What Happened When I Started Upgrading The Lifely Group Websites

Debra Redalia


 
The past six weeks has been such a metamorphosis, I want to tell you what happened. I truly feel like I have gone from being a caterpillar to a butterfly.

After working on this website for almost a year and a half, I got to a point where I started to feel ready to put my ideas out in the world. But I wasn’t happy with the way the websites looked. I wanted to make a better first impression. So I just started considering this and what I needed and wanted.

Then all of a sudden someone contacted me to record a podcast that would air in February. This really made me want to upgrade the site.

And then one of my readers wanted to give me a donation. So suddenly I had enough money to hire the professional graphic designer and photographer that I needed. I knew who I wanted for the graphic design and easily found the perfect photographer.

The entire process of upgrading the website visually and technically has gone perfectly smoothly.

This upgrade was also about organizing information and bringing more order to information. I found that as I brought more order to my work, suddenly I wanted to bring more order to my home. One day I just had to stop working on the website and spend the day going through our storage room, and Larry has been working more on our tiny house. Just suddenly we are creating anew in our personal lives as well as in our public life.

I am discovering that as I work on this project my ability to understand the workings of Life and my ability to communicate the subject continues to increase and increase. I realized that I can’t make a business plan and execute it because I’m not an industrial machine. This work is living and evolving—an unfolding manifestation of an intent that delights and surprises me. I’m learning that when I am moving in the right direction, the path keeps opening up before me as I take each step and choose the right forks.

I am feeling like I am creating more than a new website. Larry and I together are creating a new world—the world we want to live in. I am no longer living just to be myself or to be in a partnership with Larry. I am now living to create the world I live in as well. And it feels just as easy as redecorating my house.

For many years now I have viewed the industrial consumer world as an “overlay” on the Earth. That even though we live in the industrial world, there is another world of Nature beneath it. I have so shifted that I now live in Nature and visit the industrial world. I am experiencing Nature as real and eternal and true. We could remove the industrial world entirely and Nature would still be there, continuing to create and renew life.

I am emerging from this time of upgrading my websites as an upgraded person as well. Ready and able to bring humans back to Life.

Welcome to Lifely!

Quite simply, this blog is about orienting ourselves and our lives to Life, instead of orienting ourselves and our lives to industrial consumerism. Here we are sharing our own journey. You come too. Read more...

Debra & Larry Redalia
lifepartners + soulmates

For more than 30 years we have been delving into the nature and activities of life together. Indeed, this has been and continues to be the very reason we are together. With delight, we research, explore, observe, and even wake each other up in the middle of the night to discuss how life functions and how we can function as life—even while living in the modern world. We each are different from the norm, but we are different in the same way, so we have been able to think outside of the ordinary together and find the extraordinary workings of life.
