How has the quality of your creativity been lately? How about the quality of life in general? I heard a statement yesterday that caught me by surprise.
I had the privilege of hearing Asha Chaudhary speak, Visionary and President of Jaipur Rugs. She shared at Plywood Presents, a conference for creatives and innovators. Jaipur Rugs is India’s largest hand-knotted rug manufacturer. In a Q and A session, Asha said that the highest quality wool in the world came from New Zealand. She said, “The higher the altitude, the better the raw materials.”
I was awestruck because I immediately asked myself, “How is my altitude?” For me this means how well am I doing at surrendering? At trusting? At looking up? At living by faith? At keeping things in perspective? Then I thought, “How are my raw materials doing?” How are my levels of creativity and innovation? Mental and physical input and output? How about relationships, ideas, service to others, loving others? And I realized the higher my altitude, the better the raw materials. Wow. It was a great moment.
I’d love to hear your thoughts. Have a great weekend, and may your “altitude” and “raw materials” prosper! Grace and Peace…
