Peter Senge, when conducting a workshop here in D.C. this summer used the
words Love and Truth to describe "creative tension." In other words,
developing a shared vision of the desired future taps into aspiration and
what people love. An honest appraisal of current reality is telling and
sharing the truth about what is going on. He also pointed out that because
of the anxiety the tension creates we often compromise our vision and/or
deny the truth about current reality.

what he did, Gandhi replied that it was with Love and Truth - Satyagraha.
Love and truth are practical applications, not just abstract principles.
