Continued from  Earth is My Other Body


Eight Weeks Later:

The all men’s group, average age 24, has been meeting with Steve for four hours once a week. They do the readings and activities in our Orientation Course with him and share their responses, concerns and support together as they with Earth as their other body that they hold in common. 

For best results, the group should be meeting ninety minutes a day while sleeping one night minimum between activities. Sleep time makes space for their dreams to help nature fill the new paths the activities make in their mind while their stories are asleep. That’s the heart of nature-connected recovery, to help them build a supportive haven in their mentality that their Other Body continually nurtures.

By energizing their Other Body into consciousness they are developing a strong, grounded sense of self and community.  This is a critical for developing resilience against addiction and most other disorders.

Steve has continued to collect the Validate facts and reported that follow up meetings for programs usually have a 5 percent turnout, however with this group it was an unprecented 65 percent.  I’m going to let some quotes from the participants speak for themselves here (with abusive language altered). You can decide if they are classic observations that have value. Their authors are obviously not well known but aren’t they unheralded pioneers?

“We are skilled criminals, we can hide from the eyes of our critical society that we are doing these activities that re-connect us with our Other Body.”

“As organized street gang members we can protect our Other Body from further harm.”

“This program completes my genuine seeking urge to be organized and connected because this process is already organized. It brings me peace when I seek my other body experience. The other kind of organized and connected is what got me in jail.”
 “Because this process goes to my Other Body, I sense I can trust it more than the no-body world of crime I came from. I worked really hard out there to live but the joke was on me that I was living to die, I was a nature-disconnected lie.”
“I can’t believe I am in an institution looking for the beauty of what I lost, this is more than crazy, but I am changing; it is a great change too, and look I have a trustable body.”
“This sounds and flows good, it is a fact that I get better results when I do this stuff. I feel like I'm running home every time I do these activities with you and the group. This is no bullshit, I really see the beauty, I see my beautiful other body.”

"This is like fire between a man and a woman in a good way; instead of looking for another body I am looking for my other body,

“I'm in jail and the guards are the trees. The good soldiers are the trees that protect me from the clear-cut just across the road which was my life. Everything here has two body's and have it in them to protect me.”

“This place is like an egg hunt. I'm looking under every rock for my other body and find it every time. I'm changed for life so I cant go back to being a nobody ever again.”

“I'm officially seeking to be a somebody now.”
