Isidorus Hispalensis - My relatives built or owned this property. I am a descendent of the Harper's.
yolee aku - liberation of some kind is on my mind, but its not going to happen within this 1800s America paradigm... its a nice story, but when you're a 20 year old living a present life, in the modern world, its a bit overbearing... liberation is something that happens constantly but it doesn't happen in the same way twice eh? its not liberation from slavery im talking about its more of a mental thing... a meditative thing... liberation from reiki's monopoly on energy healing maybe haha, chi liberation
dennis stallings - some interesting transitions,liked it
Lisa Rosdonen - Tutelo, Saponi, and Cherokee Tribes are known to inhabit these parts, nowadays you can learn some Tutelo language online, a language which was only a few decades ago nearly completely forgotten, help restore honor and learn from Native American culture, and get in touch with your own primal intuitive side in nature, we all have one, it doesn't have to be Native American, we are all native to nature!
Rainy Flame - Dimethyltryptamine
yolee aku - No need for me to look like I'm slaving, it's an exhibit, I just love nature, I do what I can, I'm actually a pretty fortunate folk I guess. It's a trickster element almost.. U guys r fine ur hopes aren't connected to me I am truly just another being doing my fair part to help nature, classic kinda meeting scenario tho, history vs, the needs of present, but this too shall pass eh?
flowingheartWELOVETHEUNIVERSE! - Discordianism
yolee aku - OM
flowingheartWELOVETHEUNIVERSE! - split, i.e. to reach this we pray by adding text to the torah, in prayer over parts which go against commandments, i.e. to love thy neighbor, not to look upon family members in sex, etc, intuitive places where we see the torah lack in virtue, yet we are taught to do this makes us hitler, yet we do it in a peaceful way, and it heals the past and future, this makes judaism forever current we realize all is prophecized and God makes us stand idly for no injustice...
yolee aku - don't wanna be disrespectful to that story, but im not really operating within that circle.. to me it just looks like colonialism, which is in itself stressful just by its associations psychologically, even if its a story of liberation, im more trying to smoothen out, laugh at that stuff a bit, but mainly head out to where theres no more signs or sculptures, and its just true nature, and let the plants work and detoxify me... that's why I recycle also, if the plants will do me, ill do them! :)
Lisa Rosdonen - Mugwort Grove
Diamond sutra Buddha - amazing food and cool art... dreamy setting... loving kindness
flowingheartWELOVETHEUNIVERSE! - and becomes main diety of discordia
OurTrip Videos - @osprey02 Thanks. It will encourage us.
flowingheartWELOVETHEUNIVERSE! - The flowers of the Artemisia Juddica are often placed about the beds in an Eastern house to drive away bugs, or are burnt to keep off mus- quitos ; and Burton recommends pillows of worm- wood in order to procure sleep. Dr. Home, too, gives an instance of a woman who was cured of hysteric fits of many years standing, after assafcetida and other more powerful drugs had entirely failed.
yolee aku - Discover the ways in which artifacts, language, religion, government, economic systems, occupations, arts, housing, and clothing served as an expression of the Virginia Indian culture.
Diamond sutra Buddha - Reflective of the wide spectrum of plant life, a surprising diverse set of people live in the town area, of all heritages, great example of what America really is. Perhaps we are the moon form of the plants, we see ourselves as people but when we walk in the trees we look at our reflection in the various floras herbs and leaf patterns
Gently in the East - Namo Guru Mira
yolee aku - WVBeach Be Shy, very interesting kind of ranger beach. Why are the rangers always in town? They are historical rangers but what about the other kinds of rangers? It's almost like a video game, get the rangers to help there be more recycling bins and really let the park shine on it's own the park is not historical it is present moment
Diamond sutra Buddha - Lots of interesting herbs growing, from plantains, to wormwood, milk thistle to skullcap, but this ain't no farm, it's growing wild scattered all over... Reminiscent of Innovative Japanese rice cultivator masanobu Fukuoka
flowingheartWELOVETHEUNIVERSE! - the emerald tablet
yolee aku - i am just not going for the savior drama, its too scheduled, hehe.. you guys have talked about this for years now, earth rising sanctuary... its okay, once is enough, one liberation of slaves and beginning of the civil war was great, now slavery is gone, it doesn't need to be acted out again and again, that's for lower town area, during exhibits, the rest of this place is a nature park... its just kind of bad to try to work in the shadow of someone who has already done something similar
flowingheartWELOVETHEUNIVERSE! - Luck
yolee aku - It's just way too conceptual for me, it seems like you're waiting for some kind of offering.
d boon mike watt - I am a person named D. I am not the Ghost of D Boon and his Girlfriend, why are they so set up around me? The minutemen were an awesome band... may their spirits be at rest, and may we be distinct from eachother, but im not changing my name, and I want my friends back, they are not dead, why are they acting weird! *casts spell against the Nazi occult*
