Earthly Meets the Divine: One World Consciousness and One Community

True Community

Building a global collaborative of Communities working together for The Highest Good of each other and all life on this planet has the potential to transform our world for everyone. “True Community” as defined on this page is a core value for One Community. It is also a foundation of Highest Good society and the self-replicating teacher/demonstration model we are open source sharing.

This page discusses True Community with the following sections:

WHAT IS TRUE COMMUNITY

True Community, how to build community, facilitating global community, community building, for The Highest Good of All, One Community, a new way to live, a new way of living, open source world, creating world change, One Community, 40+ tips for community making, One CommunityThe definition of Community One Community subscribes to is living for The Highest Good of All, a commitment to helping each other demonstrate unconditional love for one another, and supporting the constant growth and improvement of ourselves, each other, and our global environment. We call this “True Community” and capitalize “Community” throughout our site because this version of Community is a combination of all our values that combine to function as a celebration of human diversity and the profound healing, communication, and creation that comes from living in such an environment dedicated to this.

True, Genuine Community is the art and practice of being our most loving, open, and authentic selves while we honor others doing the same. This creates an environment that specifically caters to fulfillment of the six primary human needs and is foundational to the emotional aspect of sustainability for the complete human experience. Dr. M. Scott Peck did extensive research on the differences between traditional community and this idea of “True Community” in his book titled, “The Different Drum: Community Making and Peace.” This book is required reading for all One Community Pioneers and we support the foundational tenants of True Community outlined within it. Here they are in Peck’s own words:

  1. Inclusivity, commitment and consensus: Members accept and embrace each other, celebrating their individuality and transcending their differences. They commit themselves to the effort and the people involved. They make decisions and reconcile their differences through consensus.
  2. Realism: Members bring together multiple perspectives to better understand the whole context of the situation. Decisions are more well-rounded and humble, rather than one-sided and arrogant.
  3. Contemplation: Members examine themselves. They are individually and collectively self-aware of the world outside themselves, the world inside themselves, and the relationship between the two.
  4. A safe place: Members allow others to share their vulnerability, heal themselves, and express who they truly are.
  5. A laboratory for personal disarmament: Members experientially discover the rules for peacemaking and embrace its virtues. They feel and express compassion and respect for each other as fellow human beings.
  6. A group that can fight gracefully: Members resolve conflicts with wisdom and grace. They listen and understand, respect each others’ gifts, accept each others’ limitations, celebrate their differences, bind each others’ wounds, and commit to a struggle together rather than against each other.
  7. A group of all leaders: Members harness the “flow of leadership” to make decisions and set a course of action. It is the spirit of Community itself that leads and not any single individual.
  8. A spirit: The true spirit of Community is the spirit of peace, love, wisdom, and power. Members may view the source of this spirit as an outgrowth of the collective self or as the manifestation of a Higher Will.

  • USING COMMUNITY IN DECISION MAKING*

In decision making at One Community, the core value of “Community” is applied by asking ourselves the following three key questions:

  • How can this promote and help create True Community even more?
  • How can this be even more inclusive and considerate of all members of One Community?
  • How can this be even more inclusive and considerate of all members of our global Community?

* To ensure we are always aligned with our purpose, values, and mission, One Community uses the values as defined by our organization as the compass for all our decision making; we then factor in the diversity of individual perspectives and experiences. We highly recommend this approach because it saves us hundreds, if not thousands, of hours of collaborative decision making time. If you are considering our model as a template for your own creation, we especially recommend you apply this approach too and use, adapt, or completely change the values we’ve presented so you too can create a clear guidance system that aligns with your own organizational/group/individual needs.

 

WHY TRUE COMMUNITY

True Community, how to build community, facilitating global community, community building, for The Highest Good of All, One Community, a new way to live, a new way of living, open source world, creating world change, One Community, 40+ tips for community making, One CommunityOne Community feels True Community satisfies people’s foundational human needs better than anything else. We look at the world today and we see people who have achieved Community as truly happy people. We also see people who do not have Community seeking it wherever they can find it. Because of this, we see creating a path for people to experience, duplicate, and then evolve their own version of actually living in True Community as a foundation to our approach to Highest Good society, our Highest Good of All philosophy, and our world-change methodology. Open source and duplicable True Community that becomes self-replicating can, in our opinion, literally create a happier, more loving, and more peaceful planet for everyone.

Q: How are these ideals of True Community, thinking and creating for The Highest Good of All, unconditional love, and freedom for people to be themselves supported and practiced?

Primarily through very careful and detailed screening for people that already are accepting of other people’s individual choices, clearly identifying what it is that we are creating so like-minded people will join, and monthly 2-directional review and feedback sessions so we continue to grow together as a group.
