Kufunda

Some of the most beautiful social transformations happen in community. Here is an example:

When I think about what the world might look like in 500 or 1,000 years these are the types of images I see. Despite the pessimistic imaginings of the authors of Cloud Atlas or Terminator series, it’s more likely (at least to me) that the nation-state will fall away in it’s self-consuming desire for more and more, and those people left will be the ones practicing the best of what the ancients taught us and the best of what the modern world provides. Perhaps something closer to what Starhawk described as the future San Fransisco.

But regardless of what the world might look like, or who folks transform their lives now to live a little closer to that ideal, shifts like this always begin with a simple shift in our internal environment. And that’s the lesson that places like Kufunda hold for us.
