Enlightening

Last night I was reading some poetry about stories. 
“…and it will change you in the telling, 
and others in the listening.” 

It is becoming
more apparent
to me
that as much as
I love
reading
and learning
and writing
and reflecting
those activities mainly
keep my thoughts
focused inwards. 
I’m realizing that
for me
it is the sharing
of new wisdom
not the learning
of wisdom
that is the enlightening bit. 

Maybe
this is why
I am so enlivened
by 1:1 coaching, 
and why
every client call
feels like
pure magic
because people
are experiencing
enlightenment
in front of my eyes
as they share
with me
their wisdom.
