I live naked and barefooted, very close to Earth and Nature, in an 18-acre, off-grid, clothing-optional, food-forest intentional community (GaiaYoga Gardens), way out in the jungles of Lower Puna, far East Big Island, Hawai'i, and I have for more than 5 years now. Although there are many challenges, I love my life, and I'm immensely grateful to live where and how I do, on my own terms! I would not want to live any other way! 😁🙏💚⚡💥🔥✴️✳️❇️👣🌱✨🤙

HBD in Savings is arguably the most consistent, dependable, reliable, and profitable income sources on the Blockchain, which makes me curious as to why it's not more extensively utilized. At the present 20% APR and monthly compounding interest, the potential to create a very efficient and effective income-generating machine, off of which we may at some point be able to live, is huge.

An example from memory that I like to give, to help flesh it out a bit, is that with 120,000 HBD in Savings, the monthly interest would be 2,000 HBD, which is pegged to the US Dollar, so quite good amount. Also, since the interest is compounded each month, it also continues to grow. At some point the interest would grow faster than we could practically use it, which is the goal. This is why I've given so much importance and focus to growing my HBD in Savings as quickly as possible.

Yes, our algorithmically-pegged, decentralized stablecoin HBD is a wonder of collaborative technological accomplishments, and the holy grail of cryptocurrencies. As much as I appreciate it, however, being aware as I am about the imminent engineered global financial crash, I am left to wonder what would happen to HBD if and when the US Dollar drops to zero value?

The short term would likely not be pleasant, however, given that HBD and how it functions is open-source code that is developed by the communtity, I'm quite certain that the developers would choose another target for the peg, perhaps gold or BTC. I think that discussions about this idea should begin now, if they haven't already started, since being prepared is a very good thing. I'm curious to hear your thoughts about this.

Yesterday, Thursday, I left the Flow House, after my round of Hive tasks, around 1:15PM, to first help several people with hoisting the new tarp over two of the car ports which are being rebuilt. After I was done with that, I took a shower, then I returned to the Flow House for a short break, before straining out and blending kefir (kefir-honey-cinnamon-cacao), taking more photos for these posts, and then preparing and potting up several cuttings of a very-large giant tropical clumping bamboo, Dendrocalamus giganteus until sunset. After working, I took another shower, collected a quart jar of my kefir blend from the Landing fridge, then I made my way back to the Flow House, for my evening round of Hive tasks, and catching up on my notifications. I got everything done by just before 10:30PM, and after engaging on Waves for a bit, and scanning my X feed, I went to bed just a bit before 12AM. I did sleep well, super thankfully, waking up to the sound of Ano's truck being moved into place to unload mulch. Unloading the mulch was supposed to have been done some time over the last two days, because Ano needed the truck for going cocoing today, but it fell through the cracks, until I realized it yesterday evening, after potting up bamboo. I had offered to help, but the next morning, so I just after waking up, I jumped into helping Ano and Robert to unload the mulch in the new area that I had just cleared for it a few days ago. When that was done, I took a shower, then I went the Landing to make my superfood fire coffee.

It's now just after 12:30PM, so a great time to end this post, so that I can get to my few important Hive tasks, before doing a little more focused body and energy work on Robert. After I work with him, I'll go strain out and blend kefir, maybe take more photos for these post, and then get into land work. I deeply appreciate y'all so very much! Until tomorrow's incarnation of this post! Always forward, onward, and upward, joyfully together! 😁 🙏 💚 ✨ 🤙

2024 Life Goals

1.) Heal my broken heart, reignite my heart sun, and embody a solid, healthy masculine, allowing my electric fire to shine bright, no matter what others, especially women, say or do. 

2.) Bring myself and my life back into balance, integration, and wholeness. 

3.) Do regular (naked) integral practices again, alone or with others. 

4.) Dance regularly again.

5.) Work with natural entheogens (mushrooms, ganja, ayahuasca), with punctuated regularity, as a part of my healing process again. 

 6.) Get, and keep, regular deep, integral energy-body-tantric work healing sessions for women flowing again.

7.) Prepare regular batches of my medicinal teas collected from the land again. 

8.) Make my plant nursery beautiful again.

9.) Live as an integral part of a juicy heart-resonant soul tribe community, with deep, coherent mutual and shared passion, purpose, mission, love, warmth care, sweetness, reverence, respect, aliveness, admiration, excitement, enjoyment, playfulness, work, fun, laughter, attraction, and all-level connections and relationships. 

10.) Make love with the woman, or the women, that I love, every day, as a sacred devotional practice. 

11.) Begin learning relevant coding/programming languages to more fully contribute to the sovereignty-driven technologies where I am active, like Arch Linux, Hive, Qortal, DeSo, and Bastyon.

Great to see a post from you again ☺️ hope your well? I think you’re right about the hbd being pegged to the dollar. I think the dollar is certainly in trouble at the moment according to the reports anyway. So I think btc could be a good option the only thing is it’s highly volatile. I love your life goals. It sounds like you have a loving warm caring community there and I’d love to be in a community like that. It sounds so peaceful.

It's wonderful to hear that you appreciate my posts! Thank you, and very likewise! I'm doing reasonably well.

