We are all living in a make-believe world, a world that feeds our illusions, disorders and overall neurosis. We are trained to believe that some of us are better than others due to our status, be it race, financial gains and oh yes religious beliefs. Many of us are a byproduct of societies boxed in version of what a man or a woman is supposed to act or look like and fall for the fixer upper version of gender transition. As if surgery and a chemical substance that is imitating the real thing, is going to magically turn us into that gender we think we are. I too am a victim of this programming and have forever had my world changed due to set beliefs.
People live a life beyond their means, are a slave to a broken system and are none the wiser for it. Lying to themselves and others in the quest to achieve a self-centered need, not caring what the ramifications might be. During our journey, it has been 65 days since we left South Florida and the "comforts" of a boxed in home, where being caged seems to be the norm in societies view, we have learned many things along the way. We are taught if we don't pay rent or a mortgage we're somehow are defected and breaking the rules. I want to point out to my readers that not long ago, the natives of this land and the natives of other parts of the world before the European took over, lived happily in the land that belonged to everyone and no one. We did not have to pay to have a safe place to live, nor for the foods that mother earth provided. Fast forward a bit, and things are much different. They called my people savages and uncivilized, yet they shared what they had amongst each other and even welcomed the white man, to then be deceived and raped by them.
Why can't people open up their eyes and stop living this artificial life they are living, they are slowly killing themselves and it is all based on the way they live their lives. Not only by the chemicals they are placing in their bodies, but by their actions as well. We have forgotten how to live, there is no compassion, people do not do right by each other, and are to concerned with keeping up with the Joneses. There is an ever essence of anger, frustration, lack of patience and sickness, yes lots of sicknesses, from mental to physical, just look around, most are on some sort of prescription drug cocktail, overweight, unhappy and depressed. As I sit here in a library in Redding California, writing this blog, there are over 10 people coughing in different areas of the place. We have noticed how sick people are in America, in every place we visit, there is a bunch of sick Americans, sniffling, coughing and sporting a huge belly from overindulging in what they consider to be food. Many are incapable of leading a conversation, are mentally incapable of being social, and walk around with a chip on their shoulder and entitlement.
Traveling is definitely a way of getting a major education, to really help one learn what this country and its people are all about. Sitting in front of a computer and TV for most of the day tends to numb you of reality, and unfortunately, programs you to believe what they want you to believe and how to think and be. We have lost all ability to think for ourselves, to make righteous decisions, and to overall lead a life that one can be proud of. We have sold our soul and don't even see it. Listen, I am as messed up as the rest, I too drank the Kool-Aid and now that red dye is all over me and impossible to wash off, but I am aware, and I will speak up every chance I get. I no longer live life-based on material needs, in fact, I consider myself a minimalist and only purchase what is really needed, and trust me, I require very little to live. As far as my gender confusion and so-called gender disorder, I can say this, it is deeper and much more complicated than most people care to understand. Childhood traumas, lack of self-worth, and a trillion of other life-based issues lead to this disorder. No one is born wrong, and there is nothing wrong with our bodies, we take gender way too seriously, and not by coincidence either, it's been programmed that way. There is lots of profit to be made and lots of people who have no clue about what they are doing leading this parade.
I find and I know many will not agree with me, that transitioning solves absolutely nothing, I see the same people who after transition continue to have the same problems they had prior, and frankly it appears to get worse, for now, they have medical issues, heightened depression from the hormonal cocktail they are on, and messed up endocrine systems. Surgery after surgery, in hopes that they can change the unchangeable, to only end up even more depressed, broke, sick and sometimes dead. Transition seems to be a temporary fix and a not so good one at that.
Living surrounded by nature, seeing the wildlife and all the wonders of this beautiful planet makes you rethink life in general. We are living in troubled times, and we better do something about it before it is too late. I wish people could realize that their true disorder has nothing to do with their looks, but all to do with their deeper being, the lack of true essence, true value and true self-worth. You don't have to be something you are not, you don't have to hurt yourself to achieve what the magazines and television tells you, you should be. Travel inward, fix the spirit, not the building.
The journey has only just begun, we continue to travel on this beautiful planet, until next time. Go, go GypsyBlue.....
