Blog: The Nature of Being Organized
Organizing From The Inside Out
We are spiritual beings having a human experience. We are by nature joyful, peaceful, loving, compassionate, and giving. We really don't have to work at these qualities at all. They are constantly present—24/7. Then why don't we feel this way all the time?
As human beings we tend to look outwardly and our "inner life" loses its priority. Our focus is on other people, work, home, friends, material desires or education. Now these are not "bad", in fact, they make life wonderful and become our "teachers" for personal growth. It is through these life experiences that we learn patience, compassion, joy, and gratitude. How wonderful is that?
Imagine for a moment what our human experience would be like if we started from the inside and worked out. Just a thought….
Now imagine what our organizing projects would be like if we started first from a place of peace, gratitude, compassion, non-judgment and joy. Imagine stepping into the spiritual quality of giving and then beginning our organizing project. Hmmmm…. My guess is there would be a very different outcome, not to mention, a very different experience of organizing.
Try it on and let me know what happens, OK?
Love To You,
