Self-Sustainability On Our New Earth
January 29 2006
Written by Rebecca Michaels
These words do not sound very
supportive for Self-Sustainability, do they? True, because they are
not. Powerful statements are made by each of these words,
though not in a Life-Affirming way. However, they are very
supportive and indicative of the way the people in our world live today,
of what countless have accepted as a daily way of life, and points
directly away from the very thing the majority of us need to do now to
be able to continue existence with Earth; Self-Sustainability.
People in every niche of life,
whether a Natural setting or in a city, suffer the affects of
flamboyant-ignorance, hatred, greed, poisoning and genocide. The
‘modern’ world has seeped & oozed into all Natural habitats in every
niche of our Earth; both quietly and with bull dozers. It is
the ‘modern’ world which as hypnotized its subjects through means of
obvious propaganda for a cleaner, bacteria free, shining, fast-paced,
saves time, techno addicted, convenient, me first & often ONLY,
flamboyantly-ignorant, hatred driven, greedy, poison everything for
convenience, who cares not for who/what is killed as long as it “does
not disturb my life” mentality. We are clearly out of
balance, no longer in harmony with the Natural Earth and Natural Cycles
of our days and nights. Quietly and by ‘bull-dozer’ methods
have we now transported ourselves into this fragile condition which
hangs by a thread in existence. Of course many cannot feel
any of this because they are too busy, too harried, too involved with
their personal agendas, too obsessed with the newest this or that to
even hear the ‘bulldozers’.
Quietly, from vaccinations
(all vaccinations are tainted and direct poison; there are no ‘good
vaccinations to help people and countries’, poisoned GMO faux-food which
disrupt cellular integrity and inhibits cells’ ability to communicate in
a health-filled biological organism such as a human, and any/all actions
taken against Another Ourselves which no one outside the direct activity
is made aware of, nor who can compensate the wrong inflicted.
By the bull-dozer methods
(both in metaphor and in physical) because we all are aware of the
devastation which continues to happen in our Rain Forests, Ancient
Redwood Forests, to our Earth’s Animals, and to our oceans worldwide in
the most obscene and obvious ways.
I am only offering examples and by
no means are these the only ones on the near-endless list if one takes
the list from the obvious macrocosm and continues to view it into the
quantum of the microcosm of what we cannot see with the naked eye, yet
is alive and part of us all….Another Ourselves.
Ok, we have simplistically
covered hatred, greed, poisoning and genocide, now what of
flamboyant-ignorance? Why is that so much more non-supportive
to Self-Sustainability than just stated ‘ignorance’?
Flamboyant-ignorance is expressed when anyone of us on Earth chooses to
deny, ignore, and walk-away from any stomach-turning,
hide-my-eyes-not-to-see-the abuse & pain of Another Ourselves---no
matter how small or how blatant and obscene. We also are
flamboyantly-ignorant when we choose to use a chorine based product
(though this is by no means the only chemical! I am
just using one ‘small’ example). No matter the excuse, the reason or the
consideration. Whether it is to disinfect, to use
white/bleached papers for correspondence, to use ‘white’ flour (strictly
a propaganda from the 1920’s in the ‘modern’ world. Why do
even our edibles have to be WHITE and bleached?!), or in products which
go onto our bodies. These products are poisons used
against us, and produce additional poisons as they are manufactured AND
when they are in our drains which ultimately go into the water we use on
our bodies…. even organic farms use this water on our food which in turn
comes into our bodies. I emphasize the flamboyant aspect of
flamboyant-ignorance because it is flamboyant AND un-responsible to
not Pay Attention to the items and chemicals we use, as well as how
often we use them. ‘Modern’ people are addicted to items and ways which
produce greed, poison and genocide….certainly by-products of
flamboyant-ignorance and hatred. It is flamboyant &
non-responsible because we now live in a world completely consumed by
and for chemicals. It is overwhelming as one begins the
conscious dis-connect from the matrix process to return to the Natural
Earth because one is made aware of how addictive all products have
become, and one wonders how they will live without electronic gadgets,
electro-magnetic & microwave gadgets, without chemicals, without GMO
faux-food, without fast food, without ____ and _____.
