Awesome Indeed! -- "be-the-change-action" -- I love it :-).
Thank you hermano Pancho for writing this beautiful piece and Wed community for sharing the reflections.
As serendipity has it, earlier this week, before I read Pancho's "be-the-change" action suggestion from this week's iJourney passage, I found myself talking to one of our neighbor who's going through a challenging time with job loss and being at the verge of loosing the house they currently live in. He needed some help, since I volunteer as one of the board-of- directors of our community non-profit association, I had some important information that I could share with him from the experiences and stories of many other neighbors who were going through or had gone through similar situation already. I am really happy that I could share some tidbits that this neighbor was really needed at this time. As we chatted for a long time, we were engaged in smiles, laughter, humor, compassionate listening, helping each other with many more random things about life in our community.
I am thankful that these neighborhood conversations have become a regular happening, either at our lovely Hayward Farmer's Mmarket, Our Community Garden or the Community Yoga we have it in our sweet home space every Mondays or as part of neighborhood watch walks. Hope these deeper conversations go on-and-on like this forever, this is the needed to live in a truly healthy community.
