Show Me

When I dare to be powerful.. to use my strength in the service of my vision.. then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid.

Audre Lord

Show me is an image I painted it in a bout of intuitive painting that lasted a few years and taught me a lot. It was in 2011, in the early years following my being spit out of the mainstream livelihood opportunity when my perspective and values ran out of air and my inner being ran out of strength to continue.

I wasn’t pregnant at the time, but I was the mother of two and they were in their final years at home. There were a number of young mothers or women who were preparing to become mothers in my social circle, and also a lot of people in the work of remaking themselves to live here in the plane differently.

This painting depicts something in the belly that is gestating in preparation for birth, whether it be a baby, an idea, or the self again. It acknowledges that life happens in a spectrum of light and colour, going around a spiral into the unknown.

It affirms attention and intuition as we embrace our lives and step into it without over-thinking or controlling it.

Show me is a surrender to all that is good and loving and beautiful for the life within. It takes a load off, to me; activating a returning to instinct, intuition and faith in outcomes of great loving potential.

Blessings for your day! I, for one, am feeling much relief today after a very tense transit. I hope you can feel it too. ~p

Wild & Wyrd: Cartographer’s Log, 01-04-23 Heartbeat Time

This is a personal share from me to my companions in this evolutionary work held in the circle of care that is becoming wild & salty healing company. 

I’m really having fun these past few days.  Every day is feeling better than the one before.  I am synchronizing both inner and outer activities and processes quite well.  My heart is returning to its healthy states of strength, clarity, fullness and receptivity as described in the healer chapter of The Four Fold Way. 

I walked through an annual pattern of entering a dark night of the soul about 3 weeks back, and during that inbreath I closed up.  I spent a couple of days in my head, like I’d been run up the flagpole again, my nervous system was very agitated, nothing felt good.  But I didn’t hang there overlong.  I had one uncomfortable conversation with a safe friend in the middle of it that is still in process of settling itself in my being.  Other than that, it was pretty peaceful if not a pleasure walk. It’s amazing what you can release when you let go of positivity and everything else to do the little dances with the dark that come around, embedded in the pathway for all souls.

While I’ve been going into, experiencing and coming out of the dark night, I have added a discovery expedition into Human Design to my purification tool box.  I’m having lots of worthy conversations– deep, wide– and managing to weave it all together while practicing the elements embedded in the wild & salty maps of natural and village intelligence.  

My personal experimenting with the maps of natural and village intelligence feel to be working working – as in I am testing the maps and having my experience with them (that part works) AND changes of the kind they are intended to inspire are happening in me and in my relationships (the part that works works!).  I’m noticing that most of my fuel and capacity of character arises through a practice of embodying compassion and trust that is healing and feeling more natural again.  Gravity and veracity are felt, and they feel good.

HD says I’m a generator with a life purpose to shock people who are ready to change and need a nudge.  In my family and family venture reading, my placement is mostly as an implementer, with a smaller contribution to marketing on the side.  I can’t even begin to tell you how many burdens I’ve dropped by having this new way of looking at myself and in relationship to my man Rick and our children, to my livelihood and to the world. 

There are many habits that drain me in relational ventures; and perhaps especially livelihood ventures, in the ways we’ve been programmed for in the world we are leaving behind. 

It is coming  more clear to me through innerstanding my personal human design how I’ve been co-creating it into something it isn’t and slowing myself down.  I’m seeing better how to choose my personal liberation full on with honour and dignity and serve from there in great placement and to generative effect. 

Those of you who know me know that I’ve got a long time into the deprogramming and reclaiming – rewilding is how I feel it most palpably and pleasurably. I’m not sucking HD up through desperation or blind following, I am not prone to worship much anymore, never really was. Rather I innertake new subjects as explorations and this one feels both desirable and a little passionate. It’s fun! It’s been quite awhile since I felt like this, so happy to be learning and expanding again. 

Last night I wrote a little diddy.  I think it relays my mood and my implementer vibe, which in a more feral village form interpretation, feels like cartography, chemistry and choreography to me.   Much love!

