Where Zen Buddhism, Bus Conversions and Permaculture (Aquaponics) meet
The Great Mystery is we are so inter-connected even when we feel so far apart! We must first be grateful for the gift of our capacity for self-awareness--unique on the Earth and that humanity is evolving in consciousness towards balance, harmony and peace.
Does your brow wrinkle with the thought of how such diverse subjects that seem in-congruent can truly be related? Among others, Quantum physics, Aikido, Deep Ecology, Tao and Zen teach that all phenomena are inter-related, mutually inter-dependent, co-arising realities. It is our "modern" materialistic minds which disguise this truth. We believe, and practice that, in order to change our outer world, we must first change our inner world and the “Way” is only one way to the ultimate truth. It includes the Martial Arts, Buddhism and the Natural Sciences.
Y/our journey to wellness extends from self-care outwards. We "moderns" carry the delusion of being apart, individual, or separate from the natural world-wide "web" of life. Our egoic self is our "shadow self" --- underneath our awareness of which we are ignorant. It is the root of all suffering; from repressed fear, anger and greed. hat Inner Freedom Is Power." If you let go a little you will have a little happiness. If you let go a lot you will have a lot of happiness. If you let go completely you will be free." — Ajahn Chah. Let go of hate, lust etc for Jesus tells us to have Life we must learn to Love Everyone always...
Our MISSION MISSION ...
Many of our friends are dreamers too. We think it's time for us to realize we’re in the same storm and different boats and it helps if we paddled together. We believe healthy communities are built around good deeds, mutual respect, objectivity and respect can create a wave of positive energy. Aquaponics is an important piece important to the active support of Permaculture's 3 core values:
Care for our Earth, Care for People, and Share the Surplus in community (fair trade).
