Preppers

Daily Draw: Tao Oracle ~ Power of the Small

Hexagram 9
Imprudent to force change, avoid despair
Depend on intuition, be devoted to the truth
Let go of anxiety, doubt, strategies of the ego
Remain detached, maintain gentleness and dignity
Abide by proper principles, share with others
Move forward cautiously and conscientiously

I think there have always been preppers, and certainly post WWI and WWII and the red menace of the 1950s and 1960s when long term food storage became possible. Is their attitude and actions strengthened by associating with other preppers? Or by associating true conditions with practical need?

Did you know you can start fire with a few shreds of steel wool and the contact end of a battery? I'm reminded by this card the world is stuffed with people who will happily take whatever they want, leaving preppers on the curb gnawing on their boot leather.

"The thing about madness was, it just took so damn much energy, and it was so thoroughly tedious in the meantime." ~ Laurie R. King 1954-

  1. I think in these troubled times we can imitate the spider. Go about our daily things. The spider just spins her web and keeps herself busy doing spidery things. When the rain, the wind, or a broom knocks down her web, she just gets busy spinning again.

  2. To live so far in the future would make me crazy; I would always think of something I lacked in preparation.

I welcome your thoughts. Good bad or indifferent; opinions are the lifeblood of conversation and I always learn something from anyone with a new point of view. Thank you for visiting, Sharyn
