Now that we have met, what is our Work?
This morning I was contemplating on our small gathering this week.
Contemplating, I 'saw' a connection between our gathering now and the time/space frame of Jan 2006 - Seattle - Evolutionary Salon. I don't know exactly what it means, but our meeting now will feed gatherings in that time/space frame. We can take some time to look deeper into the question what this relation-connection could be.
Looking deeper into our meeting this week, it seems that we need to be open to what wants to emerge. I don't mean to start from scratch (again). There is a clear purpose as set by Tom and Duri one year ago. But there is a reason that the 5 of us (+???) meet now; the unique blending of our talents and competences can and will reveal new insights and new opportunities.
I borrowed the question: "Now that we have met, what is our Work?" form Toke Moeller, and I keep it always in the back of my mind. It is an opening to the evolutionary impulse that "need us, humans, to... ". Our being together can create a bigger, newer, innovative dynamic, where more collective intelligence and wisdom becomes possible.
Starting from the knowing - of Tom and Duri, and all of us - 'leaning into the not-knowing' with an open heart, an open mind and an open will. That's what I envision us to do.
