from the land, and to provide valuable services or good for others and barter (a.k.a. sharing).
It always felt so wrong to me to be born into this world with nothing, yet I am unable to walk outside and eat food in my environment. City life was ludicrous. One MUST work as a slave in some way just to meet basic needs of food, water and shelter. There was only grass, cement and the street, and the occasional dirt patch. Well, I plan to make my dreams come true for the next generation as best I can, starting with my family. And thanks to my own mom and pop for working so hard to provide for me in this system because they too couldn’t find food in the world without hard-earned cash.
Everyone in my life has been so supportive of my endeavors and things are finally coming together after so many years of investment and sacrifice. It’s incredibly exciting and I thank you all for your support and your prayers.
If you ever make it to the Big Island in Hawaii or are passing through Nebraska, don’t hesitate to let me know so we can plan to spend some time together!
