5/29/13 -After many years on the front lines of liberty activism exposing fusion centers around the country, shaking down the TSA, and keeping their local officials in Texas under the microscope, the power couple Cat Bleish and John Bush (along with their two beautiful children) have found their calling: Living off the grid and outside of the government. Join this foursome as they take you on their personal journey to leave centralized institutions and create a sustainable life for themselves on their 2.4-acre Blush farm in Central Texas.

“Sovereign Living is the idea that people ought to take responsibility for providing for themselves, their family, and their community from the provision of food, the provision of health care, to the provision of community defense.” – shares John

Starting next fall the launch of Sovereign Living: The Show will share the lives of these liberty activists as they work to create their own food, shelter, water and energy system, as well as build alternative institutions and provide for their own natural healthcare. This show will create a new wave of education in the reality TV genre, and wait until you see the cinematography and style. Impressive to boot! Check out the sizzle reel here:

A supporter-based fundraiser begins this week and the family and producers hope people will support the show to ensure it can be seen by the world. Visit SovereignLiving.tv/theshow to learn more, and if you can, become a supporter and learn about the awesome incentives that come along with helping out!

Just what the liberty movement needs, media that revolves around voluntary living and sustainability. Bring your notepad, you’ll want to write down all the awesome things you learn from their experience!

In Central Texas a family of four is seeing what it takes to live a self-sufficient, voluntary, and natural life by creating their own energy, food, water system, and much more. John Bush and Catherine Bleish have taken on a task that could unplug them from dependence on large outside institutions and plug them into true sovereign living. Now you can follow their journey on the newest web series “Sovereign Living TV”. A glimpse into the series is LIVE now at SovereignLiving.tv/TheShow! This sizzle reel introduces you to the family, their goals during the season and even gives you a glimpse into the natural home-birth of their second child.

“Sovereign Living is the idea that people ought to take responsibility for providing for themselves, their family, and their community from the provision of food, the provision of health care, to the provision of community defense.” – shares John.

This bold step to self-sufficiency includes the family’s attempt to reduce their energy through a combination of preservation and alternative energy, namely solar. They are also hoping to grow, trade and farm 50% of their food needs over the course of the next year. In hopes to inspire other families and communities across the country Sovereign Living:The Show will be taking the viewer inside their lives and the obstacles and amazing feats that come along the way, while also visiting other similar farms and projects across the country. A true and diverse educational series.

A crowd/supporter-based fundraiser begins this week with the release of their “sizzle reel” and the family and producers hope people will support the show to ensure it can be seen by the world. Visit SovereignLiving.tv/theshow to learn more.

Backyard farmers by necessity: self-sufficient & debt-free


 

Uploaded on Apr 18, 2011

When Myrna and Earl Fincher married 53 years ago they started farming their yard “out of necessity”. Today, the Finchers make a living selling their organic produce to restaurants and at the local farmers’ market twice a week for much of the year. They had no experience as farmers, but learned by trial and error.

6,000 lbs of food on 1/10th acre – Urban Farm – Urban Homestead – Growing Your Own Food


 

 

Published on Mar 20, 2012

Over 6,000 pounds of food per year, on 1/10 acre located just 15 minutes from downtown Los Angeles. The Dervaes family grows over 400 species of plants, 4,300 pounds of vegetable food, 900 chicken and 1,000 duck eggs, 25 lbs of honey, plus seasonal fruits throughout the year.

From 1/10th of an acre, four people manage to get over 90% of their daily food and the family reports earnings of $20,000 per year (AFTER they eat from what is produced). This is done without the use of the expensive & destructive synthetic chemicals associated with industrial mono-cropping, while simultaneously improving the fertility and overall condition of the land being used to grow this food on. Scaled up to an acre, that would equal $200,000 per year!

