This year’s fall colors have been resplendent, prompting renewed gratitude for my many blessings. The reds, oranges and yellows, punctuated by an occasional green pine exclamation point, also bring to mind the season of this man’s life.

I have just retired from a major piece of my coaching work, and there is more time to devote to the tasks of this decade. Readings from my astrologer and numerologist reinforce that this time of life will focus on introspection and spiritual awakening. It is not that I have been asleep in these matters all my life, but that there will be a new embrace of them and deepening engagement and appreciation.

A meditation reading on my birthday last week provided a succinct summary of this season’s call to action: cultivate loving kindness, do no harm, tame the mind. *  Among the pillars of Buddhist teaching, they resonate profoundly. Going forward, may they be in service not only to this pilgrim but to all who experience their rich colors in the landscape of their own journeys.

Welcome to Sacred Lead.  The two words give you a clue where we’re headed.  Something sacred is set apart with special meaning.  It could be religious, spiritual or metaphysical.  It could be simply what we value most.  It is worthy of our deepest respect.

Lead has several meanings.  I have been in leadership roles all my life, but the idea for this blog began with my introduction to equine work.  The “rope” connecting a human and a horse is called a lead.  For me it represents a sacred link that aligns two beings in mutual trust and respect.

In the broader sense, to lead means to have a vision and inspire others to move toward its fruition.  As an executive coach I work with many leaders who are intent upon transforming the lives of their clients, their colleagues and themselves.

Going forward we’ll explore a variety of topics related to inspiration, spirituality, leadership and service.  What are some of the topics you would like to read about or discuss?
