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! 😁🙏💚✨🤙

In my recent posts I've been mentioning that I was pretty sure that I had an easy non-KYC way to convert cash in hand into assets on Hive. Yesterday I confirmed that, after talking with our crypto-enthusiast jungle neighbor, Jyoti, when he came over to get some coconuts in the late afternoon. I asked him first if he had any holdings of LTC (my preferred way of sending and receiving between blockchains), which he didn't (he's a BTC fellow mostly), and then if he'd be willing to send me LTC or BCH (second choice for cross-blockchain transfers) if I gave him a corresponding amount of cash, to which he was thankfully very agreeable. I've known Jyoti for years, so I know that he is very trustworthy.

So to start, I handed him $100 cash, for an equivalent value of LTC, that I should receive in my wallet on Hive Engine (on my @tydyn.rain account) this coming Saturday. The way that he chose to carry out the transaction, via a centralized exchange, added much more time than I was expecting or hoping, but I'm just grateful that this avenue to investing in Hive is open to me, and that I'll likely be able to make use of it in this way over time, in a periodic manner, which is excellent.

At the moment I only plan on doing this cash-to-Hive-asset swap perhaps every few months, to give my account a nice boost from time to time. Being able to translate cash in hand into SWAP.LTC in my wallet also makes it much quicker and easier to rebuild and jump start my trading fund on Hive Engine once again.

Given that I can go in one direction with this transfer of assets, it just popped into my mind that it might also be possible to do it in reverse, sending Jyoti LTC, and receiving cash in hand, also without KYC. Since I'm not a Hive millionaire whale 🐳 fairy 🧚‍♂️ yet, I won't be making use of this reverse option any time soon, but it is great to know the it might indeed be possible. With the work that I've been doing on the Blockchain, and this new source of usable assets coming into play, I plan to be building and growing my account quite notably over the next few months, and in all directions.

Yesterday, Saturday, I left the Flow House just before 2PM, after finishing up my morning-afternoon Hive tasks. As is often the case, I strained out and blended kefir (kefir-honey-cinnamon-cacao) first, before diving into land work. When that was done, I helped Ano to unload coconuts from his truck after his Friday cocoing trip, and then reload it with supplies for the Sunday market. After helping Ano with that, Ano helped me to collect a wheelbarrow full of cow-milking food. With that done, I took a short break up at the Flow House, then I got my machete and did more clearing work along the second driveway. After clearing, I took a shower, collected my leftover jar of superfood fire coffee from the Landing fridge, and made my way back to the Flow House, to jump into my evening round of Hive tasks, and catching up on notifications. I got everything done on Hive by just before 10PM, and after a short post on Waves, and a quick scan of my X feed, I went to bed just before 11PM. I did thankfully sleep well, waking up just before 7:45AM, doing a round of token management, beginning on this post, then getting out of bed to go make my superfood fire coffee.

It's now just after 10:15AM, so a fantastic time to end this post, so that I can get to a few important Hive tasks, before leaving the Flow House later in the afternoon, to first strain out and blend kefir, and then to go reflection hunting again, as I was not able to find a usable reflection for my entry in the Reflection Hunters Contest yesterday. I'll probably also take more photos for these posts. Since it's Sunday, I'll be relaxing and doing Hive. I deeply appreciate y'all so very much! Until my Reflection Hunters post later today (hopefully), and the next iteration of this post tomorrow! Always forward, onward, upward, and whaleward, ho, together we go! 😁 🙏 💚 ✨ 🤙

2024 Life Goals

1.) Heal my broken heart, reignite my heart sun, and embody a solid, healthy masculine, allowing my electric fire to shine bright, no matter what others, especially women, say or do. 

2.) Bring myself and my life back into balance, integration, and wholeness. 

3.) Do regular (naked) integral practices again, alone or with others. 

4.) Dance regularly again.

5.) Work with natural entheogens (mushrooms, ganja, ayahuasca), with punctuated regularity, as a part of my healing process again. 

 6.) Get, and keep, regular deep, integral energy-body-tantric work healing sessions for women flowing again.

7.) Prepare regular batches of my medicinal teas collected from the land again. 

8.) Make my plant nursery beautiful again.

9.) Live as an integral part of a juicy heart-resonant soul tribe community, with deep, coherent mutual and shared passion, purpose, mission, love, warmth care, sweetness, reverence, respect, aliveness, admiration, excitement, enjoyment, playfulness, work, fun, laughter, attraction, and all-level connections and relationships. 

10.) Make love with the woman, or the women, that I love, every day, as a sacred devotional practice. 

11.) Begin learning relevant coding/programming languages to more fully contribute to the sovereignty-driven technologies where I am active, like Arch Linux, Hive, Qortal, DeSo, and Bastyon.
