I propose at the OccupyRaleigh GA tonight, that we make the rest of the Month of March, “Look-for-the-Good” in one another… month.
Lets look for each others strengths, intentions, what we can genuinely admire. Then, speak it to them. Affirm them. Ancient wisdom says, never underestimate our human need for affirmation.
This is not about our accomplishments or failures or mistakes. And this is much different than a compliment.
This is a genuine acknowledgement, of a brother or sister’s unique value… so diverse and precious, each in our own ways.
I can find it in another in the power of silence, the leadership of tenacity, the contagiousness of kindness, the calming of stillness, the passion of music, the reassurance of dependability, the healing of listening…..
We are a community of strangers, who come together in an important common cause. Lets keep finding what’s common and affirm it. One that will test us over and over again. It is challenging and honing our best attributes of humanity, courage, and selflessness. We hold up a mirror to one another, as our society holds up a mirror to us and we to them. And so we learn and grow and shine our light.
If we are to soon usher-in an American Spring, we must ready ourselves!
Please add your thoughts. I’m hoping for lively discourse about this at the GA.
