Liziqi is a chinese lady that strives for the best in this world by using mind and body to live one with nature. This I feel not only can enrich our own well being but that of our planet. In this video she demonstrates how easy it is to build furniture using bamboo.
Bamboo is an amazing plant. Not only is it one of the fastest growing plants in the world (some species grow three feet each day). It can used for building, flooring, cloths, or even as food. Bamboo absorbs carbon dioxide and releases 30% more oxygen into the atmosphere than hardwood trees. So by demanding bamboo you can help increase its demand.
I hope you enjoy watching Liziqi. She is on a completely different level...
Bamboo houses are only limited by the imagination...
My hope one day is to build a bicycle out of bamboo.

Living simple and hard working like this is the KEY to happiness.
Lack a sense of purpose?
Modern world not quite doing it for you?
You are not alone.
Imagine-All your work efforts go to your family.
All your energy-
Working for you and your family,not some corporation or government.
Guess what-Humans lived like that for hundreds of thousands of years.
To be free is not easy in todays world.

But nothing worth fighting for is ever free.
There is always a cost.

I live in a bamboo patch in Texas that covers about 3 or 4 acres.
An isolated jungle right in the middle of the city.
I am very careful to keep my spot secret.
