Oh hippy zippy , it is just terminology and the word hippy as you are already well aware paul is about the best middle ground word that can be used for people with "hippyish qualities".
I personally did not like quite a few of the original hippies that I met and certainly have no political goals or affilliations,however am happy to be labelled as a hippy as I know people are referring to my positive attitude and nature loving attributes.
However for the love of god or who or whatever lets not bring up the what constitutes being a hippy thing yet again !!
Can you imagine someone saying at a rugby match " where is my seat" and the steward saying "next to the hippy over there" and all he see's is a fairly well built guy in a rugby shirt shouting " you dirty cheating fucker" or something similar,hold on, what hippy !!!
You get what I am saying and that goes for most of us that used the site. There were not many with flaired trousers,long hair and headbands I am sure.
I am not saying re-use the hippy brand but it is not such a bad label,or like Harry said something maybe with alternative in it.
UKH did get attention though and stood out a bit. Every now and then I would have someone glance over my shoulder and see the name and say "wow cool name for a site" or something similar like "do you mind not watching porn here please" !!
Joking about that bit !!
Sometimes it is worth taking a step back to take two steps forward,or call it regrouping if you like.
I would say that the " alternative people,alternative lifestyles,environmental progress and self betterment "are still the areas to look into,and especially as they are things that you already something about.
This is not something that you have to do,you could quit after the memberships run out and no one would think bad of you. It needs to be something that you want to do and want to do for the right reasons.
I hope that your meditations clear some of the clutter and give you a bit of inspiration.
I too have done meditations in class and on my own and based on my own experiences would recommend a good long walk in a beautiful place over a sitting meditation.
The fresh air,exercise and solitude are often the best things to help the mind and heart work clearly and nature has never let me down yet.
Good luck and Bonne courage mon ami
