... 🌲 🌲 Here's the updated bushcraft belt kit. The leather suspenders really help distribute the weight well. 🌲 My anorak was crafted from an old wool blanket last year as well as a bushcraft chair, but the chair is no longer with us. 🌲 Highly motivated for Winter's arrival... 🌲 #woolanorak #leathersuspenders #bushcraftbeltkit #firekitpouch #smallforestaxe #bahcofoldingsaw #elkskingloves #bushcrafterknife #ferroceriumrod #huntingknife #foragingpouch 🌲 🌲 #thehiddenwoodsmenarmy #adventurelife #woodsmenofinstagram #wildernessculture #outdoorlife #wildernessskills #selfreliance #sonsofnessmuk #scoutlife #savagescout #mountainman #woodsman #bushcrafter #scoutlakai #maukaman #maukatomakai

So, yeah maybe I'm the only person on earth who didn't know about this, but I've never ridden a horse, owed a horse or played a horse on TV. What I'm referring to is a "boot jack" that makes removing any boot, work or fashion, smooth as silk! #AMustOnTheHomestead

🙏💙 To be of service comes from within and it uses all your gifts and talents, the medicine you were born to share. It inspires you, enlivens you and brings meaning, purpose and flow. When service is disembodied, meaning that it comes from the intellect, the “I should” ego and the logical part of ourselves, it drains us, depletes us, and brings us further away from the feeling of wholeness and inner freedom we desire. We don’t plan for true service, we simply are it, every moment, and we have all the tools to engage it. We just forgot how. Listen and feel the impulse in the present of your desire to support, uplifts, to elevate someone’s suffering, and engage it spontaneously in the moment. These moments will reveal so much to you about the “how” service wants to express through you 💙🙏 #service #howmayiserve #dharma #purpose #leadership #leadyourself #selfreliance #befeelthinkdo

How much do you hate the things you suck at? . I remember when I was in early elementary school and I was struggling with reading. I hated my homework and I hateddd reading. As usual, my mom pushed me. She pushed and pushed and I improved and improved. And before I knew it, I was reading constantly. For fun and at high school levels. My mom would get pissed every time she bought the new Harry Potter book and I’d read it in a day or two. 😂 That’s the thing about goals and things we want to improve. It is something you don’t have and you want, or it is something you’re not great at, and want to be great at. It’s not always going to be fun. You have to get uncomfortable. You have to push. You’re going to suck in the beginning, and fail and fail, and improve in the smallest ways. . So, set your goals high. Give yourself small steps to that higher goal. Pat yourself on the back for the little improvements and celebrate yourself as you work your way there. 👏🏼 . PS: pull-ups. I suuuck at pull-ups. . . . . #happyfriday #goals #ptulafamily #ptulaactive #asseenincolumbus #614 #westerville #pullups #meatball #selfreliance #fitchicks

Yesterday I had a ton of work done on my back piece, so I won’t be able to carry in my favorite 4 o’clock position for a while. 😒everything literally disappears right there- it’s so easy!

One of the happiest moments of my life has been having many of my closest friends, my girlfriend, and few family members all celebrating in one place. 💎💎💎💎 There are benchmarks moments in life where many of our loved ones gather for a special occasion. 💎💎💎💎 My most recent experience was when @sophia.sun.wellness succeeded in throwing me a surprise party for my birthday. 💎💎💎💎 I didn't realize how much I crave family, community, brotherhood, and fellowship. 💎💎💎💎 Through synchronicity I went to a men's meet up in Los Angeles 7 days after my party hosted by @consciousmanbrotherhood and @prestonsmiles. That event further opened my eyes to the deep emotional need for tribal connection that only comes through trust, compassion, and understanding. 💎💎💎💎 I believe that in our current society we lack the full net of support necessary for our development. A big family culture, team and community is created through intent, effort, and deliberate open communication. 💎💎💎💎 A plan of action and honest check-ins are necessary to lay a strong foundation in building this type of community. Organizations and tools like @sbhustlers and @servecommunity address these issues on a global scale. 💎💎💎💎 On a daily basis we all bring individual massive value to the table. But how are we truly communing? Beyond contributing, creating, and collaborating; how are we holding safe containers to heal, grow and transform amongst each other? 💎💎💎💎 If you have ideas, thoughts on this please leave a comment or DM. I'm here to participate and get involved. Let's share ideas on creating more sacred space to bond and connect more honestly and deliberately in our every day life. 💎💎💎💎 I dwell in gratitude for the people I'm blessed to have in my life. I dwell in gratitude for the visions we hold that crossover in order to further their actualization. I am in constant gratitude because I exist, you exist, and we exist- and many combinations of possibility are available because of that. 💎💎💎💎 Thank you for being in my life in some way. We all affect each other whether we know it or not. I take this responsibility quite seriously. 💎💎💎

I decided to read this because my cousin @g_soto_g speaks highly of the author and has adapted a lot of his philosophy to his own life. I do not know if it is me, but most of the content just flew over my head. It seemed deep and at sometimes poetic, which is not a strength I have when reading. I guess I have to build my intellectual capacity to comprehend most of the content to get the most from this book.

