The Liberated Life Project Switchboard — Now Open!
I don’t have a wise quote for the top of this post, nor do I even have a post.
Instead, today I am devoting this space to all of you.
More and more I am starting to ‘get’ the feeling of tribe here among all of us. The in-person “Liberation Lounge” that I held a couple of weeks ago in Southern California really brought that home to me (I wrote about that in last week’s post).
Strangely enough, the day before that lounge, I was walking around Pasadena and had this idea:
What if there were faith- or church-based worker collectives
of people who provided elder care?
It seemed like a brilliant idea to me. There’s definitely a need — many baby boomers like me have aging parents and we aren’t able to be right in their towns to make sure things are okay all the time. But I’m not so crazy about paying a lot of money to an agency, who then gives a much smaller amount to someone I don’t know to do this work.
So wouldn’t it be great if, in my case, I could turn to a group of folks in the Buddhist community who had a passion for providing service and good company to those who are aging, and if they received fair compensation for their hard work?
This got me thinking… I bet many of you who read the Liberated Life Project have your own brilliant ideas.
And maybe you would like a forum to share these ideas, a way to network with others who share your vision, or who might have resources to help make it manifest. There are nearly 600 of you who receive these posts in your in-box weekly… and you share many of the same values. We are a powerful force!
So let’s give this a try. What’s your world-changing idea?
Use the comment section below if you have a great idea that you want to share with others and invite assistance in bringing to fruition. This might be assistance of any kind — financial, outreach, time, knowledge, or simply moral support and cheerleading.
The more specific you can be, the more we’ll know how we can help you — so don’t be shy about this.
I am happy to play idea matchmaker here in any way that I can. If someone has something really good brewing and you need a little help to, say, set up an Indiegogo campaign to fund your idea, let me know and I’ll see what I can do.
And it’s also fine to use this space for other kinds of requests as well —
- If you’re going through some health challenges right now, let us know and we’ll offer up some good intentions and energy for you;
- Or maybe you just published an e-book or put up your new website and want to share the news;
- Celebrations are great too.
This switchboard can handle all kinds of stuff!
I’m looking forward to seeing what you’ll contribute here! Dive in…
