This is the entrance to my Digital Garden. It's a way for me to share my working notes, and ideas that I'm tinkering with. There are many inspirations for this, but one of them is Andy Matuschak's idea of [Working with the garage door up](https://notes.andymatuschak.org/About_these_notes?stackedNotes=z21cgR9K3UcQ5a7yPsj2RUim3oM2TzdBByZu). You can learn more about the concept of Digital Gardens [[Digital Garden|here]]. I'm still trying to figure out the best way to structure my notes, so for now you'll just have to muck around and hope you stumble upon something interesting. For perennials, check out [[Essential Questions]]. Access my Top of Mind archive [[Top of Mind (Archived)|here]]. --- # Top of Mind Three major journeys are coming together for me: [[Digital Garden/Nonviolent Communication|Nonviolent Communication]], [[Sociocracy as a governance system|Sociocracy]] and [[Degrowth]]. These are journeys I wish I had embarked on decades ago. Better late than never, I suppose. I believe these three represent pathways to "surviving the future" (to borrow words from David Fleming). Most of my time is now taken up by taking courses, finding mentors, and doing my own research in these fields. The times call for millions of us to become a Gandhi, a Martin Luther King, a Thich Nhat Hanh. This isn't a time to think, "Well, I'm going to let someone else be that person we need." Rather, it is imperative that we all think, "If there is a one in a million chance that I might be that person, then I should live my life as if I were." That is what Thich Nhat Hanh might have meant when he said that the next Buddha will be a Sangha, or community. I don't want to fall into the saviour mentality trap, but neither do I want to abnegate my responsibility for this moment.
