In harmony with nature

The individual can synchronise their life with nature.

Late June and the cherry trees are still yet to have ripe fruit.  I recognise that the climate is awry because everything is out of alignment, such as the UK cherry trees.  Most people fail to notice any of the natural patterns of nature because they are so separated from it.

It rains.  The cat runs inside, jumps on my seat, the warm secure shared space with me.  The cat is fully in harmony with nature.  When the rain stops, the cat will be outside again.  I know tonight the frogs and snails will be out in numbers, thus I am careful where I tread.

Yesterday was the Summer Solstice in Britain, the longest day.  Today marks the beginning of the slide into darkness and cold of winter.  I begin to think of preparing for winter.  I also mark my days by the moon cycles, I cut the lawn every new and full moon.  The last new moon, I decided to miss the cutting of the grass, because the growth of the grass had slowed and the clover were in bloom visited by hundreds of bees.

I have stopped feeding the birds, putting all the feeding stations in storage.  The summer and autumn are a time of abundance, and the nesting season is over.  I will begin again to feed the birds 1st November, the day that marks the first day of winter.

I no longer bother setting the alarm clock, I naturally wake up before 6am.  I tend to retire to bed before midnight, and mark time by the position and setting of the sun.

This weekend I will be going to a wild food fair to learn about bushcraft, foraging and making stone tools.

Bit by bit I work to live in harmony with nature, a gradual process.

Building a source of wisdom on the internet

I aim to build a site of wisdom on the internet in 2015.

Foxes love to eat an occasional chicken which is a nuisance for farmers, but place llamas in with a field of chickens and the llamas will protect the chickens from foxes and dogs. Simple solutions to problems by mixing together certain combinations of animal or plant is a wisdom few know about.

This Liberated Way blog promotes the idea of living in harmony with nature, and next year I shall go a stage further and build a web site to compliment Liberated Way as a source of wisdom for people who seriously seek ways to live in harmony with nature.

I have a domain and a hosting package for liberatedway.net, which is sitting doing nothing, so I am thinking of creating a type of Wikipedia of information of actions and solutions people have taken in the past that are proven by results to work in the goal of working with nature.

The internet is becoming a dung heap of poor quality information, ignorant opinion and irrelevant junk information so that people increasingly are finding it harder to find quality sources of information to their problems.

I constantly come across wonderful stories of solutions that work in relation to some of the common problems humanity faces, but nobody knows about them because they are lost in the noisy poorly indexed system of the internet.  Nature provides answers to every challenge humanity faces, but can we find them when we need to on the internet?

My approach is beautifully simple: define the problem; find solutions supported by results that proved the solution worked; index the problem and the solution that an internet user can easily find.  I feel a website of solutions to problems that involve working in harmony with nature would compliment this blog well in 2015.
