Community

& Other Writings

Our longing for community and purpose is so powerful that it can drive us to join groups, relationships, or systems of belief that, to our diminished or divided self, gives the false impression of belonging. But places of false belonging grant us conditional membership, requiring us to cut parts of ourselves off in order to fit in. While false belonging can be useful and instructive for a time, the soul becomes restless when it reaches a glass ceiling, a restriction that prevents us from advancing. We may shrink back from this limitation for a time, but as we grow into our truth, the invisible boundary closes in on us and our devotion to the groupmind weakens. Your rebellion is a sign of health. It is the way of nature to shatter and reconstitute. Anything or anyone who denies your impulse to grow must either be revolutionised or relinquished.

In the Face of What Is Happening

Something that may help, in the face of what is happening in this country and in the world, is to be willing to consider all of it in terms of what works and what doesn't work.

Not speaking does not work. Speaking in ways that increase delusion, misinformation, fear, reaction, anger and alienation also does not work...

Starting with Community

Real change begins with real people in a real place, here, and now. Human community cannot change in the ways it must now, if we are to survive, separate from the places separate from the places where we live...
