Listening to Obama speak inspires me. I think we all have an instinct when it comes to recognizing goodness in others. This man speaks with a full heart. How can we tell? We can feel it in our bodies as we listen. We respond in a quiet awe and feel compelled to open ourselves to his message.
His words are not from his head, although he is clearly intelligent. His words have depth and resonance and meaning. They seem to ring out from a place of passion and truth. This is truly a model of transformational speaking.
As he is delivering his message, he is reflective and tapping into his soul. As he speaks, he leads us into our own inner being and connects us to our soul. We become one. We are moved to respond, to act and to live in harmony for the good of all.