Yep, the fiat US Dollar is near its end I would say, which is going to be a bit of a bugger. Yeah, BTC's volatility would make it a challenging peg. Even gold can have wide swings. I'm still letting this percolate for a while, to see if another option comes to mind.

I'm really happy to hear that you appreciate my 2024 Life Goals! I have to give several more focus again!

GaiaYoga Gardens is an amazing place, and I'm super grateful to be able to live where and how I do, but it also very challenging as well, and for multiple reasons. Even with those challenges, however, I am still living closer to how I actually want to live than ever before in my life. There are very kind people here, though we're still working on the warm, loving, and caring part on a consist basis. It certainly can be very peaceful here, which is something that I very much love.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts with me! I really appreciate it! 😁 🙏 💚 ✨ 🤙

Great to hear your doing well! Yeah I really do appreciate your life goals I think you have some great goals and your aiming for what makes you happy and what you want out of life. I did check out gaiayoga gardens it looks an amazing place. I would love to have a residency there but I live in the UK. So it would be very difficult. Would love to hear your stories there and your challenges if you were willing to share. People certainly make a difference to a place and if they are kind loving warm peaceful people it makes a place. Hope your having a great day kind regards Adam

Thank you very much for that! With my goals I wanted to be authentic and to choose what was truly most meaningful to me.

It's great to hear that you took a peek at the website! It needs a lot of updates! I understand about the challenges of coming here from the UK, but we do get Europeans here quite often, so I know it is possible.

I'm open to sharing anything you'd like to know. It's truly another world here. I share quite a bit in my daily posts, here and there. The biggest challenges for me are fulfilling long-term human relationships, or a lack thereof, and keeping the jungle from eating everything.

Oh my goodness yes do people make a huge difference in a place, and they do make a place! I'm very sensitive to the people around me, so having people around me with whom I vibe is very important to me.

Many thanks again, Adam! It was a mellow, sunny Sunday here in the jungle! I hope that your start to the new week is a lovely one! 😁 🙏 💚 ✨ 🤙

Hi it’s great that you have chosen goals in what you truly want and being your authentic self. Life’s too short in my opinion to not be. Yeah I would love to see any updates to the website. I feel in the future that in the future it would be great for me to live somewhere like there or even an equivalent here in the uk. For me I would find the financial side a bit of a struggle so I would love to have a good chunk in savings with hbd paying me 20 percent a month giving me passive income to achieve freedom and live in nature. I wouldn’t need much just food and the wildlife and good company around me that’s why I feel the yoga gardens would be great. I’m quite the same I kinda sensitive around people and it’s amazing how one bad apple can really change the atmosphere. Is finding a relationship a challenge as in people arrive as couples or are there a lot of people single and really open and affectionate and be a resident for a while then move on to somewhere else? Sorry for all the questions. It does sound an amazing place and looking from the website it looks so relaxing. I’ve had a good day thanks I’ve been out in the fresh air feel the wind through hair the sun on my face. I certainly would love to be at the beach on a day like this hear the waves crashing and the sand in your feet

Indeed, and I very much agree with that, it is essential to live authentically, otherwise true fulfillment is impossible. So much of what most people call 'society' is based around the opposite.

Put attention and energy in the direction that excites you. You could definitely make living like this happen, either here or where you are now. People are forming communities everywhere now.

That's one of the main reasons that I've put my focus on growing my HBD in Savings as quickly and as much as I can. At 120,000 HBD, the montou interest would be 2,000 HBD. That is far beyond what I need to live here. I also don't need much, far less now than at any previous point in my life.

You said it about people. Individuals can dramatically affect the energy and vibe of a place, either for positive or negative.

As to relationships, there are multiple aspects to it. Many people pass through this place, often of a younger persuasion, appearing and staying for a while, then they leave, on to other adventures. Very few people stay here. Since my breakup with my last girlfriend almost two years ago, I've mostly just stayed in the jungle, not going out to be social at all, so I really oniy meet people that come here.

I don't mind your questions or curiosity at all, no worries! Yes, it truly is an amazing place, like nowhere else on earth. That's why I choose to live here. Whether it's relaxing or not depends on the day...lol!

That's excellent to hear that you got outside in the air and sun for a while! That's so good for us! I'm glad that you had such a lovely day! All the beaches in this part of the Island are black sand, which is pulverized lava. 😁 🙏 💚 ✨ 🤙

Ah sorry to hear about your break up that must of been a difficult time for you.
I don’t really go out much either to socialise I used too. However i feel the world is really changing and I want to be in a place where I really feel comfortable. It sounds like you’re looking to meet people in your happy place on the island. I totally get that as I’m similar.
I can understand about people staying for a while at the island I think there maybe seeing if it is for them. So there getting a kinda taste for it. How are your goals towards your hbd savings? What tokens/shares are you invested in? I’m invested in the hive drip on this blockchain and compounding the tokens earned through staking. I love that it pays out daily hive. So I’m trying to build up enough hive daily to live off that’s my goal. I currently only have 78 drip tokens I’m aiming for 500 by the end of the year. Through trading blogging and restating. How do you live out there do you work or live off savings? Hope you have a blessed great day
