    Why are you here?

    I am here to teach, to learn, to be, to offer yet another perspective on the "vision" of community that may resonate with others', to broaden the awareness of the community of which I am part. I am here because I Love (it).

    Any other personal information/resources/advice/ideas to share?

    An intellectual awakening is an important step for the individual. An awakening to awarness that is deeper than mental is an important component to awakening on a spiritual level. It appears to me that a common flaw in the perspective of the taker culture is to give more value to the intellect or mental process than is appropriate. My mind is a tool. I teach Tai Chi Chuan, offer instuction in meditation and awareness that is beyond what the mind can comprehend. I support a lifestyle that fosters the awakening of and communion with the soul. I am moving toward a shift in currancy from money to aloha. The "community" mindedness that is a recent sign of the evolution/disintegration of the taker culture is a move toward the integration of "family" (meaning every living thing). (Rocks and planets are alive too).It is an indication that a shift in consciousness is taking place within the members of taker society that is supporting and observing its collapse. The leaver peoples never forgot. Hawaiians call this ohana. Live with love. Death is life too. Spirit does not die. Here's to compost!
