#1238 Q: Do You Pray?

A: Every Second of My Life

In our last +1, we invited Robert Greene, Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, and Stephen Cope to the party as we celebrated Anders Olsson’s hero’s journey.

I mentioned the fact that I reread our Notes on each of their GREAT (!) books: Robert Greene’s Mastery, Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi’s Creativity, and Stephen Cope’s The Great Work of Your Life.

(One more time: WOW. Those are PACKED with some inspiring destiny-wisdom.)

I smiled as I read this quote from Stephen Cope’s book—reflecting on the ALL IN commitment demonstrated by one of his dharma-exemplars: Susan B. Anthony.

“When she was once asked, ‘Do you pray?’ she responded, ‘I pray every second of my life; not on my knees but with my work. My prayer is to lift women to equality with men. Work and worship are one with me.’”

That’s Today’s +1.

When asked: “Do you pray?”

Let’s answer with: “Every second of my life.”
