Many thanks to those readers who have stayed in touch with me and continued to follow my blog as my wife and I continue packing for our move to a location in the Southern Appalachian mountains.

Lately our reading has included many interesting topics. We are currently studying The Complete Dead Sea Scrolls in English (Penguin, 2004) and finding it a deeply inspiring source of wisdom. We have been researching the Essenes, who some say wrote the Dead Sea Scrolls. Also of great interest and importance are the translations of Essene wisdom by Edmond Bordeaux Szekely which we encountered through our Australian friend Omna Last.

Along the same lines, we have recently been in touch with the Essene school of Olivier Manitara in Quebec and are studying their publications. We are also planning our organic garden with the help of writers like Ruth Stout, who wrote on the “no-work” method of mulch gardening that has inspired so many green-thumbers. Other topics are alternative energy and local currencies. We would like to build a methane gas system with an electrical generator at our new home and wonder if others have had success doing this.

Of course it’s always fascinating to follow the news on the internet on the continuing world economic crisis and the march of the Anglo-American-Zionist empire to even more war and exploitation around the world. Lately we note that the U.S. State Department is planning to build a $1 billion embassy in London, its most expensive project ever, to be surrounded by a gigantic moat!

But personally we’ve gotten a little tired of shaking in our shoes over a future no one can really predict. So we are trying to take control of our lives and create something new and really light-filled and positive for ourselves and those around us. We urge everyone else to do the same. The time to act is now.

Ruth Stout’s Garden

krlany on Jan 21, 2013

Famous gardener Ruth Stout shows her coveted secrets, and interesting stories of her life. Having never followed society’s conformities, her gardening techniques are likewise very unique. Quite possibly the simplest way to garden, with no digging, composting, tilling or fertilizing. A video both entertaining and informative.
