Keeping The Momentum
As new members to the group, my wife and I give a big hello to you all. After finally getting the itch we've had in our minds & spirits for years scratched by discovering the Zeitgeist movies and groups, we're at that place so many probably have experienced after discovering a life-changing concept - WHERE THE HECK IS EVERYBODY?
A movement as radical as ours (yay, ours!) carries inherent tendencies to become somewhat isolated. Who do you talk to about it? Its scary being a noob, bursting with wanting to talk about what should be so obvious to everyone, when everyone you know is still blinded. That's what makes these groups so absolutely necessary. If you can't talk here, more importantly, if you can't see people talking here, how in the world are you going to get the courage to begin opening your own mouth outside shouting 'finally I see it! what a load of crap! lets burn the money, and start building the RBE now!' in your living room? The whole point of a grass-roots movement is to communicate.
How come no one is using chat for daily informal dialogue? How come online meeting places aren't (as far as I've seen so far) being utilized? I see the group members listed, but I haven't met you yet. If we're all about building communities - and I hope we are - where is the online neighbor welcoming newcomers with a digital casserole? There is a great opportunity to effect immediate growth each time someone visits these sites. There is an equal opportunity to lose an untold wealth of talent if the reception isn't vibrant, and inviting.
Hopefully, I'm ranting without cause, and we just haven't been around long enough to begin to make new friends here. So this is me, Tyrone, and my wife Inola, together we're tynola96. We're extending our hands in friendship, and our hearts in solidarity - Earnestly wanting to take part in this movement that has changed our lives, and awakened our souls.
