What is koha cooperation?
I am teaching koha cooperation at a wellness market that is held weekly in my local community.
Koha means to donate in the native language of my land, Aotearoa. So much of the suffering in our world has been created as systems that are not in alignment with nature's lore have dominated.
This has meant that many people and even countries suffer from poverty and have been cut off from direct connection with our mother planet, the true source of our nurture and care. The cutting off has been through systems of control that we may gather courage to undo, as we come together and relate as communities.
Koha cooperation is something I am building awareness of in my community and out from there. It is about how true abundance may really be generated, where everyone is fed, housed, loved and supported. The potential result mean that everyone may be happy and free, eventually after we make it through this transition period from the grass roots up.
For now, we may start by exchanging products and services of similar value with one another as humanly and mutually agreed upon. Eventually, I feel that we will all realise that we can just give of what we love to give. I only see this happening once the systems (e.g., money, tax, courts and big government systems) are no longer dominant and we all have direct access to live in harmony and balance with the earth.
We are in a time of transition. Many of us have or are letting go of the old control systems now and finding solutions that bless all of creation and contribute to the true abundance that comes when balance and harmony is restored upon our Mother planet, Pachamama.
I discovered in my old life, in a plight of homelessness and targeting that the system will not and cannot see the human being that has a heart that pumps red blood around their form. So then, why would the human being have to be co-opted into seeing or acknowledging the system and why would be give our focus or attention to something with an agenda to harm?
It has not only harmed people, but it has harmed all of creation, so lets refocus our attention to what can really bless all of creation NOW and live consciously, ethically and in integrity to the best of our ability.
I firmly believe that we may find our answers to any problem and that with our lives we may be the solution. We are the ones we are waiting for, as the Hopi prophesied. They knew a fair bit about what it means to live close to the Earth and honour all of creation. As we come together in the smallness of a community, we may relearn what it is to really love, share and care for one another.
Let's bless all creation with our lives, from the pure grassroots of natural lore. Let's allow a transition to take place that is life and planet saving. May it burgeon up and grow, so we may all share equality, love, support and cherish one another and our planet - and so it is.
