Footprints in the Windsm # 1004

I’m inviting people to a larger view of the world and their role in it.

Our view of the world is consumerist: we see our role as buying and consuming things so that others might also consume things. This is the highest and best use of humans in our secular belief system in the early 21st Century. What I am inviting people to is foreign to this belief system: instead of eating up our resources and grinding up people, let us see that we are better about giving ourselves to each other. Out not in. Giving not eating.

Our task is to meet each other and get to work: get to work repairing and making whole the world. At any time, we can only be part of what we might unfold, and yet we are not even the part we could be. So let’s invite people to dive in, to give their highest and best—their imaginations and blood—to the task of engaging each other in our world, to the task of engaging the best of each of us.

Please pass it on.
