PeterBurgess, Mendenyo, May 16, 2007 the Tr-Ac-Net (www.tr-ac-net.org) website and database is developing. Still a lot to do, but it is starting to have a form that shows what we are aiming to have in the end. A lot of the site still does not work, and there are many areas where there is still a lot to do, but I am encouraged that it will eventually get to what it needs to be. The same goes for the Integrated Malaria Management Consortium website (www.IMMConsortium.org) that also is emerging.
JeffBuderer, October 16, 2009: I think Ben (BenDeVries) is expressing a frustration that is legitimate on some level and yet I feel that while Ben is pointing out issues with regards to Marcin (MarcinJakubowski), he may be less willing to look at similar issues manifesting within himself.
So my thought is that it is important that we deal with our shit before we point the finger at the other. We also need to learn to communicate with those we feel we have been abused and taken advantage of, in a respectful way as much as possible and to see that they are doing what they do out of sickness. We cant take it personally. We have to stay removed from their disease and to instead focus on addressing the core problem with our unease at the state of the world. Because being unable to accept the inevitable the fatality and impermanence of life is hardly a solution to what ails us as species. The challenge is to accept the possible futility of our actions as human beings. All that we do may not make a difference and reverse the larger global trendlines of self-destruction, but it is our bloated ego that prevents us from accepting our own smallness in relation to the greatness of the world and the universe. However this does not negate the potential for us to do great and inspirational things, but there is a certain way and approach to transcend the futility of human life and become something greater than ourselves that can be a beacon of hope for others.
With regards to the specific topic at hand...Ben felt he put a lot of effort into the project but also had a sense that his effort was not respected, valued and appreciated. Yet is Ben willing to accept some of what Marcin was saying about some of Ben's attitudes and behaviors that he felt were distasteful and counterproductive to his work?
AndriusKulikauskas, October 16, 2009 I look at my life and I bought the pearl, gave everything away, was true in love, turned the other cheek, applied my talents, worked while my master was away, loved my enemy, loved my neighbor as myself, and loved God. What I'm believing is what's happening. What I'm finding is what I'm loving.
I encourage us to write about our life dreams, about our personal situation, and then work together on small projects to address them, and through such projects, foster our accountability to ourselves and each other.
Benoit, I know that you are going through very great challenges taking care of your wife Debbie and all. Even so, I invite you and all to think, what are small projects that we can do, for free or for $100, by which we might practice working together, help each other work towards our goals, and have a reference point for our accountability.
