raised in safety,
focused on the inner being,
nurturing the Self.
Now, the World demands a turn outward:
to save us all from angry fear,
to build new relations
for a new time.
Our Generation tho:
We trust Society to self correct,
and we withdraw ever more,
while outside, the world gets worse.
It gets worse.
Society is just a bigger Self,
so the work we have done on our own Self
informs our mutual work realizing
a New Agreement of the People,
a Society of Common Good.
We individual people, we link one to one,
we negotiate our needs and wants,
and thus begin to weave a web.
The web begins to grow
Connections are made and ripple outward.
On the Surface,
in the Now,
tendrils, nodes, and meshes emerge.
From the Ground
grows the New Agreement.
