'Energy flows where attention goes. Let us pray that more and more energy and attention goes towards promoting grace in the world. Jan and Peter's book offers us a guidepost on the way.' JUDITH DELOZIER What determines the art of living? In reflecting on how to approach the notion of 'art', Gregory Bateson suggested waiting 'until we get to the core of the problem of pattern meets pattern'. When Performance Meets Alignment helps us ripen and reach into the core of what happens in the meeting of pattern with pattern, as we change, learn, and grow. Life skills, such as attentiveness, reflection, discernment, and commitment, sustain the necessary energy and purity to be both present and engaged in the world with all our potential and humanity. They provide pointers to a life well lived, whether we are among those who help others fulfill their potential or are more concerned with realizing our own.