Just got back from a trip to my grandparents-in-laws' place. They had some trees cut down and offered the firewood to us, so I went over to help limb out the tops of the trees before the rain set in. The "old buzzard" ran the lawn tractor and picked up the brush while I got acquainted with the second handle on my boys axe. I've gotta admit, in a parallel to @skillcult 's experience (and every old time logger ever), a thin handle is a sweet chopper. But may the axe gods be merciful if you overstrike. 🤣😬🙏

Two slate slickers with wooden handles from the Muir McDonald Tannery in Dallas Oregon photographed during my visit there in 1997. I think the one on the right has screws to clamp the blade in. I wish I had known to pay attention to that back then and has taken more notes. The tannery closed down some years later. they used a lot of machines, but the newest machine, the owner bragged, was from the 30’s and measured the square footage of hides run through. The slickers shown here are one of the main specialized tools for finishing vegetable tanned leather. The edge is fully rounded and polished for smoothing the grain surface and laying the skin flat. Simple ones can be made with stone tiles, pieces of roofing slate. squares of thick glass, and I’ve even used hardwood in a pinch. They can also still be purchased new and I have a link in my amazon store on the skillcult site to one that looks okay, but you should really just make one :) More on slickers and what they are used for in my latest YouTube video on tools used in barktanning. #naturaltanning #traditionaltanning #barktanning #barktan #leatherworking #leatherworkers #tanners #traditionaltanners #lostarts #howto #vegetabletanning #vegtan #oaktan #oaktanning #hometanning #hometanners #muirmcdonaldtannery #traditionalarts #leathertools #tanningtools #toolsofthetanner #selfreliance #skills #tools #traditionaltools #handmade #crafts #currier #curryingleather

Promiscuity and depth. ----------------------------------- Each teacher's dream is not be heard, but to be listened to. If there's something I want to pass to future brains is the idea of self-reliance. You're the tree house, but you're also its builder. Enjoy yourself as you are and indulge in whatever passions make you feel alive. If your blood ain't boiling when doing it, it ain't it, friend. When you've done, maybe you can find some meaning or purpose. I'll be patiently waiting to share the revelations together. There is no single form of enlightenment. There are billions of ways. One for each of us. Stop looking for the promiscuity of the neon signs and start looking at the doors they point towards. Practice self reliance. Often. ---------------------------------------------------------- #entrepreneur #grind #hustle #growth #journey #intensity #lovelife #money #empathy #promiscuous #neon #selflove #selfreliance #freedom #liberty #forest #treehouse #nightphotography #carradio #sometimes #quiet #strong #power #writersofinstagram #passion #ihaveadream

I built this chicken house about five years ago out of recycled wood. After many bear attacks the old house is looking tired. Luckily none of my girls have been eaten. I built the house so it would be strong and predator proof. I also built it in mind of our cold winters. It is insulated and doubled walled. I had to piece together the door, after a bear ripped off the outer door and last night something tried to break in via the window. My husband told me if I wanted chickens I had to build there house and take care of it myself. I guess my day is cut out for me, meaning quick repairs. At the moment it is doing it's job, but next year when the weather is better I would like to fix it up and make it look a little prettier. I would love to also let my girls free range, but the unfortunate thing is, we have too many predators living right next to the forest. . . #chickens #predatorproof #chickenhouse #recycledwood #homesteading #countrylife #countrylifeisthebest #selfreliance #bearproof #chickenrun #homemade #makeityourself #handywoman #lovetobuild #woodworker #buildityourself #repairs #keepmychickenssafe #canadianhomesteading #bchomesteading #chickenlove #cluckoff #cluckoffpredators

