We will find home in the sense of truth and trust and mutual support that we will develop between us. find ourselves far away from our ideal destina- tion and yet—if we will hold our vision close to our hearts—we will be able to answer honest- ly—“Here we are”—we are not there yet—but we are on the right path. Having a vision of a healed earth and a healed society is like a GPS. We can find orientation if we have a clear direction of where we want to go and if we are honest about where we are right now. In the same way that individuals needs to find their embedment in a community, a commu- nity needs to find its embedment and growth through its position in a network of communi- ties that shares the same goal of global heal- ing. In this way, a functioning healing biotope is an open system. Its power comes both from the transformation process that its members VOL. 34, NO. 1 are ready to go through and also from this network of connec- tion with other centers of trans- formation. I like to compare it to astronomical research that began in May, 2017. In this re- search the astronomers wanted to know more about the huge black hole that is in the middle of our galaxy. It is impossible to look directly at a black hole, but you can look at its event hori- zon—at the effect it has on its surrounding. To be able to do this, nine different observatories in different places around the world simultaneously focused their radio telescopes at the black hole. United together, the nine telescopes were able to give us insight into the possibility of cooperation between different centers around the earth. When they manage to be coherent and attuned with each other, we can better understand the center of our galaxy. Processing the data gathered from this experiment will take around 2 years, but the first images and calculations are already available. The attempt to look at the core of our galaxy is similar to the attempt to look at the core of humanity. I can see a similar experi- ment in which nine healing biotopes in differ- ent places around the world simultaneously focus on the questions of our times, deploy people to be of service to the transformation that is needed while exploring the core of their humanness. When we manage to transform the human core in those experimental centers from fear to trust it might have an attraction power as strong as a black hole that causes the whole galaxy to dance around it. We will never know if we do not try! © 2019 TIKKUN MAGAZINE 115
