A while ago, someone commented on my blog, mentioning a guy named Suelo. Suelo’s been living without money for the past 10 years, relying solely on gift economy practices. He believes this type of living truly exemplifies what Jesus was talking about when he preached about the “kingdom of heaven”.
He’s got a website that explains his beliefs. In addition to his own articles, the site contains a massive amount of supporting scriptures references – from Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, Sikhism, Taoism, and Mormonism – that support this way of life.
He also has a blog which chronicles his adventures in moneyless living.
He and a group of like-minded folks have started a nomadic group called “The Moneyless Tribe” and are basically traveling around the country like a band of sadhus, volunteering where they can, sleeping where they can, and eating only what food they can find or is offered freely.
It sounds crazy.
I may try to find them.
