Community building requires community healing. And what does that look like?

"Staying ‘home’ and not venturing out from our own group comes from woundedness, and stagnates our growth. To bridge means loosening our borders, not closing off to others….To bridge is to attempt community, and for that we must risk being open to personal, political, and spiritual intimacy, to risk being wounded."- Gloria Anzaldua

"Quedarse en la casa'' y no aventurarse fuera de nuestro propio grupo viene donde estamos heridos y proviene nuestro crecimiento. Para hacer puentes signifa que abriemos mas de nuestras fronteras y que no cierremos a otros… Para hacer puentes es intentar comunidad, y para eso tenemos que corre el riesgo de ser abierto a personal, político y espiritual intimidad, a correr el riesgo de ser heridos. "
Gloria Anzaldua

Everybody is waiting for the movement to happen ! And we dont realize we are the movement. Its me and you coming together and having some honest and maybe painful truthtelling between us. But there is probably some beautiful thing we will create together as a result. I want to speak to each person in my community.Let's get the party going.

Todo el mundo está esperando a que el movimiento a ocurrir! Y nosotros no darse cuenta de que somos el movimiento. Comienza la communidad cuando usted y yo tienemos algunos conversaciones doloroso pero verdarosos . Pero es probable que algunos bellos cosas que es probablemente vamos a crear juntos . Quiero hablar con cada person en mi communidad.Vamos a comienzar esta fiesta !

Stevie Wonder - Overjoyed

Ah Stevie Wonder...I thought this song would make me cry. I hadnt heard it in a long time. I used to listen to this in my early twenties and think of the person I longed to meet that I would finally call HOME. And how in love I would be and was already in love with long before we had met. There are some connections we have with another soul like that. In such moments if we are lucky to meet them in our lifetime, we connect in the 4th dimension where time and space are irrelevant unimportant ..time and space seem to stop linger slow and is in a ever present NOW.
If such a connection should change form or energy what should remain is a love that is deeper but is not about possession or ownership but more about freedom.
Now there are friends and then there are companeras.Companeras or Companions on the good red road as my teacher would say. And so today I find myself more in love and overjoyed .....
