April 15, 1937 – August 24, 2016
Rudy died peacefully on the 24th of August 2016 at 3:40pm, surrounded by the love of his family, both immediate and extended.
Following is what he wrote for this webpage.
We rock on, because we are celebrating the sustainability of our community. It is important for us in our present local concerns and practical endeavours to keep in mind the larger vision that is playing itself out in our lives. Sustainability will remain just another political ploy. A privatized bureaucratic ideology until there is eco tenancy, being at home.
A real tenant is not someone who pays a parasite landlord more than they deserve or what tenants meaningfully though their own creative efforts can afford. Th landlord/tenant societal relationship construct is the slavery of a bovinity, culminating in mad cow disease. It is a social consciousness mask, behind which the politics of denial, injustice, and inequality are mischievously perpetuated, the blame lying in the ignorance and lack of self worth of each of us individually.
Eco tenants are tender caring folks that tenaciously tend the land with which they have lovingly bonded. Consider the etymological roots of a feudal villain, who is just a peaceful village peasant rubbed the wrong way too long. Obviously, the social identity of Eco-Tenancy cannot be built or pursued privately, or individualistically, or egotistically. Nor can it be bought, or conveniently claimed as an elect status, for it is already naturally inherent in each of us as members of the human family.
This here, now, first, truly self-governed, destiny-sanctioned, eco-village light community is now germinating! It is sprouting in this the springtime of our spirit vision, to become the first activated cultural center in a liberating circuit of twelve model communities that will encircle and embrace the globe, as a humane organic gemstone bracelet extended as a planetary gift to our stellar parents in the starry belt of Orion. For we are starseed brought to this Mother sphere as a seed program 20,000 years ago to upgrade the existing life and to be a leaven in the bread of the preceding humanities as the true salt of the earth.
We have remained incubated in our exodus from East to West through the purifying vicissitudes of the process of history and as foretold have come to this most western destination, the land of the eagle out of which has risen the nemesis of democracy to be transformed by us into the Phoenix rising and the dove of peace descending. We no longer have the time for social experiments or to pursue escapist utopian communal retreats, on the contrary, we are advancing into full activation of the seed we each are, sprouting indomitably in this, our garden island of life and light, making the soil sing and our flesh divine and our children dance in ecstasy.
There are two ways to believe in the miracles, one based in reality, the other in fantasy. The miracle of transformation is said to be a shift in perception, but perception generally is the close minded stinking thinking of a consciousness bound in crystallized polarizations. We have had our back against the wind of spirit carrying us from East to West. Then we were told we would have a planetary reversal of poles, but why do we continue to look outside for what is playing itself out within? We each of us have just had a microcosmic reversal of poles within ourselves, activating the slubmering seed we were embryonically, into an exuberant joyful sprouting, and as andividual trees of life, we now root and turn our shining faces to where the light recreates each new day, for us to cultivate and sustain our garden land and family life, this is what here we celebrate!
So let it be, and let it be so!
