A Yogic Water Protector Seeks to Find the Truth Between Warring Sides

I met with the key yogi here at the farm about doing residence training here. He said things looked good on his end and he would send my application to the director who is in China. I feel this is a good place to connect with earth and meditate on this deep issue of global importance. He told me, rightly, that what I encountered in #NoDAPL is the human condition and to step away from the story, and start to study yoga and its deep understanding of human nature. I agree, but he said do it gardening and doing work outside. I agree, it sounds like heaven. God will speak through the earth, not the computer.  This is a word cloud from my book.  The blue around the flame is the water, the theme of the second book of poems I am writing now.  Let’s make peace, and use modern and ancient knowledge and wisdom to bring earth into balance.

About kayaerbil

I am a Berkeley educated chemistry Ph.D. who is moving into the area of working on developing appropriate technology for communities that are subjected to socio-economic oppression. The goal is to use simple and effective designs to empower people to live better lives. Currently, I am working with Native Americans on Pine Ridge, the Lakota reservation in South Dakota. I am working with a Native owned and run solar energy company. We are currently working on building a compressed earth block (CEB) house that showcases many of the technologies that the company has developed. The CEB house is made of locally derived resources, earth from the reservation. The blocks are naturally thermally insulating, keeping the house cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Eventually, a solar air heater and photovoltaic panels will be installed into the house to power the home and keep it warm, while preserving the house off the grid. A side project while in Pine Ridge is a solar computer. I hope to learn about blockchain encryption software for building microgrids. In addition, it is an immediate interest of mine to involve local youth in technology education.
