Leadership and Spirit
by DW Green — March 21, 2018
I’d like to acknowledge Adam for his incredible blog posts. His topics are always interesting, informative and relevant. He has a real gift of expressing his thoughts in a simple and easy-to-understand way with the ever present, comfortable undercurrent of humor. So, thank you Adam for your contribution to myself and readers of our weekly blog.
On the other hand, I tend to get caught up in the less fashionable world of Self. Of Spirit. Each morning I spend 30 minutes in mediation. I end that time of silent reflection with a short prayer. A line from that prayer is “I dedicate my life to the service of God.” What does that mean? God is an imposing, intimidating, concept. To me, serving God means serving Life in all of its expressions…people, plants, animals, bugs, insects, trees, flowers, rocks, dirt, seashells, the universe! Well, it means to be of service to everything (including ourselves).
I often share words of writers who are more articulate and expressive on the topic of Self than I am. In his weekly blog, my favorite leadership writer, Scott Mabry, writes the following, entitled A Minimalist Leadership Post (60 Words).
