I am a 20 y/o male looking to be a part of a community with an exceptionally interconnected tribe atmosphere…aka full of love. To achieve this to its highest extent, I think it is necessary to be %100 self-sustainable and off-grid, without modern amenities like television and Internet. Is there anyone out there who shares this vision with me? (and, if not, do you know of any individuals or groups that do?)
I think the purest form of what I am looking for is people to do something like what Christopher McCandless did in Into the Wild with (if you’re not familiar its easy to read about online), except being aware of the risks and how to manage them, and over a longer period of time (hopefully a lifetime). This is, in my opinion, the most likely way of achieving the purest sense of freedom that has been progressively fleeting from the human consciousness over the last 4,000 years.
My email is email@example.com and phone is 804-513-9031.
P.S. Here is a little bit about myself and why I am looking for a community like this, in case it feels relevant to you.
I dropped out of college in the fall of 2015 because I knew I needed to find a new direction in life if I wanted to be happy in the long term. I had been on a tedious and tenuous path for many years that included doing a bunch of stuff that I didn’t enjoy for the sake of “doing the right thing,” “not being worthless,” “being a productive member of society” etc. After I finished my senior year of high school in 2015, it seemed like I would continue on this path of being “a good guy, who works and studies hard” (in my own head at least), but really feeling somewhat miserable inside.
I was pretty much aloof to what was transpiring until the summer before going to college when I had an extremely mystical and revelatory experience that ended up totally changing my life-path. My whole world was shattered. Basically all the nonsense that I had been taking part in for the greater part of 5 years was revealed, and I had to figure out what to do.
I went to college in the Fall, hoping I could still overcome all that I had figured out and continue on the straight-edge path while still being happy. I still really hated it, and so I dropped out after a few months with the hope of finding something new. The year after that definitely wasn’t a fun one either, but it was enlightening and somewhat productive in figuring out where to go next. I went on several lengthy backpacking expeditions, and that definitely helped to show me that living simply with a group of loved ones is the way to true happiness.
I’ve been striving for that goal ever since, having worked on a farm in Costa Rica for 3 months and now spending 6.5 months living and working on an organic farm in New Jersey. I can see myself heading in the right direction, but I still have connections to society, money, greed, and human agendas that make me sick. On the contrary to these things, to truly achieve peace and happiness, I think one must feel a genuine sense of oneness between oneself, one’s kin, and the natural world.