Well, one lives very well…
AFTER their input and output is more in balance with their authentic
requirements in life. Value for Life returns….all Life. Road rage
dissolves, we find creative solutions and we laugh more. We also
discover that we Love more, and in return can open to feel the Love
others have for us.
Self-Sustainability is a
Wholistic process which involves our bodies, our minds, our emotions,
our spirituality and consciousness thereof. We each will take
steps which are comfortable for us, and which have Value or add Value to
our daily lives. We make these steps in small ways, and if we choose one
step each week or every 2 weeks, our world will be completely
transformed into our New Earth within a few short years. Will this
happen? I hope so. It takes focus and constant action. It takes
speaking up & out that each of us have in our world have reached the
“ENOUGH!” stage. Enough flamboyant-ignorance, enough hatred, enough
greed, enough poison, enough genocide, enough war, enough of ALL
non-Life-Affirming thoughts, words, and actions. Enough.
For me, this is my 5th
‘re-visit’ to the subject of Self-Sustainability since 1974. This time I
chose to begin with food. A few years ago I ate only sprouted beans &
grains, brown rice, and bee pollen for almost 2 years and loved it. Each
of our bodies have very different requirements and we each have to
decide what is best for us. For me, I feel in Harmonic Wellness when I
am enjoying sprouts, bee pollen, juicing vegetables/fruits and bringing
super-greens into my body.
Support for Life-Affirmation
Let us look at some other powerful
and potent wordings.
Generosity in sharing
Acceptance that each living
entity is Another Ourselves and We are God-Source incarnate.
Redistribution of our resources, and actions which
replenish all Life.
micro-eco-farming, Community Gardens, Seedballs.
We are each an aspect of
God-Source and each necessary for the Whole of humanity upon Earth.
These words are Life-Affirming,
are the compliment as well as some of the solutions to the
non-life-affirming words which are at the opening of this article which
exist on Earth at this time.
Will We Survive As A
Good question. A question which is
on our minds, our tongues and racing across our keyboards.
Self-Sustainability is a passion
of mine, though like many other people, I have just danced around the
fringes of the topic/solutions/ways of life. Now it is Time to stop
dancing, stop crusading, and get our finger and toe nails into the good
rich soil/Body of our Earth. Even for those in Africa and forced desert
lands, there can be joy with getting involved with the soil again!
OK. So you are still reading and
nodding with me as you read!
The next question that all most
everyone asks is,”What can I do?” (I live in an apartment,
in the city, don’t know a thing about gardening OR self-sustainability,
don’t have the time or resources or_____).
There are many varied and exciting
levels to a Self-Sustainable Life. My passion is gardens, herbs and
utilizing them in daily life, so my focus in this article is about
supporting people to begin to choose small steps each day to become more
detached from the addictive matrix and to discover places where they can
manifest change toward creating their lives more Self-Sustainable.
To use myself as an example, my
steps are to make our own bread (by hand, not machine) so I know exactly
what goes into it & I use a variety of flours which is fun, make my
dog’s food again & re-establish a small garden, and next I want to
create our body bath products. Another goal is to create Seedballs,
which I will discuss further along in this article and will have
information about on my website:
. I will also have listed, alternatives for those who have wheat
intolerances or just choose to be free from the forced wheat in american
food products. There of course is an infinite number of recipes and
files of information on alternative sources for one’s dietary
consumption, so I will only offer very simple ideas or recipes and
encourage the reader to adapt and research what works best for them and
We all know the non-life-affirming
activities which are happening in the world. We all are aware of the
multitudes of cultural and spiritual prophecies as well. Within all
prophecies it is stated there is a time which is void, whereby the next
course is not Known, and that it is up to each person to define their
personal reality which in turn gives shape to the larger reality of
consciousness, which in its turn defines, creates and manifests our
physical existence……hence our world. I Know that as we each ‘close the
door’ emotionally and stop giving our Attention and Energy to the
non-life-affirming people, situations, causes, laws, etc, is when our
personal reality becomes more simple, contains more value, has more Love
in it and the non-life-affirming activities & existence literally fades
away. At first it fades like a memory. This is how it is for me now.
