Pink Heart Origins

We were anonymously forwarded this email from someone who says they worked for DPW.

“In 2009, while building the perimeter fence, DPW made a discovery.
They hit on a metal cylinder buried beneath the cracked Playa surface. It
was twice the size of a Oatmeal box, and covered in Sanskrit markings.
Originally it was assumed the capsule was buried by an ‘08 burners as a
joke, but the 09 fence was in a new location. No burner had been even close.
DPW is DPW does, so they smashed open the cylinder to see what was inside.
Wrapped in layers of silk, dried mint leaves, and cucumber seeds was a
single pink heart, carved in stone.

Pretty cool. But no one thought more of it, until the end of the summer
when Danger Ranger brought it to friend at UNLV. After tests and analysis
they were able to translate some of the text. (Most the markings were
badly damaged during the “opening procedure.”)
What they were never able to figure out, however, was the age of the
container.
One researcher was sure the alloy was at least 1000 years old.
The origin of the text may be unknown, but the wisdom is clear:

1. Thou shall accept all as thy brother.
2. Thou shall gift thy brother with joy.
3. Thou shall shed his consumerism
4. Thou shall be his own shepherd.
5. Thou shall speak thine truth.”
They were unable to translate the rest of the markings.

Many people believe that this was not the first canister like this found in
the Black Rock Desert.
Several BMORG employees swear that Larry Harvey, himself, is in possession
of a canister found during an playa visit in the early 90’s.
And if you study those 5 lines, they are eerily close to the first 5 Burning
Man principles!
Were the principals of Burning Man left here by an advanced culture? Or
Santa Claus?
It hardly matters.
What matters is that the principals exist.
And when implemented in someplace as magical as the Black Rock Desert –
miracles can happen.

***
The Pink Heart Presidio was created to protect these Playa Principles & spread
the Gospel of Gifting.
The Sacred Order of the Pink Heart embrace these Texts as powerful tools of
Love amplification.
We practice, inform and preserve these principles though ceremonial (and
often whimsical) offerings of SHADE, DRINK, VISION, & LOVE.”

And it was signed,
” P<3 aka Pink Heart
p.s. Ho, Ho, Ho."


Burning Man 2012 – Fertility 2.0 – My Virgin Burn (by Melissa Fontanini)

This was a note I wrote to my campmates after the Burn, but it applies to my experience overall:

I traveled to the desert shy and hesitant, but excited for what was to come. I’ve always been rather shy, quiet, an observer, self conscious, but eager to explore, learn new things, dive in with the right push to venture on my own, or outreached hand to travel beside. This was a huge step in becoming comfortable in my own skin, surrounded by soooo much love, so many directions to turn, endless possibilities.

TEDx! Gratitude, Gifting & Grandpa aka Crap or Cone


Cliff Baise “Pink Heart Camp is a Burning Man Beacon.”

Pink Heart Camp is a Burning Man Beacon. You can glance over from anywhere on the playa and see the gentle pink glow emanating from Pink Heart at 9:00 and Esplanade. The story behind the camp is even cooler. It is run byJohn Halcyon Styn. I could write an entire book on how awesome this guys is, but just Google him or look up some of his videos on YouTube and you’ll see for yourself. He has lots of videos that helped me prepare for Burning Man last year as a virgin, but he also has a show called Hug Nation that is a benefit on so many levels. Don’t miss John’s TEDx talk either. I wish there were more people like him.Image

Thank you email

“It was very early Tuesday morning when my girlfriend and I stumbled into your pink lounge. The sun was about to come up and there was a man on a trike playing a classical loop that was quite literally tickling the back of our spines. I’m not quite sure if the lounge was open persay but we stayed and cuddled anyways for around an hour. It was the best night cap this hopeless romantic could have ever asked for.

Out of 7 days of cacophony this simple, seemingly pointless story was my absolute favorite moment on the playa. Before this night/morning, I had never experienced that level of intimacy with someone. I don’t like to dwell on and live in the past but this is one memory I can’t shake and causes tears of joy to surface from my heart every time I contemplate it.
Thank you.”
