You have to have sound footing for a leap of consciousness – or of faith. Each person’s “start-point” is when and where he / she – you / me – decides to start. That could be today, a year from today, or five years from today; it all depends on where you are right now. The important thing is to start. A place to begin: A circle dance – going around the room, sharing and talking, with lots of listening:
What is your art (skill, gift, love – that which you do unbidden, without
force)? What do you do really? Who are you really?
Have you ever tried to live that art? What happened?
Have you ever thought about only doing your art? If so, what stops you?
If you could start buying the goods you use from someone here, if they
were of better quality, and less expensive, would you?
If you could turn to people here for your entertainment – film, spoken
word, music, dance – would you? If not, what would stop you?
If you could plan a future where we could all live our wholeness, fully,
what would it look like? Don’t you deserve this? Do you want this for your
children – or for all children?
What if we started buying from each other, instead of corporations?
What if we devoted our time, attention and allegiance to building the
future we deserve, instead of to the job?
What if we went beyond talking about these things and started doing these
things? How would we start?
