This blog is dedicated to shifting the social paradigm from one that understands wealth as the accumulation of control and resources to one that sees wealth as the ability to contribute things of nourishing value in the context of the the whole community of life. It does so using the premise that nature is a language that communicates our opportunity. – For instance; biology “says” that when collections of entities (such as organs) assemble in community – each contributing nourishing value in the context of the community while receiving nourishment from that community, that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts – that this “community principle” is the source of all sustainable wealth and the only way we can realize our full potential.
There is no proverbial bottle of snake oil here that promises “three easy steps to a satisfied life” This is written with an understanding that the truth about the behavioral realities that shape our experience of life can be extremely difficult to understand and even more difficult to develop the disciplines that translate greater self-awareness into an effective and nourishing influence on life.
While it is recognized that we are not in control of every circumstance, it is also understood that we have opportunities that are within our reach that we do not currently take advantage of. This blog is intended to encourage that we close this opportunity gap in order to move in the direction of strengthening the entire body of life in which we live and on which we depend for life.
Any credit for improved circumstances as a result of adopting these ideas belongs to those who demonstrate the courage and commitment to act on them.
