Community Description:

What if anyone on this planet could remember or imagine who we really are? Is there even one person on this spinning globe who believes we are here to bring Eden to the whole earth? Can anyone see in his/her mind gardens and fruitful fields and forests springing up or being restored everywhere?
Did you know that when you plow with horses or dig with hand tools in the soil, that extra energy is imparted to the ground which does not happen when one uses a big tractor? Did you know that some of us can physically see this energy? It is a bright golden light that surrounds the horses, plow and plowing person or the shovel and person. It doesn’t matter if the person is a man or a woman.
In the 1800’s, a Sioux Indian boy named Black Elk fell sick and had a vision. In part of his vision, a black stallion appeared and sang and danced for him. The horse told him that his horses were coming from all over the universe and as the horse sang and danced, all the people, animals, and plants sang and danced. There was love, peace, joy and harmony over the whole planet. Thousands of years ago, the prophets Hosea and Isaiah had similar visions of people being called out into the wilderness,planting fruit and singing. Then again all was love, joy, peace and harmony. God, humans, the earth, animals and plants could all “hear one another”. Peace and prosperity everywhere for all people. Can the same message be received by willing people of any age thousands of years apart? People of different cultures and far apart on the planet?
Since 1999 we have been in a ministry of gardening, animal husbandry and rain calling. Wherever we move, in a few months the rainfall increases for the farmers and ranchers 30-40%. They get better crops of hay, grain and whatever. I believe this is because equines are part of this ministry and raising food for the poor, elderly and lonely. My partner has regained his heart for this project because so many of you have responded that you feel the same way. If any part of this vision resonates with you, would you send some seed that could be planted to raise grass or grain for horses, sheep or goats? Would you consider joining and living a pure and simple life filled with songs and joy, learning to live self-sufficiently and helping to teach others? Can you walk in love for people, plants, animals and the earth?
Please write if you do.
