You need change in order for momentum to keep up. Bringing in new people into a (coliving) community brings the freshness and diversity needed.
Communities are based on the principle of dynamic stability: it is the change in terms of experience, people and context that creates stability in the subjectivity of the experience - constantly feeding with freshness, newness, diversity.
My issue and pain of communities being dynamic entities disappears in light of that discovery: while I beforehand was frustrated that investing into a community does not mean keeping the bond with the same people, I now realize that change is the part that creates extreme beauty and preciousness: every community experience is an agglomeration of ephemeral states and contexts, making every day a new playground.
We need leaders who put momentum into action, who spin the wheel to create dynamic stability. And that requires visibility and influence.
