Our Human Family

A rare jewel among our species, Maggie Doyne has done what so many of us deeply desire: to single-handedly attempt to change the world, impact humanity, and utterly trust that the money and the means will show up to accomplish it. She inspires us to know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that if she can do this, we are all capable of creating something similar. Let’s all remember our human family, and engage with positivite activity to connect and create a better home for us all.

Becoming a Modern Nomad

I am a restless soul. Every moment of every day of my life must count for something, mean something, or I get very restless. I need to be where I am needed most; where I am nourished most. It’s a great big world out there. Why settle in one spot, decay and rot, in the name of putting down roots? We’re not trees. Humans have legs that are made for walking.

It took me many, many years to accept my nomadic self. The excuse to move has always been for work experience, a career move, more affordable cost of living. The truth is, my feet itch, my spirit yearns for renewal of Self, of fresh eyes, new perspectives, greater awareness, expanded possibilities. The traditional: own a home, have a family, get the latest devices everyone else has, while ‘nice’, has never been a motivation for me. In fact, once I acquire a certain amount of material possessions, there is a point at which it feels so burdensome, I need to get rid of it entirely. This is true to some degree of places I live, and even people (if they are stagnant in their own lives).

I used to be hard on myself about this. Like, it’s wrong. Like, I should be settled and own a home at my age. I should stick with my job because who’s going to give me another when fresh blood is so bountiful? But, this is my life, and I’m going to do it my way, and the consequences may not actually be so bad from my point of view. To some, the worst thing in the world may be to have nothing. But imagine the freedom!

The tribal way was nomadic. If a place no longer served, the community got up and shifted elsewhere. At a time when there were no borders, where instincts and intuition were followed, when shamans led and the people trusted, this is the innate natural behaviour of the human being on earth. Modern society is so fixated on ownership, on insurance, on legal boundaries – all oppressive fear-inducing tactics – resulting in depression, stuckness, and suicide (of spirit, if not body). For me, this kind of life is something I no longer accept.

It wasn’t until I fully accepted the possibility that I could become homeless, penniless, jobless and wind up with nothing – that I could begin to let go of all my possessions to free myself entirely of their responsibility, so I could be true to the wandering spirit that I am and live as a modern nomad. It is getting to a place of Fearlessness of the Unknown.

As I shed the excess baggage I’ve accumulated, I remain open to any and all possibilities that come my way. Open to learning, being, becoming, evolving.

Is there any other way to live? For me, this is the best way to live!

New Beginnings

The Clarity Tribe has been on a Journey of ever-growing magnitude. It began on an airplane to Faro. It intensified throughout a week in Praia da Rocha. It now continues to unfold in Portugal and the United Kingdom.

We have truly left behind past pathways and venture now into new paradigms.

Come join us.

Be Seen and Known

In his article Why do I think that community is so important for Inspired Entrepreneurs? author Nick Williams states there are 7 reasons for the importance of community. Reason 4 particularly strikes a chord for us at Clarity Tribe. Nick says:

We need to be seen and known – in community, other people see our gifts and talents, let us know what they see, and help us see ourselves in ways that we may not see ourselves. The African concept of Ubuntu says, “I am what I am because of who we all are.”

This is precisely the aim of Clarity Tribe. We want to share with each other, reflect back, learn and celebrate ourselves as individuals and as a community. We All win! Please share your comments, thoughts and ideas with us!

Welcome to Clarity Tribe!

This is a brand new blog that aims to bring you moments of clarity from a special ‘tribe’ of friends. This tribe is on a conscious spiritual journey. We seek to learn, understand and grow. We share insights and learn through each other’s experiences. We hope to inspire and unite people everywhere to make this world a better place: a healed world, where peace and love is the underlying motivation to all the things we do, and the basis of who we are.
