why what who when

16 who why what when

What happens when these four things come together, identifying a moment in time when a group of people are meant to do something exceptional, to do some great good in the universe?

Up close, each appears to have an inner and outer expression:

Why do others need this and why do I need this?
What kind of thinking, relating, behaving would really help others, and how does this help me?
Who will I work with and who will benefit?
When, as in, is this the time when others need this, and am I ready.

To see our own why/what/who/when needs as such an important part of this may sound selfish; Brené Brown helps us to see that we’re really talking about love here when she explains it this way:

‘Love is not something we give or get; it is something that we nurture and grow, a connection that can only be cultivated between two people when it exists within each of them – we can only love others as such as we can love ourselves.’*

If you find yourself with a special group of people at a particular time in history for a significant challenge.

Of course, there’s only one way to find out.
