The power of empowerment
In this video, we explore how to see others in a way that brings forth their most defining human trait: their innate ability to create. As a magpie is meant to fly and a dolphin to swim, as human beings, we are meant to create.
Simply put, creativity is the way that the life-force energy is expressed through us. ALL OF US!!!
When you make it a practice of seeing EVERYBODY as a fellow creator, you begin to unlock the full potential of everyone around you, including your teammates, your boss, your coworkers, your significant other, your children, your parents, your neighbors, your physician, the checker at you local grocery store, your auto mechanic, the person you’ll never know personally but whom you just passed in the street.
When you empower others as creators, you do us all a profound and meaningful service. You actively begin to elevate us as a species, a species that holds in its power the ability to either destroy this place we inhabit, or to bring forth its innate vitality.
When you empower others as creators, not only to you bring for their human-ness, you bring forth their humanity!
