Positivism or positive psychology?
The words sound so similar yet have almost the opposite meanings. This is the difference.
I’ll believe it when I see it or I will see it when I believe it.
I’ve been familiar with the Desiderata since I was a child (it was popularised by a pop singer in the sixties, wasn’t it?) and I have just re-read it.
Now I read the poetry of David Whyte, Otto Scharmer’s work on presencing, ideas of emergence behind The Legend of Bagger Vance, I see and hear a lot more in this well-quoted poem.
