Subject:My freedom plan (anyone still readin' here?)
Posted by:araminya.
Time:1:24 am.
Overall plan: I still have 2½ years of school left (I just started this fall). During this time I will sell & give away almost all of my belongings - I'll keep only my favourite clothes, crafting supplies, a few books & CDs, Monkees DVDs, and memories (diaries, the mug I always used at my late granny's place, and the like). What I can't/don't want to take with me, will be left at either of my parent's; I'll pack a backbag and start living from Rainbow Gathering to a Rainbow Gathering. (I'm in Europe; there's at least one small Gathering every month somewhere.) I know I won't always want to be in a Rainbow camp, but leaving's ok - better, actually, so Rainbow won't lose its shininess.

Short-time plan: Next summer, right after school is over, I and my brother will hitchhike to/in Europe. In July, he'll go to the European Gathering in Iberia while I'll head back to Finland to the Finnish Rainbow Gathering (because my school starts too early, pfft).

Shorter-time plan: We're hitchhiking to Denmark in about a week to spend Christmas and New Year's Eve in Ting, a Northern European Gathering! <3

(I also got the crazy idea in the middle of a night that I'd sell/donate my stuff next spring and move into a teepee/winter tent to the countryside where my school is, haha. Not handy at all right now, but some day I'll live like this, for as long as I feel like it.)

Subject:Hey...I'm new here!!!
Posted by:oldandeasy.
Time:10:44 pm.
Wheeee....I just discovered this group, almost by accident, and it is exactly where I belong. But it took me a long time to find out how to post to it . . . and I'm not even yet sure that this is the way to go about it. Something said about 'go back to your client' or something, but . . . hey, I don't even know what a client is?

Anyway, I just want to talk about being free for a moment. It was eggzactly what I wanted 35 years ago! And I went ahead and gotit. Yes, I left the stupid rat race, after a very lost 20 years at that game, and went through the turbulence and uncertainty of finding my way in what was literally a new game, by God. It took a few years to get all the old kinks out — though I hafta say, a different reality began kicking in for me from the very first week into it.

This is it, guys . . . what nobody else realizes, except those who have made the transition (and damn few of us there are), is that our whole cultural world (I mean the one regarded as 'everyday life') is nothing more real than just a certain version of reality, believed in and pursued by everyone around, because they all agree on it, and therefore it is so. Now don't freak out over that statement, or rush into denial . . . let me make the necessary qualifications.

The table your computer is on is real, and so is the mailman who brings your daily mail, and the cars out on the street, etc. etc. But the idea (just for instance) that there are 24 hours in a day, or something called the big dipper in the sky, or that . . . . you have to pay some 'going rate' for shelter!!! . . . These are merely 'knowledge', and I call them fixations that we don't even think about, we just take them for granted. And its the fixations in our minds that we learn to let go of (only if we want to) as the days and weeks and years of our freedom continue to grow.

Well, I think I've said enough for an intro. Especially as this doesn't seem like a very active site to me. Talk back to me, whoever is out there, and we'll see if we can generate some dialog.

Mood: discontent.
Im considering changing schools after this year. Right now im upsate at SUNY Morrisville doing what i always wanted, equine science and breeding. The program is ok, although the hunt seat teacher and coach are both very nasty people. We will eventually learn alot i think, prob starting next semester. Even though the program isnt all that bad the people are awful. Iv never felt so out of place anywhere. The other girls are just cruel. They are a bunch of stuck up brats who their whole lives they boarded their horse somewhere and someone else did all the work they should have done. I really dont want to get into the horse industry full time if thats how the majority of people are going to be. Im considering maybe switching to a college in Boston. I could do a major in poli sci and a minor in womens studies. Im just so unhappy at this school. yuck. I dont know what to do, Im going to keep looking for transfer schools on the Princeton Review, I have a year but thats not long cause you have to apply by a certin date and stuff. I thought the whole college stress thing was supposed to end after youd been in it for 3 years!!!

Hey I just stumbled across this community and I think that this is exactly what I need. I want to be able just to say whats on my mind and maybe get some advice on various situations in my life. Id also like to share the amazing experiences that I sometimes have and the tearful ones as well. My name is Katheryne but everyone calls me Ryne. Im 20 years old. I live in NY and I attend Morrisville State University. Right now up at school it is a very gloomy, depressing time. An 18 year old girl named Bridget was killed by one of our horses (Im an Equine breeding Managment major). She was kicked in the throat and no one saw it happen. Its been a really awful time for the last week or so. We had a memorial yesterday, not a dry eye in the place. For some good news I got Max Creek tickets for october for 2 nights in a row in rochester. Im so excited!! I havent seen them since Camp Creek, and that is way to long! ok well i need to get some shut eye cause i have to be up at 4:30am to direct traffic at the yearling sale tomarrow!! Gnight all, keep dreamin.
