About Ahgamen and why I created this virtual place for discussion on the cooperative
Ahgamen is a name for why a man went on a spiritual quest, it's for living life more fully, to find the meaning of it all. I happened to link up with the group and the land by a set of circumstances, as I guess each of us has their own story. The specifics are not as important as the idealogical principles of continuing this association. I find myself in an interesting flow of experiences. Here is a place to live. With others, as neighbors, as co-workers in solidarity. Here is a challenging prospect, filled with many other people who are joing together for a reason. and we are wanting to do something great together. Or is it good? Is it fair? Is it justice? Is it urgent? Is it peaceful? Is it sustainable? Is it revolutionary? Is it practical? I believe it's ultimately about being more spiritually aware of the self and everything surrounding us in the world. Slowly, gradually.
As part of all this, the challenging prospect is the fact that many indviduals are already meeting here at this geographical place. The talking is happening, but also the doing. We are also joining within this virtual concept. It's a concept of community, of cooperative, of Solidarity Farm. There a wealth of information around this idea, an ongoing flow of communication. But I was thinking that a stream of emails was not sufficient. Email is good for peer to peer correspondence and it is private, secret, used on a need-to-know basis. Yet where is the transparency? Where is the public record? Where can we have a more open, shared source of info?
I am offering this cooperativeadmin.blog as a tool for our discussions. I know there is a pre-existing face b o o k. This could then be an alternative, additional source. This is a sort of forum. I'm just going to do this and invite others to participate, if it seems useful. I will adminster the info herein. I don't know how active this will become or how long it will be of any active use. I can predict that it will decrease in its usefulness after awhile, but it can remain online for any newbies that come along later, wanting to study the historical background of the movement.
This has been kind of an intro to the blog website. Thanks for reading and feel free to join the discussion.