My personality synthetized in one pic... 😃 I am basically a cat mistakenly born as human! 😼 . I have free access at will to my 4 different states of mind ✌ . ...😼 My default ego is INTJ 5w6, The Mastermind - subtype The Genius: "This INTJ is automatically perceived as an intellectual. The Genius has at least one area of study in which they are experts but they usually are well versed in other fields. Time and personal space is important to all INTJs but it is a theme and constantly on the mind of this subtype. They are clearly objective and unhindered by emotions. These traits allow them to conceive data and use it efficiently. They may fear being engulfed by crowds and are very sensitive to noise. Recharging is not a luxury, it is a necessity. Geniuses are the most introverted of the INTJ subtypes and would prefer conversations that are deep and engaging to their intellect. Being cynical and dry-witted often leaves them misunderstood unless they associate with others of the same mind-set. The Genius is mostly withdrawn and hides vulnerability. They stand back and observe. This allows them to see far more than what the five senses provide. A world-view is a primary mode of perception and details are consciously and subconsciously gathered for its construction." ...🕵 Unconscious ego ENTP. This side gives me detective skills, high creativity, great manipulation skills and also some trolling tendencies (Socrates, one of the greatest trolls of all times, was an ENTP). ...💥 Subconscious ego ESFP... Active, warm, affiliative and extremely sensual side (Hefner, the founder of Playboy, was an ESFP). . ...👌Superego ISFJ... ISFJ superego is normally a twisted version of an healthy ISFJ ego trying to take over the default ego. I also learned how to use this side positively - thus being very loyal and protective to my dear ones in my inner circle.... . ✌ Plus I can emulate the communication style of all the other 12 MBTIs not included in my personality matrix 👌 . ...Stay tuned for more info on the topic of the art of communication with my third book, which it's coming soon on lulu.com/spotlight/theinteriorlight

It’s so crazy but as I share what I’ve learned about fulfillment most of it makes no sense, has no support in our surroundings nor instinct. Who wants to be humiliated? And who would actively seek that out? It seems like self hatred. But it’s not, it is absolutely necessary. We are so entitled by nature, so comfort-seeking. Look around and see every type of victim wanting justice for what was done to them. This is the new era. It’s enough to be offended by a word these days to justify being miserable. Meanwhile others around the world don’t have clean water, not enough food or quality food. And our grandparents went through absolute hell in the world wars. I see to what degree people will go to avoid humiliation, They’ll spend a life adhering to convention, get a job they actually hate, marry someone they don’t really love, wear clothes they don’t really like and so on. I find when I’ve gone into what made me uncomfortable, scared and so on, 99.99% of the time bliss was on the other side. Once in a blue moon I got severely injured, but even that seems to be positive in he long run. When you accept humiliation you find there is nothing there. Everyone does stupid things, are full of flaws. They just hide that part of themselves. So who is to really judge you? To be free you have to be in that space where it doesn’t matter if you win or lose, it doesn’t matter what people think of you, or if a wild predator might take you. That’s what I’ve learned. #mastery #lifelessons #philosophy #lifecoach #contemporaryart #success #humiliation #truth #enlightenment #embracethesuck #hardship #theway #fitness #victim #freedom #selfmade #selfreliance #survival

Day 19 #gettoknowahomesteader Scavenger Hunt—A job I don’t like but I’m glad when it’s done. CANNING. I hate to admit this: I do not enjoy canning our produce. At all. It’s tedious, hot, and takes a long time. Nope. I much prefer dehydrating, fermenting, or freezing. However, there are some things that must be canned, either because we have so much food to use, or it’s just the best way. But boy, oh BOY! I am very very happy when the canning is done. I really need to buckle down and buy a pressure canner for meats and non-acidic foods at some point. But not having one gives me a great excuse! I just water bath these days. 😂😂 #homesteading #foodpreservation #gladwhenitsdone #selfreliance #canning #canningseason #gettoknowahomesteader

2018 LOG .. OCT.19 Time to get serious about strength and agility. I spend a lot of time sitting down — either coding, doing TA, communicating, reading or whatching NFL. This fall I started to try to run 5k every weekday. I'm also looking to do weights 3 times per week - my goal is to reach a body mass of 190 pounds (85kg). My other health focus is: sleeping 8hrs every night from 10.30pm to 6.30am, drink lots of water, no dairy, no sugar, and slowly get off coffee. Exciting times! --- #smartcontracts #blockchain #bitcoin #ethereum #decred #ripple #rustlang #webassembly #wasm #crypto #cryptocurrency #digitalcurrency #explained #banks #money #cash #contract #consumer #vendor #markets #beginners #basics #dummies #howto #learning #ico #erc20 #erc721 #investing #selfreliance

Recently did some reading about the science of fire. Learnt that combustion results when fuel is heated to a point when it releases gases. And it’s these gas molecules that then mix with oxygen to produce light (the flame we see), water vapour, heat, carbon dioxide, etc. The heat released creates a chain reaction, heating up more fuel and releasing more combustible gases that in turn also ignite. And so the fire gets hotter. How cool, right!? 😄 Ironically, looking into to the science behind fire, it now seems even more miraculous than before! 😂 #BushcraftNerd .⠀ .⠀ #wimpycamping #firelighting ⠀ .⠀ #combustion #scienceoffire #bushcraftscience #bushcraftnerd #bushcraftusa #camping #wildcamping #firecraft #firelightingskills #frictionfire #outdoorskills #primitiveskills #outdoorliving #selfreliance #friluftsliv #flintandsteel #survivalskills #wildernessliving #wildernessskills #rewilding #woodlore #embers #firemaking #survivalist
