Rain

I love rain. In Queensland when it rains it is warm so you can be out in it for ages.

Ants:

Have you ever wondered how ants plug up their holes so water doesn’t get into their nest? This is what we observed in one species last week, a living ‘door’

Termites

Termites making an addition to their nest. We watched them a few weeks ago and their skills in building, teamwork & cooperation is incredible

Fungi

A few days before the day of rain we had a couple of smaller storms and all kinds of fungi began sprouting out up out of the debosia and hardwood chip

These ones looked like flowers and if they are left on paper they leave a flower like spore pattern

Bright Yellow Fungi

These fungi look similar to coral. They open with moisture and stay tightly closed when dry

Eating Meat Is Destroying Our Planet

Discoveries Along The Way

Hi my name is Pete Lytton-Hitchins. I was born a country boy and ever since I can remember all I wanted to do was be a sheep and cattle farmer. I remember the first time I killed a kangaroo, the first time I fell off a horse and I used to think all I would ever do was be a sheep and cattle farmer.

With the help of my family over a period of 20 years we own and killed over 100,000 sheep and 10,000 head of cattle.

In 2015 we sold the farm and stopped making money from meat farming. I say the words “meat farming” because when we farm animals we are in the business of producing kilograms of meat for human consumption.

I gave up what I thought was my life long passion. Once I released that eating meat and killing animals was wrong I no longer…

What I’m Learning About The Environment & Land Recovery

I have spent much of my life so far focused on Results. If I want to plant a tree, I want to plant it now. In the past I was happy spending lots of money bringing in big machinery like tractors and graders to get instant results that then take even more money to maintain the projects long term. It was a very costly and an extremely ineffective way to heal land destruction.

Over the past few years I have had the privilege of seeing how Jesus looks after his land and shares his thoughts on how to make loving eco systems and help with environmental recovery. There is a talk on the Divine Truth website that covers a lot of this information in detail called ‘Creating Loving Eco Systems‘ and can be found at the links you will find at the bottom of this post*.

The information below is based upon my personal experience with what has been shared and shown to me over this time.

When I observe Jesus caring for the environment his main concern is working out how God cares for the environment and then replicating that any way he can. This means things take time and that there is a natural order of how to heal land.

The modern way to make soil fertile is to add fertilisers and use heavy machinery to aerate and break down soil compaction. Gods Way I’m learning is very different

Gods Way is all about holding water/moisture in the soil and creating fertility through the intelligence in the soil. The intelligence is living creatures, organisms and seeds that live in the eco system. By looking after the seeds and feeding the creatures and organisms real recovery can then begin. Fungi, earthworms and ants are all examples of intelligence we want to grow and encourage in the eco system.

The first step should be to protect the soil and allow seeds to grow. This starts with removing grazing animals that constantly eat the shoots and leaves of seeds that germinate. Each seed has inbuilt intelligence and will only grow when the environment is suited to it’s germination. The more seeds germinate and are constantly eaten by animals the less seeds the soil has for the next cycle.

Think about this process happening for 100’s of years and you can start to see how serious this problem becomes. The soil gets no new seeds and all the seeds that do germinate get eaten. Gods Way of looking after soil is no longer working effectively. No seeds and less and less plant life creates a drier environment which eventually becomes a man made desert. The living creatures and organisms that thrived in the environment are no longer able to exist.

When the grazing animals are removed first generation seeds can start to germinate. These plants are mostly seen as weeds. They have the toughest job to do. They can grow in little fertility, need less water and sometimes have a tap root to help open up compaction. In some cases they are also not very attractive to animals and are spikey or prickly. This is often the only way they can survive. Ideally they are legume plants that release nitrogen into the soil. Australian wattles are a good example of first generation plants also known as ‘pioneer plants’ that start the healing process to rebuilding soil fertility.

So how do we create an environment that supports the living creatures and organisms essential to making a sustainable eco-system?

