Skillfully Generous – Voice (Freed from Within)

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!

In this whirling 21st Century the individual needs to embrace the authentic self and confidently leverage the energy and power found there. As we entered the 21st Century, I became more concerned about what leaders like you needed for successful influence and personal fulfillment. As we move deeper into this challenging 21st Century, I’m more convinced than ever that the core of my work is in helping individual leaders remember who they are − a trueness. It is about confidence found in your authenticity.

  1. Thank you, Jeff, for mentioning IMPROV WISDOM as you pass on this advice. I do think that our capacity for generosity is a muscle that gets stronger as we do small things that benefit others. It’s an important topic.

    • Patricia, thank you for your comment! … and for reading. Your book, “Improv Wisdom,” is wonderful. It is well worth those years you spent paying attention and writing! I don’t just read good books like yours, I study them. And then I share what I’m learning as I add to my practice what good writers like you so freely give. Just today, I shared a very brief summary of your work with 21 select executives that I have coached in my leadership coaching programs. Thank you again!
