This is the sixth Part of The Circle of Gratitude Story series. Be sure to check out the Whole overview and introduction here. Full archives at the bottom of the post.
The Circle of Gratitude is a platform for people to create gift relationships within a community of individuals desiring to support each other.
The Circle of Gratitude is a dream that has been evolving over the last while and one in which I desire to co-create with others. I presented the above sentence in the first post of the series, along with a breakdown of each key word related to the story. In these subsequent posts I will expand further upon each word with the intention of creating greater clarity within myself and others through story, rhyme, and colourful illustrations. Enjoy the adventure!
Part Six: Growing Community
Community of Individuals – The integration of our individual uniqueness and our common tribe. We all share our home and we each offer distinct and essential gifts. The community we individually create reflects our uniqueness and embodies our collectiveness. One big messy web of circles.
As more of the world’s beings began becoming,
The collective tribe welcomed the world forthcoming.
In the background its vibration was constantly humming,
Each and every one’s gifts were banging loud like drumming.
Recognizing their underlying unique and common heritage,
supplied the motive for the tribe to grow abridge.
Applying, in the right moment, the appropriate leverage,
an embodiment of wisdom in their shared heart-language.
Approaching all relations without expectation or attachment,
gave rise to the individual courage to face the environment.
Within the support of a unique community, collective enlightenment,
Each being was freed to give their gifts of magical wonderment.
Giving to one and receiving from another,
reconnecting the tribe to the love of the mother.
Finding trust in the support of each sister and brother,
spreading the creative gifts of the world, total smother.
I look forward to connecting with you if you see/hear/feel yourself in this story. Follow the breadcrumbs. Thank you for your support/shares/feedback/monitude along this journey. ::)
(P.S. I wrote of this story in the past some time ago – although the concept has evolved, feel free to explore the archives for more of the back-story about living in the gift and the Circle of Gratitude – The Circle of Gratitude: Seeding the Heart, The Circle of Gratitude, Uniting Work and Play Through the Gift: Part One and Part Two).
