“If you really knew how beautiful you are, you would fall at your own feet” – Byron Katie
Working with some organizations, people and communities these days that are going through hard times. Not everyone is dealing with it very well. There is sniping and infighting and distrust and alarm. The narcissism of small difference.
But as a consultant that comes and goes with these organizations, I am continually struck by the latent resourcefulness and beauty that lies within the people and the groups I work with. Sometimes I think that my job is just to help groups see themselves, see their raw beauty, their power and potential in a way that is useful.
The quote above is on my partner’s website. I used it today with a client who holds the deep architecture of her organization, and who does her work in an atmosphere that doesn’t often see what it offers. It’s a gift to be seen, and a gift to have the perspective to see.
