The power of one

There is something in every one of you that waits and listens for the sounds of the genuine in yourself. It is the only true guide you will ever have.*
Howard Thurman

The relationships of thinking and feeling are at the heart of the creative process in all fields, including the arts and the sciences.**
Ken Robinson

This is the story we find ourselves in.

Members of the hive,
Each is also one,

Your genuine is not mine
and my genuine cannot be yours,
The somethingdifferent in every
of us.

In our thinking,
But beyond it.
In our feeling,
And yet beyond it.
In our openness to all
and everything
and everyone.

*Howard Thurman, quoted in Brian McLaren’s God Unbound;
**From Ken Robinson’s Out of Our Minds.
