Running counter to what many have learned in the workplace, it is okay to love what you do and in what you do, love.
Internal desire is purpose. External desire is an intended impact; what you intend for this purpose in the world. Desire flows toward desire. When purpose connects with action, focus and courage meet in the present. The balance created by the encounter with focus and courage illuminates a narrative meaning ever-present as your actions consistently become the living expression of your story.
Flow describes the result of being courageously focused in the present as you open to the unfolding that is part of living and giving in this world. To apply love in work you love, you must do the work. You must fight the resistance – every form of distraction that is an assault on your brand of love; your work.
Intent flows to commitment. Listen to true intent as it clears a path for your purpose and tells you great things about who you are at your core. In the clarity of your Desire & Intent, you stand confidently and extend your reach in the world.
In effect, if we can see the path ahead laid out for us, there is a good chance it is not our path; it is probably someone else’s we have substituted for our own. Our own path must be deciphered every step of the way … Soul loves the journey itself.” −David Whyte in The Heart Aroused
