The Greatest Gift I Could Ever Give, or Hope to Give! A Gift That Can Not Be Bought Nor Paid For...steemCreated with Sketch.

The greatest gift I could ever give...


will be the gift I will give to my children! This gift is not a business, nor a bank account and trust fund. This gift is not a family legacy nor an image to uphold. This is a gift that cannot be bought nor paid for. The gift I will give my children will be a space of love on their own piece of mother earth.

A Space of love

A space of love where all the fruits and flowers, birds and bees are buzzing for them as they have been in a relationship their whole lives! A paradise garden to grow up in where all their needs will be met with minimal effort (effort, that can be considered play). I will gift them access from birth to water fresh from a spring: living, breathing, free water! I will give them years of my dedication towards planning, planting and preparing forests filled with an abundant diversity of wild, fresh and free foods to taste the bounty our majestic world offers! Forests that were planted with them in mind and imprinted with my (and their) DNA from inception, to provide health no other source can rival. A forest that will continue to thrive well after I am gone and provide them will abundance their whole lives! I will provide for them an ecological system that frees my wife and I from the necessity to 'work' to provide for our children. Giving us the freedom and ability to gift our full love, devotion, and attention! I will gift my children with an environment free from the mental, physical, and emotional toxins of our dominant society; A domain where all their needs to be healthy and creative are near-effortlessly provided for them, through the cycles and patterns of our natural world.


Freedom

The greatest gift I could ever hope to give will be the gift of ultimate freedom! Freedom to pursue whatever passions or creativities they are inspired to pursue, never confining nor programming them! I will gift them with unhindered access to infinite knowledge! Not through our media, schooling, books or Internet (that will come much later), but with the gift of relationship and access to our natural pristine world. A part of the earth that I will transform into a paradise for them! I will gift them a place to go and ponder the mysteries and connect with their inner beings, I will gift them the basic tools of contemplation and meditation (if they aren't already superior to mine). I will gift them an environment to exercise their innate ability to deeply and intimately connect with our natural world and other living beings in their loving domain, honing their metaphysical abilities and evolving into the next form of mankind. They will have a vastly greater freedom to dictate their decisions, free from the constant war over our attentions (advertising) our children in our cultures face today! A war that has never been in our children's best interests, nor from a place of love...


Our NeighbourGood

If I am able, the greatest gift I would be able to give them is a new, more-beautiful, connected and free society to grow up in. Where other children and families are living just as free and connected to our earth and each other. The greatest gift I could ever give was everything I now wish I had, a life that I realize now would be everything I would have needed to thrive. I will be there for my child every step of their journey, not forcing my ideologies, but allowing their ideologies to flourish in a healthy, free and wild environment designed for them!


The Gift of Life

The greatest gift I could ever give would be the gift of ultimate freedom, the gift of life, the gift of vitality, a gift that our earth has generously and without supposition gifted to me. It wasn't until quite recently that I realized this offer that has been there my whole life. My desire, and best gift that I could ever hope to give; would be to create a new, more beautiful and free society. The next evolution in humanity to carry us forward. The greatest gift I could ever have is to create my life and our society as best as I can possibly imagine and let my children start from there, so they can build the best life they can possibly imagine (which is well beyond our imagination)!


I was inspired to share this thought as one of Eco-Trains questions of the week! Check us out and if you're on the same journey, feel free to hop on board! :)

Sort:  

There exists a delicate line in serving and preserving a local eco-system. I start off by "violating" bio-dynamics by importing minerals for the soil. Decades and even centuries of rape have left living soils missing a key ingredient to being a rhizosphere.

In my long-held garden, I had attracted Yellow Jackets, by placing heaps of rotting apples under pines not far away. The apples are a food source and the pulp of the pines: nesting materials.

Weeds are a concept. I used Red and White Clovers and Creeping Charlie for ground covers. They attracted Bumblebees. Insects are important for a healthy rhizosphere. However, the balance has usually been broken.

