What makes a community a community?

Is it the permaculture or the solar power, the adobe and straw-bale building or the magnet motor vehicle and singing, and or …… As important and wonderful as all that is and has to be, there is something else, something more. Isn’t there?

Consider science, so many advancements and discoveries, most of which are undisclosed, but what of the science of mankind, the science of the soul?

A community with an optimised harmony with nature needs an integral understanding with the nature of mankind, doesn’t it?

If a co-mmunion then a communion of human being….so what is the nature of man and his cosmology? Is this a real question for community? If lines of realisation were unfolded would that revelation enhance or even complete other aspects like the relationship with nature, through permaculture for example…..is this aspect a facet of a more integral permaculture by the organic distillation of man into organic culture?


Integral communication within the self / Self communicates then to others and unfolds communion.

If love is always the answer, then ‘how’ is love the answer?

It’s good to start with questions. It means there is awareness and willingness to understand. With so much conflict and stress in the world, why do so few people really sit still and try to find the solutions? I mean really ask themselves, or at least contemplate the validity of mediated solutions.

To sit still and ask ‘ how ‘ love is the answer is to use awareness and since love and awareness are two sides of the same coin, the answer should unfold with the clear and simple focus of this question.

If one can concentrate, or learn to meditate, then with a desire to understand the solution to the chaos in our present world, this question can unfold a spectrum of insight and rich field of understanding that can lead to loving actions which will gently untie the choking stress of modern life and the endemic conflict consciousness which has pervaded the world.

Every journey starts with one step. Why not start with contemplation of this simple question; if love is always the answer then ‘how’ is love the answer?
