Myself being someone that strongly believes in taking opportunities to be of service to others-- the statement by the author about the motivation , gave me pause. As I reflect on where my own motivation originates to join service clubs and donate my time as well as money, I realize it's because growing up as an immigrant in the US, I know how much it would have meant to our family and what a difference it would have made. To give of yourself to help another, makes such a tremendous impact. So I ask, does it really matter where the motivation originates? Because the impact is what resonates out into the world.
I see this insight as making the case for Synergy being in itself the greatest manifestation of feeling powerful because you are aware of your own power and move in concert with that which you draw motivation /power from...to act as a system and yet know your place and importance within that system. This is a beautiful insight, thank you.
