Thanks, Jack. Want to use a piece of this for a daily reflection.

Well said!  I think it is important to explore what we have to add to these
insights (Senge, Wheatley, Covey etc.).  As I prepare to do the TLL tomorrow
I have spent some time with Covey's 8th Habit which I find quite good.  He
covers a lot of what I think is right on target regarding transformation,
personal mastery etc.  I intend to draw a lot from his insights in the first

But I think we (the Order) have a lot to add that is not fully appreciated
or understood.  Things like Contradictional Thinking (the gift of life is in
the situation and nowhere else), Maneuvers (bringing Spirit into all
action), Charting/4X4 etc. (trans-rational understanding of life)
Knowing/Doing/Being (the three universal dimensions of life), Transparency
(means of revealing the OW in the midst of TW),  Profound Humanness (the
life-giving presence of incarnation).  There are dozens  more we have
learned (and somewhat
mastered) that you won't find in most of the contemporary gurus of
transformation.  Transmitting, demonstrating and nurturing these into  
the passionate vocated one's of this earth is one hell of a mission.   
At least it is for me and I hope others will want to work on giving that
form.  And that form not only has to be well thought through, it  
has to be elegantly designed and then creatively shared.   I can't  
wait to shift to doing this work full time, which is what I intend to do
when we leave India at the end of November.



PS If you haven't gotten the DVD from George Walters on Joe's talks from the
Faith and Life Community do so and listen to his talk on  
"The New Middle Ages".   Profound and still right on target.  The  
only change is that now we MUST get this job done soon as we don't have much
time until irreversible change occurs.
