Travels as Cosmic Pearl
I have been living close to the land. Presently I am living in the desert in New Mexico. I have been studying how people live without modern conveniences. I guess I am on my quest to understand Thoreau’s art of living, only rather than having a pond to live by I have chosen a desert.
My name is Pearl because I have been molded by the excretions of the world around me but have not become the world. I have become my own universe…thus my first name Cosmic. I am on a spiritual journey to know Truth mixed with a lot of Love and Compassion, for I believe that that is where God resides.
How did I end up here in this desert? Well I have been living on a commune in Tenn called Moonshadow. I have been learning how to make my own bread, grow my own food and become more sufficient. I even learned how to make a cob house.
One day a man named Quiet Owl, that was visiting there, told me about some ‘free’ land that was available in New Mexico. He also gave me the name of a man there who had started a community where they were building earth shelters. I just arrived here at The Land Of Earth and Sky yesterday.
Although the journey I am taking will take a year in Earth time, fortunately in Cosmic time, time itself is irrelevant. I am free to learn where I am for as long as I need to. I have a community of friends and artists, lovers of life, givers and seekers of Truth that I will be traveling with. I am so excited to be on my quest for Truth, Understanding and Compassion.