Wild & Wyrd Ramble: The Greatest Lie Ever Told 03-21-2023

This ramble covers a lot of territory….awakening characters like Jacqueline Hobbs and Jason Breshears, Human Design are three topics I touch upon. I also plug Natural & Village Intelligence Camp and end with my thoughts about the greatest lie ever told. Let me know what you think of my sharing like this and what the ramble contains if you got a minute. It felt pretty natural. Takk ska da ha. Thank you for what you are doing. ~p

Natural & Village Intelligence Camp Introduction & Primer

We came to replace a group of masters I’m now coining the DOP – the Dirty Old Perverts.

And we’re up. But holy shit we’re bad at relationships and dreaming life into being for ourselves and each other.

This article includes a link to an hour-long introduction to Natural & Village Intelligence Camp by me, Patti Lindgren of Wild & Salty Healing Company. It is also the first lesson, An Engaging Scenario, offered freely for anyone to take in, ponder and even practice whether you enter the camp as a formal participant or not.

While the NVIC primer lesson is jam-packed with helpful material that should feel like medicine immediately, and that you can take up solo from here….

As one has spent 15 years in a primarily solo practice of these very potent maps to sanity and generativity, some good company as a participant in the camp in community will make your study and practice much smoother, fun and fruitful.

The camp will help you bridge yourself into partnership with others in ways that work for everyone. Beautiful organic co-creations of all kinds can then erupt and emerge continuously because we’ve been learning and building a village together grounded in relationship, authenticity, responsibility and ingenuity. then sharing the good news and ways at home.

When we engage intentionally with others in the deeper work of this naturalizing time – illuminating the shadow with light, reconnecting with the natural world, learning how to enjoy, relate, connect and create with others in a relaxed and practiced way, life gets better and better, every day.

This grandmother is walking away from all of the deception and violence. I know that earth life supports the materialization of what people carry for images in our heads and love in our hearts. I choose the images of love and look forward to meeting you somewhere along the way.

I hope you enjoy the introduction and primer. Get a cuppa something, find a comfy place without interruptions. Press play.

Much love, ~p

Emergence, Cartographer’s Log Star Date 07-02-2023

I’ve been working on producing a recorded introduction to Natural & Village Intelligence Camp for a couple of weeks. I’ve spent 15 years getting ready for this. I feel ready for this. And yet this process of making a down to earth video with the tools and assistance I have is challenging, often like pushing a boulder uphill. In preparing this recording I have been met by a series of gremlins, so it feels. I make a little headway, come to a halt, reflect, digest and carry on. Same thing happens again.

Emergence is a teacher, that’s for sure. This morning I sat down to record the presentation AGAIN, and the power promptly went out. So for awhile I sat in the dark. And then went for a headlamp, found a lighter, lit a candle, and wrote this to make the best of the silence and absence of dirty electricity, to hear myself, ground myself and to centre in ‘the work.’


Calm, centered, helpful, interesting, productive, grateful, understanding, practicing elderhood.

Not inflamed or inflammatory, still surprising.
Not timid, ashamed, making excuses, spinning veils.
Not in competition, not to be taught, fixed or treated like an NPC in someone else’s game.

To see it, I must believe it, be it, be.

It’s time. Again. For leveling up. No big deal. Just is. This is life.

In motion – active – centered, discerning,
Intentional – intuitive, in spirit, in service.

Breaking free is an inside job.
Not here to escape or to save.
Not here to control, bribe, blackmail or take in any way, shape or form.
Just here to be Patti, mom to M & K, grandmother to O, mate to R and Familiar to dog and to cat.

To be a neighbour, friend and companion worth her salt.

Here to LOVE, to contribute, enjoy myself and create.
Not here to ignore all that is askew in relationship, health, community and authentication.

Not here to say ‘yes’ when I mean ‘no.’
Not here to be positive or negative.
Here to exchange in the change.

Empathy growing in my growing empathic self
Ever growing, in fact / never ending / as I navigate for myself as myself

Hoping to enhance a little the life in all that lives
As I move about.

The Four Fold Way

Working with the Four Fold Way is a unique experience for everyone. In this article I’m going to tell you about my relationship with it as a way to demonstrate how it might become a helper to you in your life of remembering, reviving and re-calibrating your integrity, authenticity, heart and power.

This book came to me at a time in my life as I was beginning to experience big disillusionments with the way society is organized, the matrix of belief and agreement within it, the behaviors and states of being it spawns in people, my own condition and my personal walk through the middle of it.

