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! 😁🙏💚⚡💥🔥✴️✳️❇️👣🌱✨🤙

Warm greetings all! 😁🙏💚✨🤙

There are presently 40 whales (according to HiveBuzz) on the Hive Blockchain, which is an astoundingly small number when you consider that over a million Hive accounts have been created so far. Everyone begins as a Redfish, then becomes a Minnow somewhere around 600 HP, with every succeeding level (Dophin, Orca, and Whale) requiring ten times more Hive Power to attain. For me, who sits at 7,025.747 Hive Power, to get to Orca level, which presently begins between 57,757 and 58,404 HP, I need somewhere between 50,731.253 and 51,378.253 HP. To reach whale level, which presently begins between 555,727 and 593,768 HP, I would need between 548,701.253 and 586,742.253 HP. Yep, those numbers are wild, but I am absolutely determined, and I know that I will reach whale level. I can feel it.

While whale level is the near-mythical goal of every aspiring Hiver, which seems outright impossible at first glance, I'm here to tell you that it is absolutely possible to grow one's account from Redfish to Whale organically, though it will take a great deal of long-term focus, commitment, dedication, persistence, perseverance, determination, and tenacity to get there. It's possible on Hive, though, which is incredible. @arcange is an excellent example of that.

While it's natural to feel envy for people who have grown their Hive accounts to whale level, and to want to attract their attention with our posts, I say don't envy the Whales, rather become them! Hive needs a lot more whales! I'm working toward that every single day!

My intention with my new trading fund that I have on Hive Engine is grow it sufficiently to where it becomes possible to begin strongly fueling my growth on Hive, in both layer 1 (Hive Power and HBD in Savings) and layer 2 (diesel/liquidity pools and income tokens). My goal is to be able to do another massive powerup, like my powerup to dolphin level on the December 1st HPUD, but this time to Orca level. How quickly this comes, I cannot say, as it is dependent on how my Hive-Engine trading goes, but I don't believe that it will be far off! Then on to whale level...

Yesterday, Saturday, after wrapping up my Hive tasks, my friend Audrey, who is one of my regulars for sessions, came to pick me up, to go to a sensual massage workshop, as her partner. The workshop was 3-hours long, and very enjoyable. I usually give way, way, way more sessions or touch than I receive, so it was really nice to be able to do just that, receive. Everyone had a beautiful time at the workshop. One of the women who attended, Emily, is someone to whom I gave one previous session, before I moved out of Seaview. We lost contact after I moved back to GaiaYoga Gardens. After the workshop, Emily approached me to ask about scheduling another session, which we tentatively set for Friday. So I may have a session that day. Audrey had arranged to return with me to GaiaYoga Gardens after the workshop, as she'll be staying with us here out in the jungle until Friday. Audrey wants another session some time this week, too. Once we arrived at GaiaYoga, I showed her to the Bali Hut, where she'd be sleeping, and where the showers and washing machine were. After saying 'good night' to Audrey, I collected my jar of kefir from the Landing fridge, and headed back to the Flow House, to finally get into my evening round of Hive tasks, and catching up on my notifications. Because of my off-property adventure I started about 2 hours later than usual, so I finished up later than I would have liked, around 11:45PM. I tried to do a round on Waves, but I was too sleepy, so I went to bed just after 12:30AM. I woke up way later than expected, just before 9AM, curiously still feeling like I needed more sleep, doing a round of token management, beginning on this post, then getting out of bed to go make my superfood fire coffee.

It's now just before 12:30PM, so a marvelous time to end this post, so that I can get to my few important Hive tasks, before leaving the Flow House later in the afternoon, to first strain out and blend kefir, perhaps take more photos for these posts, and then land work. I deepiy appreciate y'all so very much! Until the next iteration of this post tomorrow! 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.

maybe you put the cart before the horse or I am wrong but I thought everyone started as a minnow, then came a redfish. I have no doubts about you making your goal of becoming an orca.
