It’s time. Time to build our tribe.
Since 2015, I’ve had a personal vision for a different kind of life.
Different for me, anyway. And I think there are other people out there who will want to get involved with this.
Imagine a place in a beautiful setting, surrounded by lush mountains, lakes, and forests.
The energy in the air is empowering and electric. You live in an open community with artists, free thinkers, innovators, psychonauts, and entrepreneurs who push for a synergistic paradigm in the place of capitalism.
You can come and go as you please. You can build your own niche community in another region, and then our tribe has more than one headquarters. We could build these all over the world.
We’ll grow our own food and trade from our gardens. We’ll contribute to the community with our own unique skills and passions.
We’ll conspire together, to make the entire world measurably better. Most importantly, we’ll be free to be ourselves and will raise our children in an environment that will never stifle their autonomous growth into self-realization.
I know there are some communities out there with overlapping ideals, but I do not know of any contacts I have within those groups. I am writing this so that anyone reading this can know my intention, and offer to participate, consult, or offer time and money in exchange for gratitude and building something wonderful.
This is important to me, and I’ve realized over and over and over again that I am not going to be satisfied settling for less than the best I can do in this world. This is the path to the life of my dreams, and I swear I can’t be the only one.
I understand the need to start small, build it piece-by-piece. I don’t expect it all to fall into place overnight, or even over the next five years. This is a project I’ll be building for the rest of my life.
And I don’t know exactly where to start, but to write these words.
To let anyone out there know that I am serious about coming together with others, combining resources, and building a life that works for us without sacrificing that which makes us who we are.
Satisfied with the status quo? Then this message is not for you. But if that’s the case, I can’t imagine you’ve read this far anyway.
