Being Community

Community
This month our GTYM team is focusing on "being community".  Wikipedia says "in biology, a community is a group of interacting living organisms sharing a populated environment". We are excited to play the game of living in this shared organism of life, recognizing that each being and experience is a part of and to some degree a reflection of who we are individually. For us this means recognizing every moment as an opportunity to contribute and be contributed to within the construct (the people, environment, situation, and internal experiences).   We are looking at how we can be of service to ourselves and our various communities simultaneously while communing with each other in each present moment and choosing to see it as a sacred opportunity to create the highest and most effective experience and results for all of life.  Specifically for our team, this can look like:
  1. Listening deeply to others and ourselves in each moment,
  2. Seeing the vitalness of every aspect of life being completely vital to the whole
  3. Holding the seat of love even when it is really uncomfortable and being willing to be called out on by others when we are not holding this seat well.
...What does being in community look like for you?  We'd love to hear from you!
