Inspiration and Change

Things are getting exciting here in Nashville, Tennessee. Both JJ and I feel the pace "quickening" for us.

Bobbi is finding more homes each day and has almost narrowed down on one in particular that she loves. We wish she would stay with us and enjoy life off-the-grid, she just declines. Perhaps she knows she'll be put to work again and in her soon to come retirement she is avoiding work at all costs.
JJ and I have seen many visions of what is to come for us, amazingly they are the same vision for both of us. Our direction and path is completely the same, how nice to feel the synchronicity of life.
We have spent hours upon hours talking, late into the nights, about where we see ourselves as soon as we are through with our job here. The world is changing so quickly and we feel that there is no more time for procrastination, the energy is pushing us forward, with purpose.

The weather is gloomy, and brisk so I spend many hours researching, studying, meditating, practicing yoga, and cooking with the fur babies (dogs).  Images and ideas are pouring into my head with vengeance, showing me where to look, what to do and how to do it all.
We are too excited for whats to come in all aspects of our life together and especially in the change that the world will soon feel.

Such inspiration has struck me again on getting things in order for the change we are going to feel. Mostly in positive ways. I don't have a fear of the world's change, I actually am looking forward to it, it is much needed and completely predicted from every culture that exists on this planet (even some that no longer exist). When the world changes it will stem from our economic collapse that will carry over to our food collapse and lead to our government collapse and then there will be us, the few who will rebuild it all again, in goodness, in unity, together with the earth.
I have felt it for many many years and wasn't really sure what I was meant to do about the upcoming change, until now. I have had so many ideas but didn't see them all coming together, I am seeing so much clearer now what my role is in it all. I see the big picture so clear and am being driven hard, JJ feels it too, we both laugh at how in tune we are with each other.

We know that our path together is one where we work side by side with nature in EVERY action. We will harvest the true spirit of our land (wherever it may be) and raise our family there in simplicity. I know that this is the example we are to be for the world or smaller, our families and loved ones.

I am sooo ready for the adventure and to live with nature and play with nature's rules, this is how I work best, this is what I understand most, this is who I am.  I am preparing myself here in Nashville getting more experience with my personal role in our life practicing;

new cooking tricks,

pressure cooking for speedy results, blending everything in my new Blend Tec Blender (making my own nut butters and sauces even),

stocking up on bulk grains and beans.

Trying to eat mostly raw to preserve the life force in our bodies, JJ even likes most of it. We have green smoothies every morning.

 I have even ordered all my organic garden seeds for this year and next year...just in case, these will be worth more than gold someday since we are having such a hard time stopping Monsanto from destroying our food (topic for another day),

and planning our methods for our garden; organic, aquaponics, biodynamics yada yada yada. You'll all ask us when you see its magic in action.

 I have been studing up on holistic health and therapies to use from nature that heal both mind (the ultimate hardest to control but the truest way to heal, completely) and spirit (balancing of energies), which both heal body, mixed with nourishing food, of course.

 I could go on and on and as things happen I will break down more and more detail for any who want to follow and learn. JJ and I live a life very close to nature and we will move closer and closer to that lifestyle the longer we share this life on the earth. The adventure is beginning, the knowledge has been acquired and now the action gets to take full-pace-ahead!

The New Year Is Here!

2012 A new year is here, we are given another new beginning.

I have found myself pondering the newness of my current life and the beauty that surrounds me. I am so very much in Love with a wonderful, respectful man who sees me for my true self. What a magnificent experience this is. True Love is the access to the Divinity of life and the universe. I am here...finally!

So, what should I work on in this new year, what kind of resolutions should I set for myself? I already try to not think to far into the future that I lose track of the moment I'm in, but I still like to have intent and goals without any attachment to those outcomes.
I sat,
I closed my eyes,
I looked within,
I saw...

all the different personalities I have been in my lifetime. All the stages of life have offered such awakenings to me and such moments of unconsciousness. I reflected on last year specifically, the year of 2011. I saw the Tarah of 2011 and all her accomplishments and her struggles. I must say that I am proud of her. She did many things that were challenging and it wasn't easy. She lived most of it alone, solo, as an independent woman. She expanded her business, she started teaching meditation to a valley that doesn't practice it much trained many people how to work with their animals and...
 she left all of that behind, including her dear family, friends and comforts of the mountains for her True Love.  She picked up enough belongings to fit in a small trailer, grabbed her dog and drove 3 days across the country to start on another chapter of life not knowing where this would lead her.
She also had many emotional struggles with her ego, her self worth, and what she truly deserves in this life. Sometimes even indulging in self destructive behaviors to overcome these moments of doubt. It wasn't the easiest road, she has a pattern of picking roads that are more challenging and more risky, perhaps this is the best way she learns and grows.

 Ok, I will stop talking in the third person now, but stepping outside myself to look back and see the "old" me that roamed the planet in 2011 has helped me see the last year for what it was, for who I was without holding any judgements about myself.
This way I can fully see what I needed to work on and who I want to be NOW and for the rest of 2012, the year of awakening. I truly believe that I have released any attachment to how the "old" Tarah functions. I know that I want to be very conscious of my each and every moment in this new year. I want to slow down my actions so that I am fully aware of how I speak, and to whom I am speaking. I want to see my movements become graceful and full of intent. I want to listen deeply to others and feel their emotions...not hold on to them, just to feel them, with them while we are in conversation, then to let go.  I want to live each day with Love filtering out of my body. I want to think the most positive thoughts and have all my actions and my lifestyle be nothing more than an example of how life could be lived, since we have endless options for life.
I want to wake up every morning next to the man of my dreams and feel utter gratitude for his presence and companionship in my life. I want to stay present and connected to him in every possible moment.

The year of awakening is here, I am ready and I am willing to be guided by the force of Divine Love!
