Now more than ever, owning land in common with like-minded Kindred Spirits and living cooperatively in a communal manner is very important. Gone are the days of men and women being an island. In other words, we can no longer survive with the mentality of “every man or woman to him or herself”. Challenging economic times and daily stressors make it so we must turn to our dear close friends, neighbors, and family loved ones for support, comfort, and survival. Yesterday, we asked our next-door neighbor for a cup of sugar.

Today, we'll be asking our next-door neighbor for extra drinking water and seeds or soil to help grow a healthy organic vegetable garden. It is because of this that it is wise to have next-door neighbors with whom we feel safe and comfortable with whom we can trust, especially in the event of an emergency. When we own land in common with these next-door neighbors with whom we trust and feel safe, we can rest easy knowing that we will be there for each other, regardless of the situation. As we learn to trust and feel safe and comfortable with each other, we'll be able to make wise important decisions together and help each other enjoy healthy happy lives together. This is the best form of healthy living and survival.
