Let's create a community of awakened individuals.
    #3520589 - 12/19/04 03:39 PM (11 years, 11 months ago)

How can we best create a localized community of a revolutionary design? We must not base it on a constitution, a set of written laws. We must not specifically define what it should be or become. So as not to be held up in semantics, we must necessarily not employ their use. But how, then, can we come together as a community? What can focus our attention towards a common goal?

Fortunately, such an axis around which we may all revolve exists naturally. Religions have sprouted up all over the world independently, yet with certain ideas always in common. This commonality is proof that a fundamental truth can serve as a unifying agent. Let us assure that ours is equally fundamental in nature, for if it is conventional then it will suffer from conventional shortcomings.

The Buddha, instead of defining what enlightenment is, defined what it is not. Just as enlightenment is freedom from suffering, our community should be freedom from the rigidity and blindness of society. Let us not define it any more than this, particularly not while in the initial phase of establishing a member base. Rather, let us come together with other people who seek freedom from the suffering society imposes. We would be wise, for the time being, to not define precisely how to go about attaining this freedom.

I propose the creation of a mailing list through which people like us, who seek freedom from suffering, may communicate. This means of communication must remain totally independent of any views promoting a particular plan of action. We must not alienate potential members by establishing tentative rules which are only that?tentative.

We must appoint a person or group of people to create and maintain a member list. We must create an internet site as a reference point, expressing these views of complete neutrality and objectivity insofar as any future plan of action is concerned. Because not everyone is willing to take the trouble of joining a site, I submit that a compilation of e-mail addresses would be the best primary means by which to keep track of like-minded people.

This has to be done in an orderly fashion or it won't get done at all. What does everybody think? Are there any volunteers to help compile a member list? I offer my assistance in this regard. We need to:

1. create some kind of official member list.
2. create a means by which members can communicate among one another. (an independent internet site/forum? yahoo groups? etc.)
3. promote this idea in other communities beyond the Shroomery's, remaining mindful of its neutral and objective nature for the time being

Discuss.

This is the place you speak of, if needed email adresses just make a post and ask and see who responds. As for getting AIM, MSN and other accounts do a PM or just post a thread again trying to recieve them from everybody.

But I'm a bit weary about doing so because you never know who some of these new shroomerites actually are.

Be safe and post wisely,
Droz

We're already here. No reason to relocate for the sake of relocating.
