The fundamental urge of humankind-as-a-whole is to participate—not to be shut down, not to be thrown back on themselves, not to be treated merely as consumers who want this, that, and the other thing.
People want the opportunity of participation.
All over the world, the energy of participation is what should be tapped.
Instead of addressing everybody in terms of their problems, their “self”-interest, their consumer mentality, their egoity, address them as people who are patterns of energy wanting to participate.
The human world is an energy of participation.
Therefore, it needs a pattern by which people can participate.
The pattern must be provided.
