2017, I concentrated long and hard on growing, I dug dirt, planted seeds of intention and tended my garden. I thought about everything in triplicate, I meditated for long periods of time and listened to countless hours of esoteric ancient teachings. I spent time alone in the forest for weeks at a time even. My life I thought I had been doing, but I was thinking about doing. I dug a lot and reaped little of substance from my garden, but it was in the not doing that I grew, it was only in the not doing.
In the not doing I found love for myself, with every shovel full of dirt, and love for the earth with every plant I watched grow.
I took time for myself, a lot of time walking in silence, thinking and forgiving myself and healing my past. I felt like I should have been doing something else, but I didn't. I could lose my thoughts in the forest. I became thoughtless, and mindful even though I didn’t realize it at the time, I found peace in the forest. (and win win - I also lost 30 lbs and a lot of baggage)
Some of those close to me have been a little concerned, spending too much time alone, studying Hermeticism and peace within, embracing far reaching concepts of god or god like and Christ consciousness.
I have said the words many times in the past that I do not believe in God, and I still don’t believe in the god as preached in dogma, we are all really god, primordial soup.
We cannot wish for Peace – we must become Peace.
Much love to all of my friends and family and my wish is that we all find our own Peace in what ever way it manifests, no labels, it just is.
Blessed Be, Merry Meet, Merry Part, Merry Meet Again.
