The Community, The Ark & The MAN

Okay, so the dust has settled a bit, on what have been a few hard days on the Daily Paul community:

- A lot of despair, a lot of hope.
- A lot of frustration and a whole lot of love.
- I'm proud of you guys and girls. A Lot!

It should come as no surprise that many have stepped up, many has donated paper money, silver and bit coins. Others offered time to help repair this "old house", while still other started a small auction, though the site was never set for sale :-)

I personally only intended to share some thoughts with you, that was my personal mission on this Ark. Some history; some perspective. Often the best perspective can be found from a distance. I have followed you guys from a distance for years, and learned so much.

This was to be my humble contribution. A few are still unwritten, but the last couple of days, I have not had peace to continue writing. The Ark has had some tough days of weather. I know we have all felt it.

I had no intentions of contributing other my perspective, and I do have very little to give.


Michael, you have a special place in my heart, more so even, than the rest of the community (and that says quite a bit). All the hardship you have endured, while trying to keep this community floating, all the time and effort and love you gave. What a guy!

I will contribute to Michael, not the site. I went out digging in my garden, up with the treasure chest, found 3 Ounces of something that resonates:

Hey that was awesome!

Especially at 4:20 in the morning.

The Community, the Ark and the MAN. I'll meditate on that. Thank you for pointing that out.

I just really don't want to be the one. To be the one chosen.

Nobody wants to be the chosen one.

O Captain! My Captain!

Don’t get too hung up on “words”:

  • You choose us too!?
  • We have chosen each other?
  • We are all , the chosen one?

I reality, I don’t see the big difference between "you" and "I" (not you "Michael" and I "Jeppe"), the big "YOU" and the big "I". We have much more in common than we have differences. We are one!

If you would meditate on that, I think you will find, that “little you” or “little me”, matters not so much, as the actions we take and choose together (as individuals). We are much more like one, than we are 8 billion individuals.

(even though we ARE individuals too).

My clock says 4:20 too!

weird, since it's only 2:40.

Thank you J.P,

you have a good heart, and we send love and light to you. I've found your posts/comments to be very interesting, maybe because of your different perspective. Thanks again.

A treasure chest buried in your garden? haha

To climb the mountain, you must believe you can.

Yes, but no longer, now i have a hole and a big pile of dirt. Will leave it 'till tomorrow. Its almost sunday here (local time)!

I have kids, its important for them to relate to the value of real money, having to be hidden away :-)

A few years ago, it was only a joke, but my oldest son kept telling me, dad, a treasure has to be burried. So we did!

This deserves a bump!

Thank you!

Great post!
Good heart!
Very generous gift!

Love to you and MAN and S.

Thank you, you have a lot of passion, it shines through. Much appreciated!

That was very nice!

Wish my garden grew silver, or at least had a money tree so I could convert to silver.

Edit: I guess it all depends on what seeds you sow.