Firstly we need to provide the Food, Water and Shelter (a home) that all life needs. This becomes the focus. In some cases we need to re introduce the intelligence as well. Earthworms are a great example of intelligence we can re introduce into the system once we have the necessary food available.

Food swales and trenches are one way we can create a home that can feed the intelligence that makes the soil.

Swales are a man made bank built on a contour. The idea is for the swale to collect and hold water. With a food swale* we take this one step further and fill the water collection side of the bank with organic matter and hence the name “Food Swale”. The organic matter becomes the food feeding the system. The organic matter used can be anything from waste food scraps to hay and newspaper or bales of cardboard. This organic material becomes a sponge that releases moisture and nutrients out slowly. It’s a fertility bank full of life. When it rains we are now collecting all the water we possibly can and keeping it in the landscape as long as possible. The landscape is now becoming hydrated for longer periods of time.

The organic matter we bring into the system we want to break down slowly through decomposition rather than composting. Decomposition is Gods Way, a slow release over time that supports the whole of the eco system and takes time. When we compost we create heat, which kills life in the organic matter and breaks down fast. Composting has no intelligence. Decomposition is full of intelligence. With decomposition creatures have a home and food.

A Trench is similar to a food swale expect this time everything is below ground rather than on the top. A Trench is an underground hole that is built on contour. The trench is then filled with organic matter just like the food swale. Its size can vary depending on how much organic matter you have available. You can build these trenches quite deep so they are like an underground water reservoir full of life on top. The benefit of the trench is that it can hold more matter and water than a swale.

The aim for both food swale’s and trenches is to create life in the system. The more we feed the intelligence the more the intelligence feeds the soil.

One of the first noticeable changes is the amount of flying insects and ants that appear. As more abundance is created bigger creatures and birds start arriving and feasting on all the tasty food now in the eco system.

It is also amazing how long water/moisture stays in the system once it is no longer been lost through evaporation and is been collected and stored when ever it rains rather than flowing off the landscape.

One way you can experiment at home is by digging a pit in your backyard and filling it up with your kitchen scraps and any other organic matter you have around the house. Cover the green waste with a layer of dry organic matter like sugar cane mulch or shredded up newspaper to help with the smell. See what happens and then maybe in a year or so plant a seed on top of the pit. You will be amazed at all the life that turns up and the beautiful soil it then creates.

Happy Experimenting

Peter

‘At Our House’ – A Story about Loving Restriction

20170527 Note to Reader:

My friend Mary gave me some feedback on some issues with this story not being completely truthful. I want to correct this before sharing it.

Because I want the story to be a truthful representation of what happened and our family dynamic at the time I have temporarily removed the links to this story as there are some modifications I need to make.

It is very important to me that it accurately reflect Parents responsibility in what happens in a house hold. For example how Parents unhealed emotional injuries are reflected by children and it is the parents unhealed emotions that attract spirit influence. In the story I was blaming spirits rather than portraying how the influence happens.

There were some fundamental errors in what I wrote mainly in that it is not clear enough that personal responsibility and working emotionally through everything out of harmony with love within yourself (the parent) is what changes the family dynamic the most.

The book was suggesting that spirits are entirely responsible for children making mischief, this is not true or accurate.

There is a combination of factors that create the dynamic. In our house the reason that the children acted out as they did and the spirit influence was so great was due to a combination of fears Pete and I had (some we still have) that we were refusing to feel about and the law of attraction at work to help us to work through these.

As I have emotionally worked through some personal issues things have improved in our home. The improvement is due to me (the adult) emotionally releasing some false beliefs, being truthful and honest and beginning a process of feeling how I really feel. I then choose to uphold love more and it is my choices becoming more in harmony with love that are making the difference.

It was due to me being told the truth by Jesus & Mary, my choice to be truthful about my soul condition to myself and experiment with God’s truth that caused things to begin to change.

Our personal choices and taking personal responsibility are paramount in what happens in our life! I want this story to reflect that and currently it doesn’t, so I am editing it.

Love

I wrote a children’s book a couple of years ago (2015) and am sharing it as a pdf (link to come).

