15 when service

Life.  It’s all about service, and it’s all about identifying our kind of creativity and going for it.

And these two things can live together … beautifully.

When we engage in service and creativity, we’re engaging in a human revolution.  We’re on the cusp of the next stage of becoming human: to be both conscious and caring and creative.

‘It is here where the synergistic interplay of courage, wisdom, and generosity make us most creative.’*

The story we’re telling ourselves is far more important than the history we find ourselves inheriting.  History is what others have done, but we get to shape the story now.

‘[T]he leader may be any one of us.’**

Here, if we choose to accept it, is our mission.
