Feet in the Dirt

Have you put your feet in the dirt lately? Did you know that the earth carries a negative charge, and that you may actually feel better if you take five or ten minutes to stand barefoot in the dirt (or even in the grass)? Some people call this “grounding”, and for myself, has been a wonderful way to feel better after staring at a computer screen, or being on a cell phone, all day. Most objects on the ground carry a positive charge, and so by actually physically connecting with the earth, you can “stay balanced” electrically (we are energy).

 

The earth, and us as human beings, have an amazing connection. Just like we depend upon the earth (and universe) for energy to power up our computer and phones, we also rely on the earth to feed ourselves, and to of course, to have a clean water supply. There are many people in our country, who do not have the time to go and take their shoes off to stand in the dirt – there are arguably people who have never touched the earth’s surface with their bare feet – and it is my hypothesis that this creates people who are out of touch with the planet – literally and figuratively.

 

Until to put your feet in the dirt, or take your shoes off and put your feet in a stream or creek – you may not realize just how powerful the phenomena is. It is my goal to get as many people as possible taking their shoes off and taking 10 minutes to stand in the dirt. If you can actually get out on a trail, out of the city, that is even better. If you can put your hands in the dirt too, and plant something or grow something to eat – that is the next step to connecting to your power source – agriculture. But just a little bit helps – I bet you will see positive health benefits.

 

To A Peaceful, Prosperous, and Rebellious 2013

Each of us makes a difference. Each of us, even in our own little world of stocking shelves, serving food, driving trucks, delivering goods, tapping on the keyboard, and talking to friends and family – each action that we take is profound.

 

The government is made up of people – human beings – that can be changed (or manipulated for that matter). We – you and I – are the people that can make our government exist of people who cherish liberty, our natural rights, our right to protect ourselves, our right to express ourselves freely.

 

We do this by our own little interactions – in our community, in our town or city, and in our County. We can participate in State and national politics – but our real power is with our small circle of 10 or 20, who we can trust, who we can talk to, and who we can build our armies with.

 

To a very rebellious 2013 – let us rebel against the evil powers that seek to destroy, and instead – cherish, promote, and empower the creative forces that embrace peace and prosperity. Let us rebel against collective rights, like political parties, who have their own agenda. Let us rebel against the manipulative monetary system that erodes the wealth and property of all people. Let us rebel against the tyranny that seeks to destroy our light, as free and loving people.

 

Rebel with me, and let’s use the amazing power that we have – for good.

 

In Liberty,

 

Tisha

Merry Christmas – Jesus as Our Libertarian Friend

There are probably few better role models than that of Jesus Christ. It doesn’t matter what religion or spirituality encompasses your framework and world-view, looking at Jesus Christ as a person, based off of a well-known book called The Bible, shows that he is just the type of guy that many households could use right now – as a friend, a companion, a confidant, and a freedom-fighter.

 

As people who cherish liberty and our natural rights to do things like eat the food we want, maintain control over our property (including our body), and defend and protect ourselves and our loved ones from harm – we embrace individual rights. We embrace taking responsibility for ourselves. As Michael Badnarik eloquently points out in his lectures and Constitution classes, he says “I am King” – and that each of us, as individuals are Kings. We bow to no one. We are responsible for ourselves and cherish ourselves as individuals. This is unique to most forms of governments in the world – our country is still very free.

 

In Luke 17:21, Jesus is talking about where exactly the Kingdom of God is, and says that it is nether “here” nor “there”, “because the kingdom of God is within you” (New International Version Bible, 1984). Stop looking around – God is inside of us, and we are the Kings of our lives. And, as Badnarik would say, “It is good to be King”.

 

Jesus is the kind of friend that would not cast judgment on a person – he ate and drank with thieves (thieves at that time were the tax-collectors) and prostitutes, he was nice to everyone – he loved people where they were at. Like most of us who cherish liberty, we oftentimes find ourselves preaching to others, but we respect people’s individual choices and would never use force to change the behavior of another. Love versus force – a big gap in how to encourage behavior amongst our fellow men. I opt for using love to encourage behavior – not force.

 

Religions use “sin” as a word to cast judgment and prove “wrongness”. In Greek, “sin” literally means to “miss the mark”. And oh, how so many of us do miss that mark. Morality is subjective – there will be no agreement amongst humankind about right or wrong – but we can all think of ways that we “miss the mark”. In America, that mark is remembering that we are powerful individuals, and that our natural rights must be intact for us to not be slaves.

 

Jesus turned over the tables of the “money-changers” and was a rabble-rousing truth-seeker that caused problems for “the King”. Those money-changers (like the Federal Reserve today) and thieves (like the Internal Revenue Service (IRS)) were called out by Jesus – for their robbery of the people. They were eroding the wealth and property of the people, and Jesus had enough of it. He did not lay down, he did not shut up, he spoke out and eventually his life was taken for it.

 

There is no better way to celebrate this holiday (again, regardless of what you believe in as “God”) than to celebrate the rabble-rouser whose birth so many celebrate. So, this Christmas, I wish to you a merry time with friends, family, pets, etc. in celebration of the birth of a man who made enemies of those who would keep us on our knees.

Making Enemies of People Who Keep Us On Our Knees

What is your greatest fear? For me, after a lifetime of struggling with my own fears and worries, I am working on letting go of fear as much as I can. Because fear stops me from accomplishing things that I want to accomplish.

After so many fights, in my own mind – of being scared of death, scared of war, scared of terrorists, scared of God – I let go of my fears. I decided that I would spend my time loving my walk on earth, versus being terrified of all of the things that could go wrong while I am here.

Fear is the basis for most of our legislation, most of our laws, most of our communications from the media. Fear sells – it is arguably the most powerful human emotion – it is built in our DNA – to react to situations that are dangerous. We can’t change that. What we can change, if we want to create a better and more peaceful life for ourselves, our family, and our community – is how much we allow fear to control our actions. And that is something that can only be done on the individual level.

All of our great teachers and leaders have let go of fear to do something great. You may not like all of these people, and there are certainly character flaws in them (and us) that could be argued with no conclusion. We all have different likes and beliefs and don’t agree on everything. But it is true that these people were not afraid of death, and not afraid of speaking out against the people who keep us on our knees.

This year, for many people, the election is not about Right versus Left, Conservative versus Liberal, Republican versus Democrat. For many people, this election is about attempting to find people who are not corrupt, people who want to be public servants, people who do not want to make a career our of “politics”, people who will represent all of their constituency, and not just the people who belong to a particular party. These two sides pull us back and forth – stating the fears we should have if “the other party person” gets elected.

The truth is – these politicians from both “sides” are mostly all the same – they mostly all find ways to keep us on our knees. They mostly all work on legislation that erodes the rights of the individual, and they mostly all stay silent about the forces that have destroyed our economy – the erosion of the value of the dollar, the Federal Reserve System (inflation), and the corruption of the banking and financial industries that are in cahoots with representatives from the government.

If there is one thing that will save us and preserve the liberties that are unique to our country (although they are quickly being whittled away) – it will be the separation from acting in fear and instead acting out of love. Our enemies cannot control our outcome when we detach from their fear-based agendas. You and I are powerful people, and if we understand this and believe it – we can work together to make sure we ensure health, prosperity, and safety for our kids and grandkids. So what is your greatest fear? Can you let go – and work with me to find solutions?
