Can I develop inner understandings that foster my contributions to the interdependence of the community that is present around me and Martin? Maybe interdependence can be better understood and more creatively contributed to by using various metaphors such as flow or conductance or big picture Synergy operating in all life both on impersonal and “In Person” levels. (The impersonal level being outside of awareness? )
Earlier on in our fire recovery I fretted about what reward are folks getting for helping us and feeling worried about not being able to repay all the help to individuals. I mentioned this worry to some folks and they assured me that they were finding their reward by helping. Helping made them feel good. Part of me still doesn’t understand. I just take is on faith that the individuals show up as they want to (and have time to). Trusting Synergy reduces my stress.
I do like planting extra plants to have seedlings or produce to share with the people who come to help. I see that me giving plants to individuals is the same as giving to “my community”. Also, when specific people come to help, they represent my community to me, as well as their own sweet/blessed selves.
Participating in community interdependence can be thought of as a group of people turning a wheel together. Together we can turn it faster and faster, causing the interchanges, exchanges, that fulfil needs and enrich experience to flow increasingly.
