Sunday Love Letter

I write them so that…

  1. You remember your culture-making power
  2. You have the inspiration + tools you need to grow a business that generates money AND justice

Let’s create a future in which we all flourish.

Are you in?

Today it is about systems.⁠
⁠
We're trying to get free of systems that harm us...⁠
⁠
...which means we often recoil from building our own systems, in our lives and careers and businesses.⁠
⁠
But systems and structures can be liberatory -- personally, and collectively.⁠
⁠
They can reduce chaos and harm. They can  produce ease and pleasure. They can be life-giving.⁠
⁠
And indeed, if our goal is to dismantle systems of oppression, we're going to need to replace those structures with something else.⁠
⁠
Like, ones that facilitate FLOURISHING.⁠
⁠
All that to say...today's email is about reclaiming power, money, community and SYSTEMS AND STRUCTURES.⁠

Let's grow them on OUR terms. #WeAreTheCultureMakers #SundayLoveLetter⁠

**Culture making = tiny acts of doing-it-differently**

Every day, whether we are conscious of it or not, we are making and remaking our culture.

Each of us makes a million tiny agreements at any given moment to go along with our culture and make things run smoothly.

A lot of the times, people disagree with the demands and dictates and practices of our culture, but swallow their voice and say nothing.

And even in that moment, in the internal dissonance and the absence of action, they are culture makers.

In that moment, they (we!) allow the over-culture to continue as it is, unimpeded.

We let the voice of culture speak through our mouths and use our bodies and lives in order to stabilize and regenerate itself.

And that reveals a huge opportunity: we can choose how to deliberately use our culture-making power.

Instead of letting an unjust culture flow through us, we can interrupt it — and we can make a new one.

And we do it with tiny, consistent, committed words + actions + experiments + contributions each day.

**Tiny acts of doing-it-differently are culture making.**

Tiny acts of doing-it-differently dislodge the web of cooperation that the unjust culture requires in order to continue functioning — and creates something new, instead.

For the future, and for right now.

Culture isn’t ‘out there’ or something that’s set in stone and unchanging.

Culture is living and organic; it’s in us; it acts on us; it moves through us…and we co-create it, every day.

And so we, the culture makers, have the power to disrupt it, reimagine it, and make a new one in which everyone flourishes.

Let's do that in a  million tiny ways, every day.

Our  tiny acts of doing-it-differently, every day, add up to a whole new world.

Today I'm teaching my Money + Justice Workshop at 10 am - free!⁠
⁠
It's for everyone who's playing what I call 'the double game' -- striving to create a flourishing livelihood in the existing paradigm while also creating a whole new paradigm.⁠
⁠
***********⁠
⁠
If you've got mixed feelings about money, you're not alone -- and this workshop is designed to help.⁠
⁠
Former attendees often tell me this class dissolves unnecessary shame on contact :)⁠
⁠
Because the truth is, we're not bad with money. Our culture has been deliberately bad at distributing money to us.⁠
⁠
And...no more.⁠
⁠
Let's interrupt that pattern and create a whole new reality for ourselves and our communities.⁠
⁠
************⁠
⁠
If you can't make it live, there WILL be a recording...but you have to be signed up to get it.⁠
⁠
 (There's an automation that helps me not have to send a gazillion things by hand.)⁠
⁠
Link in bio @kelly.diels to sign up.⁠
⁠
See you in a few hours!⁠
⁠
love + justice (and money!)⁠
