A Farmer’s Message to Tony Robbins, Napoleon Hill, Jay Abraham, And Money Grubbers Everywhere.
Dear Normal Folk,
It’s important to “think about your thoughts”.
Most folks don’t do this. But if you can think about your thoughts… you’re moving along the road toward true enjoyment.
There are tons of self-help preachers out there who want you to measure your success in terms of money. Piles and piles of money.
If you’re successful, they say, you’ll be able to count your money and brag.
You have a bigger house. A nicer ride. And a bigger tax bill.
If you listen to these yahoos… you just might think they all work for the ultimate money-changers of the world. The money printers and money-lenders.
But how do you measure the worth of a man?
What if you measure the worth of a man by the beautiful sunsets he sees?
What if you measure the worth of a man by the wonderful kids he has?
What if you measure the worth of a man by the ripe tomatoes he grows and eats?
What if you measure the worth of a man by the flowers he grows?
What if you measure the worth of a man by the quality of the compost piles he has?
Think about your thoughts.
You don’t need new Cadillac SUV.
You need to love serving people.
You don’t need to skirt the edges of right and wrong.
You need to be content with what you have.
Some of the greatest men I’ve ever met didn’t even own a walking stick.
If you fall into the mental thinking of the money-grubbers, you’ll soon be the slave of the folks at the top of the pyramid (the money printers).
NOTE: Farmers grow food. Money printers grow inflation prices..
Even farmers need to guard against the “thinking” of the money-grubbers.
Many, many farmers have believed the propaganda of top of the pyramid. They are farmers… but they are in reality slaves of the banking system. They are mortgaged up to their eyeballs to pay for equipment, buildings, deliveries of insecticides, herbicides, patented seeds, etc.
These same farmers struggle to make money on 1,000 acres.
But… and get this… there are farmers who don’t mortgage the future. They stay small. Instead of a tractor they depend on a digging fork. Instead of an assembly line slaughter-house farm, they have a small artisan operation .
The mortgage brokers just can’t suck money out of small operations.
For small operations, money is not the point.
The point is the enjoyment of life. You can’t tax that kind of enjoyment.
What if this idea caught on? What if a 1,000-acre-farm devolved into 1,000 one-acre farms.
Unemployment numbers would change.
System dependent numbers would change.
Ways to measure wealth would change.
Below is the video of one farmer who is not falling for the siren’s song of riches measured in money.
Watch this video. In fact, watch it once a week. Until you can get it into your head that there is a way thinking that’s different.
Think about your thoughts.
Here is the video of Bob Canard’s farm.
Slow Food Farming
A tour of Bob Cannard’s farm in Sonoma as he describes farming that goes beyond organic. 2009
Bob says… 20 years ago, they hated us organic farmers. But now they cannot ignore us… long ago there were 20 million farmers in this country. Now there are less than 200,000 farmers, … But one day… in the future… due to fuel costs, transportation costs, the benefits of LOCAL food, and seasonal food benefits, benefits of freshness, maybe 20 years from now, there will be 20 million farmers again.
