Wise Groups

What groups are you a part of?

If you're going to choose an identity, find one which promises to take you somewhere instead of pushing you to keep looking back.

If you wish to be part of a group, choose one (or, better yet, create one) which is future-oriented and doesn't maintain constant (re)-view of the past.

If you're already part of a tribe which seems anchored to the past, the absolute best thing you may wish to do for it is to reinvent it. Bring in something new.

I'm thinking organisations. Or clubs. Or virtual communities. Or religious denominations.

Never glory in the past except in so far as the past has the potential to shape the future. The best groups to join or those which exist for the sake of her non-members.

Imagine a country (or company or church) like that.
