I, the Land

Since there are reoccurring discussions and questions on ‘my way of living’ - which I find quite understandable, for it might differ quite a bit from usual ways of doing and looking at things - I would like to share a bit of an outline.

I will try to keep it simple and would have to say that this 'way' occurred naturally, emerging through lifes' challenges and inquiries. Thus, surely it might change form, however I would argue that its center will not change.

The points mentioned below, as well as the fact of not having the financial means to get and secure access to land in order to provide for some food and shelter, result in a sort of semi-nomadic lifestyle for now.

In general, I sense that as a human being I live and work not for myself, but as part of all what we call nature, thus I contribute to nature as a whole.

In other words, I am aware that every action I perform, influences and is influenced by everything.

Even simpler: I am in everything and everything is in me.

Concerning life in all its perceived diversity there is a sensation of kinship, paired with a sense of wonderment.

With that, naturally, comes a sensation of wanting to protect, to foster and serve.
To sense that my activity exploits is not bearable for a long time.

However, I surely would not want to encourage any certain manner of living, other then to follow your heart.

Ultimately, I would like to express my sincere and deep gratitude for the support, help and openness I have met on the way. As I often mentioned, if you could meet each other...what a beautiful gathering it would be.
