In the late ?50's, folk legend Pete Seeger penned an important song of purpose and renewal based on the Old Testament book of Ecclesiastes, called "Turn! Turn! Turn! (to Everything There is a Season)". The song's popularity skyrocketed in 1965 when the version covered by The Byrds went to #1 on the charts. If you are of a certain age, I'll bet even this reminder of the song brings a smile to your face. It does mine. It's an important message, rooted in the deepest wisdom from nature, reminding us that every act, and every season can, and does serve a valuable and needed purpose. Allow yourself a moment of grace from your multi-tasked life and consider wisdom from the seasons: · Spring-the season of possibility, creativity and hope; a time of renewed energy, to draw on the lessons and resources from the previous year to plant new ideas. · Summer-the season of growth in a fertile environment; the time for aggressive initiatives and energies. · Autumn-the season of quiet and reflection, whose gift is to allow us to look at our choices and be open to learning in a way that will show up in our actions of subsequent Springs and Summers. · Winter-the season of rest, renewal and recovery; the time of healing, restoration and deepening our roots in that which sustains us. "To everything, there is a season and a time to every purpose under heaven." Do you give yourself, and those around you, the important gift of the wisdom of the seasons? Read more | 0 Comments
Were you one of the millions dazzled by the original Cosmos? Back in 1980, the late, great Carl Sagan took us on a journey through space and time, black holes and molecules. Recently, a marvelous reboot of Cosmos, hosted by astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, reintroduced a new generation to the wonders of science, the universe...and wonder. Wonder. Awe. They're among the most primal, elevating human emotions. When we're kids, we have them in spades. We're easily stopped short by everything from a bloom of Fourth of July fireworks to a firefly in a jar. It's easy to take our breath away and make us stop and ask: Why? How? What if? School, adulthood and responsibility replace our wonder with a seen-it-all cynicism. Worse, in the Age of the Internet we think we really have seen it all. That does more than rob us of the capacity to be amazed and overjoyed by the humble. It shuts off our ability to live in the moment and to see the people around us in all their glory. Each of us is a form of magic. If we want to inspire each other to dream and create, perhaps part of our organizational strategy should be rekindling wonder. Go and binge-watch the new Cosmos on NetFlix. Better yet, go outside on a clear, moonless night and look at the stars. Really look. Be present, like a child. Ask "Why?" I think you'll find that wonder is still there, just beneath the surface, waiting to awaken. How do you cultivate wonder for your people? Read more | 0 Comments
