Connecting Community to Place

Community and place. When I write of place I am writing about the first chakra. When I consider this chakra I consider it as flesh, the most fundamental aspect of place. Today as I consider place I see an association with community. I did not expect that. I now see that this is due to my reluctance to connect community there. This is where I would hide, in the shadow of my flesh.

This chakra is also as our root. Not the root’s, but it is from here that we take, or make, root. This is the nature of the first chakra’s connection to community. In allowing this reach community becomes more familiar and less of what I want to avoid. I think this is where I have stumbled.

The rooting of place is not intended to fix us in place but rather to free us. To give us our full reach and realm.
