In every community there is work to be done. in every nation there are wounds to heal. in every heart there is power to do it.

Marianne Williamson


Hear me, four quarters of the world - a relative I am! Give me the strength to walk the soft earth, a relative to all that is! Give me the eyes to see and the strength to understand, that I may be like you. With your power only can I face the winds.

Black Elk, (1863-1950)


When we have inner peace, we can be at peace with those around us. When our community is in a state of peace, it can share that peace with neighboring communities.

The 14th Dalai Lama


Never doubt that a small, group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.

Margaret Mead

Community

Community of Machu Pichu

What do you think of when you hear the word "Community"?

Community is rooted in the Latin word communitas (cum, "with/together") + (munus, "gift").

What is community to you? Is it the local coffee shop or diner where you meet your friends? Is it the yoga studio or gym that you attend? What does the "gift" portion look like to you? Are you being gifted, are you gifting, or both?

As we live our busy lives we too often forget about gifting and sharing together beyond our immediate circles. Our community can no longer be seen as just our neighborhood, city, or even nation. We consume goods that are transported to us from all over the earth. We cannot afford to step over the trash on the trail or street and think someone else will pick it up. We can no longer sit back and wait for someone else to take care of it, whatever "it" is (remember A Story of Four People Everybody, Somebody, Anybody, and Nobody).

How can you apply this concept to your life and workplace?

"Be the change you want to see in the world." Mahatma Gandhi