Most people find books and then take them up. In my case it seems like the book found me and took me up. It was my own speech, in particular the terms big medicine and original medicine, that triggered a social worker who knew it to say, “You must be a student of The Four Fold Way.” To which I replied, “What’s that?” Needless to say I got myself a copy of it in short order. Within its pages I found a mirror of me that was nothing like anything I had ever encountered before.

In my livelihood adventures there were a few aspects about my presence and contributions that were appreciated more than others: my authenticity, my creative abilities, and my ways of seeing and sense-making. Not everyone appreciated these abilities, but many did and some would ask if I could teach them to be more like I was. I was stupefied by the request for I couldn’t fathom how I could teach anyone the aspects of my self that were automatic for me.

When I read The Four Fold Way I saw myself in its mirror and understood that my default way of operating was more feral than domesticated, and that what some people appreciated about me and/or desired for themselves was a more natural, empowered and flexible state of being. I see now what I couldn’t see then: many–maybe even most–people in western culture today have been subjected to conditioning via systems and worldviews that mute and overwrite aspects of natural intelligence (NI). This imposter intelligence (II) acts against authenticity, natural four-body health and right living. It makes us unwell. We move into states of being closed, negative, self-deprecating, stingy, competitive, controlling, dramatic, performative or invisible, to name a few. We become unable to discern authenticity from performance and deception to claim our own lifeforce and responsibility to self-author, rely and propel.

Some of the shadow states and patterns I mentioned are natural process of learning and growing up. Embedded sneakily within these states and patterns is the imposter intellect, which amps them up and likes to keep them in place.

When we take on too much II, we become fragmented, confused, lose power, develop illness in our mental, spiritual, emotional and physical bodies and become easy to take from, direct and control. With NI we are immortal independent beings of great power and creativity. NI is the most effective remedy to II, in my opinion, for it doesn’t just bring us closer to our original blueprint and capacity, it spreads through our relations and vocations and into our communities. It is the original operating system for life.

The Four Fold Way is based in Angeles’ research and comparisons of cultures we know today as indigenous. Indigenous cultures are based in natural intelligence. You could call this book natural intelligence psychology, relevant, relatable and alive. It’s very different from modern psychology which is contaminated with imposter intelligence.

If we are human we are indigenous to earth and capable of recalling and operating organically. It isn’t easy, as many of us well know, but surely as the morning turns into afternoon and evening and night, we too are advancing and expanding, finding our way around the wheel in spiralling fashion, on our way home.

Angeles focuses on the person in her book. And from that basis the one engaging can enter into their personal recalibration home to NI with more confidence. Her content and suggestions are whole body – mental, emotional, spiritual and physical. She teaches us about four human resources inherent with us: power, vision, love and wisdom, illuminating their healthy expression and shadow expressions as well as suggesting tools we can use to clear ourselves and stand better in our own power, genius and personal authority.

What this book can trigger, illuminate and support is the heart, soul, needs and abilities in the body and life any reader. It helps us find our way back to a healthy natural state of psyche to become a potent creator and relater in the plane.

I’ve been traveling with this book as my personal reclamation companion for almost 15 years. When I found it I was in turmoil about the state of community and our disconnect from organic life in the plane. What it did for me creatively and vocationally speaking was inspire many diagrams of how the energy and chemistry of these four resources and their corresponding archetypes are a way to focus and flow in creative process and be expressed as architecture and alchemist for community health, where co-operation is easy and opportunity and responsibility are shared. Or, as I like to say, village intelligence.

I am now offering a Transformational Leadership Camp (TLC) for people who want take that full picture in and become forces of nature helping to build bridges between worlds.

Angeles Arrien, born in 1940 in Spain among the Basque people, dropped her robes and left the plane in 2014 in the US. She was an cultural anthropologist and author who embodied the healthy expressions of the four human resources of power, vision, love and wisdom she teaches in this book.

Below I have included two relatively short videos of Angeles sharing the work directly. And also, you can follow this link to read a tribute to her written by her protege Patrick O’Neill if you’d like to learn more about this lovely and intelligent woman of heart and spirit from someone who knew her exceptionally well.

If you want to buy the book, please try to get it from a local seller first. What we need in our economy now are strong local markets where our neighbours and collaborators are benefiting from the ways that we go about life.

