The Tides of March
SUBHEAD: As we are constantly reminded, the real issue is obtaining of food, water, shelter, security and friendship. By Juan Wilson on 21 March 2012 for Island Breath - (http://islandbreath.blogspot.com/2012/03/tides-of-march.html) Image above: Still image from video below. Yesterday, March 20th, was the Spring Equinox of 2012. Today is a day of respite. According to some. tomorrow is scheduled to be another cosmic disaster in the manner of the Japanese tsunami of March 11, 2011. See videos below for some explanation. There is not a lot you can do about that... except seek higher ground in a cave with suitable radiation shielding. As exciting as all this seems, it is my opinion that individuals need to be responding to what are more clear and present dangers. People seem to be avoiding thinking about what are clear and present dangers, and focusing on issues that they either have little power to influence; or, if influenced, will have little affect on their life situations. An example of the former is spending a great deal of energy on electoral politics; an example of the latter is spending a great deal of time on magical thinking. There are real threats to the status quo in your life. Just take a look at Obama's Executive Order for National Defense Resources Preparedness that was issued on March 15th. The order does not specify the threat(s). They could be anticipating a resource, financial or military crisis. It could be all of the above. One thing is clear, the current US administration is preparing to oversee a very rocky time ahead. A signal in the wind is the intractably rising cost of energy, and the threat it raises on the continuity of business as usual - particularly in the "First World". We have been fixated on this issue since reading Kunstler's "Long Energency" in 2005. The following financial collapse into the Great Recession was to be expected. Over the next year we are likely to see another shoe drop - namely another major step down from the heights of wealth and power achieved at the end of the 2oth Century, just before September 11th, 2001. Since then we have seen power, wealth and freedom eroding. As we are constantly reminded, the real issue to to us all is obtaining of food, water, shelter, security and friendship where ever it is we intend to be when the shit hits the fan. That means investing in self reliance now, while that is still relatively easy. Build yourself a lifeboat before the planks are all gone. Besides having a lifeboat, one needs provisions for it. It will take you time to have passable skills at tending a garden; raising hens; obtaining potable water; fixing your shelter; or mending your wounds. Get cracking! According to the "seers" you've got about nine months. That 39 weeks is the gestation period for a human. Be reborn!
