“Wisdom reflects a capacity for sound judgment, discernment, and the objectivity to see what is needed in the moment. Collective wisdom reflects a similar capacity to learn together and evolve toward something greater and wiser than what we can do as individuals alone. This book emerges from a deep conviction that we have a stake in each other and that what binds us together is greater than what drives us apart.”
How fitting it is that on the day after the 44th President of the United States, Barack Obama, was re-elected for another term, I send my 44th message in my quest to reflect and share during my 100 days of wisdom! I’m taking a few liberties as I am a few days behind in scheduling and #44 was “technically” planned for November 2nd. But who’s counting (other than me, of course).
Although I usually focus on the wisdom we can receive from Spirit within, today I focus on the wisdom of collective action; when people gather and share a common intention and action for a common good. When a group, however similar or diverse, puts the good of their community above their individual pursuits. When individuals come together to share their time, talents and treasures for a common purpose and benefit by harnessing the strength and wisdom found only in collective action.

For those who feel unloved or unworthy of love, this essential truth of all creation can actually feel completely foreign, unrealistic or flat-out wrong. But it’s true. The spirit and energy of Love is within you. In fact, it is you. And me too. Continue reading →
