    Yes, the hippie movement may have been absorbed into the western culture of fame, fashion and finance, but there are still a few people aspiring to emulate people like that generation, or the Beats. There was so hoped for simplicity of life. Whether the modern religion of must...

    Peace and love, it wasn't a bad dream.

    I wish we had more people who would dare to take up that dream now and drop out of this materialistic, militaristic, wealth worshipping society we have today. It true that they did not create a utopia, utopias don't exist, but we can get closer to that dream; we can become...

    I've always been a hippie,

    I guess. Ever since I was a younger child, I've loved nature, peace, singing, a more simple way of living and living honestly and kindly. I only ever really connect with people like me. I have a deep, spiritual connection with Mother Earth and I try to take care of her as much...

    Kind Of

    I'm not exactly a hippie. I'm not the flower power type of guy and I know that love is never free.  But I do love the ideals of the 60s.  That was probably the last generation that had any ideals that don't make me puke. From the 80's on we have been the "greed is good...

    I believe love is the answer.

    This earth, God, all of it. It's beauty. I was a 20 year old woman, am discovering myself, my beliefs, my lane, my calling. Finding what it is that sets me apart, it makes me who I am. Many of you call it being a Hippie, however I call it my life. :) I'm a big believer in vibes...

    I've always been drawn to simple things.

    I have dreams of living simplistically with just myself and music and love. I want to live with respect for the earth, animals, plants, and people around me.

    Since Birth

    I enjoy nature and I meditate a lot,

    and I do believe I am a hippie at heart because I believe all life is sacred. But I am a pretty negative person and have been trying to change that but then I realized I might as well except it instead of fight it. I have been told I am pretty mature for my age (13), and that's...

    I remember my mother loved being a hippie.

    She loved the movement as well with the music and the burning of her bras. My mother went braless then and even now. My mother is 69 years old now and still goes braless. I am a hippie at heart and love going braless as well.

    question. " What happens when we get older? Do we still keep these values?" Dear Echo: Our values do change overtime. As we grow older, a lot of us sell-out to the system and settle for that. Does this de-value what do when we're young and wilder? In a way, yeah. The past...

    Hippie That Missed The Boat

    I Was Born Just A Little Too Late To Be Part Of The Movement.

    I will have to try this again when I feel a little more articulate. But to start with, I think that Hippies were way more about being libertarian than the folks today who call themselves Libertarians (or as I call them "corporate dupes").  It seems that a lot of people in this...

    whether she or he is wearing enough clothes, let's practice cleanliness (not unnecessary high maintenance "bulldrama") and this time leave out the kind of free love that gets misconstrued as free f--ks. Go toot your own horn, mister. Show respect and live freeeeeeely. Amen.
