I write about generosity in order to become more internally aware of the core source of such action in the world around me. As I compose my inner thoughts into outer articulation I find myself more skillfully and simply paying attention.
“I love to tell people that the opposite of contemplation is not action−it is reaction. Early and quick reaction is almost always egocentric and self-referential.” −Richard Rohr, Immortal Diamond
When confused over precisely what generosity might be needed in any situation, take note of a suggestion from Patricia Ryan Madson. In her book, Improv Wisdom, she shares a learned principle of active awareness: If you see something that needs to be done and you are able to do it, then take action.
The generosity needed in a desperate 21st Century cries out for your Trueness in the flow.
Voice resonates only in the flow of love. Not every voice is identified by the word love, but every voice identified from the true self is an individual’s unique flow of love into this world.
It is not presumptuous to assume the world needs your voice. In fact, your voice fully resonant in the flow is fundamental to any and all hope of collaborating in a 21st Century filled with distraction.
Voice named and freed is your foundation for skillfully directed generosity. From this internally based freedom you courageously pay attention to what unfolds in the territory of outer accountability.
In full voice, conscious and active, you live a true life in the stand you have chosen; a work and love that have chosen you!