To follow the Dervaes and their Urban Homesteading activites, you can find them at http://urbanhomestead.org

Urban and near-urban farming can be highly productive, causing whatever size of land you have to work with to produce with more abundance. It is time to solve hunger worldwide, through creating local food abundance…. Anyone can do it, once you learn how.

by Paul Davis (Notes) on Friday, April 26, 2013 at 9:18am
Love appears as relationship, but begins in deep solitude. Love expresses as relating, but the source of love is not in relating. When you are absolutely happy in your aloneness – when you don’t need the other at all, when the other is not in need – then you are capable of love. If the other is your need you can only exploit, manipulate, dominate, but you cannot love.
Because you depend on the other, possessiveness arises – out of fear. “Who knows? The other is with me today; tomorrow he may not be with me. Who knows about the next moment?” Your woman may have left you, your children may have grown up and left, your husband can desert you. Who knows about the next moment? Out of that fear of the future you become very possessive. You create a bondage around the person you think you love.
But love cannot create a prison – and if love creates a prison, then nothing is left for hatred to do. Love brings freedom, love gives freedom. It is Non possessiveness. But that is possible only if you have known a totally different quality of love, not of need but of sharing.
Love is a sharing of overflowing joy. You are too full of joy; you cannot contain it, you have to share it. Then there is poetry and there is something tremendously beautiful that is not of this world, that is something that comes from beyond. This love cannot be learned, but obstacles can be removed.
Many times I say the art of love, but what I really mean is: Learn the art of removing all that hinders love (house cleaning). It is a negative process. It is like digging a well: You go on removing many layers of earth, stones, rocks, and then suddenly there is water. The water was always there; it was an undercurrent. Now you have removed all the barriers, the water is available. So is love: Love is the undercurrent of your being. It is already flowing, but there are many rocks, many layers of earth to be removed.
That’s what I mean when I say learn the art of love. It is really not learning love but unlearning the ways of un-love.

'GOD's Conversation With Me'

‘GOD’s Conversation With Me’
by Paul Davis (Notes) on Friday, July 27, 2012 at 6:42pm

By Maureen Moss

Dearest Hearts,

As always I pray you are well.

Yesterday I spent hours in my backyard in stillness. I needed it. I noticed I have been craving stillness and nature more than food or water.

Surrounded by nature (and beautiful weather) I set myself in my lounge chair, journal, and a few good books to be positioned facing the mountain in the distance, with my rose and butterfly bushes up close. I took several deep breaths of gratitude for this day as a deer sauntered through the yard, and my cat was curled up in his favorite chair.

Within about ten minutes two butterflies started dancing only a few feet in front of me. Enjoying their play and clearly appreciating and honoring their path of transformation into liberation and freedom, I turned my thoughts to humanity.

My heart started thinking about what it has taken and is taking (and giving) for each one of us to go from a 3D seemingly finite human being lost in illusion, to an infinite and Divine human being, setting sail towards a new Reality. Guided to pick up my journal, I started writing about what we said yes to.

Rewiring, rebooting, solar flares, emotional flares, transits, retrogrades, separation anxiety, merging with our I Am Presence, learning how to love ourselves, learning how to love each other, over-lighting our shadows, walking in and out of our dark nights of the soul, moving into our Light Bodies, being happy for no reason, releasing our baggage (somewhere,) staying out of the story, transcending, transmuting, transcendental meditation.

Then of course how to harmonically converge with everything, and everyone, connect deeply and daily to God, get pushed through one eye of the needle after another, (to widen the plateau for our souls growth,) lose everything seemingly sacred, raise our vibrations, expand our energy fields, realize and do something with the fact that we are multidimensional beings, walk through the valley of the shadow of death 1,000 times or more, forgive, forget, and remember.

And then, have a few hundred Light activations, learn about our Mer-ka-Na, our Mer-ka-Ba, become authentic, be present, remain unattached, unaffected and balanced (!) don’t take anything personally, stay in gratitude and good health, transform a Planet, create a New World, and become God in form, fully.