Next is that since none of us provide ‘it’ with energy, it has no course
in this world of agreed-to duality, than to vanish.
How do we ignore the
destruction and abuse of Another Ourselves? After all, I even stated
we cannot ignore another’s abuse, so is this contradictory? And what
does this have to do with Self-Sustainability?! The Key is to View a
person or situation as duality and as a paradox. Observe them or it from
a quantum perspective, whereby 2 compositions with energetic components
can and do share the same ‘space’---the dimensional realities are
different, yet both viewable at the same time and one can experience
them both simultaneously. It is what some refer to as viewing with
detachment. When we remove our emotion from the experience or the
observation, we can be in balance, and experience a conscious level of
multi-dimensionality. It is the act of being conscious of activities
which are expressing as non-life-affirming whilst feeling states of
consciousness such as Love, Compassion and ultimately Appreciation which
allow the physical situation to shift and then fade into a memory.
Energy follows Attention. When we acknowledge devastation is
occurring, yet have no emotional response to it, we do not battle it,
try to make it different or change the course, the Energy of our
Attention does not go to the person, place or situation, which heightens
the intensity of duality. At this moment of balance, as we shift our
focus from balance into the passion within our Heart Centers/our inner
most God-Source space, have the intent of “enough. I see and live on
Earth in Beauty within me” and keep our Attention within ourselves and
our own energy field---this is when the miracle happens. This also leads
us to the next step in re-creating, re-establishing Heaven on Earth,
re-structuring everything around us…..Self-Sustainability. As we each
turn our focus from outward to inward, address our own wars within
ourselves, create a self-sustaining Attitude of peace-fullness,
acceptance and Appreciation, then so too will our outer expressions of
war, abuse and Earth’s seeming destruction cease.
Each of us has a very specific
Design for our life. It may be that a person, I will use Cindy
Sheehan as an excellent example here (the American mother whose 24
yr.old son was killed in Iraq, who has been very vocal in protesting the
administration of America and who has great numbers of supporters in
America as well as around the world.). A person, such as Ms.Sheehan, has
the Design to shift situations from non-life-affirming to life-affirming
as an activation, as an example for others and as a template for the
New. In these cases, the person has an authentic passion, such as Ms.
Sheehan has with her cause. In these situations, the person would not do
well to strive for balance, detachment and Appreciation for the Whole,
because it is her/his ‘job’ to do something very, very different. Martin
Luther King, Jr, Mahatma Gandhi and John Lennon are other such examples.
We each must determine with our Soul’s assistance, what is authentic
passion and what is emotional, from our own wounded experiences and
You might be asking what does
all this have to do with Self-Sustainability?
To me….. everything. One can go
‘off grid’ with their house, and without the pro per Attitude in their
Heart, it does little good except save them money and not use as much
grid electricity. Of course, making that stand does send a
message to the ‘powers that be’, though unfortunately they do not care
right now. It definitely helps, I am not saying otherwise! For me,
though, I go after the ‘whole hog’, and have a passion to support people
who are making vast shifts within themselves, within their living
conditions and for our Earth. We each have a Design. Some are to
Understand how to Love themselves, others to reach out and assist
another person or animal, others to work in the community to make living
conditions better, some are due to assist in The Shift of Consciousness
thru the political arena, others in the building materials industry,
others with our oceans, others will be assisting in re-structuring all
that we experience and know now so we may live in our New Earth. There
is sacredness within each of us, and there is no single ‘right’ path to
take. It is not for any of us to say that we all must pray, or that we
all must take up arms, or that we all must demonstrate/battle or that we
all must sit in meditation and hold a single vision of New Earth! We
each have a ‘job’ to do here on Earth at This Time. We can choose to
manifest New Earth or remain in the dissolving memory of the old ways in
non-life-affirming actions. There is sacredness within each of us. A
holiness within all human, animal, plant, and mineral structures. It is
this sacredness, this holiness which is the foundation as well as the
focus of Natural Farming and all forms of Self-Sustainability.
