This morning was very interesting. After waking up earlier then normal, the house had a conversation “Sub-Rosa” and we were talking for quite some time. After this, it got me really thinking about what it is that we could be doing (as a community, regardless of how small it is) as group. What I find most important is that we all have strengths and talents that we can put on the table, but it is truly a matter of wanting to make that change happen.
Permaculture is not only about the environment, but also an incorporation of the human psyche as a part of that system/design.
Dear Reader, I believe that there is a lot of suffering in the world, and the fact that we are able to do something about it tells me a lot about humans. On one hand, there are those who are willing to destroy Nature in a perpetual manner, furthering a gap of desensitization. Houses are now coffins. And on the other hand, there is a whole underground network of information that is just hitting the surface coercing those who just discovered the subject.
If we are not aware of the persons or even plants and animals for that matter, that we choose to surround ourselves with, we might end up in a situation that is pretty uncomfortable. Knowing is half the battle as they say! By setting goals and learning how to incorporate oneself whilst taking into consideration all of the things/people around them we are able to encourage broader senses of community and active involvement with each other. This, to me, is one of the most important things about Permaculture.
