This business, community, and general plan to heal the track of human interaction with self, community, and nature comes from the sons and daughters who grew up dumbfounded and helpless to the confusing reality of a world not grounded in gratitude, humility, and courage for a peaceful way. We went to your schools. We did our best to follow your rules. But even our pure, honest light was oppressed in a society based on conspicuous consumption, intimidation, and fear.
As we grew older, we further realized the degradation of morality within industrial civilization. We'd see and feel pain for how our ancestors had disavowed the sanctity of life, for the pursuit of greed, profit, and exploitation. We'd ask ourselves "Could it have always been this way?" And in many cases we'd escape through mindless self indulgence. But at end the end of the day our pain still remained.
Then some of us were inspired. We started taking steps to learn another path. But in doing so, we felt isolated in our purge of consumer civilization. We'd wonder "Could there really be others out there like us? Everything I see on the TV tells me that this deep inclination for truth and respect is one I must keep in secret. One that if I speak too candidly about I will be laughed at and degraded."
If you can take anything from this life, know that YOU ARE NOT ALONE in this inclination. Deep down we all seek healing and inner peace. Right now, it is obvious to say that some of us fight harder to achieve it, but no matter what it is an achievable goal for any who choose the path.
Within your being, you hold the seed for the great social rebirth that will be 21st century living. You possess a personal power to engender an abundant relationship with nature. You are the only one who can transform your spirit to pursue compassion in all interactions. No one else besides you is going to save you. No politician. No sweeping technological fix. No environmentalist. No friend or lover. And you are equally not doomed by any enemy or unforeseen force to a painful uncertainty. You are your only hope at a better world.
Once you believe more in the healing potential of the human spirit than the greed and convenient consumption of a debt based monetary system you will find true freedom.
This plan represents a collective choice made by a group of individuals to better the human condition. We've come together as a living testament that WE ARE NOT ALONE in our pursuit of a sustainable society and that we are not afraid to bury the consumer identities we once believed in. We will freely share our talents and energy to align more with their path to inner peace. As we recognize and usher more to the path, we sow a meaningful unfolding in our relationship with self, community, and nature.
Dream City is not only a physical place we seek to live at in the very near future. It is also a state of mind capable of changing our belief in the very way we think things are possible. It is our emotional, spiritual, and physical exodus from a fossil fuel and debt based society many only align with because they are too afraid to pursue the unknown.
The very concept of Dream City is synonymous with innovation. We seek a relationship with anyone and everyone who has an idea to make a more compassionate, expressive, and naturally abundant world. Even if you don't have it fully figured out, there are plenty of projects to volunteer for or to financially support.
In return, everything at Dream City will be free. We do not seek profit in our pursuits. We seek only humble support to actualize these ideas in our physical reality. We seek fulfilling symbiotic relationships with other people, plants, animals, appropriate technology, and fungus. We will document and freely share our successful projects and programs. We will freely share our essential resources - food, shelter, clean water, and meaningful community- to anyone who also works for higher self and abundance in nature.
We are all medicine people. Although we may appear different to the physical eye, we recognize our common humanity and that we are all one.
We are here to cultivate harmony with our fellow people and nature. We patiently encourage all towards a path of inner peace and emotional healing. We recognize the pain we will all go through as we tread from decades of relentless oppression of meaningful self expression. It will not be easy, but WE DO HAVE THE COURAGE to do so; because we are not alone and because the compassionate human spirit can erode even the most entrenched of realities.
We are farmers, artists, engineers, and carpenters. We are Christians, Buddhists, Muslim, Hindi, Agnostics, and all borne from a Great Spirit. We are black, white, yellow, red, brown, and all cut from the same cloth of LIFE. We are male, female, straight, gay, lesbian, transgender, and bi. And we are here to build allegiance with the oneness of our conscious existence.
