How Andy Talks

Andy: I also wanted to mention that Zach said the three month mark is usually when people are more encouraged to step in closer to the community in terms of functions and for you I'd suggest if you do want to stay to take into prayer if there are any volunteer functions you may want to be a part of while you're here. For example remote volunteering is mostly computer function and you can pick how many hours per week you want to spend on it, even if you're extremely busy you can still pick a specific number of hours you want to spend so it's doable for anyone really. Let me know how that feels to you but Zach did mention that to me for you if you wanted to stay another month that it felt helpful if you wanted to pick up more function and this would be a way of coming closer to David especially if that's what you want to do and I know based off one of your emails to him in the past that might be a desire you have in your mind. Let me know if you have any thoughts or if you want to connect on that โœจ๐ŸŒž
Alexa: Thanks for the thoughts.
Andy: You're welcome my friend โœจ๐ŸŒž

Andy: Hi Alexa, I just joined with Zach and it feels like at the moment everyone who has committed to staying here next month has time on their hands and are able to give specific time commitments and I know you are working on a lot projects at the moment and aren't able to give a specific time commitment so to allow the ones that do and since we are receiving applications from new people, it feels like it could be guided for you not to stay another month unless you're able commit to a specific time commitment and have time on your hands to be here in fuller service. So we could move forward with the idea that you will not stay unless we hear back a specific time commitment and a strong desire to be here in service with other mighty companions and have the time for that since everyone else will be in the same position so we're all on the same page
Alexa: Okay.

Andy: Hi Alexa, do you feel inspired around helping with the installation of the wheel on the garden gate if that's bought beforehand? [Housemate] wrote his name down on the fridge for that but we're open to having you do it since he has some other functions and it feels inspiring if you wanted to help support with that โœจ
Alexa: No.
Andy: Ok thanks for letting me know, I only brought it up because you had mentioned it to me earlier but then I didn't know what your thoughts were after that or why you had mentioned in the first place so I wanted to get clear about that โœจ
Alexa: Yes, I understand.

แดแด€ษดแด…แด€แด›แดส€ส day of silence is imposed on the community.

Andy (via WhatsApp): Hi Alexa, I know you like to figure out how to fix things so I wanted to ask if you might want to figure out how to fix our leaky showerhead? I just stopped it from leaking by turning the dial several times but it's a bit leaky in general and I haven't been able to see why that is. Let me know if that's something you might want to explore โœจ๐Ÿคฉ
Alexa (via WhatsApp): I'll have a look at it.
Alexa (speaking vocally): *raises question about what the point of mandating silence if we still text via WhatsApp*
Andy (via WhatsApp): The silence verbally is because it's much more tempting for the ego to speak through our bodies generally speaking than it is to send a message because that's usually not as impulsive so it's part of the mind training.
Alexa: "It is more tempting for the ego to speak through outer bodies general speaking than text"..... You just made that up.
Alexa: Straight lie. Do you even believe that?
Andy: That's been my experience so yes I have no reason to lie about it โœจ๐Ÿ˜‚
Alexa: Alright. Thats a personal perception, and not universally true. If its true for you I suppose that's good for you to watch out for.
Alexa: The fact that its true for you and not everyone places the whole belief in ego realm, so it's good to not be invested in it.
Alexa: Both speaking verbally and in text are domains of the ego, solvable by a unified purpose, but not differentiatble otherwise.
Andy: Yes that seems to be the phase I'm in and it seems like it applies to most of our group right now but it might not apply so much for you, it depends on ego dynamics. Yes that's right that it's solved by a unified purpose, that feels like the theme right now in my mind, very similar to that video I just put out to the group โœจ๐Ÿคฉ
Alexa: Yeah I got the phrase "unified purpose" directly from that vid ๐Ÿ˜ perfect
Andy: Yes, by the way I wanted to check in with you regarding if you feel the guidance to stay another month after this one? Someone has applied for our bunk room but at the moment if everyone stayed there wouldn't be any space so I wanted to check in if you had any thoughts about that at this moment โœจ๐Ÿคฉ
Alexa: I wouldn't plan for me here next month. If the space fills, I'll take it as a sure sign to head out. ๐Ÿ˜
Andy: Sounds good, thanks Alexa โœจ๐ŸŒž

*10 days later*

Andy: Hi Alexa, I realized you already confirmed that you wouldn't be here next month and since I messaged our room in a separate WhatsApp group and haven't heard from you specifically then I'll just assume your guidance hasn't changed around that so that [other person]. can move into our room next month โœจ
Alexa: In no way have I confirmed I wouldn't be here next month.
Alexa: I wouldn't plan for me here next month. If the space fills, I'll take it as a sure sign to head out. ๐Ÿ˜
Alexa: ^ thats exactly what I said. And yes nothing's changed from that. ๐Ÿ‘
Andy: The space is filling so maybe you can let me know when you know for sure so we can let [other person] know or make arrangements around that โœจ

Andy: Hi Alexa, [other person] mentioned that he had joined with you and you volunteered to make his bed after he left, were you still going to do that?
Alexa: Yes.
