Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

Fair enough.

For some reason I've wanted to review what may be the main points of a book on goal-free living:
  • Use a compass, not a map—have a sense of direction, and then let yourself wander and try new things on the way to fulfilling your
    aspirations
  • Trust that you are never lost—every seemingly wrong turn is an opportunity to learn and experience new things
  • Remember that opportunity knocks often, but sometimes softly—while blindly pursuing our goals, we often miss unexpected and wonderful
    possibilities
  • Want what you have—measure your life by your own yardstick and appreciate who you are, what you do, and what you have . . . now
  • Seek out adventure
  • Become a people magnet—constantly seek, build, and nurture relationships with new people so that you always have the support and
    camaraderie of others
  • Embrace your limits
  • Remain detached—focus on the present, act with a commitment to the future, and avoid worrying about how things will turn out
Quite honestly I resist planning that far ahead-- my main goals at the moment are to spend more time walking with others in the wilderness who are focused on personal & community growth. But over time I'm not sure how my focus will change.

The direction I point myself to and hope to be in in 10 years is:
  • continued and improved health & joy at being in the body
That seems to be number one. Without health & joy @ being in the body, what is life?
  • continued and improved sense that I am doing meaningful work and play--the sense that my time here is contributing to others' lives in some way. . .
  • continued sense of adventure, wonder, and amazement--looking back on the week, month, year, decade, I am amazed at what has happened in such a short time. . . At the same time. . . I am a bit skeptical of continually seeking novelty. Some growth may involve being able to make finer distinctions and to appreciate finer details about a situation which previously may have appeared to me stagnant and unchanging.
  • continued and improved feelings of love, for life, self, others.
So how's that for a dynamic steering aim for the year 2020?

and as to what that has to do with a food crisis in Tokyo and how I might help with such a thing. . . not really sure.

Ha! If these are your guidelines then I can't see how you would not end up on the other end of a phone call from Alchemy! Welcome to the network!

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

Stinging Nettle

In this blog post I will focus on a plant that is abundant in our nature, and which is immensely nutritious. It's of course the Stinging Nettle. Let's start with the chemical constituents of this plant:37 % Non-Nitrogen-Extracts19 - 29 % Ash9 - 21 % Fiber4 % Fat22 % ProteinOnce the leaves are drid, their protein content can reach an astounding 40 %, which is much higher than beef, which even under the best of circ***tances can never exceed 31 % protein. In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

Future

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.

Where I will be in ten years.

Ten years from now I will be in a political job assisting with people in the midlands of South Carolina particularly the rural working class and farmers. As the class of people that feed the nation I find that it is imperative that we assist with making sure they produce as much food as possible. I would like to support local scientists as well that are leading in research on how to produce food more efficiently. I will also be participating in missions to foreign countries to help people with…See More