I sat and stared at the page, in a bit of shock and a lot of awe.

Then I thought, seriously did anyone attempt to stop us from this Herculean feat? We would stop a child from eating too many cookies for goodness sake! Truth is, even if someone of our illustrious pre-this life Council said, “Perhaps you are taking on a bit too much this time,” together, with our souls, we knew we were mighty and powerful, genetically pre-disposed to our Mother/Father God, and we could do the seemingly impossible and change the course of history forever more, and down we came.

How could any one of us, I thought, think we are not amazing, miraculous, powerful, profound, and worthy of everything?!

We are Supreme, courageous, beings of Light! I AM a Supreme, Courageous, Being of Light!

I said those words out loud and then my heart chakra blew wide open, as tears spilled from my eyes. At the deepest level of my being, I felt an endless amount of love and connection to each one of you for agreeing to take on a feat of such proportion and magnitude, and brailing our way through it, that merely calling it a transformation sounds ridiculous. You are amazing, and I honor and love you.

And, I am deeply grateful for those that chose the experience of the opposite, not to transform at this time, but instead to play darkness and hatred out loud, in order that others would consciously choose otherwise and seek Oneness rather than destructive separation. Sooner than later that unnatural destructive separation will shift (the real reason it is being so starkly highlighted now.)

I deeply feel love for the many that are going through upheavals, pounding energies and ‘seeming’ loss, not even understanding why. Can you imagine the parts of ourselves that don’t understand the reasons why? I thought of our Oneness, in our many parts.

While in my stillness and feelings, I quietly heard Spirit say, “Open your heart wider, and take a breath.” I did. As I did I could feel myself being transported deeper into the vibrating resonance of God. There was no place, where peace and Oneness was not. I took a deeper breath. I felt the grace.

“The love and cohesiveness you feel is the vibration of Oneness, the uncomplicated vibration necessary for any of human nature to make their ascension, were it to be sustained. It is from this level of vibration that all Light can easily flow within you, all Love can consume you, all Life can easily be accessed by you, and all that is Me can easily express as you.

Connect deeper. Become the spiral within the vibration oscillating as One. Allow yourself to be consumed within the spiral of Oneness, called forth by your I Am Presence. Connect with it deeper still.

Go beyond the connection now and merge with it as One. (The Voice was coming from inside of my heart, rather than my head.) I continued to merge with the vibration as guided.

You have each made your decisions to be on the steepest curve of evolution than any species that previously walked before you. You chose on behalf of Love, both for your Soul’s evolution, and to allow Me to make a full descent and eventually to have full expression through each of you on your Planet of Earth that are willing to persevere and adjust through such demands.

You are in the highest service you may never imagine while on your Planet Earth. What you do on the outside is secondary to what you do on the inside.

Eventually the inner and outer world will be seamless, having no distinction.

I ask you now to learn to hold the vibration of Me inside of you, steadily, in the days and months ahead, as the final preparations to complete this cycle of time, conclude. Come to me daily. I will help you hold Me and inflame Me within you. You will then cross the threshold between the old world and the new. That is My Promise to you.

You have all of my tendencies and capabilities, Beloved Ones. Remember that. Let your ‘self’ go so I may enter and have a greater expression as you. If this is to occur I must be in the midst of you, always. A moment of Oneness is but a taste of your fullness.

The next step in your evolution is to experience your fullness, without attachment, through stabilized vibrations of love, peace, harmony and Oneness. I AM a stabilized vibration of each, having neither a thought nor a feeling about it. I simply Am That. And so it shall be sooner or later for each one of you as your craving for freedom takes you over.”

And so it is that my evolutionary pilgrimage continues, along with further conversations and guidance. What I know for sure is the desire for God to express in full regalia through us is not just a metaphor or a topic of conversation. It is Truth and if we allow it, it will be our greatest adventure on this Earth.

Know you are loved.

Maureen
