A new way of life.
A personal post from my home forum, http://www.psychonaut.com
I feel what im about to share must be heard, and I highly encourage everyone to take the time to read it fully, and with an open mind.
I planned on waiting to have a solid final draft compiled before posting this, but with what ive got going on legally right now, i feel that it might be now or never.
"I often feel out of sync with my surroundings, when i meditate in the yard. I can feel everything around me, but i feel alien to the whole thing. Like im not contributing to the show around me. Ive planted some plants, and done other things to benifit the nature and my surroundings, but i still get that feeling. Like its too small scale.
I want to live somewhere where i can immerse myself in the cycle of natural life, and still have some of the nessessities of modern living. Free of the shackles of society, and in sync with the planet around us. This lifestyle would be difficult at best on your own. For this reason I know that it would need a group of people working towards the cause. A tribe of sorts, I guess. Just as humans have done for ages. If the right people, with the right motivation work together, we can work towards creating a new lifestyle free of currency, government influenced media, and the negitivaty of depleting the planet around us. We can create a life rich in freedom to live love and coexsist harmoniously. Us humans have to figure something diffrent out, because were really throwing things out of whack, and creating alot of problems(for ourself, and our surroundings). This would not only be for the benifit of the things around us, but for the benifit of man kind as a whole, and how we treat eachother. You see, for a place like this to be created, we must learn ways to live other than war, greed, and distruction. These ways would be much better suited for humans, and the planet that we so delicatly inhabit.
If even only a single person gains new knowledge in this day and age, it dosnt take long for much of humanity to gain that same knowledge thereafter, due to improvments in communications in the past few decades. We are gaining knowledge as a whole at alarming rates compaired to in the olden days. Its for this reason that I theorize that with the right chain of events, and the right motivation, much of humanity could learn this new way as a lifestyle(as they seem to change ever so often) eventually.
Ive always dreamed of a community where currency diddnt exsist, where inhabitants all worked together, and shared everything – like many tribes. There would be diffrent rolls, people who farm, build, and teach ect.. If the members are experienced in something benificial, usefull, and/or interesting, that would be their job, and they would offer lessions to all those interested and vise versa. With the right people living in this community teaching their knowledge, the result would be an edjucation of cold hard skills, and not just answers on a piece of paper with little real life value as alot of edjucation seems to provide.
From a longer term point of view, if done correctly, the result would be a self sustained community full of highly skilled individuals, with likly a better view on living in love and harmony, rather than greed and envy. And as mentioned above, maybe others will catch on from there? I think its plausable.
Maybe changing the world is a bit far fetched, but everything starts somewhere. At the very least, maybe afew like minded individuals could create there own personal paradice and live a life that makes them truly happy and in sync with eachother and the planet we inhabit."
How many of you does this sound appealing to?
Have you felt angry lately about the way things are? I know i am. This just seems to be the best solution i can think of.
Comments? Tips? Opinions?
Where do you live? You should look into communal living in your area – or perhaps elsewhere, if you are willing to travel.
Florida. And im willing to walk/hike/camp anywhere within the US border.
This place looked cool to me. It’s the only eco-village like that I’ve found. I’ve never been, and I don’t know anyone who lives there, but I wanted to check it out…
Doesn’t it just look incredible?
If earth ships were built in a dancing rabbit format of community on a large scale, it would eliminate so many huge problems in our society. Its shocking how much bullshit these people are put through! the legal system is against self sustainability.
Its such a shame. Hopefully this catches on for our futures sake.
Good luck with the law man..
Im down for this ecovillage. I know quite a nice spot to start one off, but cant really get into it for a few years at least..
Im making it a goal to go see this dancing rabbit place and feel out its members.
Heres his story:
I would really just like to start my own. Tis such a dauting task though. Especally with such limited resources.
But thanks to HE, im learning to deal with problems like that ;)
Ya im broke. I was going to walk there.
hey, these thoughts hit very (very) close to home. though i am young and relatively inexperienced in the world, may i offer my humble contribution to the knowledge pool?
here’s a quote from Deloria to get us started, actually:
–>> we create our own reality and we are absolutely free to do so.
This condition, however, suggests that there is no reality and that we live in a completely intellectual world where the free choice of the individual determines the values and emotional content of experiences.”
in essence: BEWARE of turning to the land without considering that this entails a radical disconnection with notions of historicity and teleology
