Delighting in the essence of essence

Essence is such a beautiful word.

Just listen to its tone and revel in its colour

And its multiple dimensions of meaning create a glorious kaleidoscope:

  1. The intrinsic nature or indispensable quality of something, especially something abstract, which determines its character.
  2. A property or group of properties of something without which it would not exist or be what it is.
  3. An extract or concentrate from a plant or other matter and used for flavouring or scent.

I’ve been thinking about essence in terms of who we are and the beautiful change we want to create.

What brings you alive?

And what is the irreducible you that sums up your heart and soul?
