THEME FOR 10/8: DISCERNMENT
It has been said that if you do what you love, you’ll never work a day in your life. While I appreciate the sentiment behind this, I actually think this notion is a trap and I’m afraid I’ve been falling into a bit these days. The truth is, realizing your potential does take work. And “doing what you love” does not always “pay off” – especially in the context of what bell hooks calls the white supremacist, capitalist patriarchy.
Doing what you love takes commitment, devotion, and discernment. Discernment
is a process of deep and intentional listening, toward the end of receiving clarity about a particular question. The question can be anything of significance. (Go here to see the whole post.)
Don’t forget I have a number of upcoming offerings designed to help support the work of deep listening and deep commitment for the long haul.
It’s all here. Check it out.
