The powerful truth about earthships vs the terrible lie of mortgages and owning your own home conventionally.

The Truth Will Set You Free
A wise man once said
Where is that wise man
And what did he mean?

Twisted fairy-tales of a material dream,
Hope fueled by the slim chance of success.
With the odds stacked against us all,
Is there any sense in debt?

A traditional home that costs the earth,
Is a vulnerable box, square and white,
Built to meet the eyes delight.
But on its own it is an empty shell,
Hungry, demanding and expensive.
A vulnerable box,
Of small proportions.
Paid for by loans and extortion,
And a life times sacrifice.

Bemused and convinced by the hypnotic State,
How many gave up their hopes and dreams,
For security that they could never make,
And for a dream that made of lies and deceit?

A great lie is that they care.
But the greatest lie is the one,
That we tell to ourselves.
Self delusion.
Their only need is greed.

There is no such thing as a free lunch,
Unless you plant some seeds.
There is no such thing as freedom,
Until you start to see,
Self Sufficiency.

You don't need money,
To pay for the sun,
To harvest the rain,
To grow your own food,
Or to have some fun.
What else do you need,
To Be Free?

Don't flush your freedom,
Don't believe they hype,
There is no sense in feeding,
This big brother tripe.

A wise man once said,
The best things in life are free.
Abundance has no demands or cost,
Just hold out your hands and receive.

Has your Earthship got a Home Biosgas system? It’s a great addition energy source plus free liquid fertilizer. Much better than composting.

It can be a great option, especially if you have enough waste materials to keep it going. I dont have one, i use normal gas cylinders where I am.. i dont think i have enough waste to power up my cooker but it is a great option if you do..

Love it @eco-alex! Didn't realize you were such a poet!
Thanks for opening eyes to the truth about the mortgages we tie ourselves into and the financial pressures folks put themselves under for that supposed security!
Thanks also for all you do to help show folks there is an alternative to have our needs for food and shelter met without becoming debt slaves!

thanks a lot! its not such a great poem really, my rhymes are quite haphazard, but im HAPPY you appreciate it! thanks for the Lovely comment xx

This is a great truth, the things that enrich life and the soul, have no price. Nature gives us all its finery: a sunrise on the beach, a colorful sunset, a starry night ... Laugh, share, love, make a connection with another being.
Coincidentally, we start from the same sentence: "The truth will set you free", perhaps because of the issue of "truth" and "lie", which are issues that have penetrated our psyche and, if we think about it, they have the same origin: the human reasoning that is as biased, which does not fail to inspire a certain mordantness.
Very well written. Regards, @eco-alex.

thank you so much! <3

Oh okay, I remember reading this. It must have gone over my head that it was part of the challenge. Very well done, by the way, as is the case for all your Earthship related posts you've published lately.

THANK YOU! so glad youve seen some of my biotecture drive,, been a bit of a mission this year! <3

Absolutely brilliant and so powerful.

There is no such thing as a free lunch,
Unless you plant some seeds.
There is no such thing as freedom,
Until you start to see,
Self Sufficiency.

So true
On a lighter note, I can never lie, my husband will immediately catch hold of me, but sometimes when it comes to my Son, I try to make up stories for him, you know that covering up for children types and my husband will understand, he will just laugh and close the matter then. And I enjoy these moments.
We should always have the courage to stand up for the truth.

xx <3 thank you dear!!!

"Abundance has no demands or cost,
Just hold out your hands and receive."

Just YES. Gifting from a full heart, receiving from a grateful heart.

Enjoyed your poetic self exposing the terrible lie of conventional home ownership. And the powerful truth that we have all we need to be abundant, comfortable, sheltered and well fed.

The truth can't put on shoes as fast as the lie goes around the world...

A funny, true Quote from my granny...

Good post, resteemed :)

YES, the truth always PISSES US OFF - with the lies we are told as a society to simple truths that force us to reassess our whole identity. Don't believe the hype! Love it.

I tell my children "whatever you do, do not borrow money." Their friends have been told the opposite by their parents, that a healthy financial portfolio contains something like 16% debt.
Great poem, excellent entry about a lie that has been used, in many cultures over the years in fact, to enslave people who even then believe they are free.

Excellent and powerful words...

That's really neat. An earthship would be quite the undertaking, and quite the reward.
