A Manifesting Vision

Today, we chatted with board members of Friends of Santa Cruz about all of the potential opportunity to expand projects at the Castro Adobe. We expressed to them that we wanted to work with their vision of further preserving and demonstrating the cultural history of the site as well as the environment for the common good of all. While introducing projects and principals of permaculture, the collective consciousness within the community will grow and sustainable practices will gain traction in generations to come.

In response, they openly filled us in on their ongoing projects for 2018. Amongst those projects are the expansion of a raised bed garden, rainwater harvesting, permeable driveway, solar power, yard and kitchen waste composting, plant seed collecting, drip irrigation expansion, and composting toilets. In coordination with the building of these projects, Friends of Santa Cruz was also interested to open the projects to volunteer efforts and those who wish to learn about the building process as well as the principals being exercised. We explored existing connections to work with volunteer high school students on behalf of this idea.

We are very excited that this dream of collaboration is coming to fruition and infinitely grateful for the support of those involved. Let there be light!

 

Driven by the Flow of Happiness

Communities for Sustainable Monterey County

Today at The Peace and Justice Center in Seaside, CA, activists in the local community gathered to present accomplishments and connect with others in an effort to collaborate while facilitating positive change within local communities. At this meeting, the potential to develop available local land by implementing permaculture and healing projects was explored. These opportunities are currently being pursued!

 

Flow State Operation

Flow state operation: The indescribable joy of being in sync with the momentum of limitlessness. Where passion and action come together, we break free and are invited to experience the magic of doing what we love. It matters less what others may be saying. Dare to dream differently, because we may not solve problems with the same thinking we used to create them*

Humbled, yet Inspired

Humbled by what there is to discover, yet inspired for greatness and love. When we explore the Invisibles that hold life together, we hop on a freight train of positivity and see that the best things in life, are not things. Every day, we can look for the excitement of what might happen in the field of all possibilities. It’s all about vibration, and we are here to ride the light ✨

Devils Tower Speaks

Wisdom may come your way if you listen to the urge to explore. “Devils Tower” or “Bear Lodge” as it was known to the Native American cultures, is more than just a geological marvel. Early this autumn morning while perched on the face of the rock, I meditate. I seek to inquire about what the meaning and purpose of this magnificent formation is from earth. While tuning into the energies of its nature, the rock gifted me an overwhelming sensation of home, love, and grounded security. There is a notion of respect and a feeling palpable through my spine that speaks to the union of all beings. Upon opening my eyes I could see birds and antelope far off in the distance and intuitively knew that they felt the same energy from the rock on one level or another. My experience of union with the universe was powerful, and would surely carry on as a lesson from earth not to be forgotten. But why had Gaia created this rock? From the ancient magma that formed many millions of years ago, the clear message of unity that I received spoke to a reason of love and balance in life. It was there to heal inevitable malicious intent. Just like there cannot be a front without a back, there cannot be love without evil. This Tower of rock emanated uniting frequencies to combat ego driven forces that seek to disconnect consciousness from its source. I cannot help but to now become more curious about what else Mother Earth has grown as sources of this healing energy. In the end, I crawled down the steep boulder field at the base of the rock face, and walked away happy.

Along the Way

Parked in a field, amongst the scurry of Walmart and torrential thunderstorms, I find happiness. Today seems like a good day to stay mellow after yesterday’s adventures. A leaky roof, some good literature, and a wandering fly keep me company inside my caravan. The weather is dictating the mood; spooky, yet mystical. A coal train passes by, symbolic of my will to keep on. Although unlike the train who’s rails prescribe a path, my journey meanders through a field of unpredictability. Everything I have is pointed toward the land of the stranger. My soul searches to answer questions about our world, and what it means to be human. Throughout this journey, the peaks and valleys of my energy ride waves of intuitive feelings. With each oscillation an overarching moral of presence begins to uncover itself, while each answer I find seems to prompt more questions. What else is there to find along the way?
