Reaching Our True Potential - Clan Living

I don't give my knowledge to others so that they will follow me, or look up to me. I do it so they realise who and what they are, how much they have been lied to and in turn it will empower them. The world doesn't need more mindless slaves, it needs more knowledgeable teachers and leaders, who can help everyone else realise who they are and empower them too.

In a world where everyone has independent thought, who know who they are, what they are and their true Will and purpose there would be no need for war. People who can think for themselves and be responsible for themselves as well as others, will have no need to look up to others as gurus. They will be more willing to take their true place in a clan, as they will know their own unique role and how they fit in.

This man works in the fields all day, growing crops and tending animals. He feels a great sense of pride in his work, as he knows his work feeds the clan.

This woman is a Mother, who brings new life to the clan. She is there for the children constantly, no need for a nanny. She enjoys her work, as she knows she is creating the clan of the future.

This man is an Artist, he decorates the clan buildings with his works of Art, he is happy that he can spend his life creating things that will delight and inspire everyone in the clan.

This woman is wise and spiritual, she loves to arrange ceremonies and festivals for the whole clan to enjoy, and to teach the young ones about the past.

This man has a passion for making and building things, he loves to provide cover and protection to the clan, by building them beautiful homes that keep them safe from the elements.

This woman is a natural healer, she knows which herbs will heal and how to comfort the ill.

This man and woman are getting older now, and so they spend their time teaching their craft to those younger than them. They are happy to be passing their knowledge on and the respect they have gained from their pupils for teaching them these important skills.

There are so many more roles in a clan, that don't feel like work, as they come naturally. It is all about giving and only taking what we need. It is more important to give, as this creates more happiness than just taking ever can.

When you are living in a natural clan type community, something that is missing these days, everyone has a place and everyone a purpose. Everyone is happy, because they are doing what they love best.

There might be someone who organises things for the clan but that is just another job, like all the others. Just something they are good at and all the other clan members think so too. No ego, no one is better, everyone is important, everyone is equal.

The ego of the spiritually dead would be the only thing stopping someone from wanting to live a life like this. Those who want to control others and force them into work they don't want to do, through their own greed and need to have more than others, which leads to misery and war. Only happy people living life doing the things they were always meant to do, in small clans, leads to a world without war.

How can we ever recover this? How can we learn to use modern technology to make this kind of lifestyle better than it might have been in the past? How can we learn to live in harmony with nature and not destroy it? Maybe it is something that needs to start small, and then spread? Maybe we have the power to start something like this now? What scares us so much for leaving the 9-5 slog in a dead end job, that makes us feel ill, stressed and lifeless? Maybe nothing, have you had enough?

Let's make it happen


  1. I have had enough! Yes! I have been thinking about this a lot lately, actually. I want to start a farm and start working to living a life that is as self-sustaining as possible, and I would like to invite others to come and live on this farm, as well. To start a community of people who have also had enough and who want to live a more spiritually fulfilling life. My husband tells me this is impossible, which worries me, because I know I am supposed to do this...The doors are opening and as they do I will go through them to make this dream a reality. It will be hard work, but I believe this to be possible. Anyonelse who feels this is possible and finds others to be discouraging to this idea and feeling: keep the dream alive, the doors will open for you, all you have to do is walk through them.

  2. Yes sounds like you want to do what we are trying to do. The biggest problem we are facing is getting people to actually do it, rather than just talk about how nice it would be. Once I have sold my house I will be looking for land, but we need more people or it won't work.
