When there has been some kind of disaster, a car or ship wreck, a tornado or mudslide, a lost pet or lost friend, and many more such things that can count in disaster in our minds, though may not in others an instinct comes to the fore in our brains encouraging us or demanding that we come together and work as a community to do everything together from rescuing to healing one another. Acting together in concert may not be how many of us operate, but in whatever singular circumstances in which we find ourselves, we also find that there is not much effort involved in participating and that we don’t worry about what others’ opinions of us are. Nothing matters but to ‘make it better’ as quickly as possible. While working at vital, important work we don’t find ourselves worrying about what looks right wrong or what behavior would make us look the best to others, those thoughts all fly and we behave as we truly are or think we are striving to be. Perhaps we all need to be survivors, survivors of our own mind’s solitude and those who teach alone-ness. There’s a community out there, right?