It is titled:

At Our House – A Story about Loving Restriction

I have done it as a pdf so you can print it and make it into a book if you want to. If you print it out on heavier duty paper, double sided with the short edge binding option (landscape) it ought to print out neatly and be able to be bound or stapled on the left hand edge.

I have also attached some brief notes to parents about loving restriction & Spirit Influence which can be found in the second pdf

****20170304 Addition made

It has been a while since the last post so I thought that an update of what has been happening was in order.

God’s Way Ltd

  • Was incorporated in September 2016.
  • Purchased a property in November 2016.
  • Has been engaging in some projects and the Directors have been learning how to direct.
  • There is a lot of potential for the God’s Way project and I look forward to the year ahead.

    Learning Centre early morning

November Assistance Groups – Understanding God’s Loving Laws:

Jesus and Mary shared, presented and gave the gift & opportunity to participate in another Assistance Group in November (they are filmed so the opportunity is available to ‘attend’ from your own home if you desire). They planned & prepared (over 500 hours), presented the two groups (over 60 hours all together) and then have spent the last two months producing all the information for public consumption (heaps more hours! link to where audio and video links will be posted when post production is complete is below).

It was a huge effort and from their own admission only a mere stroking of the surface of the subject matter.

There was so much to take in and now a life time of potential investigation to actually understand what Jesus and Mary were presenting. With God being an infinite being there is an infinite amount to find out so our education is infinite.

During the group it became apparent that a relationship with God is going to be essential in order to actually understand any of the higher laws of love. I found them to be very inspiring higher laws.

Personal Reflections on Attending AG3.2:

For me personally I got challenged, confronted emotionally in regards to how out of harmony with God’s Laws I am and how much I want my own ‘’law’. I felt relieved that I have just been mis-educated and that I have the opportunity to learn, grow and find out more. I liked that being in Harmony with Law makes life smooth and enjoyable filled with benefits and being out of harmony with Law makes it feel uncomfortable and painful. (I liked the first part rather than the second part. But It is good to know the consequences of breaking law as there is more incentive to stop and I felt less generally ‘stressed out’).

There was a lot of questions answered and fears alleviated and also fears and addictions highlighted during the groups.

It was an opportunity to see love in action and I now have an opportunity to experiment, investigate and apply the information and see what happens next.

Thank you to Jesus & Mary for the gift of the groups and opportunity to learn new things. And to J&M & Lena and Igor for your time, instruction and training in regards to filming, recording and set up and dismantling equipment during the group.

Thank you for the Donations:

I wanted to thank all of you who donated towards my time during the days that I helped out with the filming in the first Assistance Group. I am so grateful for your donations and they covered most of my accommodation costs for the group.

It is such a gift to have the opportunity to learn new skills in filming while listening to God’s Truth (snippets between concentration) and to receive donations for doing something that I really enjoy!

Pete & I  would also like to thank those of you who have donated independently of the Assistance Groups, we are really grateful for the contributions that you have made and really appreciate the gift!

And lastly to thank various people, businesses and organisations for non-monetary gifts and donations that are just as valuable, such as scraps for our little property to help create soil, For volunteered time that helped us to complete our house and various jobs that needed doing. We appreciate the effort of your time and resources!

Little house in The Bush complete:

We finished off our little house in the bush and I moved in during December.

It is such a lovely place and we are enjoying the quiet and planning more projects on all sorts of topics including to help repair the property from an environmental perspective alongside repairing our souls.

Thanks Corny for all your work and attention to detail to make the house so lovely to live in.

Thanks to our visitors for the help in doing the final clean and tidy before move in day!

Opportunities:

Jesus and Mary gave the gift of some training opportunities over the last few months with some people from overseas and it was an opportunity to learn new principles and skills and see what is really involved in post production of the Assistance Groups!

I have a lot of admiration for the skills and time Jesus gifts to get the material he and Mary create out to the world.

