I’m really passionate about Energy Leadership, and in many cases, my view of the situations, movies, books, people are affected by it. I feel the Energy.
And I want to share with you a great conversation of Oprah and Gary Zukav. Oprah was telling her story that she read Gary’s book “Seat of the soul” and everything that happened since is a result of the clarity of intention. This is the effect of the book, and particularly one sentence for her and many people benefiting from it.
What is the sentence?
“Every action thought and a feeling is motivated by an intention. And that intention is a cause that exists as one with an effect. You can’t participate in the cause without participating in the effect. What goes out is always coming back… The intention is going to determine what the effect is”. That’s changed Oprah’s life.
“Intention is a motivation, it is the reason for doing what you’re doing, it is an energy that infuses the deed or the word. And if you go deep, drill down into your intention, you’ll get to a bedrock bottom place where there are only two intentions, love, and fear. To contribute, to give the gifts that you were born to give are the intentions of love, the rest is coming from fear. The intention that really produces results is the intention of love.” Deep, powerful thoughts! And it goes much deeper in their dialog, and in the book (on my reading list now).
At the end of their conversation, Gary is talking about US leadership nowadays. And we can apply it to other countries… And his view is really different from “kitchen talks” on non-proper actions of our politicians...
“If you hate those who hate, you step into the darkness with them. If you have no compassion for those who have no compassion, what’s the difference between you and them? So, the only way to change the world is to change yourself.”
Not easy… Not common… Not well perceived by the society… But it is very close to my heart. Would be interesting to hear your thoughts on this last idea…
