I live naked and barefooted, very close to Earth and Nature, in an 18-acre, off-grid, clothing-optional, food-forest intentional community (GaiaYoga Gardens), way out in the jungles of Lower Puna, far East Big Island, Hawai'i, and I have for more than 5 years now. Although there are many challenges, I love my life, and I'm immensely grateful to live where and how I do, on my own terms! I would not want to live any other way! 😁🙏💚⚡💥🔥✴️✳️❇️👣🌱✨🤙

Warm greetings all! 😁🙏💚✨🤙

Likely one of the more curious things for those that know me here on Hive, or who are regular readers of my posts, is the fact that I live naked and barefooted, off grid in the jungle in a clothing-optional intentional community. While I mention it fairly often, I rarely go into exactly why on earth I've chosen to live this way for almost 6 years now, and why I would never want to live anywhere where wearing clothing is required. In honesty, I usually feel very constricted, restricted, restrained, and repressed on the rare occasions when I do wear clothes, so I only do so when absolutely necessary. Given that our whole body is made up of many sense organs, our skin being a huge one, I feel 'blind' when I have to wear clothes. So yeah, I'm not into it.

As a child, and as I grew up, I went through multiple rounds, or waves, of awakenings. I've always questioned and challenged everything, all the beliefs, conditioning, paradigms, perspectives, and programming that I encountered, and in this process my own perspective changed radically several times, where I opened to whole new, and vaster worlds of experience. One of those waves of awakening to new worlds happened when I questioned why we wear clothes when it was warm, and the clothing was unnecessary for protection. I came to realize that the obsessive-compulsive wearing of clothing, which has become the 'norm' in most of the world, was in fact yet another way that people were disconnected from, and weaponized against themselves and each other.

It was around age 16 that I questioned that, and I considered myself a naturist/nudist from that point forward, though these days I don't really care about labels much at all. Through most of my late teens and early adulthood, I was naked when possible, at beaches, lakes, and rivers, in forests, at gatherings or special events, and I associated with people who were comfortable, and actually preferred being naked. It was only when I moved to Hawai'i on April 1, 2018 (a month before the 2018 eruption), when I first lived at Lolia, and then later at GaiaYoga Gardens where I live now, that I was actually able to live naked 24/7 for weeks and months at a time. During extended periods of remaining naked, I'd occasionally feel waves of shame or embarrassment, seemingly out of the blue, and yet if I didn't give into these feelings and just sat with them, staying naked, I found that they would always disappear quite quickly. That very significant experience showed me clearly that living naked, very close to earth and nature, was not negotiable for me, it was absolutely necessary.

So why is it that I choose to live naked?

In the most basic terms, I believe that what we are, our humanity, is incredibly beautiful, and that we are acceptable and beautiful just as we are, without any additions, masks, or façade necessary at all. I want to see people, and I want to be seen, as a whole, not as fragmented parts. I honor and celebrate our whole, natural, sovereign, divine humanity, and as such I do not accept the still dominant perspective from the satanic slave system that there is something wrong with what we are, or that certain parts of us are somehow wrong, bad, dirty, or should not be seen. That concept is abhorrent to me. The body, just like all aspects of our being, functions as a whole, with each part as beautiful, noble, and necessary as any other, it is oniy our distorted perspective which makes certain parts of us 'wrong' or 'not acceptable' in a natural and unaltered state.

Polish_20220714_121631044.jpg

There is so ridiculously much charge around the body and its processes, and most people have a great deal of guilt, shame, fear, as well as morbid curiosity and unbalanced desire, in relation to their own bodies and those of other people. Very detrimental and unhealthful psychological neuroses develop in people that are not allowed to see the whole body of others, or be seen as a whole themselves, especially over extended periods of time, and yet this insane condition is how most people have grown up, and as such it's all they know, it's 'normal'. No, it's not normal for humans to be terrified to spend time with each other in their natural state. That satanic nonsense is not a part of my reality, thank God!

Polish_20220714_121631044.jpg

Regardless of the many notable challenges living here at GaiaYoga Gardens, one thing about it that I deeply love and appreciate, and which is essential for me, is that all aspects and processes of our hunanity, are fully accepted here, nakedness, peeing, pooping, menstruating, sex, pregnancy, childbirth, are all seen in a very matter-of-fact manner. All people, especially women and children, are safe here. I couldn't live anywhere where that were not the case. People can be naked, clothed, or somewhere in between, and it's all good, nobody bats an eye, which is as it should be in greater society. Very thankfully in Lower Puna nakedness is pretty well accepted in many places.

My hope is that what I've shared here today gives you greater clarity and understanding around nakedness, and why living naked is so absolutely essential for me. Maybe it even gives you a bit of curiosity and desire to try it for yourself. You may find, as I did, what being a human on earth can truly be like, and that there is no going back once you actually experience it for yourself.

