Back after one month unplugged from the matrix. My path and where Im at for 2019

in ecotrain •  16 days ago

My first post in nearly a month, what a journey it has been! Some of you will remember at the end of last year I was struggling with a lot of physical pain, and finally I took off to Puttaparthy 800Km away where I was treated physically and emotionally and enjoyed incredible support from My X-inlaws.. I then visited the Earthship Yoga Ashram in Rishikesh for the first time since it was completed. This was one my first Earthship workshops, that has now come to fruition and I joined Yogi Amitram for 11 days with a very small and intimate group of 4 people during a meditation retreat. It was food for the soul, and any remaining aches and pains were soothed into oblivion, despite the cold temperatures and uncomfortable bed.

Finally, to contrast this pure and beautiful experience I spent the last two weeks of 2018 in Goa visiting old friends including the infamous Steem poker No1 player @bubke. We all enjoyed CHristmas together at their new home, after they finally moved on from where I still live in Kodaikanal, India. We all finished the year at one of my favourite beaches and places in the world, Om Beach, Kudli, Gokarna. From freezing cold days and nights and simple satvic eating I shifted to roasting hot palm filled beaches, golden silky sand and warm playful seas. I ate the freshest fish, and met and spent time with some new faces from all around the world. A good party was also had in a spa behind the beach, including a huge pool and good DJ to make everything swing.

I had a very good time in all the ways possible, and am now back At Earthship Karuna pulling everything back together and making my plans for this new year.

During this past month i have been almost totally unplugged from the internet, and even quit Facebook totally, which wasn't hard.. I have also been absent from Steemit, and have basically unplugged myself from the internet and the world. This has been a process that has has been going on for some time, and right now I am in a very new place with myself and my relation to the world,. I have also made a shift in the way I wish to interact with it, and have this year decided to pull back from most of the things I used to do, and instead go inward. From the internet i am headed to the innernet.

Last year I have had my fare share of debates and even arguments on topics that I feel are really important. I have also spent hours and years of my life promoting sustainable building and living, always working hard to get the word out and encourage others to take a step in a new direction. What I have come to realise now is that I dont have to try to bring the changes in the world I need to see in the form of dialogue and the Internet and Steem etc. .. I now realise that I can reach everyone from the innernet, and through our grid of consciousness, because we are all connected.

So the changes I am making this year are very important to me, and will change the way I view the world and relate to it. I feel like I am now starting to witness, just watch it happen, from a distance. I no longer want to engage with the game that is life in the modern world. The real gifts that await me are inside. Inner peace is what I will discover now, and i believe I am finally ready to let go of everything so that I can find it. I have committed to meditating every day at 5:30am, and am going to just live a beautiful simple solitary lifestyle whilst I delve deep into the seas of my soul and see the world from the inside out. I dont need discussion or promotion, I dont want money, I dont want fame.. I just want to know the real truth and lives beyond ALL the bullshit and distraction i see around me.

SO, i wiill not be posting very much, but I will post when the feeling takes me, when I have something that I want to share. For the rest, Ill see you in dreamtime!

Have a beautiful 2019 all of my Steem family & friends!
i love you all!

I'm so inspired to hear this. Last year was so intense for many of us on the blockchain and many are taking steps to innerspace and pulling back from the online world, including myself. It's far healthier for our souls. Xxx Sounds like you are having a beautifully perfect time and I'm so happy for you. Hope we can catch up in person in India in 2020. Xx

yes! I know you understand,, and did you also just came back from a vippassana retreat? I hope it was just the medicine you needed!

have a beautiful year river!


Hi, I am new join to this great site. I and start my new journey in steemit but I have support all of you.

It's so nice to hear from you after such a long time. The EcoTrain QOTW is surely being missed. But I am glad that you could take this time out for your inward journey which is so very important for each one of us. You could stay away from all the gadgets I feel that's one type of freedom in itself. Your connection with India is beautiful and strong. Goa is a wonderful place for a holiday, you can totally destress yourself, music, dance and so much fun.
I am so jealous of you.....hehehe....just kidding.
I wish you a very pleasant 2019 with a renewed version of yourself.


thank you! i know, making up questions was embedded in my mind after so long.. it took me a while to stop thinking of them automatically! Now i think i am coming back to a better centre, slowly, step by step.. it takes a lot of persistance and effort to get on a new track and now i feel determined to do it ;-)

<3 lovely to hear from you

Welcome again @eco-alex. May you have a fruitful 2019. Nice to hear from you. Take care.

So nice to hear sounds perfect and i'm glad you've found some clarity and congratulation on quitting Facebook a massive feat, i've been clean for eight years now and it still feels liberating most of the time. Wishing you a prosperous 2019 I have a feeling this is going to be a massive year for everyone. Glad your back also as I have plans for a Earthship project in England; quite a way off yet but I am planting the seed. 💯🐒


thank you my friend! im happy to hear of your plans in the uk! Be sure to talk to Heidi at Earthship Sheppey who has just gone through the whole process for a major build.. now they have an official negative carbon footprint ;-) I also know quite a few great peeople in the UK that I connect you with when the time comes! Best of luck to you!


Great to hear it a blend of mental health recovery and other ideas still fine tuning but also saving for some land too. I check out Heidi too great to keep the connections going 💯🐒

Good to know this.. I am from North India and never been to Rishikesh now, as you mentioned it I am will to go there and want to feel the experience. T


yes, highly reccomended! Rishikesh is so special.. and also quite busy,.,. but may options are there..

Namaste eco-alex,

I like that phrase, "from internet to the innernet." Can relate to everything you are saying. Am still struggling to get to the innernet.

Blessed be.

I like yoga and it is good to maintain balance, consistency, legacy, and I'm glad you can help them out. Here is an upvote.

Sadu! Sadu! Sadu!
May you have a marvelous life of quiet, contemplation and full of peace and joy!
Isn't that a common practice in India - Sannyasa - the life stage of renunciation?
Good on you, that you made the break away.
I often stop to look and see if what I am doing is really valuable.
So much of my activity on the net was not.
I see value in gathering and keeping knowledge alive and easily accessible, such as that at the Natural Medicine community, so I am keeping that connection strong. I have other areas where I want to work, keeping knowledge alive too. Just need to watch out for all those distractions.
All the best to you in 2019!


you to9tally get it ;-)
