There is a huge resurgence of Do-It-Yourselfers and independent living enthusiasts in the U.S., also called “getting off the grid” with the numbers growing all the time. The Internet is one of the best tools for finding out how to do this.
This is perceived by some as extremism. If one thinks the nation is going to turn upside down in the next few years, and that they’ll be vindicated, then, yes, I would say this is an extreme view. However, what I see isn’t that there is an extremism movement, but that people are tuning into their intuition, recognizing that their lives are dependent on their own actions, promises from any ‘outside-of-themselves source’ i.e. the government, are rarely going to happen, if at all. An important factor in this perception is not knowing the correct timeline for this self-reliance to be most needed.
The movement isn’t happening just because of fear. Extremism is happening because of fear, but not the movement to DIY and becoming more independent. This is based on an inner resource. What I “see” is that times are coming when DIY skills and grid independence are going to be needed, and people are intuitively tuning into this need for more self-reliance – a need which will grow in the coming decades as populations grow around the entire Earth.
All this is coming forth into our awareness, because it’s all going to be needed. But, don’t mistake this for living alone and relying only on one’s self. This is not what is needed. As human beings, we need one another. We need to rely on each other, as well. God created us to need one another, and efforts to be an island unto one’s self don’t succeed. Neighborhoods and communities which foster cooperation and helping one another have been successful for millennium after millennium.
The road ahead I see is this:
Food prices are set to rise significantly in the next three years specifically (2014-2016) at a greater rate of increase than average. Starting in 2016, poor government actions and judgement directly impacting several contributing factors will set the foundation for 6 years of reduction of support to the majority of people, with support instead going to corporations and bigger business.
This will push for even greater reliance on corporations and bigger businesses to supply the needs of most Americans. In general, I see most people who run corporations seeking to maximize profits (which corporations are always designed to fulfill.) However, in the U.S. with corporate level efforts to control more and more of consumer markets, many of the alternatives to corporate products, which are available today, will no longer be allowed to be available.
Those that are seeking to be DIYers and move towards more independence will be in better positions to ride through the years ahead, because, after the 6 years, which end in 2022, there will be no turning back the tide of what is coming.
The population is rising around the planet leading up to 8 billion people. This will lead, going into the 2030’s and 2040’s to experience much of what was experienced in the 1930’s. A trend in the 2020’s will lead into the decade of the 2030’s where there will be a tighter supply of food. It will be harder to afford what is affordable in today’s world. The hardships will fall on the vast masses of people. The government will be unable to do anything to help, because this will have been set in motion many decades even before the results manifest.
We see today the results of decisions made decades ago. In the same way, today’s decisions, whether left or right, good or bad, will manifest decades from now.
What Can We Do
What can we do as people today? Educate ourselves, believe in ourselves. Rely on that which comes from within. Let go of thinking that someone other than our self will make our lives better. Let go of thinking that an elected official controls the quality of our own life.
Allow yourself to entertain the real idea that there may be more to life than just a physical existence. Ask the spiritual world to come forth for the purpose of helping. Entertain the idea of Christ as “a better friend” to us than we’ve imagined, and we’ve been to Him, and Him willing to give His very best to help His friends who welcome Him in. Remember, Spiritual help that goes unused or untried, accomplishes nothing. Spiritual help only becomes practical – only works in helping us with our lives on the Earth – if it is practiced and put to practical and pragmatic use in our lives – by applying our Spiritual principles to the different parts of our everyday lives for the goodwill and benefit of ourselves and others together.
