I'd like someday soon to live in an eco-villages that is new and beginning to grow.
I enjoy my time in nature and feel best when I eat fresh unprocessed food. I've always wanted to live in a natural or rural setting, and only more recently wanted to do this in a village type set up. I was inspired after reading the Ringing Cedars of Russia books, which after having my own peculiar spiritual journey it resonated quite strongly with me. I can't say I agreed with it all, but the idea of a 'Kin Domain'; a self sufficient mini eco system that takes care of itself and provides much (all?) of the dietary needs, that is also where the family home is located and is passed on to the next generation is about the best thing I'd heard of. I'd like to live somewhere with a strong 'if I take care of you you'll take care of me' philosophy, rather than everything to be on exchange or bought and sold. I recognise that this is a bit of an ideal, as it takes everyone to allow others to be who they are, and for everyone to apply this before it works.
I'm a strong believer that by working with nature, nature will take care of us, and so the work involved, although it would be high when setting up a village and planting kin domains, after a few years the amount of daily work would be quite alot lower. I can't say the way I'm living now is a shining light of environmentalism or any spiritual way to live. I do live in a lovely part of the world which affords me the privilege of spending time in some very beautiful nature.
When I eventually have a family I'd like to have the time and energy to be available for my children, to be a father, a guide and a teacher for them. I'd like them eat a healthy natural diet, be active and free thinking, and to have a community around them so there are other children and many activities for them to participate in.
Having organised the creation of this site (which a large portion i've written, modified and 'cut/paste' programmed myself, I feel quite a good in myself. I realise there are still holes, errors and lots of incompleteness, which I'll get around to cleaning up. Hope you all enjoy and best wishes. I hope for those interested, this site will open doors to a more desirable future.
Although the longer term dream is for something the size of a village (eg. 150 lots, shop, school and so fourth in the village) for the more immediate future to find myself on the land an a community of whatever size, just so long as I could know that i'll be settled there long enough to see enjoy the benefits of my input. I'd like a bit of a blend between the 'private lot' and the communal spaces.
