Seasons change, and with the seasons, activities, smells, ideas, feelings. Acknowledging, and honoring, these cycles and transitions enables opportunities for reflection, gratitude and re-orientation.

We are all part of the same cycles of the universe, while at the same time having our own, entirely unique set of cycles that are a product of our unique circumstances. Connecting to these cycles requires deep listening and faith.

As chief-editor, and co-author of all of the posts published in this series thus far, I (dan) have been able to notice my personal cycles more closely. Certain times, I have infinite energy to write posts. Other time, no energy or interest at all.

When I try to force myself to write, when I am not interested, it rarely works. I end up spending a lot of time, and creating something that ends up being changed and drastically edited. On the contrary, when I am able to write in those moments of inspiration, the writing happens naturally, with little effort, and I am able to write a lot of good content, in a short period of time.

Gradually, I am learning to pay attention to and honor these cycles.

Thank you to everyone that has been a part of this series, in any capacity.

Announcement

This Thursday, 04 February, we will be holding our opening gathering of the ‘Re-Imagining Cafe’. We hope for this to become a space where people that are Re-Imagining with us, through this series, can meet more intimately with the intention of becoming more deeply connected to the ideas and people, organizations and networks that are being shared through this series.

If you are interested in joining, please send an email to me (Dan) at danrudolph108@gmail.com and I will share a link to the call.

Recap

As of today we have released 56 Re-Imaginations. As long as we have posts to release, and people that are interested in showing-up&sharing, we will continue building on this collection and inching closer towards putting together a diverse, and comprehensive, Systems View for a more compassionate and connecting future.

Invitations

Invitations are open to anybody in the community. If you feel called to any of these invitations please send a message and we can explore possibilities.

Open Invitations for:

lead authors — to choose a specific area that you want to Re-Imagine, then to open the post with 3–4 paragraphs sharing your vision for that specific topic to be shared with the anchor author to read, absorb and then respond with another 3–4 paragraphs.

illustrators/painters/artists/dancers/sculptors/actors/clowns etc. — to re-interpret a post (and/or lead a new post) in a different medium(s) to honor multiple intelligences, make the information more accessible to a wider audience and give people a chance to creatively work with the ideas and information with their unique intelligences.

expanded leads & double anchors — to extend the pre-exisiting conversations. Anybody who has contributed a post already to the series can be an expanded lead. Simply, they would respond to the anchor author in the post that they have already submitted with another 3–4 paragraphs, and then reach out (or ask someone from the ROF team to reach out) and find a third voice (or double anchor) to add to the post.