The Free & Healthy State of TITLI

This is an honest and passionate call in the moment to the wayshowers of nature’s paradigm, natural leaders, healers, sages and visionaries who were born to naturalize.

Turtle Island Leadership Initiative is an offering of Wild & Salty Healing Company to the people in the world with an intention to help with organizing ourselves into communities with natural agreements for good relationships that generate health and vitality for all who occupy them: a free and healthy state, which is meant more in the meaning of how we are, be and do, but can also fill the shoes of state in the meaning of governance and sovereignty.

TITLI for an acronym makes me laugh for how well it relays the essence of the maternal in our nature. It helps to bring balance by correcting the status of the feminine in our construct, the negative pole of our battery, to lead us home to nature’s organic schematic for living in the earth plane. Like manna from the boob.

Have no fear masculine: your strength, your reasoning, your impulses to protect, provide and build are as needed and desired as everything else. In the battery you are on the positive end,

Grandmothers and grandfathers have a special and important place in TITLI, also mothers and fathers, and young adults. Infants and children are paramount.

Welcoming the feminine into equal partnership is foundational to healthy birth and nourishment, essential organic living, as you will experience firsthand if you enter the maps of community.

For those who feel confused and beaten by the feminist deception and the maladjusted condition of the feminine in our times, TITLI brings water and soup with the return of our true feminine wisdom, abilities and creating power. TITLI ‘authorizes’ the healthy feminine essence frequency within our Creation without the shadows of the beaten femme who asks for permission, is pushy, whiny and might even be crusading with her bare nipples pointing at you accusingly.

And for those who feel confused and beaten by the maladjusted condition of the masculine in our times, TITLI also brings a return to our true masculine frequency without the arrogance, deafness, anger, aggression and domination.

TITLI is a return to the natural intelligence of masculine and feminine energies converging to create partnerships, people, innovations and communities. It is welcoming, appreciative, wise and clever to my felt sensory perception.

And now I will step up onto the soapbox with a bit of a speech that might feel full of rude announcements.

It is time to be clear with ourselves that true and benevolent leadership is needed if our children are to continue and thrive as human beings and not biological instruments of artificial intelligence. If not us, then who? If not now, then when?

We must clarify what leadership is for ourselves, innerstanding that it is not a title, a road to fame or a position to worship and tithe voluntarily or by coercion at the alters of church, government and political rallies while under a spell. We must gno (to mean know, from gnosis) that leadership is not an act of sacrificing ourselves at the alter of ruthless artificial intelligence for the sake of ego through fame and martyrdom.

Leadership is not a message heard on TV or out of the mouth of a prime minister, premier, president, senator, congressman or candidate. Nor does it come from dictators, emperors, the priests or the gods. Not even the experts. Leadership is us accepting responsibility for our share of good thinking, relations and activities that make the world. It is us making economies out of life over fiat, and doing so with great natural wise and artistic competence.

Turtle Island is the name the original people called North America before it was colonized by the British monarchy at the behest of the Vatican. Some various and sundry bit players of self-proclaimed high esteem, indentured servants and slaves aided in the occupation that lives on.

In a Free State of TITLI, we anchor with an old name for our place, pre-present-day colony, to remind us that we live with and because of the water and the land. We also honour those who are still descending from the people living in more organic times who can still feel and live their connection to nature and nature’s intelligence for good relationship with all life.

The TITLI concept also connects us to our place on the place in the here and now regardless of how or when we came to reside, how long we’ve occupied the terrain, or from where we came. We are leaning into truth, an act of daring that honours ourselves, each other, the water and the land and the world we make together.

What counts is our wisdom, our love, our sight and the ways we use personal power as the fuel in the engine of community that generates more life. Syntropic creation – synergy, creativity, juvenation – v. entropic creation–which is the scheme we’re in and the downward spiral that keeps us and this place attuning to hell.

Together we sit in circle, facing each other, having the conversations we need to have to reconfigure our methods of living together in a way that aligns with for health in land, water and life itself to returnus to natural vitality, abundance and joy for all. We organize into smaller groups of natural order based in biological sex, life phase, interests, abilities and for special projects. This is nature’s way of governing, and also commonly referred to here as village intelligence.