Many folks say they are for ecology until they witness a Kestrel grab a Sparrow. They really freak out when an eagle carts off a cat.

"There exists a delicate line in serving and preserving a local eco-system."

Avoid serving and preserving altogether and we can enter into a relationship of mutually beneficial co-creation! :)

Haha!

It sounds like you have a wonderful environment you're creating :) Maybe, with enough interaction, you may be able to train and entice the eagle to give rides to your baby children/grand children/great grand children ;)

Yes, this is beautifull! Like Anastasia's vision. A place to commune with the earth, that can serve as our natural matrix taking care of us, while we take care of it. And what a good way to see this. If our generation can't realise it, to at least give our time and love so the next one will. This is our real richness.

YES!!! Exactly this!:) :)

I can't think of any greater gift I could possibly give (or receive)!

Well how to say...It is very moving and beautiful. I got a little emotional as well :)
I love this philosophy raising kids in respect of Nature, Humanity, Environment, Respect of every life being, Freedom, Evolution and Spirituality! We should all go the same with the future generation of humans.
Thanks for this beautiful text.

You are very welcome :)

I have made it my life's purpose to be able to cultivate a environment to raise kids this way. I believe that this is what will save and progress humanity.

We need more people like you , merci once again!

This is truly beautiful. I got a little emotional reading it. Since I was a teen what you described was all I ever really wanted. Your children will be the pioneers of the future and they will be well equipt. Thanks for such a great read.

Thank you for your beautiful message :) :)

This is all I have ever wanted as well, and I'm fortunate to be in a position to actually create it :) I Believe my task in life is to simply create this for my children and to empower them to design a world beyond my imagination!

I share that vision with you @rieki, this is so close to the post I wanted to write :-) If things don't turn out that way, the best thing you can give to your children is your time and energy, sharing your vision so the next generations will realise it!
Love, BEAUTIFUL POST!!!

Beautiful! It's a wonderful life and vision we share! A future that is all to eager to exist on a grander scale. :) It will be infinitely fascinating to see what a generation raised in this manner will create! It's an exciting life!

That is why we are doing what we are doing. Something to leave our children and grandchildren. Leaving not only the land and houses but the knowledge of how to grow their own food and raise animals.

Excatly!!! Thank you for what you are doing! It's the most important task that humanity has yet to re-learn :)

Wonderful vision.
I hope more and more people will awake to similar visions.

More and more people are having similar dreams! The more people that dream a dream, the greater the reality of that dream to manifest in the material world! Many people in our culture are coming to visions like this and beginning to take action and I have seen dozens of beautiful cultures being born across our globe! Our world is transforming!

Thank you for the beautiful comment :)

If only everone thought this way. I guess we can only do the best we can. It only takes one person change the world. I am rooting for you

Thank you!! If you're interested in how I intend to create this society, I wrote a proposal for just that! https://steemit.com/life/@rieki/our-neighbourgood-on-intentionally-creating-societies-designed-for-the-21st-century-and-beyond-september-2017-update

There is no greater gift. My children have benefited from it and are planning for their own children's nourishing futures.

YES!! I'm so happy to hear this :) Thank you for your gift!!

Great post and vision. The most beautiful things in life aren't things. Life, freedom, happiness... all come straight from the heart!

"The most beautiful things in life aren't things."

Yes!! I love this :)

Without HEART life freedom and happiness don't exist :) :) Thank you!

Thank you for putting it so well. Upvoted and following.

Thank you :) I'm glad you were able to connect with it :)

I wish you Will be able to provide all that, and I wish the same for me ! Thank you for creating beautiful and optimist reality :D

Thank you :) It's been said the best way to predict the future is to create it. So, I created a model to help bring about this reality for all of us. It's a bit of a read, as you can imagine. But if you're interested, here it is!

Wonderful post! A great read and an great gift.
