There are almost endless intentional communities out there now. A simple search on intentional communities ( perhaps with the added word 'sustainability' along with the area where you are thinking to be would bring up quite a lot. I would think.

The best to you in your search!

it was a "do what I did, learn what I did" instead of a "try this, it has interesting effects". It's a recruitment to their thinking essentially, not an encouragement of our own findings.

I imagine there would not be a need for an "enlightened" society once a person is enlightened. :)

Are they really confused or is it who they talk to. Oh my, let's not ever say I don't know. I think they'd be troubled in what they witness but do they take sides! Is the answer to diminish the wise and bring them down to our level because we don't step up to another. When a teacher leaves a student is the teacher confused or the student. Do we expect the teacher to lower themselves just for us. The student is selfish or the teacher?

Look at what is going on in society, is it they who are causing the mayhem. I think they are above all of it, unattached and withdrawn. Wouldn't they say, listen, I told you and you were not listening. You had the opportunity to take an unknown path, setting a difference course of act. I knew where you were heading but this is, and is always your choice. I do not resonate with you.

One day we will realize, that group or society is going to have come from us. I know that that group or society is already in me. Not even God forces us, so why should gurus and such. That would in fact be violence.

Coming to the sad conclusion that none exists yet. My friend is wanting to start such a thing but is not quite enlightened yet. ;(

If there is, its probably filled with unenlightened people who claim to be enlightened.

I don't see how anyone can imagine wrong. They may jump to a wrong conclusion from their imagination but to imagine wrong???
