I live barefooted and naked, very close to Earth and Nature, in an 18-acre, off-grid, clothing-optional, food-forest intentional community (GaiaYoga Gardens), way out in the jungles of Lower Puna, far East Big Island, Hawai'i. I love my life, and I'm immensely grateful to live where and how I do, on my own terms! I would not want to live any other way! 😁🙏💚⚡💥🔥✴️✳️❇️👣🌱✨🤙
Warm greetings all! 😁🙏💚✨🤙
What is wealth? To me wealth is so much more than simply having the financial resources availble to do what we'd like and need. Wealth is also abundant and overflowing health and vitality, alignment with passion and purpose, meaningful and nourishing human connections and relationships, self expression and actualization, as well as the power and freedom of self-determination and sovereignty. Hive to me is a context and framework for building true multifaceted, multidimensional, integral wealth, across many domains.
Finances are probably the most outwardly obvious aspect of wealth here on Hive, as it is easily possible to generate many diverse and complementary income streams, and that only grows the longer we're here, because the more we have, the faster we grow. This is what usually draws people here, and while it is a very valid and important part of what Hive is, it is really only one facet of this exquisite gem of a Blockchain.
Most Hivers/Hivians would agree that the dear human interactions, connections, and relationships that we have here are truly priceless, and to not see that as a significant part of the wealth that we create here would be short-sighted indeed. Some of these relationships will last a lifetime, and many move even outside of the context of Hive itself, into our daily life.
Hive is indeed an excellent open and free domain where we are able to share our personal expression and actualization, our challenges, our learning and growth, our creativity, our deepest passions and purpose, and where we are rewarded for being our real, authentic, genuine selves. We can speak freely here, without fear of censorship, or having our accounts deleted. Hive is human-centric, and supports and nurtures the beautiful humans that we are. That is wealth of the highest order, and it's the core of what Hive is.
Hive is indeed wealth building, and in many contexts and domains, and all it requires of us is that we show up here regularly, be our authentic selves, and share our unique beauty and magic! That sounds pretty great to me! This is one of the many reasons why I am so passionately all in for the long haul here on this incredible Blockchain! You and me, dear friends, are the heart of the wealth that we create here! Let us share it far and wide!
Saturday was another lovely jungle day, with much of the early and later part of it devoted to Hive, as is my usual. Like the day before, my usual schedule got altered slightly again, as I ended up helping Scott, and older fellow who used to live here, and who is staying with us again for two weeks, to resolve the connectivity problems on his phone. Thankfully we were able to get everything working again as it should. After I finished helping him, I returned to my Hive catch-up and tasks, which I was able to get to a reasonable pause point just before 4PM, which is when I left the Flow House to focus my attention on some land work. It got rather cloudy later in the day, so not the best for photos, but as I walked around taking photos for this post, I did the best I could with what I had.
After taking photos, I chopped an older coconut for my superfood fire coffee in the mornings, collected Melochia leaves for the composting toilet near the Landing, and I put some time and energy into doing dishes and cleaning in the Landing. After that I strained out kefir for my kefir-honey-cinnamon-cacao blend, then I did a little bodywork on Ano, at his request.
Once all my work was done for the day, I made myself some food, got food for my kitten friend, and returned to the Flow House, to begin my evening round of Hive catch-up and tasks, which I was able to finish quite early again, which gave me more time to read and explore more. I went to bed pretty early, around 10:30PM, and I slept well until about 8:30AM, a bit later than usual, and I woke up feeling good.
Today is a beautiful, warm, and breezy Sunday, and it's approaching 1:30PM, so it's a good time to end this post for now, so that I can get to my afternoon round of Hive catch-up and tasks. Being Sunday, I have my huge Sunday Weekly Hive Goals and Progress Update to compile and write later. I'm going to try to get some land work in, too, in the late afternoon. I deeply appreciate you all! Until that poet tonight, and the next incarnation of this post tomorrow! Onward and upward, joyfully together! 😁🙏💚✨🤙
All photos were taken with my Motorola G Power Android Phone.
Thank you all so much who have helped me get to where I am today, and allowing me to share more of the beauty and magic from my life and my world with you, and for your continuous appreciation and support! I am truly deeply grateful! 😁🙏💚
