I'm trying to find the balance of traveling and maintaining community. I'm a minimalist, everything i own is in my backpack. I just returned from WWOOFing (world wide organic opportunity farms) in Papaikou, Hawaii. I'm looking to be more involved in the Sarasota community, especially in helping start community gardens. I'm looking for friendship and possibly more.
I love living in the garden. I mean that both metaphorically and physically. The garden I step into in the morning is never the same garden i stepped into the previous day. Neither am I the same person today as I was yesterday. Things might look the same, but the microbial and spiritual aspects are forever evolving and growing, dieing and being reborn again.
I have so many ideas on how I think things should be. And because of this, I am actively involved in life. But if I let these ideas rule me, it will be near impossible to slow down and smell the passionfruit or watch the carpenter bees drill holes in the rotten logs along the garden path. It is so easy to get wrapped up in projects/work and miss the beauty of this world. So I make it a point to take one step at a time. Pace myself. Breath steadily, and take into account that there are few immediate decisions.
My current life changing revelations:
• Conflict resolution starts in my own heart.
• Love is unconditional and outweighs everything.
• Life is but a breath.
• Solitude is soulfood.
• Happiness comes from a thankful and listening heart.
• Living in community is the only answer to true vulnerability and relationship.
