Some Kiss We Want ~ Rumi

Originally uploaded by LukeOlsen

There is some kiss we want with our whole lives, the touch of spirit on the body. Seawater

begs the pearl to break its shell. And the lilly, how passionately it needs some wild darling! At

night, I open the window and ask
the moon to come and press its face against mine. Breath into

me. Close the language-door and open the love-window. The moon won’t use the door, only the window.

At the Twilight ~ Rumi

Top 10 Reasons to Embark on a Planning Journey


Walking into the unknown

Originally uploaded by clickiloz

It used to be that business planning fundamentally was about designing linear steps between a a current situation and a chosen future. There are as many reasons why this idea seems ridiculous in today’s world as there are numerous non-linear way’s to live into a chosen future.

So why even do any planning?

You still need a plan to design the structure for business transactions to occur in and prosperity to flow into, but planning today has very little to do with a known destination. Planning today is about an exciting, powerful journey in and of itself. Evolving business planning concepts teach us to proactively interweave action and deep attention. Planning becomes about learning to open the business door and the love window at the same time.

Top 10 reasons to embark on a planning journey:

1. To allow you to access how powerful you are and to get to your true “highest-self” desires.

2. To communicate to others who may want to participate with you (as investors, lenders, partners, etc.) what your business is about and where it is going.

3. To create a structure that holds the flow of prosperity and leverages flood.

4. To design a tangible framework in which you invite spirit to co-create with you.

5. To encourage you to ask yourself and others the right questions –right questions include hard questions.

6. To get you to a place where, as much as possible, you are operating from love and projecting out the expansion of love.

7. To give you the “now” of the day-to-day tending of the business of your business, by getting ideas out of your head and “onto paper”.

8. To have you participate in a consciousness re-creation of “how business is done”.

9. To learn how to powerfully negotiate the integrated space between the tangible, material world and the intangible, invisible world.

10. To serve as a guide for the lifetime of your business by providing guideposts and tools to analyze growth, as well as exit points.

Whether you “end up” with a formalized business plan for financing or 5-sheets of handwritten notes, embarking on the journey of attention-action planning is a conscious choice to step into the reality of the vast unknown.

Looking into the Creek ~ Rumi

Originally uploaded by wild prairie man

The way the soul is with the senses and the intellect is like a creek. When desire weeds

grow thick, intelligence can’t flow, and soul creatures stay hidden. But sometimes

the reasonable clarity runs so strong it sweeps the clogged stream open. No longer weeping

and frustrated, your being grows as powerful as your wantings were before, more so. Laughing

and satisfied, the masterful flow lets creations of the soul appear. You look

down, and…the gates made of light swing open. You see in.

Floating, Flooding, Ever-Budding

Pic originally uploaded by adventurocity

The idea that planning can be designed and implemented in a linear fashion is a set-up for frustration. Once you start the force of planning or implementing a phase of an existing plan, fresh forces will come into play with which adjustment has to be made. Whether business starts pouring in, your staff or life partner starts to sabotage, or the economy busts –fresh forces there will be.

The good news is that this is natural. Einstein stated that force never moves in a straight line, but in a curve that eventually returns from where it came and in a higher arc, because the universe has progressed since it started. You can count on the curve of the force returning –the key is counting on the new factors that occur at the higher arc level. Plan on stabilizing and harnessing these factors.

“There is a tide in the affairs of men which taken at the flood leads to fortune.” ~Shakespeare

There is a stage of business informally known as flood –this is when everything starts to work and come together –the arc of your planning returns. It can seem overwhelming because with the flood comes debris –the new factors. You can float when you routinely plan to revisit your key business success factors and proactively stabilize them. Incorporating a holistic system of measurement and communication will help to navigate the flood and turn debris into assets.

Keep forcefully planning! Every phase of evolution commences by being in a state of unstable force and proceeds through organization to equilibrium. Equilibrium having been achieved, no further development is possible without once more oversetting the stability and passing though a phase of contending forces. As a friend of mine once said, it is about “floating, flooding, and ever-budding”.

That Moon Language ~ Hafiz

Admit something:

Everyone you see, you say to them, “Love me.”

Of course you do not do this out loud, otherwise someone would call the cops.

Still, though, think about this, this great pull in us to connect.

Why not become the one who lives with a full moon in each eye

that is always saying,

with that sweet moon language,

what every other eye in this world is dying to hear?