I left the Flow House yesterday, Saturday, just after 2:15PM, after completing my essential Hive tasks, putting my focus first on taking photos for this post. Thankfully it was sunny, with great light, so it was quite quick and easy. After taking photos, I decided to strain out kefir for my kefir-honey-cinnamon-cacao blend earlier in the day than usual. With kefir done, I went to continue working in my nursery, cleaning, weeding, and organizing, and finding plants that I want to get planted in the ground next.

After finishing with my nursery work, I took a shower, grabbed my leftover superfood fire coffee from the Landing fridge, then I made my way back to the Flow House, to jump into my evening round of Hive tasks, which I was able to finish by 9PM. I spent some time after that doing some token management, and scanning my feed on X, then I went to bed just after 10:30AM. I slept great until around 3AM, at which point I couldn't get back to sleep, so I finally did another round of token management, and then I listened to two different psycho-acoustic/neural resonance/brainwave hemispheric synchronization audio tracks until after sunrise, one of which was one that I remastered myself. That technology is incredible stuff. Once the last track was done playing, I got out of bed to go make my superfood fire coffee.

It's just past 11:15AM now, so it's a marvelous time to end this post, so that I can get to my very Hive-focused Sunday, with my usual tasks and catching up fully on notifications, as well as some more-thorough token management, and of course compiling and writing my 89th Sunday Weekly Hive Goals and Progress Update, which I'll publish later tonight. I will make time in my day to take photos for tomorrow's incarnation of this post, to strain out and blend keifr, and to make myself some food. I deeply appreciate you all so very much! Until that post tonight, and the next version of this post tomorrow! Forward, onward, and upward, joyfully together! 😁 🙏 💚 ✨ 🤙

It's good to see your clarification, even though I think nobody asked for it. It's your opinion. However, to me, it's an unacceptable way of living. Nudity is not the modesty. Being a part of a religion, I think no religion on the earth permits someone to roam around naked.

Anyway, it's your way of living and you explained it. As the issue came forward, I told my view. No hard feelings I hope.

#aliveandthriving

I appreciate you sharing your perspective, @hafiz34, though mine is very different of course, so obviously I don't agree with you, which is fine. As long as we are both able to live as we'd like, without anyone imposing their perspective on us, is all good. My perspective on this topic has come from decades of observation and direct experience.

Also, it's not accurate that no world religions aceept nakedness. I've known many Christian and Jewish people who had no issue with it. Also, in India there are many very-highly revered holy men that live naked.

Nope, no hard feelings. I still appreciate and respect you as a human, even if I don't agree with you. 😁 🙏 💚 ✨ 🤙

As long as it is acceptable in that part of environment, no one can question it.

Thanks a lot for sharing your experience and why you chose to live naked in the jungle. Ain't nothing better than FREEDOM to live your life they way you dim best. At least you are close to nature, and I believe it's super fun. (1) I've been wondering, how naked are you, what's the percentage, 10-100%? (2) How's the weather out there?

Thanks a lot for comprehensively answering to questions bothering me. 100% naked in the property, that means the weather is conducive and convenient. Continue to enjoy clean air nature and clean environment. Best wishes.

Of course, @emjeak, you're most welcome! Yep, that's correct, the weather is usually great, with only occasional chills. Thank you again, and and yes, I shall! It's appreciated! Have an excellent Thursday! 😁 🙏 💚 ✨ 🤙

You're very welcome, @emjeak, it's always my honor, pleasure, and privilege to share! Bingo, exactly! Everyone should be able to live in a way that truly feels good to them! I am indeed very close to nature, that's quite true! I only wear clothes if I go off property, which lately is very, very rarely. I'm naked 100% of the time when on property, only using a blanket if it gets cold. The weather is generally really lovely here, often sunny, warm, and breezy, with periodic rains. It's winter still, so it's a little cooler, especially at night, and it rains more. 😁 🙏 💚 ✨ 🤙

I never thought of why you would choose to be naked, I think nobody should judge another for how they want to live their life that is unless it is harmful to them.

Great to read your story my friend, we all have reasons why we live the way we do regardless of choices open to us many find themselves unable to funtion in main stream society.

With so many constantly changing rules to control our lives it is surprising so many just go along with it and don't choose their own way instead.

I salute you brother your living the dream your dream and the freedom you gain from your choices is all that matters. 😎

Thank you very much for that, Ben, I really appreciate it! Indeed, we all do have our reasons. Sometimes they're good reasons, other timea not so much. I was never great at living in mainstream society, but with how overtly insane everything got over the past few years, I just couldn't tolerate it any longer.

Brother, it boggles my brain that so many continue to go along with a system that is ever-more obviously not for our benefit. If that's what they want to do, go for it, but count me out. I'll do my own thing in the jungle.

Thanks so much again, that means a lot to me! Even with the many challenges, how and wwhde I live is very worth it! 😁 🙏 💚 ✨ 🤙

You are welcome have a glorious mid week and keep the freedom alive brother
