Where the Wild Things Are…

The evening is grey and still.

Rain has been spluttering out of the heavens all day.

I’ve just been for a short walk outside and made a 5 minute video that is, at present, loading.

This process takes about an hour and sometimes cuts out at  the last minute, meaning it has to start once more from the beginning, so it can be frustrating!

However, the feedback I get from viewers encourages me to keep it all going…that and a sense of getting a real message out about permaculture.

 What the Banks and EU Agricultural Policy Failed to do, Permaculture manages…this is how I see it all at present.

All around me, here in Ireland and beyond, people are realizing just how much they have lost, been short-changed on what life is really all about…

 The endless drive for material wealth and property has been such over the past decades that many have lost sight of the real meaning of existence on this beautiful planet.

Integrity and goodness have been demeaned and mocked, as the elite, in their eternal scavenging for wealth,    have poured foul scorn upon the planet and it’s inhabitants.

Well, here’s the news…permaculture does not require you to have money, spend money or accumulate wealth.

Permaculture is about using what is to hand and recycling and being creative.

By practising permaculture I pour foul scorn upon the destroyers of Nature, creating a portal, here at Bealtaine Cottage, through which her abundant and infinite energies flow.

People are waking up to the fact that their governments have sold them out to the banks and corporations and it is time to turn towards a kinder way of living on this sacred planet. I heartily recommend adopting the permaculture ethics…

Honouring Gaia, a Simple, Spiritual Philosophy.

 A misty morning at Bealtaine Cottage.

The very beauty of this  morning defies one not to honour the Earth, honour Gaia.

This is an important part of living with and on Gaia.

We have a co-dependent “Web of Life” that includes all physical forms of existence from plants to humans.

Gaia is Earth’s authentic name as “She” is therefore personalized in order for us as humans to have a better relationship with Her.

Each morning I choose to endeavour to reduce my human impact on Gaia, by  being mindful of my actions and moderate with natural resources.

Be Respectful of Life in All Its Forms.

Bealtaine Cottage Permaculture

As a practising Gaian, becoming a vegetarian was a natural response to the growing environmental concerns and a way of living lightly on the Earth.

Being respectful and courteous not only of human life, but also animal and to an extent plant life, is part of a growing philosophy that heightens spiritual awareness and connectivity.

Aspiring towards a Vegan way of life is my everyday challenge and centres me onto Gaia.

 Gaianism is a simple spiritual philosophy.

It helps us all to understand the unity of the universe that binds us all and encourages environmental awareness.

The Gaia Movement is an international network of individuals and groups that share a concern for living more sustainably on the Earth.
