Awhile back I watched a video from Elizabeth Gilbert, where she talked about vocation, which comes from the latin -- to be called.

I know my vocation on this Earth is to create spaces for people to feel welcome, be present, and bring all of who they are.

This vocation has shown up in different ways throughout my life.

I'm excited to host an event tonight in the East Village -- a calm, quiet, sober, thoughtful event for queer introverts.

The quote above is from Peter Block, who wrote "Community: The Structure of Belonging". Out of all the texts I've read about community, this one resonated most deeply.

Block talks about how "The future is created one room at a time, one gathering at a time." It's so true. When we show up for each other, we can create a world that otherwise would not be.

May we trade in isolation for interdependence; rugged individualism for belonging. Our meeting face to face can heal the wounds of the world.

It’s a cool and overcast day (finally)! So we are over here doing art, baking cookies and of course, reading 📖 I was invited a few weeks ago to join a cohort group in my field that reads, writes papers and meets once a year to discuss. Obviously I said yes, because that is right up my nerdy ally🤓 Papers are due in mid-September so I’m starting Peter Blocks Community: The Structures of Belonging. I usually read non-fiction slower than fiction because I take notes and I take days off here and there to process what I’ve read.

“The key to creating or transforming community, then, is to see the power in the small but important elements of being with others. The shift we seek needs to be embodied in each invitation we make, each relationship we encounter, and each meeting we attend. For at the most operational and practical level, after all the thinking about policy, strategy, mission, and milestones, it gets down to this: How are we going to be when we gather together?”
.
“We are a community of possibilities, not a community of problems. Community exists for the sake of belonging and takes its identity from the gifts, generosity, and accountability of its citizens. It is not defined by its fears, its isolation, or its penchant for retribution. We currently have all the capacity, expertise, programs, leaders, regulations, and wealth required to end unnecessary suffering and create an alternative future.”

My first conference with @ieaenneagram was a terrific experience!  I made meaningful new connections, spent time with dear friends, and enjoyed every topic I attended.
——
Here are five gems I heard from #peterblock during the keynote address:
——
1) The shadow side of every individual is a gift, not a problem to be solved.
——
2) Healing occurs when you re-remember the past in a different way.
——
3) Learning environments where people sit in rows facing a speaker on stage are an embodiment of the patriarchy.
——
4) Getting someone to do something is a form of colonialism.
——
5) In a quick-fix culture, Enneagram practitioners are taking a revolutionary stand for lasting transformation that takes time.
——
I will share more treasures from the conference throughout the week!

本日の映画は、「ギャロウズ・ヒル」です🧟‍♀️ 『まず、家主の言う事は信じましょう。』 なんだかなぁ。

自分たちの不注意のせいで立往生して、人の家に無理やり上がり込んでさ~。 そりゃ、痛い目にも遭いますよね~。 ってなるので、あまり感情移入できず。

憑依系で、ルールがあるのはよかったけど... そんなに残酷でもないし、絵になるシーンは少なめ。

ただ、巨乳の姉ちゃんが襲うシーンはエロくてよかったかもしれません!

あとは普通でした。

クオリティは悪くなかったですけどね~。 詳細はブログへ!http://ameblo.jp/chiboo-johnny/#映画 #映画好きな人と繋がりたい #映画鑑賞  #movie #review #イラスト#illustration #handwriting #シネマ #cinema #fanart #手書きツイート #ギャロウズヒル #洋画 #ホラー映画 #horrormovies #魔女 #witch #gallowshill #peterblock #peterfacinelli

The first time I heard the phrase "the answer to how is yes" was from Dr. Wayne Dyer. It turns out that it's the name of a book by a man named Peter Block. It's a phrase that's been on my mind a lot lately. 🤔 One can decide yes I want to do X, but the how on earth am I going to do X can be complicated, right? 💰💸🤷‍♂️ Block suggests that we use the question "how?" as a way to stay safe and keep ourselves from venturing into uncharted territory. 🗺️🚀 So what do you think? Is the answer to how being yes just philosophical mumbo jumbo or is there some wisdom in that that I need to figure out? I'm still stuck in what the yes is to what I think is a legitimate how? Am I making any sense? 😬

This book is helping me find a balance between having confidence in my capacity to live a life of purpose and being practical. I’m making some notes because it’s just that good!
-
-
Here is my take on "calling" and "commitment":
-
-
There are examples of people choosing work because they enjoy it, and not necessarily working for material rewards. A technical term is "the artist's way". It's somewhat of a "religious" path.
-
-
Although a shift is occurring, in the traditional eyes of "business", anyone who follows their calling is considered a fool - somewhat irresponsible with a negative connotation that they lack "loyalty".
-
-
As one of those fools🙈✋, I'd like to make an argument that idealists are actually more loyal than those who choose the traditional path. I might not be loyal to an institution but I am fiercely loyal to my own values and my own idealism.
-
-
You may ask why in the world would someone dedicate themselves to the success of an organization or institution if they're not being rewarded for it? My response is that your traditional metric is flawed and that 'virtue' is its own reward.

