what does it mean, it takes a village?
What does it mean, "It takes a village?"

Living on a kibbutz back in 1973-4 right after the October war I found myself in a situation that I think Guidance had always wanted me to have because it had come up in smaller ways in my life prior to and since that time, the experience of co-operative living. Now we're not talking 'ashram' here. Neither are we talking 'commune'. Nor are we talking 'free love and do as you please." The kibbutzim movement in Israel has pretty much died as the 'me' generation has grown up and taken over, and the New World Order's fragmentation of society has successfully driven us all (in cities particularly) into taking care of number one. Still, back in Israel in 1973, with a country still in its foundational time, people came together knowing that during difficult times and with limited resources working together for a common goal of survival and prosperity just made sense.

It's just as easy to make spaghetti for 12 as it is for 2 and the additional resources needed to heat the water etc bring the overall per capita cost down to just pennies. Our kibbutz was on the coast and right on the Lebanese border. It was considered a fairly wealthy kibbutz but this is because it worked so well. Every family had it's own dwelling inside the overall compound, but the children were raised together and parents had visiting rights or weekend privileges. There was a communal dining hall but you could always cook something personal at home any time you wanted a private moment. Work was divided up depending on specialties and everyone worked 6 days a week. Once a month you even gave up your day off to work in the kitchen or sometimes the whole kibbutz took that day to replant banana trees or something else that took a lot of manpower. Avocados, cotton, pineapples, lemons, oranges, turkeys were but a few of the things that were raised on this particular kibbutz. And then of course orange rinds from juicing were fed to the cattle and pigs and there was much cross-connection between the agricultural pursuits.

Volunteers came from every country around the world and for a while I was head of the volunteers because I had a work ethic that fit in with the Jewish settlers. Most of these volunteers were kids backpacking here or there and most were just in Israel for the experience and for a good time. Not many 'bought into' the principle of communal living as much as I did obviously as a way to prepare me for this time and the times to come. Those who 'bought in' to the bigger picture found the experience unique and enlightening and more fun than a barrel of monkeys. Even though we only got paid the equivalent of $1 a day, it didn't matter how hard the work was, it was living life to the fullest as very few people get to experience it.

On the day terrorists took over an elementary school a few miles down the road and killed 44 children, the entire kibbutz, indeed the entire country cried as one soul for everyone in Israel at that time had lost loved ones somewhere along the way to its foundation. The entire experience was that of living as a wave, not just an individual particle of Light and Sound. One did not IN ANY way lose themselves in the experience, nor was individuality sacrificed, but rather it was a uniting of all that individuality to make the sum total so much greater and more powerful that created a life experience FOR EVERYONE that was so rich and fulfilling it is very hard to duplicate.

Also in the early 70's I got to meet Eileen and Peter Caddy who had founded a place called Findhorn in Scotland. ( ) Eileen Caddy channeled/spoke with what she called 'God' and along with working with the devas and elementals of the land and of nature, they were able to start a community based on spiritual principles and working with nature and others around them. Living and working there is a commitment to following, not the principles of some guru or teacher or 'madman', but rather the greater principles of one's own spiritual Guidance that are interconnected with everyone else's. It is the height of individuality when followed perfectly and yet as is the true nature of Soul where there is only one soul and we are all simply pieces of it, the sum total of all the parts working in harmony together is supreme.

The New World Order fragments us in every possible way, in element of society now, particularly beginning in schools, because they know that this is the way to stop us all from using our innate powers to fight off their oppression and to cure their chaos from which they wish to impose their new system of controlled order.

It takes a village is so much more than just a way to survive the hard times that are now upon us all (except the NWO elite and their lackeys), it is a template for creating a new world paradigm for an entirely new return and upliftment of an old dimension, taking with us all of Creation in this corner of the SuperUniverse into a whole new brighter future, one where the roots of the darkside and the NWO will eventually be stamped out from every corner in which it tries to hide.

Wishing us all strength in the coming days, Peter
