Perspectives on Enthusiasm!
Awakening to Enthusiasm!
I read quite a bit and always enjoy when I come across other perspectives, in general, and especially with the topic of enthusiasm. Such was the case when reading the daily message a few days ago in The Book of Awakening by Mark Nepo. According to Mark,
"...enthusiasm is not a mood that can be willed or forced. Rather, it is a ripple that follows the stone. It can only be felt after we immerse oursleves in life."
How true this is. This is one reason why so many write and speak about how important it is to be fully present Here Now. This is also why I frequently write about and ask you, clients, colleagues, family and friends where your focus is...on the past, present or future; on what is or what is not...
In the same passage, Mark also goes on to say,
"...In recurring humility, our enthusiasm, our momentary oneness with the energy of the Universe, is the sound of God moving through the harp of the soul."
This is such a great insight, especially if you have ever heard the beautiful, sweet music of the harp.
Now is as good a time as any to allow the music that is in you to be felt and heard.
