So, it’s fall and although I’m still doing light gardening and crafting canned products it’s time to pick back up the needles! This piece is hand crocheted by me and is available for order in your favorite color(s). Just email … Continue reading →
A friend asked: “if I default on all my debtors now..what becomes of my family while I establish the resources to create something else?”
My reply: Everyday more and more people have to answer that question in real time. If it’s not a surprise lay-off, people could establish networks to get their REAL needs met first. Even without surprise lay-offs, technology is replacing human labor and people are still pretending like $$ should still be what determines if some someone eats, where they live, how they die, their quality of life, food, education and health etc. This causes unnecessary suffering when we can use what we have to create enough for all. I advocate mass default on banks. And unlike movements before each individual must decide for themselves the day and moment they are brave enough to say, not today and not ever again! There will be no one leader that can be assassinated, out-lived, defamed or idolized leading the way. Default on banks and invest in people by feeding, house, clothing and educating your people! Will farmers let their cattle go and fruit rot on the vine when no one has $$ to pay for it? Will musicians stop singing and plying if people can’t exchange $$ for it? Will we all die with our innate gifts and talents inside when there’s no $$ to justify our existence. We don’t have to do it that way. But it’s up to the individual to decide how it will play out.
This quote what I found doing research on spinning cotton! Apparently Gandhi promoted a contest to create a book sized fiber spinning wheel called a Charkha. It was part of his self-reliance initiative!
“Take to spinning to find peace of mind. The music of the wheel will be as balm to our soul. I believe that the yarn we spin is capable of mending the broken warp and woof of our life. The charkha (spinning wheel) is the symbol for nonviolence on which all life, if it is to be real life, must be based.”
I used to be really money motivated… Then I realize that it’s merely a tool to access what I really want. You can’t eat it, fuck it or cover your body with it however, I can do all that and … Continue reading →

When growing tomatoes it’s imperative to production quality and quantity that you prune the “suckers” (look like mini tomato plants grow at a 45 degree angle of the leaves). When we harvested right before the first Autumn frost I clipped … Continue reading →

Have you ever been rejected when attempting to warn a loved one of KNOWN disasters to come? Have you ever rejected a loved ones warning and regretted it? What can be done/said differently that would have caused you to take heed?
Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.
We take things personally when we agree with what others have said. If we didn’t agree, the things that others say would not affect us emotionally. If we did not care about what others think about us, their words or behavior could not affect us.
Even if someone yells at you, gossips about you, harms you or yours, it still is not about you! Their actions and words are based on what they believe in their personal dream.
Our personal “Book of Law” and belief system makes us feel safe. When people have beliefs that are different from our own, we get scared, defend ourselves, and impose our point of view on others. If someone gets angry with us it is because our belief system is challenging their belief system and they get scared. They need to defend their point of view. Why become angry, create conflict, and expend energy arguing when you are aware of this?
I was just about to run out the door to one of the best food markets in the Matrix without having breakfast…. Then sis pulls up with the prawns and bacon and insists I have breakfast with her. That ended … Continue reading →

When people say adverse things about [insert man-made label] that YOU have falsely accepted as you personal identify it’s easy to get offended or feel you must defend people, places and things. It seems we have two options… 1. Attempt … Continue reading →

Why I don’t believe in “belief”: Belief doesn’t seem to allow for change and evolution. To believe is to close the heart to further consider ideas because you’ve already got the answers that you accept as the only possibility. The … Continue reading →
