Skillfully Generous – Impact (I Choose Love)

I constantly proffer the encouragement that it is not selfish to give growth and development time to self−the True Self. To do so is selfless; and in such selflessness you are becoming more and more skillfully generous.

As we enter the autumn season in this hemisphere, I open the time where I plan: think on this work to which I’m married, where I am and where I ought to go. I try to be smart about it all, but I’m not entirely sure that ever happens; unless of course it is simply smart to do what I love.

It is this unworkable aspect that makes most marriages resistant to mere strategy as a way of improving them or saving them. Something more essential needs to be fed at its center. −David Whyte, The Three Marriages: Reimagining Work, Self and Relationship

This planning season I will place love (my voice) at the center of my planning acts. If it comes down to trusting smart or love, I choose love−and this is smart. My responsibility−ability to respond−in and with it all is to be in the moment. For after all, when I’m doing my best work−having my Impact−I am fully present.

Love is the energetic center, my voice in all I do. Presence is the method; an objective holding me to what is good and right.

Sometimes personal and professional growth is about getting out of one’s own way. In this season of contemplation I will adjust to being with what is so that I am out of the way to what really ought to be through me; and with my soulful participation.
