Read his autobiography at the end of this book for more about the author.


Monxy, the Terra Sanctuarian Spiritual Leader, has lead a four decade life of relative solitude.  He has studied the ancient 中文 (Zhongwen or Chinese) (Daoist or Taoist) 易經 (Yi Jing or I Ching), the Book of Changes, for decades.  He has survived decades of megopolic life and escaped into the countryside.


He's been on dedicated meditation retreat for the past couple of decades and now he's reaching out to others to turn them on to their inner godselves.


Brought up as any latter 20th century kid, with the TV on for hours daily and microwave TV dinners.  Computer games from the mid-'80s for years.  He ate the occasional Big Mac and worked in an office.  He found enough sense in the early-'00s to altogether stop eating fast food.


He's like really far-out and he finds it funny sometimes comparing himself with an average citizen and seeing how much he's changed.  Check this out...  He first stopped watching TV in '92 when his life started getting more social (less watching and more doing).  He stopped going to the cinema in '02 and has seen only a few new movies per year since.  He stopped smoking, and drinking (the first time) in '03.  He listens to hardly any of the music of Society these days, having basically stopped around '03, though he now makes his own music.  He went organic in '06 and vegan in '08.  He hasn't cut any of his hair since '08.  He's quit cannabis more than once and even opioid painkillers.  In '17 he stopped alcohol.  For many years he didn't follow the news at all, now choosing to for security purposes because it's good to know.  He stopped working for others and started working for himself in '96.


Experienced from half a decade of psychotherapy he has seen his own programming.  He's visited deserts, mountains, forests and jungles over four continents and experienced 18 countries / states (and passed through another 8).  He's fit but he's been fat, he's been high (living in a New York penthouse and on a Europan mountain), he's been low (living below sea-level on a man-made island and on a couple of tropical islands), he's had 3+ bedrooms to himself and has been homeless, he lives on the outskirts of a small town of ten thousand in Alba (Scotland, UK, Europa) and has been East and West (but not yet South), he lives healthily but he's been an addict, he's been wealthy (chartering a helicopter night flight around the Statue of Liberty) and he's been poor (walking for three hours on a week-empty stomach to a soup kitchen), he's a Free Man now but he's been a slave, and a prisoner (for more than a year of his life).  He's socialized with millionaires but not billionaires, rested in a shanty town shack with pictures of the monarchy on the wall, shared a spliff with a friendly dealer in a $35 per month, concrete, 8 sqm (80 sq ft) room without plumbing and only intermittent electricity, housing the family of four in one of the poorest countries on our shared planet, been arrested by a SWAT team as a suspected terrorist, labeled criminal, illegal alien and insane and been forced to briefly mix with murderers, gangsters, thugs, burglars, thieves and other assorted criminals (often hard drug addicts).  Been approached by a couple of deadly snakes before they were beaten to death by locals, uncovered scorpions, sucked by ticks and leeches, had four operations, been high enough to leave physical reality behind for hours, ridden a pony, a sensibly reluctant camel and an elephant (all as a kid when far less aware).  Found and lost some jobs.  Found and lost some homes.  Found and lost a couple of lovers.  This is as may have happened when one achieves such a wise age =).  He's proud to be a rebel, almost grown out of being a foolhardy idealist and ever a steadfast libertarian.  A duty he's always felt is to provoke people into thinking freely.  He's said 'no' to Society and meant it, living a separatist life.  He's run his small business for two decades and it funds his retreatist life.


In parts of this book are our ideologies.  They may seem anti-social, rebelliously and subversively anti-establishment and by no means Politically Correct.  This is because Monxy's decided to, then taken the years to, think things out for himself rather than ignorantly allowing Society to give him his beliefs.  Although, of course, like everyone else Society's views were the ones he started off with.


Changing the world one mind at a time.  With the enduring principle about figuratively teaching fishing (to those who can then teach others to fish) he may one day feel that he's achieved good within Society in a way quintessentially unavailable via his computing business.
