In Remembering Zeal, I shared…
“Pursuing our own vision of Excellence starts with getting so tastably clear on why it all matters. We need taste it, palpably so to find our Zeal and deal with the tiredness that comes from us not seeing it. Going honest and true… getting courageously clear on what and who matters most. There we find mission and meaning. There we find passion and purpose. There, we remember our Zeal. For the Fallen, we Rise.”
There was a lot in that post and I humbly and sincerely suggest the read and reflect. That said, and this week, my head and heart turn to Charity and Generosity.
I suggest that there is an intelligence to their practice. Kindness and Empathy matter. It matters to others and it matters to ourselves. And there is Science to support. As I walk my purpose with Zeal, I am reminded that Charity and Generosity matter… vitally so. They matter in their Sincerity of practice.
They matter to my own wellness and to that of others. They matter to you and your others. They are a spirit, countenance and gate that results in daily actions guided thusly. I am reminded this day of how vital that is.
Reflect on these virtues of Charity and Generosity. Know that they are an intelligence in and of themselves. So, maybe it is time for a new understanding and practice of CGI…. just be and be just.
Peace, passion and prosperity…
