The Jeep Journals

I left my corporate job on 7/21/17 in order to help showcase Nature for Mother Nature fans online. I did not arrive easily at this decision since my corporate job paid extremely well and included amazing benefits. Alas, the one benefit I was not easily allowed was the time to immediately pursue any and all wild events happening any and all moments of every day throughout the world. I know it would have helped me greatly to see more Nature during the work week, so that is what I’ve set out to bring to you. Stay tuned!

Follow the Herd

Friday, June 17, 2022 6:12 AM

Is anyone else out there NOT following the herd? I mean, in a way we all are… But overall, are there any free thinkers left who can see something that is out of alignment in the way we approach life itself? Not many will cry over spilled milk, because that is what we were taught by our fathers… What then of the spilled blood from the thousands of animals that perished? What about the thousands from genocide? Or from disease?

All in all things appear to be ramping up. Yellowstone recently closed all four entrances to their HUGE National Park, families appear to be falling apart at an unprecedented rate, and sometimes not even the mothers, not even mother nature herself, seems to be paying any homage. Or is she? Are these major events the only way we can “recognize” right from wrong? Is it right, what is happening? Is it wrong to overlook any of it?

It is another Friday here (just clicked Skip This Version on the update screen that JUST NOW popped up to interrupt) and here we are going at it business as usual. It is none of my business though… Or is it? If I subscribe to the business of cattle, or of slavery (i.e. discount chocolate, clothing, or anything assembled by those with much less than myself), do I not make it my own business? And how are those investments paying off?

In this era where we are able to communicate with lightning speed, do we actually communiate at all anymore? Is it just errors based on lack of attention? Is it mindful, what we are doing? Do we mind at all what is happening around us? Some of those who used to engage with me and who claimed they might engage with me shy away because what I say is said with a bit more urgency than is being showcased on the local media...

Is what I am saying damaging to our nation? Is it damaging to our egos? Do our egos tend to take things a bit out of context? I’ll say this one thing and then I will close: Our FATHERS who have had the most opportunity to raise the most resources (and votes) are continuing to invest heavily in the trades of the past when they know full well that we can already begin to invest heavily in something else, like solar, rather than gambling on the old ways.

Will our times need to become so tough that even this flittering thought among a hive mentality gets eliminated, either by falsehood or by adversity? Do we need to revert to sorcery and times of old wive’s tales (not my words, someone else conjured up those phrases) in order to “teach” one another what is sustainable and what is leading towards additional global cataclysms (cattleclysms)? I am not insensitive, I am just being punny. I hope you have an amazing day.
