I am constantly surprised again and again by how we are capable of so much more than we originally thought.
I say this on a personal level, but more importantly I say this on a community level. We are community creatures and it’s only been in recent years that our segregation and our burning desire for forever more ‘independence’ that our concept and our powers of community have been diminished.
Just try to think what is community to you? What is that idea? Are you a part of a community? Do you feel like you’re in a tribe of people who work towards goals bigger than themselves? After starting a movement a few years ago I was quickly reminded how thirsty i’d been for the deeper sense of belonging and purpose being in a community provided.
We were no longer spectators in a world spiralling out of control, we were working together and contributing towards changing the future for the better as oppose to pointing our fingers at the newspapers, politicians and each other whilst letting it all slip away.
We were an inter-dependent team working towards the betterment of each other, the people and the planet. In here lies great-untapped potential.
