This is your Ka, coming to you from Thailand again… I’m excited to be back here with you and to answer a question we keep getting via Facebook and that is in regards to our life in Costa Rica and the beautiful house we lived in for nearly a year… what happened to all of that?
Our home is in Costa Rica
So, there’s a short answer and a long answer – the short answer is that our home is in Costa Rica, period – and that’s pretty straightforward to understand. And the longer answer is that we have plans to buy land and build a house and healing center – this is our long-term plan, and we want to do this in Costa Rica. So Costa Rica is definitely our home, coz we certainly don’t have anywhere else to call home!
But at the same time, all we have there right now are a few boxes in a garage – so we can’t really call that home either! But… we’re FREE! And sometimes people look at me when I tell them I don’t have a home and they feel sorry for me… they don’t understand that it’s by choice! We don’t need a home right now – so we just rent a house or rent accommodation in a resort and we make a home as we need one and if we like a place then we stay there.
It’s a hard thing for people with homes to understand as they believe homes bring stability and happiness – and they don’t understand that it’s our choice not to have a house, not to have a car, not to have any furniture. That’s very hard to understand for someone who hasn’t experienced that – especially as we have so many kids – but that’s our life, what can I say?? I could lie to you and tell you, “Yes, we have a home”, but I’m always about honesty and that’s just how it is right now.
Best thing for my family
So at the moment we’re traveling in Thailand, then we’ll go to the US and get some Whole Foods excitement for the family – and then back to Costa Rica at some point in time. People always ask us “Where are you going next?” And my answer’s always the same – I have no idea! I don’t know where I’ll be in 3 weeks’ time, not even in 2 weeks’ time! Then they get a sorry look in their eye – they feel sorry for us – my response makes them uncomfortable! And I say to them “Man, this is our choice! This is freedom! This is the best thing for my family!
My kids tell me “Daddy, it’s time to move on to the next place” or “Let’s stick around a bit longer”. Wow, to have that freedom and not to weigh my kids down with my plans – but just for them to be in touch with life, with each moment, with inspiration, with expansion, with possibilities that pop up each day – and to be so free that we can just follow them… That to me is the biggest freedom in life – and it’s the freedom we live every day and the freedom we will continue to live a little longer before we buy our first place in Costa Rica.
My kids’ travel plans!
But even then you won’t see us staying in the same place for the next 20 years – we will continue to travel for as long as the kids want to – they are the driving force behind our lifestyle and as long as they want to see new places we’ll keep moving… They want to go to Africa to see zebras and elephants, they want to go to Egypt to see the pyramids, they want to go to Australia to visit the Aborigines, they want to see the Mayan temples in Mexico, the castles in Germany and Europe, the old Roman empire in Italy… They want to do all those things, they are so interested in them… and we have the possibility and freedom to do them – so we just do it!!
And I’m interested in how our way of life fits with your belief system? Is it OK? Should it be illegal?! Should we be able to travel so freely and not have a home? I always love reading your comments and interacting with you – so look forward to hearing from you below!
OK, chat soon, bye for now!
