A persons story tells the community a lot. And shows people building blocks and ways to show up for people in a meaningful way. I personally believe that knowing peoples stories is foundational for the growth and expansion we can experience.
I propose that every person’s profile has at least a general piece of their story on it. with the understanding that there is always more to someone’s story. I propose that each person can choose to give Seeds to a person by the stories they read and connect to. And gain Seeds just by someone reading, connecting to and appreciating their story.
(Maybe not seeds? Maybe a different token? But something that brings an exchange of abundance)
Maybe we have a safe space for connection and expansion on peoples stories. A place where people can share ever changing portions of their stories. Or a profile that a person can add posts to add to their story.
maybe we also have a more private space where people can get more vulnerable and share the things in their stories that they might need support on but not want to share publicly. (We may already have a space for this on other DHOs (I hope I used that term correctly because it seems there was some confusion in last outer space) so do we want this portion on SEEDS?) I am learning more and more that vulnerability creates deeper connections but also that not everyone wants to take part in that and I think that is okay.
I think that this stories idea could be extremely helpful for people to make good, effective and substantial connections that can help fuel us through the work we are doing here as well as on a larger expression of this for people doing work anywhere in the world.
I do propose on small scale we establish something for this group to at least know our Renaissance Explorers team mate’s stories. And then we can think about a larger scale a place on peoples SEEDS profiles and also outside of their profile to share who they are and also share their story.
I have a huge desire to support beautiful people, sustainable businesses, and the good in the world. (The seeds in my account are dedicated to that) It’s hard to do that without knowing their stories.
I don’t know what this would look like in it fully functional form or if I expressed it in an understandable way. Collaboration on this idea would be greatly invited.
