The Best Investment?

I'm reading Sacred Economics by Charles Eisenstein and he put clear words to two ideas that I have been blurrily thinking for a long time:

"Really the only security is to be found in community: the gratitude, connections, and support of the people around you. If you have wealth now, I recommend, as your investment advisor, that you use it to enrich the people around you in lasting ways."

"If we want to outlast the multiple crises unfolding today, let us not seek to survive them. That is the mind-set of separation; that is resistance, a clinging to a dying past. Instead, let us shift our perspective toward reunion and think in terms of what we can give. What can we each contribute to a more beautiful world? That is our only responsibility..."

Those 7 sentences give us a lot we could unpack, but for me, it makes me want to double down on community and giving. And I'm super happy to say that this past week the project got it's first member!

I don't know who it is. I don't recognize the email. I was quite shocked because the website is basically nothing. Is this a sign to keep going? This lovely internet stranger, soon to be friend. What gifts can I offer this person? What gifts will they offer me? What gifts will they offer the others who join?

That's what I want to find out. And how to grow it. This project is me learning what it takes to create an online+offline community that matches the new world I want to see. I don't know if it's possible. I'm 97% sure this is one big way I can contribute to a more beautiful world.

What about you, what do you want to contribute? Are you working on it? We need what you have in your heart. Please don't hold it back from us.

If you feel resistance to that, it's okay, that's your hurt parts speaking. The first resource on can help you with that: The Ego Integration Checklist.

There's just one catch, you have to be a member to get access to it. :D

Love, David

PS - I should mention that right now membership is free. It's a small gift. :)
