Admiration

Share it Please
I try to identify the qualities of the people I admire
And I’ve made it my assignment to try to take on the qualities
That I admire the most in other people.

And I am noticing how much my growth
Is appreciated by the people around me.
In a way, it makes it easier for them to love me
And for me to love them.

Who is “them”?
Well, the entire world.

And as I open my gaze to take in the world
It becomes really big
And for some people – a little overwhelming.

Especially when you begin to notice just how much need there is
Just how much suffering there is
Just how many problems there are
Just how disasterous the absence of global human rights is.

And sometimes what good people do
Is sink into a kind of personal focus, an isolation
As a way of not being overwhelmed…
And deal only with personal needs… or worse
Stop noticing there is a world out there.

But if you court love in your life –
it wont leave you alone until you open up and expand
and walk right up to the things you think you cant handle.

Seeing Good At Work

Seeing Good At Work
I have been through the book three times over three years, and am starting it again. This is not because the material in the book is not working, but because it is working so well! The weekly lessons keep me on track and focused on what is actually true and important, and help me experience more good in every area of my life. LS
