God Bless you, Wodraskas plural :-) ,
I wasn't going to have time to respond until later today; So glad to see you're here
Daniel they are saying what I meant, and I shall only add this observation of mine to it:
Those who are warlike and divisive will war themselves against each other to death, and will therefore not be here to inherit the Earth.
Meek does not equal weak nor defenseless by any means, and in fact takes great strength and self-discipline.
Also, thank you Poet, for putting your beautiful passion into that beautiful poem :-).
So Daniel- Here's a challenge for your fertile mind- How's about some Permaculture RAP??? Write the music and they will come...

Glad you are on the list , a little explanation of the word 'meek'. Like so many other words in the English language it has been co-opted and eclipsed. It does not mean the weak more to the point it means the gentle and the kind, the non violent communicators. My feeling is that it really does apply because when we work with the earth it is important to be gentle. Gaia has given so much and still does pour out unconditional love and my experience now is that we are living on the New Earth in so many ways. I know that there is all kinds of crap happening but we do not hear about the good news at all and there is lots of great work happening in quiet places.
Regarding the culture, the old culture which has never been our friend but with our work and love for our home we can put the culture back into agriculture, it is already happening in so many places.
If you are around money which in so many ways is a virtual reality then maybe start a little garden or commune with the trees as the spirits in the garden and in the community of beings surrounding every tree have stories to tell you and they might even ask for help.
If your own family cannot understand what you are trying to do know that you have a community of light wherever you are.

An articulator to help us explain this game and frame our work in a way that's not full of murk - or maybe not the work that we do, but the reason I listen to you, and you, and Lawrence - whose last posting to this discussion made me feel like crushin all the negativity that's been bothering me, as I read these feeds from the crevices of PC.
> Boomers!? Uh, thank you! An articulator not for you, or really for me anymore - but for kids and babies about to be washing onshore. More and more and more all the time asking with no answers to help them see out some grime.
