Go placidly amid the noise and the haste,

and remember what peace there may be in silence.

As far as possible, without surrender,

be on good terms with all persons.

Speak your truth quietly and clearly;

and listen to others,

even to the dull and the ignorant;

they too have their story.

Avoid loud and aggressive persons;

they are vexatious to the spirit.

If you compare yourself with others,

you may become vain or bitter,

for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.

Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.

Keep interested in your own career, however humble;

it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.

Exercise caution in your business affairs,

for the world is full of trickery.

But let this not blind you to what virtue there is;

many persons strive for high ideals,

and everywhere life is full of heroism.

Be yourself. Especially do not feign affection.

Neither be cynical about love,

for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment,

it is as perennial as the grass.

Take kindly the counsel of the years,

gracefully surrendering the things of youth.

Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.

But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.

Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.

Beyond a wholesome discipline,

be gentle with yourself.

You are a child of the universe

no less than the trees and the stars;

you have a right to be here.

And whether or not it is clear to you,

no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God,

whatever you conceive Him to be.

And whatever your labors and aspirations,

in the noisy confusion of life,

keep peace in your soul.

With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams,

it is still a beautiful world.

Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.

hi guys,
ok, i love the time you are putting into this...very excellent points lola on hidden resentments etc. . . i know one thing i have done for many years with my sons; "we are going to talk about this outloud and right now." this is a method not without fault. sure someone may need to bring it up again, and that is fine, changing peoples minds about an inbedded belief system can happen. for instance, many people think "agruments" are a negative thing, not. this can be a productive method of communicating in an intelligent way. just a thought i wanted to throw out there.
as for having guidelines, i feel you would have to have them in order to keep everyone feeling equal. i agree with brother rob on doing research on others who have already been there and doing it! when i say keeping everyone feeling equal, meaning everyone has to do their share of work...period. some of us older ones may not be able to do as much physical things as we used to be capable of doing, but, *this is where the rubber meets the road..hehehe...we have plenty of things to do and contribute to the everyday operation of things...i know i do! i can still work pretty hard and know how to do many things.
I had a sign business for many years and raised two sons by myself, i had to learn how to do things and if i couldn't do it, i often bartered my work...this will need to be a big part of communal living.
wow, we have a lot of work to do, and i can't wait to be a part of it!
geez, now i am
thanks for alowing me to ramble...
smile and love,

we are so excited that other people want to make this happen as well. i mean with the way things are going in today's society, well i for one want no part in it anymore. landon has carpentry skills along with a wicked green thumb. i am an awesome cook, and great at organizing most anything. i am a domestic do have some medical and dental training also. did anyone hear about the secret bill they're trying to pass through congress? it's to make natural and organic farming illegal and punishable by imprisonment and stiff fines of up to $500,000. it's all to chemy us up ya know, to do what "they" want. i think it is a beautiful thing for people to come together to create a new society where everyone is equally involved in every way. we will make this happen, i have faith in all of us.
i love you all,
be safe, be happy, be loved

Comment by Lonnie Berg on March 25, 2009 at 9:17pm
This is a group that I can definately get behind, communal country living has been a dream of mine for many years, and although I have yet to see my dream become reality, I've not stopped dreaming of the utopia that will someday manifest itself in my lifetime, perhaps this is the day.
Much Love to Each and Everyone of You Phamily, namaste'

I'm so glad everyone is coming together on this! Love you all! XOXO Lou
Comment by jess☮ and landon on March 25, 2009 at 10:03am
this is an excellent idea and i know people will respond. most people just want to live simply and without worry from the current status of our ever-failing government. we are looking forward to such an idea coming to light.
peace and love
