The Five Steps to Freedom

Sacred Living is based on the internalizing and living these Five Steps to Freedom:

Step One: KNOW THYSELF

Discover the treasures of your biological and spiritual ancestry, environment, innate temperament, life-purpose, and most importantly, engaging in psycho-spiritual purification in order to attain the loftiest heights of your own soul through meditation, invocation, fasting, service, and solitary retreat;

Step Two: HEAL THYSELF

Apply the science and art of healing the body, mind, and soul through Natural Living along with using traditional and inspired natural remedies and your inner faculties for your primary health care needs;

Step Three: FREE THYSELF

Nurture a culture of material detachment;
Grow fiber, process textiles, and produce our own clothing locally;
Sacred economics, budgeting, saving, mindful spending, wise investing, charitable giving, along with building a sacred business around your gifts, (for more on sacred gift economy, please go here); and,
Help others build their own sacred businesses that are interconnected with your own;

Step Four: SUSTAIN THYSELF

Establish Community Homesteads for reaping the health, financial, and spiritual benefits of growing, harvesting, and preserving our own food, as well as securing our own water, clothing, and energy from natural, local, and renewable sources;

Step Five: TRANSCEND THYSELF

The commitment to:
a) teach others what you have embodied from the above four principles,
b) experience the presence of The Creator through the core of your innermost being,
c) join like-minded and like-spirited people of other religions and spiritual traditions in serving and fulfilling the needs of the poorest, loneliest, most vulnerable and oppressed people in your city, and
d) build urban, suburban, and rural Community Homesteads and intentional communities modeled after communities like the traditional Haitian lakou system.

And success is solely with The Creator
