As stated in the beginning of this blog, over time there will be a series of posts entitled "Definitions". I believe through a more extensive study of words we can learn to have better communication and a more common understanding.
Here is a word that you may have heard many times, but may have never truly understood it from its root. We may know its usage in ways such as "She walked with great enthusiasm into the classroom." In this way we may see her as walking in excited, or happy, eager, or with a great interest, but I want to look further into the root . . .
Above you may see that the "thu" in enthusiasm derives from the Greek word "theos" meaning God. And the "en" means "in". So in actuality the "enthus" means "IN GOD". So what if we looked at the above sentence again and saw it as she walked in such an ecstatic way, because she was living in God? . . . Now if we did it that way, the sentence has a whole new depth.
When we are asked by people to join them in tasks and it is done with enthusiasm this person's vibrating joy many times seems to come into us and inspire us to enter them in this mission. It is this great joy and fervor, despite what difficulties lie ahead that help engage teams in the work that will lead towards achieving a goal . . . What if we all lived with "enthusiasm" towards all of our daily tasks and duties? If you want to live this way and Be The Symbol, please join me in this prayer.
Lord God, Heavenly Father,
Help me to live completely in you.
To serve you. To please you by being united with you at all times.
When I go places, whether it be simple things as to the supermarket, or to school or work, may I always see you.
Even if those around me are corrupt, or I am in a place where much evil or wrongdoing is committed, may I walk with an enthusiasm that shatters the walls of darkness and brings greater light.
Oh great Spirit of #LOVE . . . Oh great Spirit of charity, and goodness I beg of you to transform me into your humble tool, bringing the everlasting peace that lives truly only when in you.
- All is Love