I recently received an article
describing how the BLM (Bureau of Land Management) in America was
blatantly and irresponsibly proposing a program to apply massive amounts
of herbicides to forests, rangelands, conservation areas and aquatic
areas over approximately 932,000 acres in 17 western states in order
(supposedly) to reduce the risk of fire. Once I
settled down and was able to move into a neutral state of being around
this, what came to mind was an article by Jim Bones from 1995, recently
re-issued across the net regarding Masanobu Fukuoka who is considered
the Sensei of Natural Farming. Mr. Fukuoka has said, ”The
world is digging itself into a bottomless pit with modern agriculture.
The simple hearth of the small farm is the true center of our universe.
Scientific thought is leading you away from a healthy life. Even the
practice of conventional organic agriculture is a dangerous digression.
It cannot be sustained if you have to rob one part of the earth to feed
another”. One of his quotes is, “The ultimate goal of farming is not the
growing of crops, but the cultivation and perfection of human beings.”
He continues, “Ignorance, hatred and greed are killing Nature. Down,
down everything goes. As we kill Nature, we are killing ourselves, and
God incarnate as the world as well.” It is mainly his philosophy and
over 60 years in Natural Farming which is now my foundation to much of
my reality. I have always felt the modernized world is full of greed and
clearly full of genocide. Genocide to me involves people, cultures,
countries, civilizations, spiritual practices (NOT religion, for that is
a special genocidal machine unto itself. A large difference between
spiritual and religious), animals, life in the oceans, plants, as well
as all genes which produce any form of life.
With these wise words, it is quite
easy to understand Now is the Time to begin to be Self-Sustainable. Now
is the Time to become proficient in our Self-Sustainability, we can wait
no longer. Now is the Time to find alternative water sources, simple
ways of water purification (such as GSE; grapefruit seed extract), to
bake our own bread so we do not ingest more poisons, to make our own
yogurt so we are free from bgHT & various pathogens & toxins,
etc----AND, most importantly, to join together with those who do the
things we do not, and have the items which we use. Community gardens and
Seedballs are only aspects of the Whole which are required right Now. We
also must offer our services, barter, exchange and re-distribute
resources/our Abilities with others in exchange for the things we need
and the things others require.
Small groups all over the world
have begun, and the momentum is here. We certainly have attained the
“100th Monkey” process within The Shift of Consciousness, and
most certainly the control structures around the world which represent
non-life-affirming traits are collapsing in rapid sequence, and Now is
the Time to re-build our lives, our world and do it from a
life-affirming, inclusive, utilizing
‘all-the-parts-for-the-greater-Life-of-the-Whole’ perspective for our
New Earth. We in cities need to become sustainable and have alternatives
to the standard heating/cooling/electricity needs, as well as to the now
accepted methods of how we get our food and water. What is required is
that we think “New”, that we think “out of all the boxes”, that we join
with others in diversity to discover what creative solutions are
presented and can be easily applied. I absolutely Know that we are at a
Time where many will step forward and offer their knowledge about zero
point energy, about free-energy modalities/devices, about how to remove
the saline from sea water—easily & inexpensively… without the patents
that many believe they need and will bring them millions of
dollars/euros or whatever the current accepted tool happens to be that
day. Some will step forward and offer their ‘free energy’ devices to
homes and businesses, JUST to inundate the ‘market’, and produce a New
arena whereby people can be more easily and inexpensively
Self-Sustaining off grid, out of the box, detached from the control
Originally, Earth, Source and
OurSelves gave us the Ability and Knowledge to sustain ourselves. We
have complicated this organic Wisdom and our existence/survival with the
introduction and now emotional/mental dependence upon technology, which
has produced pollution and in turn keeps the cycle of greed and
addiction in motion. We still have available to us Nature’s medicine
cabinet of herbs to assist us to assimilate some form of balance which
will support our passion for Self-Sustainability. When a people are not
healthy, it has been proved that they lack passion and the will to
control themselves. We do not have to be addicted to dependence upon
pharmaceutical poisons. Such devices were first composed from the
botanical compositions which Nature provides. With our diversions over
the years and our hypnosis in believing that allopathic medicine has
answers and remedies, we have forgotten the basics. There are a few
basic herbs which when concocted in various ways serve to clear
pulmonary challenges, heal abrasions, reduce inflammation and knit
bones. We do not have to go to expensive, overwhelming or ridiculous
measures to be Self-Sustaining----with our food, with our medicinal
remedies, with our lives.
