GOLDEN AGE OF GAIA

As so-called intentional communities proliferate across the country, a subset of Americans is discovering the value of opting out of contemporary society.

East Wind is what its 72 residents call an intentional community, a modern descendant of the utopian colonies and communes of centuries past where individuals share everything from meals, chores and living space to work, income, domestic responsibilities and the burden of self-governance. The term intentional community dates to the late 1940s, when the Inter-Community Exchange — an organization formed in Yellow Springs, Ohio, in the wake of World War II to help promote peaceful, cooperative living arrangements (in the hope of eradicating war altogether) — changed its name to the Fellowship of Intentional Communities; the founders felt the new title better conveyed the deliberateness with which these groups were assembling. The members of East Wind, for example, range in age from infancy to 76: Some have lived here for more than three decades, but around half of the population is part of a new wave, people in their late 20s and early 30s who joined in the last four years. These newer residents moved to East Wind to wean themselves off fossil fuels, grow their own food, have a greater say in how their society is run and live in less precarious financial circumstances.

Dana Mrkich – Communities Creating the New Earth – 8-9-15

By Dana Mrkich, Thanks to the Galactic Free Press.

Mother Earth is astounding in what she looks like and offers us each day: beauty, oxygen, water, spectacular nature, and an environment that provides all we need to thrive. We don’t need a New Earth, just new eyes and new ways to take better care of this Earth.

As more of us do this, over time it will seem as if we are on a New Earth and this is what visionaries have foreseen for so long. Collectively we are in the midst of this process right now. This has been so apparent to us this trip by the huge changes we have seen in the availability of food choices compared to 5 years ago. Organic, non-gmo, gluten and dairy free options are everywhere!

As individuals shift, purchasing decisions change, the demand for healthy food suppliers increases, options expand.

Global change in this new era is a grassroots movement facilitated by each and every one of us.

Gandhi said it “Be the change you wish to see in the world.”

Are you feeling and experiencing a shift in your local world and community?
