hootlessness
 n.— «We also gravitate from win-lose to win-win. We are attracted to goals and actions that are for our own highest and best good, and for the highest and best good of everyone—including the planet as a whole. Lester Levenson, the originator of The Sedona Method, called this “hootlessness.” He coined that phrase because he recommended that we release about our goals until we “don ´t give a hoot” whether we achieve them or not. Hootlessness is true acceptance, and this is the most powerful place from which to create.» —“The Sedona Method brings together The Secret and A New Earth” by Corinne Casazza American Chronicle Apr. 2, 2008.
