Tantra And World Peace By The Buddha (Interview)

Photos, video and audio credit: J. Zubieta Calvert, www.noblepeacetribe.org

Karolina Karwan is a multifaceted person and explorer of the inner and outer worlds (in the end, one and the same).

We randomly met while walking in opposite directions on a road through the high mountains of Oaxaca.

After a couple of days and a few casual conversations, the interview with Karolina organically took form and place by the Buddha of a beautiful small village setting.

Before you head to listen to our conversation on “Tantra and World Peace”, make sure to join Karolina on her social media and other video channels to find out what she is up to next.

It is tricky to get good internet connection way up in the mountains of Oaxaca. The complete video interview will be uploaded as soon as I get the chance.

Toda Mi Vida (All My Life)

He venido aquí buscando flores

He venido aquí buscando cantos

Busco mariposas de obsidiana

Busco mariposas de mil colores

I have come here looking for flowers

I have come here looking for songs

I look for obsidiana butterflies

I look for butterflies of a thousand colors

Hey ana na ya na na na

Hey hey ho

Toda mi vida yo te he buscado

Y en este fuego yo te he encontrado

All my life I have been looking for you

And in this fire I have found you

Land Access and Outdoor Access

“How should we have minimized this [“crazy” and “evil” conspiracy theories about me regarding vaccination and the COVID-19 pandemic], either working out with the social media companies, or explaining what we are up to in a better way?” – Bill Gates

Yes, Bill. I agree with you here: How would you explain what you are up to in a better way? BTW, I really hope “your heart is as soft and warm as your sweater”.

“Bill Gates, co-founder of Microsoft, has an alter ego: Farmer Bill, the guy who owns more farmland than anyone else in America.” -Eric OKeefe, The Land Report

The institutional support is set up not only for denying people like you and me to have land access. But now in corona crisis times, we are also being denied OUTDOOR access.

The greatest protest in the history of the world has been ongoing over 6 months and hardly anyone is talking about it. 250 million small farmers are protecting their land and food security of India from the hands of #CorporateGlobalisation #CorporateGlobalization #LandGrabbing

Tell Bill Gates to donate land to organic farmers.

What the world needs now is MORE people

Before “overpopulation” believers go straight for my neck, I would like to utter out that I am Pro Creation. Yes, Pro creation. Not Pro Choice, and not Pro Life. 

But what does Pro Creation mean? Well, on the broad sense, it means favoring creation. But it also means Co-creative Procreation. Please allow me to make my case. 

How many people nowadays were born because of the following “accidents”:

  • The condom broke
  • The pill didn’t work

Or someone saying:

  • “I drank too much that night”
  • “I wasn’t supposed to be in my fertile days”
  • “My biological clock was ticking”
  • “Everyone else was having babies”
  • “My partner wanted to have kids”
  • “I was too hot to pull out”

What is the story most parents are going to tell their kids about their conception as the first generation born during the Covid Crisis?: “The TV broke down during the lockdown”? Or perhaps, “The Internet was not working for a whole day”?

Halloween and Days of the Dead

I didn’t really want to do this post to teach you how to draw minions in bananas. I would have preferred to tell you how many ancestors I have and you have.

Minions on bananas.

But as this twenty twenty has taught us, sometimes what we want doesn’t happen, or so we think.
But this being the occasion for a horror story, here I share with you one that is written while you read these lines, followed by a possible change of narrative.

Stay safe, alive and kicking.
With love and an open heart.

Who What Where When How WHY and Happy Solstice

Who What Where How WHY

Happy Summer Solstice!

On this day, the longest of the year in the Northern Hemisphere, The Noble Peace Tribe is delighted to share the clearer home page introduction with you. 

May the light be with us all along with our shadows and all.

Communities, intention, vision and 3 blenders in our shared kitchen space

A quick recap of this video:

Two months and a half ago, this 4-bedroom “co-housing” space had only one couple occupying one of the rooms and NO blender in the common kitchen.

Then, one and a half months ago, we occupied a second room and got a blender 10 days later (unfortunately, getting a second-hand blender did not work out). A few days after that, the other couple got a blender as well – exactly the same model as ours. Total 2 blenders so far.

And just at the beginning of the year, a third room was occupied, bringing a 3rd brand-new blender to the same common kitchen space.

I would guess, having 3 blenders available in the same kitchen would be an uncommon feature of any apartment – even if it was in the USA or Europe. But it is specially weird to find this in a country like Ecuador, where most of the electronic equipment is imported and very highly taxed. Plus, the currency in this country is the U.S. Dollar! So you can get an idea of how having 3 blenders available in one kitchen would be out of the question here.

But that is NOT all. One of our “co-housers” complained that we use the blenders too much, creating too much noise and so it was proposed to ban the blenders from the kitchen and use them on the terrace only! (Good comedy material, right?)

In any case. This is a good lesson for me to pin point the importance of having a vision in common when it comes to living together. Given our actual situation is NOT meant to be an intentional community nor an eco village, this current experience has given us perspective of how clear things need to be agreed prior to moving in together with people that may or may not share the ideals, practices and values that The Noble Peace Tribe people have in common.
