On Cave Dwelling


Some interesting thoughts here.

A few months ago, I attended a party high in the mountains in Malibu, California, given at a cave occupied by the man who threw the party. I asked him why he lived there, and he said that it simplified his life. He wanted to write a book, but he didn’t want to waste writing time working at a 9-to-5 job just to pay rent.

He said that he also wanted to reclaim a prehistoric lifestyle, because it made him see the world differently. He felt that it really was not necessary to live with much money at all, for he had discovered that he needed very little to survive.

This man enjoyed the solitude and harmonious feel of cave-dwelling — a lifestyle connected to the rising and setting of the sun.

Many of my friends have spoken to me about their experiences of living in caves for a week or a month. They always speak of the profound connection it enables them to feel with the Earth and with the Universe.
