  • Gentle Action Blog » Gentle Action reflections from Hala Makarem
    example of a self organizing environment the inherent creativity within the individuals embraces the chaos that comes with the constant living in or under the pressure of war and conflict resulting in a chaotic order that keeps everyone aligned and moving making sure the dance does not collapse the dancers The country stays solid in its market and attraction it remains resilient as the sense of love of life supersedes conflict in harmonizing chaos into a self organized order Co initiating A group came together through the common intention and through their unwavered presence in the whole process trusting the emergent outcome an existing group had people opt out when commitment became a decisive factor when the association of economics to security superseded the passion that lies in the heart of the matter Butterfly effect this afternoon on July 22nd I received the following from a co creator Jan has offered to help find resources so let s have a conversation in right timing if you think that might be needed at any time I am so excited that our little Friday conversation with an intimate small group in Beirut around the future of media may spark many conversations in Lebanon and beyond it s incredible what a butterfly s wing can achieve Unexpected side effects Working on resolving the sanitary disposal in the capital away from a more comprehensive outlook resulted in the shift of the crisis to another very touristic area in the country The increase of real estate business in the country pours money into investors and the country but the effect is that the country is no longer being developed to serve its people who can not afford the new prices resulting in a shift of the demographic and dynamics of the key asset of the community its diversity and interrelations One of the major side effects that I experienced which was a trigger for change was that despite the successful implementation of development projects in the public sector in Lebanon through foreign aid the outcome was not sustainable the ownership was not in the right place a state of dependency was becoming an integral culture all of which were supporting corruption and more importantly the lack of initiative for learning and contributing the result is an aging public sector unable to find its liberation outlet to respond to 21st century challenges One positive side effect that I witness is when community members are invited into an authentic participatory engagement they sense belonging and become loyal to the initiative and all supporting activities Creative Suspension the activities of observation and reflection are very active during this process there will be heightened awareness and sensitivity to the reality unfolding and the intuition enfolded there will be active participation through conscious awareness as for just doing nothing the process has stopped and unconscious activities take over there is no connection between reality and what wants to unfold there is a breakdown in the communication channel which increases fragmentation

    27 pm Hi David This story reminds me of one I wanted to share with you about a growing number of karma restaurants that are opening in the US They re primarily volunteer run and operate on the pay it forward generosity of their clients Here s a brief description from Karma Kitchen http karmakitchen org Imagine a restaurant where there are no prices on the menu and where the check reads 0 00 with only this footnote Your meal was a gift from someone who came before you To keep the chain of gifts alive we invite you to pay it forward for those dine after you That s Karma Kitchen a volunteer driven experiment in generosity This is an example of Gentle Action to me because its viability is an extension of resources characteristics temperament of the community in which it is based Other Links to this Post RSS feed for comments on this post TrackBack URI Leave a comment Name Email not published Website Comment moderation is in use Your comment will appear shortly Entries RSS Comments RSS About this blog Categories Creative Suspension Gentle Action Trust Recent posts Listening Unsweet Charity Maxims Sustainable City of the Future SHAPE program Complete list of recent posts Recent Comments Andrea Barbieri on Rabbits in Kenya charity on Rabbits in Kenya Boniface MW on Rabbits in Kenya Tracy on Rabbits in Kenya Janet Bravo on Rabbits in Kenya Complete list of recent comments Links Buy F David Peat s Gentle Action F David Peat Pari Center for New Learning Archives December 2011 November 2011 August 2011 April 2011 December 2010 November 2010 September 2010 August 2010 July 2010 June 2010 January 2010 December 2009 October 2009 September 2009 August 2009 July 2009 May 2009 April 2009 March 2009 February 2009
