Be in the world but not of it. Is working 9 to 5, Monday thru Friday really worth it? Who told you, you have to do what others do and value what others value? I say, do your own thing, but before you reach the level of master or expert, a free spirit will have to endure a lot of hardship before they finally get to the lifestyle they want to live.
I know money is a real issue, and you need food, shelter, and clothing. That is obvious. But really, aren’t you doing too much? Why is living on a fixed income so looked down upon in this country? What does your money buy you?
I shop at a regular supermarket, a Stop n Shop here on long island. There’s a lot of food there. Whatever your heart desires. But most people don’t even know what to get to benefit themselves. They have no real education, so they spend too much money and eat too many calories and end up patients of the medical establishment.
There’s no need for a fancy supermarket like Whole Foods, unless you are a gourmet and insist on the best quality. You can live a long time in the land of abundance if you know what to choose.
Knowledge is Power, and a self directed education is the key to living a full life.