How can I possibly do all this
Self-Sustainability stuff and still have time to go to my 40+ hour job,
tend to my family, my pets and have personal time? Reduce, Reuse,
Recycle, utilize others’ offerings in exchange, simplify your daily
output of energy for tasks, do only what has value to you and your
family, let many activities go, and….AND……do what brings you Joy and
makes your Heart Sing, and you will have the resources you require.
Yes, that’s right, unplug from that job you hate and allow (and
encourage) it to dissolve into a memory. What do you do well? Offer it
to others. This subject is an entire article on its very own!!! When we
do what we love, all else follows. We are out of balance, out of cycle
with Nature, and not respecting the great gift and responsibility of
being God-Source incarnate. As Metatron says, “That which is not of the
Heart vibration, shall not stand”.
Once we each have simplified, how
we express what versions of Self-Sustainability is really going to come
from what we each value, what we each deem as most important. For some
it may be personal gardens, for other community gardens, for others,
micro-eco-farming (the book: “Trends 2010”, “Micro Eco-Farming:
Prospering From Backyard to Small Acreage in Partnership With The
Earth”. And view
For some it may be a focus on medicinal herbs to share with others, or
organic production of dairy products. For others still,
Self-Sustainability will translate to taking action to dis-connect from
the electricity grid. All actions are important. It is not necessary
that one take ALL Self-Sustainability actions….just that they take some.
What is vital in all this however, is to connect with others to share
and exchange items, goods, food, medicinals, talents & abilities—both
physical and metaphysical methods. For us all to work as a global
community which forms a symbiotic Whole relationship. After we take
action and begin to connect with others in this theme, we will
organically shift from focus upon ‘the individual’ to responding as a
group consciousness. There is a huge difference between
“Light-polarized, hive mentality” and a “Wholistic, holistic,
self-sustainability consciousness” whose intent and actions are about
potent, inclusive individual participation which strengthens the
whole---AS the Whole and as individuals. In the latter group, we each
sense, has the organic knowing/intuition/telepathy/connection to the Web
of Life type of Knowing of the other people involved and what is needed
for the Whole to remain strong and harmonic.
For many of us, we will make the
large shift to Self-Sustainability in small steps. Maybe sprouting our
food, making our bread, and creating combinations of foods which support
our current shifting, mutating biology. Most people can no longer
tolerate GMO flour, wheat, corn and even those substances that claim “no
GMO”, cannot be completely positive of this because the vast majority of
public seeds were tainted decades ago!
Grains such as barley, rye,
quinoa, and amaranth can easily replace the common wheat flour. These
can be mixed into delicious breads and goodies. Unyeasted breads with
sprouted beans or grains provide what our mutating bodies require now in
the ingestion of ‘Light, living organisms’.
Container gardens are easy and a
good option for some people. Community gardens have vast advantages in a
community. Mr. Fukuoka’s Seedballs is an exquisite method for most of
us around the world. These can be tossed anywhere, anytime and have no
restraints as do common farming methods. They will work well in Africa
or the rainforests…or in our cities. Anywhere there is bare soil. This
is the perfect way to reverse global desertification by this Natural
As Mr.Fukuoka states, “If you just
sow clay seedballs with 100 kinds of seeds, do not worry about water.
Where there is green, water comes. Do not think I do this, for only God
has created perfect things”.

I invite you to:
Define, clarify and discern where
you can simplify.
To declare you choose to keep in
your life because it has value to you and makes your Heart Sing.
To begin to express what you love
to do, what your Heart’s Desire is at this moment, to express your
Passions in life.
And as The Magdalen states:
“The truth unveiled.
For those who have eyes to see, let them see.
For those who have ears to hear, let them listen.
For those who have neither, let them pass on.”
