The generous look

Everything changes once you see how the universe is designed for abundance and not for scarcity. It not only changes the condition of your life but it changes you.*
(Erwin McManus)

Formal learning – classrooms and workshops – is the source of only 10 to 20 percent of what people can learn at work.**
(Jay Cross)

When we look more generously at others and our world something quite astonishing happens. It’s as though a great abundance has only been waiting for the invitation of a generous look to joyfully show itself and be seen, that is, to be known fully.

The generous look takes a lifetime of practise, requiring us to be open-minded, open-hearted and open-willed for as long as possible. It’s hard but it’s worth it:

People are wonderful. And they can be hard.^
