The Common Good podcast is a conversation about the significance of place, eliminating economic isolation and structures of belonging. This episode is the Abundant Community Conversation from August 2 where Amy Howton speaks with Meg Wheatley and Peter Block about the new edition of Meg’s book, Who Do We Choose to Be?
This event was produced in partnership with The Berkana Institute, Designed Learning, Abundant Community and Common Change. These conversations happen on Zoom and they always contain poetry, small groups and an exploration of a particular theme.
The recited poem: From the Elders of the Hopi Nation
To My Fellow Swimmers:
Here is a river flowing now very fast. It is so great and swift that there are
those who will be afraid, who will try to hold on to the shore. They are
being torn apart and will suffer greatly.
Know the river has its destination. The elders say we must let go of the
shore, push off into the middle of the river and keep our heads above water.
And I say see who is there with you and celebrate. At this time in history,
we are to take nothing personally, least of all ourselves. For the moment
that we do, our spiritual growth and journey comes to a halt.
The time of the lone wolf is over. Gather yourselves. Banish the word
struggle from your attitude and your vocabulary.
All that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in celebration.
For we are the ones we have been waiting for.
