Love sees thousands of markets

The intellect saw a market and started to haggle; Love saw thousands of markets beyond that market. ~ Rumi

One of the programs I deliver, Plan & Let Go, was created several years ago.  I revamped it late last year, balancing it out with what I felt was important from a spiritual perspective and adding the Seven Success Practices of Love-is-the-Bottom-Line.

It took me a while to be in the reality that there was a huge gap in the material regarding Social Media –a gap that could not be ignored.  I set off on a trek to research the subject (and wrote about it here over the course of several weeks).

What began as a simple inquiry, soon proved to be a profound lesson.

While exploring the subject, my MBA self started to get really excited and see the profit opportunity available in this growing realm.  The universe picked up on the excitement and soon a good friend (OK, so she may have been reading my blog) contacted me to see if I would be interested in exploring the possibility of delivering Social Media Consulting.  She had the networks plus an amazing tech consultant to add to the mix –cool.

Over the next three weeks we met, talked and explored.  My ego rapidly took over.  There was good money, good clients and kudos available.  I was so honored to be in the company of these two amazing women, and not wanting to rock the boat, I never once brought up creating our venture from a Love-is-the-Bottom-Line perspective.

I began to wonder if I should stop focusing on my current work. Immediately an anxiety came up that thankfully had me stop, think, touch base with my coach (check her out!) and get back to the core.   The next day was amazing and it all came together.

I had a Plan & Let Go session with a client in the a.m. –we met at the Houston Arboretum – we walked, planned, and picked up stones to anchor it in.  I loved it and practically skipped away — clear I was not giving that up!  Later, knowing I would have to be up-front about where I was at, I met the forming Social Media group in a beautiful Zen condo – we ate chicken salad and watched the most recent PBS Frontline program on Digital_Nation…….we did not know it when we sat down, but the program had a huge focus on the dangers of Social Media.

Once the program was over, I experienced a profound energetic shift and the possibility of “why” we had come together was brought forth.  We sat in silence for a few moments and looked at each other.  Our discussion immediately took a different direction from where we had been headed. We ended up leaving with action items to explore a balanced plugged and unplugged Social Media support group.  A project that would make money AND make a difference for people –a Love-is-the-Bottom-Line project!

That evening, I shared with my husband the events of the day. “He ended up stating the most fundamental question –one everyone should ask themselves – “Is your business / career / project forwarding your spiritual ascension, or is it holding you back in distraction and ego?”

Can you see thru the eye of love into thousands of markets –markets that go beyond immediate tangibility and add to your spiritual ascension?  Can you let go or tweak projects as soon as you recognize a blinding aspect?

    I loved the post and especially the question that anchored it “Is your business / career / project forwarding your spiritual ascension, or is it holding you back in distraction and ego?” That is something I am constantly asking myself. I’d also like to know more about love and your social media approach?

    Hi Judith ~ I certainly think of you as someone who would constantly be asking yourself that question — it is a good one isn’t it. I will keep you posted on the love and social media project!
