You don’t have to wait for a natural disaster to practice. You can begin by looking for ways to interact with others that would potentially yield more benefit to all than any of you could provide individually. Perhaps sharing lawn mower ownership with a neighbor(s), car-pooling, or rotating shifts by a hospitalized friend’s bedside or cooking meals for her children. There are countless ways to cooperate. As you begin to experiment look for benefits that you will find in all of them – satisfaction, gratification, and fulfillment. Is the potential of creating these in your life worth some experimentation to you?