Happy Sunday!

I started this book last night and was binging on it all day.
-
-
I desire to create a world that will solve for others what I have struggled with so much myself. I would not fight so much for others sense of power if I had never felt so constrained. -
-
The quality of feeling alive comes when we act on our values and bring our own model for a better organization into the world. This is what makes work meaningful.
-
-
One of my character flaws is that I am a dreamer. Most have said that I am not realistic and I’m out of touch with the harsh reality of life. That I view life from a very lofty perch forgetting what it’s like to be in the trenches. All of which is true...
-
-
This book is for my fellow idealists - those of us who turn away from practicality in search for meaning...which is often dissolved in a world of measurement and instant results.

Block, Peter, Walter Brueggemann, and John McKnight. An Other Kingdom: Departing the Consumer Culture. Hoboken: Wiley, 2016.

In the high-tech world, speed is God and time is the devil. Speed becomes a value in itself, a measure of success, winning, and sophistication. Having time is always anti-system. The market engine does everything it can to overcome the time it takes for nature to make something grow: There is today such a thing as the twelve-day tomato.

Block, Peter, Walter Brueggemann, and John McKnight. An Other Kingdom: Departing the Consumer Culture. Hoboken: Wiley, 2016.

Those at the bottom and at the margin are considered underserving; they are today's equivalent of scripture's widows, orphans, and immigrants. They are considered underserving because from a distance they seem "unproductive." This is what the free market consumer ideology system can't tolerate. We blame them for not producing. We say they don't contribute. There is no awareness of how hard it is to have little. This is the unforgiveable sin of the market ideology.

THE CORPORATIZATION OF SCHOOLS
Our schools are one place where the strength of the empire is especially clear.
Universities are increasingly marketplace-driven. They are revising their curricula away from the humanities and promoting programs dictated by industry that off-load the cost of education onto the public...They don't want people to have to take courses that aren't immediately useful to them. The humanities now have to justify their contribution to the economy, instead of to the quality of citizenship of the student.

It's a Commandment in Deuteronomy 15 that says every seven years people have to be released from debt...the rest of the law says that poor people have to be released from debt...The class warfare discussion - the discussion of "Why don't the poor work harder?" - is a mild collision between our free market narrative and the Torah. The consumer culture has marginalized the widows, orphans, and immigrants. What stands out every time you teach about the cancellation of debts for poor people, someone raises a hand and says, "There is no evidence that they really did that." That's the only text in the Bible that holds an imperial danger: the text that speaks about subordinating the economy to the common good.

Quote from read - Mar 2018
Block, Peter, Walter Brueggemann, and John McKnight. An Other Kingdom: Departing the Consumer Culture. Hoboken: Wiley, 2016.

Theologically, the underclass is against God's will. It also makes society unworkable for the vast majority. One manifestation of that un-workability is violence. The prophets, particularly Amos and Jeremiah, talk about the violence that is perpetrated against the vulnerable. It's a class war conducted from above. Class war is always conducted from above, but it's the people from above who immediately cry war if you point out any social differentiations.

Another photo of the Peter Block house featuring Romabio Classico Limewash, that was a centerpiece last year in Southern Living Magazine. We love the angle of this photo. (Classico Limewash now available in-store or online at @homedepot )

Good Morning My Fierce Fabulous Family  Friends & fans its Simply Saturday!  Here's Today's quote What is the point in doing something with mediocrity? The only way you should do something is with a 100% effort and aim for excellence. Trying to get something done as quickly as possible or with the smallest amount of effort will only lead to subpar results.

“What makes community building so complex is that it occurs in an infinite number of small steps, sometimes in quiet moments that we notice out of the corner of our eye. It calls for us to treat as important many things that we thought were incidental. An afterthought becomes the point; a comment made in passing defines who we are more than all that came before. If the artist is one who captures the nuance of experience, then this is whom each of us must become.” #peterblock

Seriously! Why even put in the effort for something mediocre? Make all your efforts towards something great.

"The answer to 'How?' is 'Yes!'" - #book by #PeterBlock

Do you really want to do the thing?  Really?  Then do it.  No one else can do it like you can, and if it needs doing, there may be no one else to do it.  It is up to you.  If you don't know how, do it and learn by doing.  Make mistakes, learn from them, grow.  Keep going. "It's Mortal Kombat remember?  We decide." #justdoit
