Rediscovering Home on a Harmonious Planet

Moneca has been putting together a book based on the principles of HomEcology and the idea of S.P.A.C.E. (Sun, Place, Adaptability, Cultivation and Ease) The book is in skeleton form however were excited to share the ideas behind the book’s thesis. The thesis of this book is that happiness happens when we align our lives with our values.

“From the moment of birth every human being wants happiness and does not want suffering….Therefore, it is important to discover what will bring about the greatest degree of happiness.” ~ Dalai Lama

To illustrate the interconnectedness of the themes and concepts and model how to let go of linear thinking and embrace a more holistic organic discovery.  It allows for another way of taking in the information rather than just the intellect processing we are feeling the colors and listening to their story and respecting it.

And because it’s a little bit delightful and I haven’t seen it done before so it becomes an intriguing design exercise as well as opportunity to add new values

Why is this story so Colorful?

The colors will inform in their own way and move us, they have energy and intention. A dear friend once described me as being so full of love and colors

101 things noted that if you are having trouble with a design abstract it into just the shapes and see if its balanced and working- this is sort of a take on that idea.

African proverb: If we don’t initiate the boys they will burn down the village.

HomeMAKING as a Hero’s Journey that requires self knowledge and leads to wisdom  

We need to be the hero of our life and the one who saves the world

RITE OF PASSAGE

“There is no path to happiness: happiness is the path.” Gautama Budha

Cultural need for rites of passage – we’ve forgotten how to become adults so are stuck in an adolescent culture.

This could make a case for multi- generational living because one goal of the home should be to cultivate elder-hood.

We need NEW stories and meaningful creation myths – this is the GREAT WORK of our time.

Thomas Berry said we will be given everything we need to do this work and it resonates as true for me.

Consumerism has robbed us of innate meaning and we need to reclaim it. [Explore how it’s intentional- they want us to want stuff -formula for suffering if we look to the East and reflect on Samsara

Stories can heal our world

This book intends to be part of the conversation about THE GREAT WORK; We each are in dialogue …

Our homes stand as monuments to our beliefs whether intentionally or inadvertently.

 $$ only increases our happiness up to the point where we have enough to manage (ie. earning 50,000 a year)

 

Sometimes a messy home is the answer if it lowers our stress

    Is it not better to create, than consume? It can be anything.
