A Better Way to Live – One Community Weekly Progress Update #193

A Better Way to Live - One Community Weekly Progress Update #193

A better way to live that is also good for each other and our planet is necessary if we are to realistically expect large-scale participation in creating a cooperative and sustainable society. Combining the physical components of sustainability (foodenergyhousing) with the emotional components of sustainability (education, Highest Good economic design, social architecture, fulfilled livingglobal stewardship practices, etc.) is one way to provide this. One Community calls this living and creating for The Highest Good of All and we think it has the potential to positively and permanently change the world for everyone.

Creating a Planet that Works for Everyone – One Community Weekly Progress Update #192

Creating a Planet that Works for Everyone - One Community Weekly Progress Update #192

Creating a planet that works for everyone is possible if enough people want it. We can change how we interact with each other and our shared environment if we choose to. One way to achieve sufficient engagement and participation is to create an open source and free-shared model that demonstrates this on a small-scale while providing a better way of living than how most people are living now. Such a model, if demonstrated as easy enough and affordable enough, will predictably spread and expand on its own. We are designing this as what we call living and creating for The Highest Good of All.