If you don’t live on Turtle Island , the concept belongs to earth and is fully transferable to other masses of land. I chose Turtle Island because I live right between the shoulders on the turtle’s back and it is with this land place that I come to be able to articulate the geometry for naturally fruitful chemistry among people.

What I say now may feel harsh to some, for my view on what we’re experiencing today feels threatening to the sense of security many of us have cobbled together in this life. For others it will land like music. Together we’ll work it out.

What we see in the world for management of common affairs today is an expression of artificial intelligence that works well for the money and materially interested, but is not an indication of enlightened natural leadership on behalf of the all. It is an entropic scheme that lives by sucking the natural life out of the plane. It is a parasite and predator — and it’s time in occupation is done. Nature is returning.

This phenomena is bigger than any of us and embedded in our planetary DNA, rising from within. A natural intelligence concept that is very useful is to ride the horse in the direction it’s going which means it’s easier to hop on and adapt with wild nature than to resist.

What we call leadership today is a sham, 100%. It is a violent act of control, constantly attempting and usually succeeding to overpower and take from each individual their personal agency, responsibility, creativity, land base, labour, affection, dignity, living wealth, and even our children and life itself.

Deception and violence is the modus operandi of a few well-organized individuals with psychopathic frequencies and self-awarded licenses to counterfeit currency and government. They fill off-shore bank accounts with the fiat spoils of their greed amassed by cleverly embedding themselves as benefactors to humanity and life in a long and increasingly obvious scheme of falsity.

It’s a performance. Theatre. An old-fashioned spell that works because those who have cast it know the technology of this plane of existence we occupy and it manifests material and temporal experience.

When we fall into it the illusion we give our liberty, license and responsibility over – our personal power – because we are living in the land of the spellcast and are unable to discern with natural intellect very well. It lives on within us, but becomes buried in the fallout from service the land of illusion – false images by false gods.

It loses all of its power when people stop feeding it. We are indeed capable of mind over matter reclamations. Many of us, even those in the awakening team, such as we are, have not yet recognized just how far the programs go and how we continue to emulate them. I am noticing that a trend lately seems to be about purifying the confusion among the awakening team so that we can become teams of brilliance out of reconciling our tensions.

And so, as the rampage of deception and attack we are presently living in triggers evermore the innocent within, makes us more aware of our status as colonized slaves groomed from birth and causes us to look, we end up looking closer, and closer, and closer over and again. In the company of the triggered innocent is the returning feminine wisdom living in the geomantic layer under our feet. Together we are the awakening.

We are in many states and stages of this shifting, this unwinding of spells cast, this release of belief and expectation fashioned by murderers and thieves–soul suckers who ride on the coattails of the naturally creative and powerful, we, the human family, of all shades, looks and locales.

In this arc of our phase of remembering we live in the chaos, a good part being the acts of undoing some spells and clinging to others. In many ways it’s like we’re driving with the brakes on individually, and also collectively as the memes and the themes of the spell torment us.

It is weary making….its sounds, sights, smells and feelings all messy among us.

Concurrently clear-sighted wayshowers are already here and there are many topics known to us to connect around that will be preferred by those who seek peace, opportunity and wellness in nature’s ways. These topics live around concepts of beauty, freedom, safety and nourishment that generate healthy mental, emotional, spiritual and physical states in those who come. These are the conversations in a free and healthy state of TITLI.

TITLI is a very emerging initiative. We have maps, a simple method for conversation and topic ideas to fan authentic fires of human creativity, holding space. The initiative is ready to be populated with its wayshowers now, people who will come with delight to test it all in action, practice the ways and improve upon them while bringing their authentic contribution from home.

By sharing our stories, learnings and imaginations with one another, we trigger the new community, society and economy and living earth web of connection in good time and relationship.

Leadership can and should be a skill and contribution that each of us takes our own share of personal responsibility for in the areas of our abilities, interests and local marketplace needs. My parents taught me this as ‘leading by example.’ It’s the gentle way of nature. To influence, be and do in good frequency match, and the rest takes cares of itself. To push and steer with power lauded over others is abuse.

Preparation and practice begins in the beginning and continues life long. How we conceive, birth, treat, teach and empower our children of natural genius is the living lesson that carries all ages through this turning of the dial.

