Auroville: In This City People Live Without Politics, Religion, Or Money -- Moneyless Society


(Organic And Healthy What do you think the biggest issues the world faces today are? Most people would say matters of bias and privilege, right? Well what if you could go somewhere where those weren't problems?

The truth is, you can. This utopia has existed for 50 years, even; it's called Auroville, and is located in Southern India.

The brainchild of Mirra Alfassa, Auroville is a universally welcoming place, regardless of nationality, culture, religion, or language.

Instead, it celebrates what we all are: Citizens of earth.

Alfassa created a charter by which the city runs, and no nation can claim property of the place. Instead, it belongs to the world.

There is no authority, legal or political, nor a person of power, that the inhabitants need to respect. There are no written laws either.

Instead, there is only one supreme universal truth by which the city runs; citizens work toward harmony, love, and acceptance, and prioritize education and research.

As a result, the functioning of the town is organized in a very modern and environmentally friendly way. They have implemented systems of wastewater treatment, as well as systems of ground water depletion.

Auroville uses eco-friendly methods for production of organic food, as well as technologically advanced methods for making the poor soil fertile. With the time, the town has become self-sufficient when it comes to food production and drinking water.

Starting from the seventies, they have started a process of forestation, and today the city is settled within a belt of forests and fields, making it one of the cleanest places on earth.

Even crazier, Aurovillians use no money – they have a whole economy functioning on principles of sharing, giving, and exchanging.



There is a distribution center in the city where both citizens and strangers can get a meal, but mainly, people produce what they need and exchange items with neighbors, without any aspirations of earning from the barter economy.

As a result of the cosmopolitan spirit embedded in the city, today it is inhabited with representatives from more than 50 nations.

It is protected under the authority of UNESCO, which in a way secures its future existence. The town has no restrictions – everyone is welcomed to come and to find his own peace.

Question -- What is the goal of this website? Why do we share different sources of information that sometimes conflicts or might even be considered disinformation? 
Answer -- The primary goal of Stillness in the Storm is to help all people become better truth-seekers in a real-time boots-on-the-ground fashion. This is for the purpose of learning to think critically, discovering the truth from within—not just believing things blindly because it came from an "authority" or credible source. Instead of telling you what the truth is, we share information from many sources so that you can discern it for yourself. We focus on teaching you the tools to become your own authority on the truth, gaining self-mastery, sovereignty, and freedom in the process. We want each of you to become your own leaders and masters of personal discernment, and as such, all information should be vetted, analyzed and discerned at a personal level. We also encourage you to discuss your thoughts in the comments section of this site to engage in a group discernment process.
