Geographic areas with healthy longevity patterns are shown to consist of communities made up of strong active relationships. A problem with our results driven modern western culture is a fragmentation of community. People are sensing this loss as they stare at their empty life filled with dusty trophies and old pay stubs. Consider an alternative, which has served humankind well through the ages.
Rekindle relationships and spend time at the village campfire.
Share life experiences with family and friends who:
Rock and carry us – when we are born
Pick us up – as we learn to walk
Reprimand us – when we cross healthy boundaries
Restrain us – when our arrogance doesn’t support maturation
Celebrate – our little life victories and family extensions
Give Support – when we are lives become shaky
Pick us up again – when we revisit the falling
Carry us in community to our final resting place.
I’ll be at the fire
