Expressing Your HippienessReturn to Discussions
What is the way you most usually express your hippieness (if that is a word)? I mean I still love the bands from the hippie wave (e.g., Jefferson Airplane), but the time I spend in the forest naked connecting with nature seems most hippie-like (or may be pagan). Also, the time I spend at a laid back, minimally commercial, hot springs with other naked people has a hippie vibe to it. What does it take to be a hippie now days, or once a hippie, always a hippie?
I recognize that each generation makes its own reality; the hippies did that, but we have no monopoly on the phenomenon, so I work to be accepting of young people wherever they are coming from.
I spend time naked in nature.
I consider the impact of my footprint on the planet.
I resist labels: I have qualms about "nudist", for that matter, but it's the name of the site.
I do the organic / natural-fiber / home-cooked thing.
I organize and maintain a bulk-buying club.
I hitchhike, and I pick up hitchhikers.
I haven't cut my hair for fifty years.
Steve - love your lifestyle, and we are part of the way there. We are fortunate to be able to source locally for many things. The challenge is that we have a 60 day growing season, which is limiting. The hair thing is the one thing I can't seem to do. Mine just gets bushy, not long. Too much body, and it get too annoying.
I embrace what being a Hippie means the Music is very important but the Love of Mother Earth is most important from recycling to composting getting involved locally I Love spending time outside in the forrest and beaches and shedding my clothes to be one with the world .
I keep in touch with nature, swimming in sea, lakes and rivers, spending a lot of time in forest, taking sunbaths at beach. Sharing energy with other people, changing massages, body touching and spreading good energy to the world and to the people
Sun worshiping, just a little these days.
Did you know that 20-30 minutes nude in the sun harvestes a similar amount of vitamin D as you would get from drinking over 200 glasses of whole milk !
I do all my yard work nude.
I leave home nude, drive to one of several trailheads and hike naked without carrying any clothes with me that would dull my senses.
I still listen to the real musicians of a time gone by.
Over on the mountain thunder magic spoke,
He said, Let the people know my wisdom,, fill the land with smoke
The hills are alive and I am there.
