    11. 18. Zegg There are no ready recipes for the building of new ways of living. Too complex are the challenges of our time. Besides the changes needed on the outer level like sustainable technologies new circumstances must be created to support inner growth. We founded ZEGG in 1991 in order to bring these two aspects of change together. What is it that the earth needs? What is it that humans need?
    12. 19. Lakabe Lakabe is a life project that has forged itself. It has made a long journey to get to this point in which it has managed to consolidate a community structure, with a secure material base from the same community, which has not needed to send anyone to work outside, which is self-sufficient in diverse areas & has always kept improving economically.

    29. 41. <ul><li>Practice the Art of Personal Presence. Embrace the tension of opposites and tolerate and encourage the abstract, the unexpected and the discomfort of expanded consciousness. </li></ul><ul><li>Practice Mudhita, the ageless Buddhist practice that is the other side of the coin of compassion. Identify with the joy, gifts, pleasures and awakenings of others. This is the art of vicarious joy that banishes cynicism & envy. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>Make your communication mindful and compassionately brief. Be appropriate, both on a one to one basis and with the whole group. </li></ul><ul><li>  Do not ‘triangulate’. If we have issues or conflicts we should clear them with the individual concerned & not report to others. This is all about cultivating a culture of direct communication rather than gossip. </li></ul><ul><li>  Practice punctuality. Time is limited. It demonstrates a respect for group process.   </li></ul><ul><li>  Practice consensus by default, perhaps the most difficult ideal to achieve at all times.   </li></ul><ul><li>  Practice Random Acts of Kindness   </li></ul>Findhorn Guides for living in Community