This nest of living conversations and relationship agreements should stir the hearts of every woman and man who is or feels the impulse and desire to a great mother, father, elder or genius. It should stir the heart of any soul who feels they did not receive what they needed when they were small to be strong and vital now. And it most certainly stirs the soul of the infant and child, for the whole community is designed for a warm welcoming, an openness to receive, safe and interesting passage and limitless natural genius experiencing.

So here we go, eh? We’re all looking for ropes in common to hang onto for living our gift to the shift. We are protecting our sovereignty, looking for places where our voices are welcome and heard. We are thirsty and hungry for soul food and have energy to give and life into this shift.

I feel like a free and healthy state of TITLI is a response to all of these needs nature’s way. It fits everyone, absolutely adores individuality and personal strength, generates more life and makes for a smashing beauty of a terrarium.

I hope to meet you somewhere in life with the maps. Ho. ~Patti

Natural Intelligence

We are natural creatures of natural intellect and ability. To maintain a connection to these resources being in nature must be part of our everyday. 

Not imbibing in nature and movement therein, not appreciating the sights and sounds and smells and feels of the natural world is the absence of the essential nourishment that makes it impossible to evolve in the place of our embodiment here in life with the gifts we possess and the ones that nature here provides. 

When we spend time with nature every day we grow healthier and more intelligent every day.  When we do not, we decline. 

Children especially must spend as much time as possible, first introduced to, guided in, then as they desire, learning in and about nature’s power and wisdom as life.  This will assure their wellbeing and self-sufficiency for life and support them into sage states with ease.

Any person we consort with as close friend or partner in anything should also be a nature person or we will be continually accompanied by the drag of death and remain in at least partly in hell. 

Nature will heal the hard part of any ailment to the point where our own self-restorative ability is activated to reign the self from within.  Nature answers all questions.  Nature organizes to materialize that which occupies our dreaming about life, our love and is embodied in the choices we make to walk thereto. 

Nature is the energy and ability of organic life in this terrarium, including us. 

Nature is us.  We are nature.  We of the human family are animals in nature, nature in animals. We are life. 

If you are hating on your personal humanity and the humanity in other humans in any way shape or form you are contributing your creating powers to the ones who organize all suffering.  Hating on humanity is their frequency, their habit, their violation of organic life and theft of lifeforce. 

Check your self talk and your movements. Check your causes, check your liveilihoods and all houses of worship in any flavour.  Feel for the integrity of a natural world with feminine and masculine frequencies broadcasting and co-creating health.  Notice where your own light is false light, with images of virtue performed.

Decline all offers of employment, paid or voluntary, in the trade of hate and artificiality.

Watch closely fellow traveler. Be prepared to release some and many things you’ve held fiercely in belief as worth, for their offers come out of the mouths of the kind of characters who are elevated with images and words casting spells about credibility, accountability, authority, benevolence and specialdom. 

Show up, pay attention and feel what you’re meeting. Reflect. Be in nature for at least an hour each day. Refine. Resolve.

Nature has a compass in you.  Feel within yourself to reconnect, trust it and use it. 

Much love fellow travelers,
May you make much love and wisdom on the road.

Opening to Receive Collaborators

For building this bridge while we travel it, navigating in planes by instinct. 

Well hello there.  To the few subscribers already here, much is changing in the Wild & Salty space. I have been reconfiguring and preparing to share the curriculum and company that this vision is being born for. I have changed a lot on the pages of the website and whether you’ve seen it or not, you might want to have a look as you’re already here as a subscriber, and I trust that means something.

This article is piece of the puzzle. Those who are interested in becoming a worker here are being led to it as a bit of a job posting. It paints a picture best I can as to the kind of help needed now for tasks to fly this natural earth vessel and also the soft build of people-y things to attract faculty, students and community.

It seemed like the logical thing for me to do to start was to craft a basic website that painted a good enough picture of the vision and get it to a point where it could be shared with others who are meant to find it. These are people advanced enough to become the faculty, the team, and the life in it all, setting good examples, animating the place, sharing the themes and ways of our natural intelligence in our dreaming, relating, organizing, and life making. 

I am no website programmer.  I am more of an artist and teacher, but I do have a project design and management background, and grew used to working with what little I’ve had for resources while traveling the turf of the non-profit sector and as a private sector change agent.  I can go far enough on my own to sketch the dream and architecture for beginning so that others at the edge of this change can feel the frequency and the dreaming.  And then it becomes a matter for other genies to join in and contribute to, for I am only here to do my part as a Mapmaker and Firestarter growing through experience into wisdom. 

