Source of Inspiration

As I move to community living,
I find myself apprehensive for I
have fiercely guarded my independence
for a lifetime. Will I lose this freedom,
need to conform, feel imposed upon?
Will I be a “good” member of the
community and how will that manifest?
Will we be able to work together
in a loving way, resolving differences
with honesty, justice and compassion?

Important questions, yet somehow I know
that each community is but a microcosm
of the world. How can we talk about Oneness
and not be able to live peacefully in our
own community? Communities give us an
opportunity to experience on a smaller
scale our vision for a world of peace
and harmony. I have come to learn that
this world must begin in the hearts of
each of us. Individually we must be what
we wish the world to become.
