Between “I have to” and “I can’t” there is (at least) a third possibility; perhaps we could call it “I know how.” We could call it “known and trusted function.”
In the midst of “I can’t,” to many of us, it seems clear why the can’t can’t; we know we can’t, we say we can’t, we struggle to achieve but we fail (predictably).
In the midst of “I have to,” there is a tremendous amount of energy that goes into believing the opposite of what “I can’t” proposes — so much energy and movement, a great need to lift the body, to urge it to action. It is sometimes like being held in place by one foot pressing the brake pedal to the floorboards, while then revving the engine and spinning up all systems by flooring the gas pedal too.
What is known and trusted function?
When do we say with calm and confidence, “I know how.” …?
Right before we succeed, surely more likely.
How many wonderful ways do I simply know how to succeed?
How many known-and-trusted-functions do I have easily available to me?
#ListenTo Homelessness on the West Coast is rising to crisis levels at a time of historic economic growth and prosperity. Why?
KNKX Public Radio and The Seattle Times’ Project Homeless spent one year in a city that’s grappling with homelessness.
#ReadingList Project Homeless is a Seattle Times initiative that explores and explains the region’s complex, troubling problem of homelessness.
‘ Without housing, just 50% were able to generate any income. One year after move-in, they’re up to 82%. And after an average length of 7 years of homelessness, 94% of the original tenants retained their housing after 18 months, with a 99% rent collection rate. ‘
Study Reveals It Costs Less to Give the Homeless Housing Than to Leave Them on the Street

‘ To see through the illusion of the separate self is at the same time to take away the power that fear has over us (as well as to empower ourselves), for the experience of separation and fear (of “the other”) mutually co-arise, reciprocally reinforcing each other.
Genuine compassion (which strengthens the immune system) is the result of this realization.
It is of the utmost significance, however, that the coronavirus is a quantum phenomenon, in that it contains within itself both death-creating poison as well as its own medicine. Encoded in the virus is its own vaccine – as interdependently connected cells in a greater living organism, each of us is being demanded by the coronavirus to realize how we can synergistically co-operate together so as to resist and overcome its invasion. ‘
. . . ‘ We will be complicit in creating a tragedy of historic proportions if we miss the hidden, golden opportunity that is encoded within the coronavirus pandemic. The coronavirus is helping us realize who we are relative to each other—one human family—thereby inspiring us to come together as one. This is the gift concealed within the disease that not only helps us to heal the disease, but heals us as well. ‘

‘ Bread has been a staple in the human diet for thousands of years.
CNBC International recently released a video which explains bread’s ancient origins, how it evolved and the rise of #sourdough.

‘ Welcome to a Special Care Focus regarding the Coronavirus – a technique for reducing and overcoming fear. In order for everyone around the world to participate in a synchronized Care Focus, beginning Wednesday, March 18th we have chosen three convenient times: 4 a.m., 12 p.m. (noon), and 8 p.m. Pacific Time (GMT/UTC minus 7 hours)*. Please join with others on the Global Coherence App or the Global Care Room. We will do this every Wednesday until the Coronavirus pandemic subsides. Thank you for joining with us.
At times we send a special Care Focus to help lift the energetic field when a global event creates disruption and fear throughout the planet. As the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic expands its footprint in over 100 countries, it’s obvious that fear and anxiety from uncertainty is robustly on the increase.
The Care Focus below is to compassionately help transform the intensity of personal fear into a more grounded attitude and feeling of managed concern which, unlike fear, connects us more deeply with our heart’s intuitive discernment. This provides clearer thinking, effective discernment, and much better choices through times of uncertainty and rapid changes.
Many people have benefitted from this practice because they are simply tired of fear repressing the power and strength of who they really are. We know that fear can serve a purpose to help us take precautionary measures, yet sustained, high amped fear can deteriorate two most important purposes — maintaining health and clarity in our reasoning.
Research has shown that balancing the energetic nature of our mind and emotions while practicing compassionate care for ourselves and others enhances the immune system. However, excessive worry, anxiety or fear compromises the immune system, and much more, making us increasingly susceptible to viruses and disease. Fear disempowers us, whereas the attitude of managed concern leaves us more in charge of our mental and emotional nature — and creates easier access to our intuitive guidance and highest choices. Fear disrupts this connection, especially when we need it the most for grounded direction.
As we watch the news reports, it’s effective to practice listening from the attitude of managed concern to reduce the fear effect. Be patient with yourself; any progress when dealing with fear is a lot of progress. Managed concern is a mental and emotional state that can leave us informed but not infected and debilitated by the emotional virus of fear momentums. The Care Focus practice below can help us progressively become more empowered and confident when challenged by fear and intense anxiety. Don’t give up. In the beginning it can seem more challenging. Put your heart into it and you will see results. Self-compassion and patience quicken our progress in fear maintenance.
Radiating compassionate care to yourself and others helps to calm the ramped up mental and emotional energy which drives fear momentums beyond what seems manageable. We can change these behavior imprints. We can use this virus as a practice opportunity to finally gain our power back by reducing our fear to managed concern which connects us with intelligent choices and actions.
Managed concern is a health-conscious replacement for fear. ‘
‘ How do we connect, organize, and deepen community amidst the necessary public health practice of social distancing? How do we combat the spread of isolation, othering, and fear? How do we increase solidarity, mutuality, and community care at this time of social emergency, and use what we learn toward making systemic change?
One way we can do this is by hosting space for community dialogue, reflection, and meaning-making, and movement-building online.
The USDAC is partnering with the Poor People’s Campaign to host our sixth annual People’s State of the Union (PSOTU) from March 20th–April 20th. The core element of a PSOTU event is a Story Circle, a powerful and democratic mode of surfacing individual and collective wisdom.
These events usually take place in person—in living rooms, theaters, community centers, classrooms. But because of the health risks associated with large public gatherings, especially for the most vulnerable folks in our communities, we are calling on our network to host all Story Circles online this year. And our team is here to support you!
Fill out this form by March 21st and we’ll support you with the video conferencing technology, training, and outreach you need to host a meaningful community Story Circle online. If you’d like, we will help invite other USDAC folks in your town, city, or state to join your online event.
Note that free Zoom accounts limit the amount of time and participants you can host. iI don’t already have a paid Zoom USDAC is able to support you by providing free access to ours. Just check the box “Yes, I will need access to the USDAC Zoom account” and we will send you next steps!