As I play with articulating Wild & Salty using the website facility, I can feel organic life needs and dreams accumulating all around it.  A clever and artful helper or two to design and code an intuitive, ever-evolving and improving website will go an exceptionally long way to receiving this love and materializing together in the dream.  This will be a positive application of AI, to restart NI, which is timely, at the ready and worthy.

Necessary partners to website types are writers and networking media thinkers who can help articulate and disseminate offerings, presentations and news.

Also going a long way for turning out exponential impact will be the participation of people who are talented in the ways of moving resources, inviting them in and sharing them out fairly and fruitfully, so that Wild & Salty becomes an agent of natural economy that flows well and self-perpetuates, priming authentic desire and creativity for all souls well enough to answer their call to become water and soup and supportive energy for the rest. 

Also going a long way with things will be the people who love people, are talented in relationship, and who can be in the design with intuitive, loving and connecting vibes.  People who are curious and feel what people need when they arrive, helping them to find something to try, and supporting their journey like an ambassador.   You will also help with attracting faculty and content creation for Wild & Salty offerings in the round because of your intimate knowledge of what people are in need of and what remedies bring the most for health in all spheres.  You might even be a member of the faculty who offers something of your own as well.

Which brings me to producer types – people who would like to coordinate design and delivery of offerings by Wild & Salty faculty and team members, whether they be events, curriculum, networks, workshop materials, broadcasts or anything else.

As we build the architecture for a Wild & Salty Healing Company and community offering natural and village intelligence training and practice, natural mental health exercises and experiments in healthy naturally emerging community, the soul of the world will shine into the simulacrum, reflecting the living songs of earth. 

Does that sound corny?  Maybe, a little, but nonetheless, it feels true to me. 

If you are interested please send me an email introducing yourself as a person – where do you come from, what are you passionate about, what are you best at, how old are you, and what do you need for yourself these days in return for sharing your love.  If you can, please respond to one or more of the themes of present need described above.  If you have any questions for me, these should be included.  I will respond within a day or two when I’ve got the time to receive and communicate with the honour and respect you deserve.

In the meantime please latch on somewhere so that you can keep track of developments wherever and however it suits you best, whether on the Facebook page, the Youtube channel, the newsletter or registering for the weekly Imaginarium Dreamtime session on Sundays

The content will be thin for awhile, but it will start coming before November is out. This project is interesting, complex and voluminous for me at this time.  One foot in front of the other, I go, chipping away, chipping away.  It feels like I imagine sculpting does. 

Thank you! Ho.  Blessings.  I look forward to hearing from some of you soonish!

Ungooing the sacred and the divine

What if I told you to drop the goddess, drop the myth, drop the meditation, drop the yoga, drop the initiations, drop the performance, drop the virtue, drop the saving, drop the martyr, drop the victim, drop the judge, drop the hero, drop the genius, drop the urgency, drop the journey.  Drop it all. 

Pch-sheeew!  Hear it all go. 

Now drop the ageism, racism, sexism, feminism, genderism, socialism, capitalism, scientism and imperialism.  All the isms. Drop religion.  Drop politics.  Drop authority.  Drop expectations for your future.  Drop the white, the brown, the black, yellow and red. Drop the blue too, the violet and the indigo, the orange and the turquoise, and most certainly, drop the green. 

Pch-sheeeew!  Gonzo. 

Drop your enamorments and obsessions and attachments with anything and everything.  Just let it all go. 

Virtually all of it is programming by the controlling class.  And mostly it consumes your inner computation power and siphons your energy, depleting you and your opportunity to be a responsible and positive force in the world.  There are nuggets of truth in the underneath of the modern mental illness themes described. Pure knowledge and truths. Don’t worry. We’ll presence the immutables later. They’re not going anywhere.

Most of what we carry is junk these days and so for now, let the junk fall off. 

Let it go. 

Feel the unburdening. 

Pause now and give that a few moments to happen.  Breathe. Feel it leaving. Relax.

Feel your seat and your centre. 

When you’re ready, carry on. 

