Coming to you from rom Costa Rica...
As I stepped on a plane to leave The USA for a while I felt very sad. I found myself crying on and off for most of the flight to Costa Rica. I realized that my desire to do something new and different in a new country is a big step. I really struggle each day while I am participating in the war machine. However I truly love the people in my tribe. I truly love my neighbors in the USA.
My life is leading me into a new direction, one of planting seeds. Both in the ground and in peoples hearts. Many people I am meeting want to chat about why I left. As I try to explain I feel the need to not be negative about things. Their are so many reasons I am here but I am trying to talk and walk into light, not away from darkness.
I just started reading a new book by Thich Nhat Hanh called Creating True Peace: Ending Violence in Yourself, Your Family, Your Community and the World. I hope you find time to read it. He says both negative and positive feelings are just seeds planted deep in our hearts. What I feel for me is that the culture in the USA was watering and tending to the negative seeds. The weeds can overtake the fruit trees when they get all of the water.
The world is a small place and I know that each person must find how they can make it more peaceful. All I ask of anyone is to try and create peace, right now and every minute from now on. I have been blown away daily at how manifestation works in my life. After Burningman this year my tribe put ourselves into action. This eco farm and reforesting project has been molded from dreams. All you have to do is start doing what you have a passion for and things will come out good.
