Why Do We Feel So Free?

Published

on

In today’s world, the concept of freedom often gets tangled in a web of contradictory ideals. Many people equate freedom with the ability to do whatever they please, assuming that society should cater to their needs. However, true freedom is far deeper and more fulfilling, rooted in responsibility and independence rather than reliance on others.

The Essence of Freedom: Responsibility and Independence

In its most pure form, freedom emerges from taking responsibility for our lives. It’s about recognizing that our actions and decisions shape our reality and that outsourcing our responsibilities to others diminishes our sense of autonomy. When we rely heavily on others to meet our needs, we inevitably sacrifice some of our freedom.

Independence means standing on our feet and making choices based on our values and priorities. It involves taking control of our finances, our time, and our well-being. This pursuit doesn’t mean we should reject all forms of help or community support; instead, we prioritize self-sufficiency as much as possible.

Misconceptions About Freedom

Some define freedom as the ability to behave however they want while expecting the right to service. This entitlement mindset overlooks the importance of contributing to society and being accountable for one’s actions. This misplacement of obligations and entitlement sets people up for absolute disappointment. Real freedom is not about escaping responsibilities but embracing them. It’s about understanding that with freedom comes the duty to care for ourselves and our surroundings.

The Pursuit of Freedom

Feeling genuinely free is not solely about being entirely self-sustaining or independent; it’s about the journey toward that goal. For some, this might mean starting a side business to achieve greater financial independence, while for others, it could be running an 80-acre homestead. The key is in the pursuit—the ongoing effort to reclaim more control over one’s life.

This journey toward independence fosters a sense of accomplishment and liberation. Each step taken toward self-sufficiency, no matter how small, builds confidence and a deeper sense of freedom. It’s in the striving and gradual shifts toward greater autonomy that we find a genuine sense of liberation.

The Path to Independence

The first step towards true freedom is acknowledging how dependent we currently are. This acceptance is crucial, providing a clear starting point to plan and take action. From there, making effective plans to start taking ownership and responsibility is essential. This might include:

  • Assessing Finances: Create a budget, reduce debt, and increase savings to build a financial cushion.
  • Learning New Skills: Acquire skills that promote self-reliance, such as gardening, cooking, or basic home repairs.
  • Setting Goals: Define independence and set achievable goals to work towards it.
  • Building a Support Network: While independence is critical, having a community or network on the same journey for support and knowledge sharing is invaluable.

True freedom is a blend of responsibility, independence, and self-sufficiency. It’s about owning our lives and making choices that align with our values. We cultivate a profound sense of freedom by acknowledging our current dependencies and actively working towards greater self-reliance. In the end, it’s the journey towards independence that genuinely liberates us.

Sincerely,

The Beartaria Times

The Strength of 10 Friends Within 10 Miles

Published

on

When I think about this amazing advice, it reminds me of when I was young, riding my bike to my friend’s house and connecting with all the local kids.

Something about close friends being close gives you a feeling of comfort. It is different from the kind of comfort that makes you lazy, as if you are going to have Electric Bear also mow your lawn and do your dishes.

The comfort satisfies the feeling of needing more in your life.
Most of us could use more money, time, and resources, but having those ten friends within 10 miles covers a lot of angles of support and leisure.

Planning with friends can sometimes be difficult, but when you have a friend that calls you up saying, “Hey, I’m driving by. Can I drop off something you will like?”.

It just makes it easy; it can even change the way you think.

When we are blessed with an abundant harvest or meat from the land or local hunters, there is a warm feeling of happiness and a desire to share our blessings with others.

When tasks that will take some time come up, it’s easy to call a friend and ask to hang out and throw some wood around, for example.
What may take you an hour alone could take you 20 minutes, then an additional couple hours talking gravy of course.

The guidance of 10 friends within 10 miles was the bridge from an online community to a full-blown real-life nation of legends.

From the macro community at The Beartaria Times National Festival to the micro-communities all around the world.
Having ten friends in 10 miles has been a goal and a cornerstone of our pursuit of happiness and prosperity.

It’s a great question for anyone to reflect on. Do I have ten friends within 10 miles?
You could go further: are those ten friends clean? Are they trying to live a good life?
Are they ambitious? Optimistic?
Realistic?

Everyone has different traits and characters, and it’s always good to have a strong balance of other characters around you. Although, it’s always worth ensuring you are in good company, and if not the best, at least not pulling you down.

Having my 10+ friends within 10 miles is fantastic; it’s like a village inside of the wider society. What is remarkable about this personal venture is when you travel and connect with a friend further away, if they have ten friends in 10 miles, you become a guest in another village; it becomes so easy to experience social networking on a rapid level naturally.

This goal and experience has been huge for me and so many others. We see its benefits daily, and we can only begin explaining the benefits and protections for potential events.

In Beartaria, we are not isolationists; we pursue independence and self-reliance but connect and support others on that path.

For the many people who don’t have ten friends in 10 miles, consider getting active on The Beartaria Times App.
The benefit of The Beartaria Times App is that we typically lock in with many values beyond common interests. A lot of us are kind of like hardened warriors of cultural warfare but now semi-retired or let our guard down and feel peace in the castle walls.
Many other members on the app may have not been around since its founding but totally get the new vision for social media. A family friendly, drama free environment that is a tool for real world benefit.

Looking to your local community is an obvious route to expanding your local network and connecting with people who might be in places of interest is super valuable.
Meeting a friend at the farm store can align you with common interests and lifestyle for example.

While we see the benefits of 10 friends within 10 miles, we hope to never to see the days when it’s not just for fun and thriving but also survival.
Those ten friends can make all the difference in our lives. Isolation can be brutal and a tactic to weaken us to other things.
I don’t want to list bug-out protocols or disasters that could happen and how ten friends would be huge for us. However, be sure, it’s always better to have a strong local community.

Ten friends in 10 miles is a part of our strength; individually and collectively, it adds strength to the full spectrum.

Our intentions,
Our minds,
Our muscles,
To act,
Our family,
Our friends
Our tribe
Intact,
Our county,
Our state,
Our nation,
In fact,
Our faith,
Our creed
Our motives
We lead.
