“I abandoned the bird’s-eye view that lets you see everything from above, from the sky. I assumed a worm’s-eye view, trying to find whatever comes right in front of you–smell it, touch it, see if you can do something about it.” – Muhammad Yunus, founder of the Grameen Bank–a unique organization established for the sole purpose of extending microcredit to the poorest of the poor in Bangladesh.
Soon as I read that, I gained an understanding of what I’ve been seeing, and where I’m being lead, in order to see more.
As for me, the act of abandoning one point of view for the other, is unnecessary.The idea is to really see, from wherever I am.Sometimes above from the sky.
Sometimes below in the mud.
What are you seeing today, right where you are? Are you seeing that your very presence in your present circumstances, can make a difference to those around you?
Love is not blind. Love sees… and sees what love (you) can do about it.
And sometimes, it is not so much a matter of doing, but a matter of being. Just be present. Be there. Be aware… remember them in prayer.Could it be, you are right where you are, to be Love in the midst of a raging storm?
“Fear less, hope more; Eat less, chew more; Whine less, breathe more; Talk less, say more; Love more, and all good things will be yours.”- Swedish Proverb
