I awake with the first rays of the rising sun shining through the windows of my abode. Since I don't have scheduled work by my official employer, the alarm on my dumb flip-phone is not set, so as to enjoy sleeping through every last second of available pre-dawn darkness.
Upon arising, I take a three minute shower...ice cold. Shockingly abrupt when I stick my head under the chilling spray, but deeply relaxing and soothing after the initial shock wears off. Positively energizing.
After toweling off, I grab my non-fluoridated, all natural toothpaste and give the pearly whites their daily scrubbing. Then I apply my all natural, cotton and baking soda-based underarm deodorant, before proceeding to get dressed.
Turning off my bedrooms incandescent bulb lighting, I leave the bedroom to enter my kitchen.
There, I fill up my stainless steel tea kettle with purified reverse-osmosis filtered water from my ceramic water dispenser, then put it on the stove and turn it on to high.
As the water starts to bubble and hiss, I measure out my daily dosage of fresh-roasted, organic Sumatran coffee beans into the grinder and rinse out the french press in preparation for the water that is about to scream from the boiling kettle.
Once the coffee has been ground and the boiling water added and then pressed, I cautiously take that first glorious sip of unadulterated and potently-caffeinated, Arabican nirvana. As I savor that first cup of the day, I log on to teh Interwebz and commence the days reading of the news through the lense of the reactionary fever swamps of our little corner of the blogosphere.
As the old Chinese curse goes, we are all blessed to be living in interesting times.
After the first cup is done and the perusal of the fever swamps are completed, it's time to get cooking for the family.
I enter the kitchen and grab the coconut oil-coated, cast iron skillet from the overhead rack and begin heating it up on the stove top, and begin to prepare my planned breakfast for the day: uncured, free range pastured pork bacon; free range, grass fed all-beef keilbasa sausages; and fritata made from eggs, crimini mushrooms, hawaiian sweet onions and peppers, kerrygold grass-fed dairy butter, and then topped with Muenster and Asiago cheese and fresh ground pepper and hawaiian red-clay sea salt.
While the pan is heating up, I quickly head outside to throw some non-GMO, organic scratch to my chickens and check the egg box for the day's batch of fresh-laid eggs.
Once breakfast is complete, and I'm sufficiently fueled up for the days labor, I pack a cooler of glass-bottled water, some tin cans of coconut water and my pau hana micro-brew, and head outside to do the days planned projects. For even though I have a day off, country life out in the Hawaiian boondocks is one that always has some work that needs doing. Boredom and sloth is not an option...but I wouldn't have it any other way.
For most of us, we have a morning routine. This is mine, with the only difference being on a scheduled work day, it all takes place before the sun rises, so that I have time to commute through traffic hell to earn my share of usurious fiat company store scripts to keep my family fed, sheltered and to also pay my tolls and tariffs to our Babylon System's overlords.
While it is a routine, it wasn't always so, and when I used to live in upscale suburbia and lived my professional life as a desk jockey in the cubicle farms of encorporea, my routine was a much different affair with a much different mentality ascribed to it.
But rather than bore you with another listing of my old routine for comparison to my current one, here's a list of reasons why I came to this current routine, all thanks to my years of study at the University of the Autodidact:
* Arise with the sun to harmonize my Circadian Rhythm and get better sleep
* I use a flip phone to limit surveillance activity by our Brave New World Order's digital-driven Panopticon
* Cold water shower for benefits of thermogenic therapy on tired and sore muscles
* Avoiding fluoride ingestion from most common brands of toothpaste
* Avoiding aluminum silicate and other substances found in most common deodorants and anti-perspirants
* I stockpiled cases of incandescent bulbs when it was announced that they would be discontinued in favor of those mercury-laden, harmful-spectrum UV emmitting Compact Fluorescent Lights.
* Since coffee is some of the most pesticide dependent crops in the world, I pay extra for high quality, certified organic fresh roast.
* I threw out all of my toxic, teflon-coated aluminium cookware and now use onlyl cast iron, ceramic and stainless steel cookware.
* All my dairy, eggs and meats are sourced from as much grass fed/free range/minimally processed foods as possible, while all the oils and fats used in cooking are saturated and abundant in fat soluble nutrients.
* I pack my drinking water in old glass whiskey bottles, as I try to avoid drinking plastic BPA-tainted bottles.
* Coconut water is THE ELIXIR OF THE GODS. When you sweat, your body excretes many trace vitamins and minerals that are vital for optimal function. Sports drinks simply replenish the water, sugar and sodium...along with giving you a dosage of a bunch of other synthetic, laboratory derived additives and ingredients like bright colors and calorie free sweeteners. Coconut water replenishes all that plus a whole host of other nutrients you lose from sweating - like magnesium, potassium, manganese, copper, etc. In the time before I discovered coconut water, I just don't know how I made it through another day of physical labor under the hot Hawaiian sun and humid climate.
Anyhow, the point here is that my daily routine is quite deliberate and there was initially a lot of thought behind every task I do. And this is just a small part of how I ended up figuring out what processes I needed to run and what processes I needed to delete, to ensure the best possible operation of my system in a world full of toxins and poisons designed to sap our will, destroy our health and render us enslaved to the programs THEY have designed for us.
As I've noted before, this is what it means to me to incorporate that which I have learned and distilled from all this time reading and writing on teh Interwebz: "Seek the truth. When you find it, order your life accordingly. This is the only path to
emancipation from the systemic enslavement of our Brave New World Order."
