Genuine Joy from enhancing life (Marshall Rosenberg)
- "Infact, when we do things
solely in the spirit of enhancing life
(rather than for approval from others),
we will find others appreciating us.
The appreciation, however,
is only a feedback mechanism
confirming that our efforts
had the intended effect.
that we have chosen
to use our power
to serve life
and have done so successfully
brings us the genuine joy
of celebrating ourselves
in a way that approval from others
can never offer."
