I am in the middle of an intensive Permaculture Design Course by Midwest Permaculture www.midwestpermaculture.com and I am enjoying it. I didn't know exactly what to expect from such an expensive class, but it is at the very least feeding my head and allowing me to meet interesting likeminded people who are also passionate to varying degrees about creating and maintaining a sustainable lifestyle.
I really feel, at this point in my life, that permaculture and other sustainable systems of living are the key to human survival on this planet. I mean, sure we can go on living this way until we run out of oil & clean water and air, but are we really truly happy with our lives the way that they are? I don't think so, really, and I have been delving into the spirituality of of existence my whole life, trying to understand what it really all means. I don't know if there is any definite answer to life's ever present questions, but there are definite ways in which to live which emphasize the beauty, grace, and meaning of life, just as there are ways in which to create a sustainable lifestyle which create beauty, abundance, and meaning.
I will post later.
