The Story of Interbeing is an old story, not new. It answers questions like: Who am I? Why am I here? Where do we come from? Where are we going? All ancient questions asked by humans pretty much since the beginning.
It is different from being interdependent. Interdependent refers to me needing you to survive. It goes deeper by acknowledging that my existence depends on the existence of other beings. There is a mutuality, a taking into account what another being desires or requires.
Interbeing rests on the premise that everything is sentient, has consciousness, not just humans - everything that exists, from the cosmos down to the smallest particle. Therefore it behooves us to ask questions and not just assume that we know what another being needs.
What would happen if we asked the question: What is the dream of the world? Would that question contribute to an aliveness of the whole, make us aware of the gift that each component is? I am wondering if that would take away the sense of scarcity that is created by the story of separation and thus allow for a gift economy.
What would change for you if you knew that you are a gift? That you are seen in your greatness, in your genius? Our individual greatness becomes the gift we can offer to the whole? In everybody and teverything offering its gift to the whole, each being is taken care of.
What if we can use our greatness and gifts to 'translate aspects of our lives from the story of separation to the story of interbeing? Aspects like law, politics, government, money which currently are just stories we belief in. By looking at nature for instance, we can see how these things are dealt with in a way that is serving all, not just a few. In doing that we step away from the old way of solving problems to a broader, different level of consciousness as Albert Einstein suggests.
Also, are we willing to not be celebrated as the inventor of an idea and allow groups of people dreaming of how the idea could look like, be actualized. This 'dreaming' will create something that is greater than a single person could have imagined.
I am amazed at how much is seen as part of the new world which still carries the separation and judgment. And how much is already available, yet hardly known, that has already the seeds of interbeing in it. Are we willing to look for it; to adopt it; to live it? Or am I dreamer?
