Do the Work of a Master
In the early evening, the natural light is just so that a photograph taken by a master will be stunning in its beauty. Every photon and atom aligns to make what might have been lovely or dramatic become even more. It’s the power of talent, skill, energy, and a giving up of oneself to the work.
When we do something with whispering passion the universe responds.
We see it in the church that isn’t our own that makes us feel still, as if we know something holy. We hear it in the unfamiliar music that brings us home. We feel it in the fabric so well woven that it feels like a child’s face when she’s smiling. We smell it, taste it, days after a fine meal has been shared.
Human hearts, human thoughts, and human hands consume themselves to make something of integrity and love. If we start with the integrity and the love, the rest comes without a glance. It becomes just what we do. We breathe the difference into life.
It’s extraordinary — extraordinarily human.
When we hurt, when we laugh, when we win, lose, or learn something we never knew, we look for each other. We look for what only another person can add.
We change the world just by being. Imagine what happens when we do what we’re meant to do.
It’s not ordinary.
Nothing human is ordinary.
Find the extraordinary in you.
