Thanks Kibric for sharing your experience.
It seems difficult to find what we're looking for in a monastary.
What if you try to be a hermit in the remote areas....can you easily find a spring to get water for yourself? Maybe live in a cave and drink spring water + Nettle Tea is the answer.

You already looked for and found yours....That's Mrs Black.
You only get to promise yourself to one master.

You're talking ancient history man.
The secret's out now about how good it is here.

I have to take your word for it. I couldn't say for sure since I have never been there myself so I would be talking out my ass. But what indigenous people in Australia has told me is that it is not as good as "whitey" likes to pretend. Also on the surface it seems a bit like USA 2.0 in terms of culture and policy, which I personally can do without.

Also did you take history?

I live in the most privileged and wealthiest part of the world. It is a socialist system wrapped in a free market capitalism blanket. It has its bad sides, but overall when compared to 99% of the planet it is the highest quality of life you could imagine, highest level of safety and individual freedom and the highest level of opportunity. But yes there are issues that annoy me... but it would be luxury problems when you consider the reality most people find themselves in.

It's scary overseas compared to here.

You only feel this because you haven't travelled much. If you had you'd know it's the same everywhere with few exceptions.

:p

Thanks.
I'm considering this. I have duties 1st but gotta move soon somewhere with what funds i've got.
Work on your ranch ?. cool.

Yes, right now it is time to plant because it is the rainy season, I mainly plant corn for forage (cow food) since in winter it is necessary to feed the cattle, I also plant a few hectares to share with the family and the community. If you do not like having cattle, you can plant anything, I also have a fruit tree orchard.
You really don't need a lot of money to live here, least of all living from your land.
The richest is not the one who has the most but the one who needs the least, the one who knows himself as an atom of consciousness.

Jeez. I also heard the Northern Territories are closing their borders till 2022. Sounds like a nightmare if true. Also heard that I can travel to Berlin now without having to do any quarantine... feels a bit liberating I must say considering I am banned from most countries.

:p

I will if I am.

I think this is the best face mask solution right now for most people caught in the madness:

I haven't seen any face shields yet locally. We have a mask mandate, but tons of people are still ignoring it...including employees (except food places, they're good about it). Recently I've heard private radio advertisements from alleged doctors/nurses trying to quell people's fears and counter the Fauci narrative. But this is in southern Appalachia, so there is a strong rebel attitude. Probably more from stubbornness than from intelligence...but I'll take it.
