it’s all about love

20 everyone can see what we can see 1

“If you must be heard, let it be like a babbling brook …
If you must be seen, let it be like sunlight … .”*

This is more an intention of the heart than bringing the one perfect thing to another.

It is an intention to which we apply all of our inventiveness:

‘Intersection thinking is a methods for creating overlap between seemingly disconnected ideas in order to generate new ideas, directions and strategies for powering your own success.’**

Then, we ask of the word or idea or presence or action we offer:

Does this have a good spirit?
Does it forge relationship or community?

Our willingness to see and understand differently makes the offering of something which has a good spirit and creates community more possible:

“Discovery consists of seeing what everybody has seen and thinking what nobody has thought.”**

I watched the clouds moving from right to left across the sky, passing across the place the rising sun was to be found.  To my right, the clouds were purple-grey but, as they passed over the rising sun, they became salmon-cream.

20 clouds

It left me wondering: what kind of person can I become to others?

In the end, it’s all about love.