Years ago when I began to awaken I had a bolt of insight, so clean and so simple that it felt all in for my purposes as a contributor to life.  And then I spent a decade wandering the dark with my fancy new light, searching for my soul.  And while I was doing that I probably embodied every one of the patterns I’ve named above and the ones to follow as well.  I speak from experience, from the other side of letting go again, this time in 2022, which means something, yes it does.         

I’m now feeling back to where I began with the light.  Clear, inspired, a little amused, quite a bit more humble, interested in life again and with a tickle of desire I thought might be gone for good. 

My insight at the time included a list of related facets:

– we are off the course of nature
– masculine and feminine need to be cleansed and balanced
– structure is bad, causing all manner of dysfunctions (we need a chiropractic adjustment to our structure correct the flow of fluids and chi)
– nature and her cycles and powers are violently exploited and disdained
– people are animals in nature
– people are nature in animals
– truth is all that we have, everything else is illusion
– modernity and its systems are a mental construct
– change your mind, change the construct
– everything that manifests was first dreamt and there is a lag between the dreaming and the seeing
– every thought, feeling and action that comes from us is creating something
– pay attention for your impact always, always adapt
– when we add good, bad takes care of itself
– we all do the best we can with the tools we have at the time
– forgiveness is always a matter for the self
– my perspective is my perspective, nothing more and nothing less
– I am the captain of my own ship. 
– I alone am responsible for how I choose to use my power and abilities. 
– I choose my feelings, experiences and impact. 

There might be a you within that you who you perform for the world.  The one who cares about appearances, flaunts abundance of any kind, oversexualizes and dramatizes ordinary events no one really gives a fack about.  The one who teaches, advises, judges, chides and scorns.  The one who feels out of control and so feigns or attempts to claim control in place of self-mastery.  The one who is acting out the shortage of self-love within that makes us vulnerable as distracting pawns of the programmers. 

We are all brothers and sisters in humanity.  Some are plugged into a natural life as a full human being and some to an artificial source.  Many of us drift between worlds and some there fool ourselves into believing we are nature returning, but are still ball and chained by the old egoic archon, performing for attention, riding on coattails, wasting and slurping lifeforce from the plane. 

We are sacred and divine by original nature.  It is no big deal.  It just is. 

If you want to live in tune with the living world, then please do.  We need you. 
If you want to reduce consumption and emissions, then please do. Also do your research so you don’t waste any more loosh. 
If you want your vessel to be beautiful to look at and great to command, please continue, we need beauty and strength. 
If you need to have your needs met, then please, by all means, ask yourself what they are, listen and then call in what you need. Walk toward that which calls your name even and especially when it seems weird.
If you want to see better leadership in your area then please lead. 
If you want things to be different, then be different. 
If you feel starved intellectually start asking questions to uncover what you cannot see that is stimulating.
If you want people to respect you, respect yourself first and them as well. 
If you think you’re wise go visit and elder to see if you might be right. 
If you think you’re smart, then please, share your intelligence on the subjects you are best at and let’s see where that might lead.   
If you think you’re a better person then be a better person and forget about the rest. 

Stop competing.  Stop performing.  Stop showing off.  Stop blaming and shaming.  Stop looking for attention, permission and approval.  Stop needing a parent.  Stop being a slave.  Stop being afraid of life. 

Love yourself.  Be yourself.  Appreciate and be good to your familia in the way of you. 
Contribute good to the world by contributing your uniqueness for good in your communities.  Say no to theft, rape, murder and oppression. 

Romanticizing, hating, leveraging and ritualizing the sacred and the divine are all part of the program and a symptom of the program’s disconnecting powers.  Sacred and divine could be referred to as dreaming and wisdom. Simple stuff. Basic operational powers in a natural life. They are ripe to be un-gooed. 

Once we drop the programs and shake off their effects, true love and purity of innerstanding returns. 

Our job is not to be happier, prettier, skinnier, more virtuous or spiritual.  It’s not to save the world or oust the tyrants either. 

Our job is to reclaim our power, to stand tall as ourselves and lean in to co-operate our powers and abilities into systems and communities for the world that works with life. 

We came to cause more life, not take more life. To proliferate, not masterbate.

Do not look outside yourself for the leader, the witness, the experiencer or the saviour.  Do not push yourself on others. 

Natural dreaming and wisdom brings revival.  Forget the programs.  Remember nature instead. 

Blessings for the road.  ~p
