Thursday, July 19th, 2012 Focus: I activate my sense of purpose and discover strengths I didn’t know I had.

Since we each look out onto a different corner of the planet and bring with us our own particular portfolio of interests, skills, and experience, we are touched by different concerns and called to respond in different ways.

When we become aware of an emergency and rise to the occasion, something powerful gets switched on inside us. We activate our sense of purpose and discover strengths we didn’t even know we had.

Being able to make a difference is powerfully enlivening; it makes our lives feel more worthwhile. We not only give but we receive in so many ways as well. The approach is not about being dutiful or worthy so much as it is about stepping into a state of aliveness that makes our lives profoundly satisfying.

Excerpted from: Active Hope: Becoming An Active Participant in Creating the World We Desire by Joanna Macy & Chris Johnstone.
