This is the need of the time. HUGE thinking. Life is not content anymore with mere bigness. The demand today is far greater.
Every quarter of our precious world is calling to us. So many threats to our planet, to our food, to our life. Countless species teetering. Future generations line up outside our door to see if we will answer.
We have no instruction manual, no role model or reference point in our long history to tell us what to do.
Nevertheless we say Yes! We cast aside small cramped thinking and leap into that greater role that has been waiting to serve us.
Then comes magic.
As we outstretch our arms to hold the HUGENESS of the world, we at once become held by it. As we seek to lead, we are mysteriously guided. As we draw out the depths of our energy and courage, we become lifted by a greater power, imbued with wisdom and patience.
What seemed insurmountable becomes inevitable.
What seemed oppressive becomes our honor and privilege to unwind.
And our lives, which appeared to us as mere waves, become the ocean.
It's time to THINK HUGE. Grace will follow.
