SOUL, MEANING, PURPOSE AND STORY - INTERTWINED
When inventors and creative thinkers give us an insight into the ways that they think, it is clear that the role of generalization, if it is at all significant, is subservient to metaphor, inspiration, imagination, and even dream - Gary Thomas (Doing Case Study: Abduction not Induction, Phronesis not Theory)
Deep within the human spirit, now severed from its ancient moorings, there is a search unfolding - JOHN WELWOOD (American integrative psychologist)
There is something more vast than joy that exists. I felt it once, my whole being became soul - Rumi
The greatest human quest is to know what one must do in order to become a human being – Immanual Kant (18th Century German philosopher)
We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality (and) whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly – Martin Luther King
Our supreme purpose in life is not to make a fortune, nor to pursue pleasure, nor to write our name on history, but to discover this spark of the divine that is in our hearts. —Eknath Easwaran
A very small degree of hope is sufficient to cause the birth of love STENDHAL (19th Century French author)
Professor David Boje sees storytelling as the currency of organizations. For him, the exchange of stories among people reflects the true nature of social systems, revealing their intrinsic values, culture, and the nature of their operations. When we collect stories, we can get at the underlying principles of operation within any social system - Tonya Henderson & Marcella Bremer, Editor, LeadershipandChangeMagazine
Whatever your story, you are more than that story - Rumi
