Leaving a Legacy

Developing your integrative Rule of Life over the coming years and decades will shape your Rule of Life into a personal potent tool to help solve seemingly intractable social struggles over time.

Creating an integrated Rule of Life is your first step to further your efforts to integrate spiritual principles and practices to help solve social struggles. Shaping your integrated Rule of Life over a lifetime will not only include all of your other steps but will include your final integration and solution motivated steps.

Sharing your life-long integrated Rule of Life with others is a unique spiritual legacy.

Leaving a life-long integrated Rule of Life for others is a distinctive spiritual legacy.

Because of your legacy, others may be encouraged to craft their own integrated Rule of Life to help solve social struggles with others in the communities and cities in which they live, work, worship, recreate, socialize, and serve.

Because of your legacy, others may reflect upon how your spiritual principles and practices became interactive with social solutions while reflecting upon the on-going development of their own integrated Rule of Life and adopt one or more of your practices or adapt one or more of theirs.

Leave a Legacy

Urban Monks are encouraged to leave a legacy that will be promoted by the Society of Urban Monks over the years.

Share a spiritual principle that you integrated into your efforts to help solve a social struggle with others.

Share a spiritual practice that you integrated into your efforts to help solve a social struggle with others.

Share more about what you integrated into your Rule of Life. Perhaps a vignette involving

  • a person, group of persons, a meeting, workshop, conference, art, movie, or television show that helped shape a spiritual principle or practice that you integrated into your efforts to help solve social problems with others;
  • a spiritual mystic or social reformer whose spiritual principles or practices whose efforts to help solve seemingly intractable social struggles were inspirational; or
  • an ancient spiritual practice that you are using to help solve with others a contemporary social prejudice.

“. . . entrust these to faithful people who will be able to pass them on to others also."

(2 Timothy 2.2)

Your experience(s) will be posted on the Society for Urban Monks web site and included in an end of year volume of spiritual principles, spiritual practices, and vignettes distributed free of charge to help inspire others to advance their efforts to right social wrongs.
