What holds a community together?

What is community? I can see and perceive that all life is organized in a communitarian way. Community is a life principle. Community is something bigger and more comprehensive than the sum of its members. Every community is an organ embedded in the whole. Every community which wants to sustain itself needs to discover its common task and its role in the healing of the whole. Community is community with all beings, with plants, trees, elements, invisible beings. Seeing this, you will be guided.

This kind of embedment in the higher order of life will always help to solve the conflicts which will come up. Community cannot mean to only relate to one another. It needs a higher level of order. In the center of the universe there is a logic of universal love. This logic is conducting life. By turning towards this reality you will enter a deeper trust. You will discover that most communities are driven by fear and competition. The reconnection with a higher guiding power will lead you home.

In this sense discover that you are community, wherever you are. A true community is always guided by an open heart. Be aware of your surrounding, of nature, the people around you. Take responsibility. You will then know your next steps and tasks to be fulfilled in the frame of the planetary healing and transformational process. (…)
