“A hunter that is worth his salt does not catch game because he sets his traps, or because he knows the hunting routines of his prey, but because he himself has no routines. This is his advantage. He is not at all like the animals he is after, fixed by heavy routines and predictable quirks; he is free, fluid, unpredictable.”

Charles Eisenstein: Receive a Vision


“We must learn to see the world through the eyes of the gift …

it is not ours to decide what is true or possible. Some teachings ask us to start by creating a vision, but this is mistaken; the proper way to start is to receive a vision … The second step is to heal the wounds and doubts that that vision illuminates … The third step is to bow into service to that which wants to be born …

… A leader is the holder of a story, someone whose experience of its reality is deep enough so that she can hold the belief on behalf of others …

The deeper our service to that which wants to be born, the more it is able to arrange the synchronistic encounters and fortuitous events that allow us to accomplish that which lies beyond our understanding …

This whole process of cocreating change starts not with faith but with honesty… to believe in a true vision that contradicts the consensus view of what is possible or worthwhile … To trust a moment of clarity and carry it forward, to translate it into belief and act from it amid all the voices that say it is crazy or impossible, is no trivial matter.”
