Over the months, this group has drifted from what I originally wanted to build. I regret that I didn't intervene earlier to inject some clear direction. I'd like to give it a shot now.
I'd like to make clear that I'm not looking to please or include everybody with this group. There are lots of alternatives, and it's easy to make new groups. What I specifically want is a community I resonate with. One I recognize as interested in joining in the kind of play/work I want to do.
I've recently objected to long posts. On reflection, I realize that the length issue is only secondary for me. Primary is the disconnection from what I care about.
So, I'm offering some new clarity for the community I'm inviting in the form of this group, which is now available at http://evolve.awakeningcompassion.com/discussion-group-description/
Some people have stopped participating in this group due to lack of interest in the last few months of exchanges. I hope those people will perk up if they are excited about this clarified purpose for this community. I expect that others will want something other than what I'm offering, and I wish them well in finding and creating communities that suit their inspirations and inclinations.
