falling off the earth

Picture 1

Well, you just might have been wondering if we had dropped off the face of the earth…it’s been more than 3 months since our last post!! It’s been so long that I had to check our blog just to see what I had written last time I posted. It’s interesting to see that I was talking a lot about the ways we were falling out of touch with the world – how this in many ways has been the whole point of our adventure. And then bang! We dropped right off the planet! Nothing like going deeply into a process! And I have to say, I can highly recommend it.

people’s reactions

Hi friends,

One of the fascinating aspects of this journey has been people’s many and varied reactions to the changes we are planning to make.

easy progress

It is vital not to have discord, otherwise good fortune will simply dissipate immediately, turning to misfortune. The image here is of the sun rising and bringing with it the bright light that transforms the earth into a magnificent place. There is a purity in the morning light and it reflects humankind’s intrinsic goodness.

A post about…



It’s Thursday night. Farming was yesterday and I have just finished a day in my Psychology practice. It’s 9pm. Rachel has gone off to meditate and I am here writing. I started to write last night when I came home and then the computer froze so I lost everything I had written. They were just notes, and somehow it felt okay. It caused me to reflect on what I might need or want to write instead. I didn’t come up with anything and fell asleep.
