Tradition 3 – Participation 

3. Tradition of Participation
Desire is paramount to adopting a New Way of Living. It begins with a willingness to be and do more. It is said all that is needed to begin is a mere thimbleful of willingness- an honest desire to change beyond who we think we are and what we think we know. 
Desire, on it’s own, is simply a ticket in the door. Everyone is welcome at the table and a seat has been reserved just for you. But to be part of the Whole, more is required. Desire is not enough. We cannot be left wanting. There is work to do.
We practice a New Design for living, first, with a realization that we are born part of something greater. Secondly, there is an innate understanding that being a part of the larger Universe necessitates our participation. Our decisions are only as strong as our follow-through. We must be responsible for more than just ourselves. We have a duty and an obligation. We must do.
The Universe is calling to us every moment, begging us to act. We move in Good Orderly Direction through the Great Open Door. Together, we are on a path of healing and growth. We do not simply speak of desire. We show desire through our participation. 
We pray with our feet.
~S.D.