I think everyone learned a lot who was involved in the training programme and I am looking forward to implementing some of it in the up coming Volunteers Induction Programme and editing some video and audio material that I have been collaborating in creating recently.

God’s Way of Education Project:

Tristan and I did an introductory presentation for a small audience in early January.

It was fun and challenging all in one.

We had our first tastes of setting up a venue, recording everything and presenting.

There is lots to learn and we have the post production side of things to still come.

Tris and I are planning to do more videos on our ideas, desires and intentions in the near future for this project and an Adult/Parenting Education programme and we will be publishing them publically for those of you who are interested in learning more.

I would like to Thank Tris for his presentation and his time and mentoring of Pete and I and the kids on this project so far.

We want to thank those who helped us out before, during and after the event:

Jesus for training in audio, video & post production and how to give a presentation

Lena for audio and general set up advice and dismantling, video and editing advice

Nicky for being on Audience camera

Courtney & David for being our mic runners

Pete for cleaning and helping to organise the venue

Participants for coming along and creating an audience.

Particular thank you to those who asked questions!

Waterless Garden Presentation

Pete gave a presentation of the basic elements of setting up a waterless garden that can be scaled up or down. He also conveyed his love and the importance of worms as soil creators and how to set up a working wormfarm.

Basic Elements he covered:

  1. Water Reservoir
  2. Overflow – so soil does not get saturated and plants don’t die
  3. Wicking system – draws up water through a medium/s from the reservoir so that the garden remains ‘self watering’ (you need to top it up every few months or so)
  4. Soil – vital to nourish & feed the plants also how you can make it from your own waste and household ‘rubbish’
  5. Plants – determine the size of the garden you are going to make

Participants got to trial out methods of waterless garden creation in a practical demonstration. They experimented with a number of different construction methods and ideas inspired on the day.

The idea was to be able to go home and create your own waterless garden & worm farm, with the materials available to you (or a basic set up being able to be purchased for under $100 AUD at the local hardware store) and encourage people to recycle household waste. Including but not limited to: green waste, paper/cardboard etc, human manure and how these materials can create great soil with the help of the intelligent life such as worms.

Where we are at personally:

I have been so busy that it has been a bit crazy with little time to properly connect to myself. This has created some issues of ‘going away’ from myself when things have come up and going into management mode.

I have a little more time in the coming weeks and am going to take some time out (along with planning various projects) to find out how I feel about all the things that have been happening in my life.

Pete and I are sorting through a lot of relationship issues which we are finding challenging at times. But we hope that by breaking down all that is unloving in our relationship and working through the emotions of why it is this way we will get to a new place that is based on Love and Truth permanently.

We will see how it goes.

We have enjoyed the holidays with the kids and didn’t want them to end. We have been looking at Desire and how to create an environment that upholds loving positive change and our resistances to doing so each and every day.

Our consistency needs to become far more consistent and there is much room for improvement. We have noticed that if the emotions in us as parents don’t change and are not released it makes it difficult for the children to have the room to change.

Expecting children to change when you refuse to as a parent is hypocritical and we have some work to do on this personally.

There is so much to be grateful for in our lives and reflecting on the year gone by it has been full to the brim with opportunities and new learning experiences. I desire this year to keep growing and work through the issues that prevent a solid relationship with God. I am feeling challenged often and am so glad for the Assistance Group material so that I can go back and work through all the resistances and various issues that are presenting themselves.

Until next time

Love

Eloisa

A snippet of what I found out personally about how I feel about ‘parenting’ and some of my experiences and discoveries during that process…

dscn2281

My life now in comparison to five years ago is different in a few areas, especially in regards to children. I am happier, less tired, have actually experienced joy. I am able to do things I want to do at times. I enjoy hanging out with the kids. I want to. It doesn’t feel like such a chore. I am desiring more and more to teach them to look after themselves rather than being ‘mummy dependent’. I can hold a conversation with someone, our house is not a total mess all of the time now, the kids wash their own dishes – still needs work. They dress themselves, make their own lunches and breakfasts. We go shopping and it takes…
