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.

As long as we're on the subject, the occupiers have released a "statement of purpose" which is very well written. You'll find it at


(OK, so someone that doesn't quite get it wrote the description)

You are all invited to join in the discussion and exchange of ideas at Guidelines for a Conscious Community.

We are rapidly approaching the time when our survival in a safe living environment will depend on doing it right. Now is the time for planning and preparation.

May Peace and Love be among us.

@Whyt Mountain Bear:  I'm guessing you already know how to set up a simple farady cage to protect electronic against flares and EMP? A simple metal filing cabinet is good for smaller items. If anyone needs more information, just ask.

Greetings brothers and sisters.

I've joined up here not because I'm living physically in an intentional community yet (however I know that time is coming), but to cross-pollinate this group with space-containment-and-housing group because I believe there's a lot we can learn from each other.

We've just been developing both portable and permanent structures based on the hexayurt concept. Please check in and see what's going on.

We will shortly have a synopsis forum going there that will cut through all the discussion and summarize design concepts, however if you scan through the brainstorming sessions you will no doubt have something to contribute and possibly walk away with something new.

Thanks, and may peace and love go with you wherever you are.
