a tickle of words to create smiles

Transparency is a word that recently has been used more and more to describe openness, particularly when it comes to people, organizations and ideal governments. Transparency is being translucent/clear, open and honest with yourself and your intentions.  There is no hidden agenda to be found. Everything is clear and honest. All actions and words are genuine and sincere. There is no ambiguity. When people are transparent, then trust and love can develop. Through transparency, ideal communities can be created.

These transparent communities of people with clear missions and openness are the ones that will wonderfully produce positive changes in the world such as world peace, love and abundance with one specific mission at a time. These specific missions can take on many forms, such as, creating a community garden to fill the nutritional needs of the community, producing an exchange site where a community can trade goods among themselves they no longer need or want for things they can use, or creating learning centers where people can exchange ideas in their immediate community.

Eventually, these ideas, as they are met with success, will be used in other communities. Success in one community will fuel successes in other communities as long as the intentions of the communities stay transparent and pure. This, in turn, would lead to world-wide peace, love and abundance. There are so many possibilities where very little resources and/or monies need to be used. All these possibilities simply start with transparent intentions from an individual who then gain the trust of others with similar ideals. Consider transparency; what does it look like for you and your community?

Community (Feb. 17 Post)

Community is a term often thrown around these days to define so many things, but what does the term community truly convey especially to you? Geographically, most live in a community, which stems from the biological definition of community: a group of interacting organisms sharing an environment. In an educational setting you have learning communities, where groups of students are learning together. Sometimes you can have learning communities in work environments, where companies, institutions and organizations have programs in place where their employees can continue their education.  

A community may also refer to groups that share common values or interests; furthermore, these groups get together in a regular basis to interact for a common cause or to socialize or both. These are the types of community that can make the most powerful impact on our world either in a positive or negative way. It is best that we join together in a community to promote a positive change such as promoting recycling in our neighborhoods or feeding the hungry. One can be in multiple communities like a church, a social service club or organization, a book club, an art league and on-line social networks, such as Facebook or Twitter (or both).  

Using our positive influences in our communities we can sway our group to do great things. It is with positive intentions, common beliefs and shared resources that communities can do wonderful deeds to promote a more caring and loving world. With the birth and development of the internet, communities can span huge geographical areas reaching all over the globe. This is often called the GLOBAL COMMUNITY.

Virtual communities can greatly influence the dynamics of our world and have the potential to do many wonderful deeds to promote a more loving and caring world through  global awareness, intent and action. The world is indeed getting smaller in the way people can influence each other through all the communities we are involved. The question is, how involved are you? Consider the following, how involved would you like to be? The choice is entirely up to you. You can become part of the solution simply by showing up in your community.
