Yeah! This is it! Let’s work towards a culture where these values are alive in our everyday existence! From the day I have left my first psychedelic trance festival (O.Z.O.R.A.) I have been working on this in my life. You are not alone! Our numbers are of a nation, yet I feel every one of us has to walk his/her own path back to experiencing this feeling of Oneness even if you are alone or in the harch cultural environment of the mainstream.
Let these festivals and our own intimate moments be our lighthouses pointing towards the future we will bring into existence! :)

#1 “Tell me about / think of one good thing that happened to you today!” That rules cause it instantly makes them think about something they can be grateful for :)
#2 If I see something worries them, I won’t question ‘how are you’ cause I can see that very well, I ask for what is worrying them and is that something I can do for them. Plain, honest and easy ;)
Anyway, in my native language (hungarian) ‘how are you’ is a phrase not so often used in everyday greetings, instead of it we ask something like ‘what’s new with you?’, which is a much more personal question in my opinion. I tend to answer honestly but shortly, telling about both actual happenings and my thoughts / feelings I have about the world.

Halfway reading this the tears just came and they stayed with me until I finished, washing away some hidden burden of mine. Thank you, yoinkie, and my heart said thanks, too. Even though I haven’t lost any of my closer relatives or friends to this day, I’m suddenly feeling a burst of grace just to live them. Thank you again!

Nice analysis! I recommend the method ‘Compassionate Communication’ by Rosenberg in this topic. The full 10-lesson lecture is up on YouTube, I cannot emphasize enough how useful this method is for solving conflicts between and inside of us. Emotions are absolute Truth. Keep rolling, peace!

I do somewhat similar to this as I write my diary, I collect Stars that represent precious moments that made that day worth it.
My top 3 on this lazy day:
1. Walking in the city in the wet rainy evening, looking at a tree and suddenly having a high just looking at it, it was so beautiful, I can’t explain it, my mind just turned into wonder mode, even though I’ve seen that tree a thousand times before.
2. Feeling good in my skin after a micro-training, followed by relaxing and meditation.
3. Finding epic music on the internetz!!

Oh, Yeah! True story, and happened to me before. VERY important part of “do not resist anything” (and also a paradox) is not to resist your inner resistance, as it is trying to show you something you don’t pay attention to. (usually yourself..)
The message is very similar to what I got when I had my first LSD trip, which is something like “Happiness is The Natural State of Everything”. Since then, when I manage to let go of all my resistance, I can return to this state with a huge smile on mah face. Cheers!

Count me in! ;)
In fact, I’m so much in that we’ve just started to build a self-sustaining community in february here, in Hungary! In the country we have a few more-or-less self-sustaining communities, but ours is far more radical and fresh in spirit. We have BIG goals, and we won’t be stopped by anything.
The tricky part in our group is communication. Back in the spring, 20-30 people with families came together to bulid something, or at least we thought so. Today, we’ve only got five or six Really Dedicated people, plus we’re poor as fuck (we’ve got a small property in the countryside plus the one next to it that we’re using anyway :P).
We’re pioneers on a road that was never discovered before, so problems do arise often. As for documentation and how-tos, we haven’t made one yet, but we’ve got plans for a wiki site, at least.
We’re learning permaculture, our founders are teaching the superadobe technology in Hungary, which is quite cool, plus I’m very interested in earthships, too. Aquaponics are also getting popular in the country, so we are planning to implement an aquaponic garden as well.
As for inner improvement, we’ve got various backgrounds and methods we share with each other. Nowadays I’m really interested in Marshall Rosenberg’s work, Compassionate Communication.
All in all, I’m really interested in your implementation methods, especially for the organizing part. Let’s share experiences, man! We’re so on our way! c:
