Connection to one’s environment extends and broadens. This connection refers to people’s involvement in their community, appreciation for needs satisfied, sense of satisfaction through work, acceptance of unfulfilled desires, evaluation of land use in a protective manner, and willingness to take on difficult tasks that better the environment…
Community involvement is an extension of connection to the environment. As described in the previous section, people are meant to build together, to help one another, to create lives together. People who hold themselves aloof or separate from their community do so to the detriment of their own personal needs and balance. No one person has all the knowledge needed to live successfully (that is, to survive). People are designed to live in communal groups. Larger communal groups have developed, which some people may feel are alienating, but the existence of these large communal groups do not invalidate the need for community involvement. On the contrary, the larger the communal group the more critical the need to find community connection.
- Consider the available channels for community service in your area and select one that is doable for you. Then examine your time wasters and select one or two that can be replaced by the community service. Then make it happen!
