How does it look, your ideal community for experiencing an alternative future?
My version is for those who do not belong to the money system and choose to live creatively and from the heart. I am prepared to live in such a community or help create one, and am open to any location. Contacts are appreciated.
The ideal I hold is people of diverse perspectives, interests and skills — and compatible values — living a conscious, light footprint lifestyle that is naturally caring, sharing, earth-friendly, creative and sustainable in a model village or community designed to accommodate visitors and guests so many can experience an alternative future.
I am drawn to be the most universal and inclusive of which I am capable, with neutrality and unconditional love, and to live in awareness of the immense beauty and intelligence which underlies everything.
About not belonging to the money system, author Robert Sohn writes from his perspective of 'Tao and T'ai Chi Kung',
'If an aspirant of Eternal Truth has conquered his worldly nature by subduing and conquering the passion and desire of life, and has focused his being through development of body, mind and emotions, thereby coming into the state of harmony in all his centers, he has attained the state of desirelessness. Such a being can comprehend the true reality that is obscured by the world of illusion produced by the continuation of desire.
'As long as objects draw the attention, as long as man's desire is not controlled, just so long will one see the manifest material universe as opposed to its underlying real source. This is not, as many like to think, a statement about morality and right behavior. It is about dissolution of any emotional bindings to the world of man's experience and refocusing attention on the incorporeal world.
'.... In sum, from within the Wu Chi, the ultimate Reality, there manifests li, ideation. From the idea, there is ch'i, the will to manifestation. From that will, there manifests Qi, existence, substance, matter, energy, form.'
