As the world becomes more crazy, it is necessary to share a little common sense, good values and truth. The immediate need for these basic principles is what compels me to post this live as it's being written. During these times, we're continually bombarded with inadequate information from questionable sources. This is why people need to hear simple, solid, down to earth truth. There's a certain power in the truth. Nothing else is required. No membership fees, no fine print, no coercion, no selling of one's soul. Like a seed, all the truth needs is a little light shined on it to grow. Writing about it here is one small way to do this.

The Truth Farm will someday be a place. This book is its blueprint. The first thing I'll say is that if you're not already living off the land or growing your own food, you should probably read this gradually rather than all at once. This might sound impractical, but the truth is uncompromising and when you've been fed lies your whole life beginning at childhood and unknowingly accepted them as reality, it's going to take some time for your brain to consider something vastly different even if it is true, let alone adopt it into your life. Our minds are creatures of habit. People believed the world was flat a lot longer than we've known it to be round. I've had decades to compile what I'm about to share with you. Read a chapter and put it down for even a year. I'm not trying to sound patronizing, but this information will be hitting you all at once and this can feel overwhelming like crossing the Grand Canyon on a tight rope with the vastness of how far we've strayed from the truth below you. It's probably best not to keep looking down into the abyss until you're on more solid ground. Keep your balance by focusing on what's directly in front of you until you get to a more stable place. However if you are reading this book, you may be the type of person who is not deterred by the sometimes overwhelming weight of the truth, but rather continually searches for more. If you're already in a stable place and you're hungry for a lot of truth all at once then have at it.

The other reason I'm writing this live is because writing a book takes time and so does working for a living. I'm not independently wealthy. I don't have the luxury to sit around all day and write. Time is money in this world and if you're not working for what you consume, someone else is. Who's going to pay my bills while I'm writing, some publishing company? I'm not interested in becoming a writer. I'm a worker, a farmer, a fisherman and a builder and proud of it. I'm not interested in sitting around while others work. And for the record, if someone doesn't mention money early on when you're developing your first impression of them, they're hiding something and most likely trying to sell you something else. There's an unspoken rule in our society to stay clear of conversations about money, the single most valuable commodity in our world, but what this social more is really an attempt at is pressuring us to avoid talking about the truth. If a person doesn't mention money, they're trying to get you to buy into something while they hide something else. There's no other reason to avoid the truth.

As you're crossing the canyon and realize you've been walking on a rickety bridge for most of your life that could collapse at any moment, it's important to become familiar with solid terms like work, fuel tank, joy, justified unhappiness, emotional availability and more because these terms will be building blocks like bricks in the road you're now traveling on. The more truth you welcome into your life the more building blocks you will have until you fill the emptiness that was once below you. Quicker than you expect, you will find yourself walking on the solid stable earth. To find each block and put it to the test, I had to live everything I write about to assure that it is reliable. This isn't a book of ideas. The words and terms represented here are tools that have been tested. Ideas alone are nothing without action. If an idea or belief didn't work, it was thrown out.

People write books for different reasons, maybe to make a lot of money or to become famous. That's not why I'm writing this and that's why it's free and anonymous. This is more like a shop manual for life and happiness than it is a novel for entertainment. If people can't put this information to good use then there's no point in writing it. The other reason I'm remaining anonymous is because I like my privacy. I'm not interested in becoming part of the absurd world of the media. I don't need attention or the approval of fools. If honest, hard working people benefit from this, that's all the approval I need. A person shouldn't have to sacrifice their privacy in order to reach others. The truth should be free and available to anyone willing to bear it. Even though it is much easier to stay true to a solitary path, happiness cannot be achieved alone. Do not try to live according to the truth by yourself. It is too much for one person to carry in a world of lies. Though it may require you to compromise personal preferences, find others willing to live according to the truth with you. Without others, we only serve our minds. Together we can serve our hearts which are our greatest links to the truth.

Lastly, I'll say that the truth is not only vital to the survival of our species on this planet, as we know it, but, it is, also, a requirement for living a happy, honest and useful life. You cannot live according to lies and be happy, but to take everything in this book and apply it to your life idealistically could drive a person insane. Not because living according to pure truth is crazy. It's not. It's beautiful, but the world we are living in at this stage in human history is crazy. Trying to live sane in an insane world can be very dangerous, but knowing the truth offers a person the comfort that it's not them who is crazy. It's this world. It's a wild and amazing world, too, which is why it is very easy to get lost in it. Some people even choose to stay lost rather than face what they know is true, but denial is not a solution, only a temporary postponement of the inevitable because even this artificial world cannot exist without the truth. The truth is "N", north, on your compass. Always keep it in sight. No matter how crazy this world becomes, you can always trust the truth. The more you incorporate it into your life, the more you will improve your life while making the world a better place regardless of how imperfectly you may think your progress is. Just keep heading in the right direction. The perfection is in trying. If you are trying, you are perfect to me. Good luck.
