Shake out the nonsense

Success in business can and will take on a life of it’s own and begin to run us –we may, for example,5265_pg_5265_09 start to live by the measures of others or shoot for goals and targets without examining unexpected collateral damage.

Keep your ego in check!! Once in a while, drag yourself around by the hair and give yourself a good talking to –hold yourself upside down and shake all the nonsense out – fan the flame of loving connection.

Tired of Speaking Sweetly ~ Hafiz

Love wants to reach out and manhandle us,
Break all our teacup talk of God.

If you had the courage and
Could give the Beloved His choice, some nights,
He would just drag you around the room
By your hair,
Ripping from your grip all those toys in the world
That bring you no joy.

Love sometimes gets tired of speaking sweetly
And wants to rip to shreds
All your erroneous notions of truth

That make you fight within yourself, dear one,
And with others,

Causing the world to weep
On too many fine days.

God wants to manhandle us,
Lock us inside of a tiny room with Himself
And practice His dropkick.

The Beloved sometimes wants
To do us a great favor:

Hold us upside down
And shake all the nonsense out.

But when we hear
He is in such a “playful drunken mood”

Most everyone I know
Quickly packs their bags and hightails it
Out of town.

Mindfulness

 

flat,550x550,075,fAccording to Jon Kabat-Zinn, “mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way; on purpose, in the present moment, and non judgmentally.”

Mindfulness has to do with examining who we are, with questioning our view of the world and our place in it, and with cultivating some appreciation for the fullness of each moment we are alive. Most of all, it has to do with being in touch.

Meditation helps us wake up from a state of automaticity and unconsciousness, thereby making it possible for us to live our lives with access to the full spectrum of our conscious and unconscious possibilities.

By investigating inwardly our own nature as beings and, particularly, the nature of our own minds through careful and systematic self-observation, we live lives of greater satisfaction, harmony, and wisdom.

Mindfulness and meditation provide a simple but powerful route for getting ourselves unstuck, back into touch with our own wisdom and vitality. It is a way to take charge of the direction and quality of our own lives. It is the direct opposite of taking life for granted.

The habit of ignoring our present moments in favor of others yet to come leads directly to a pervasive lack of awareness of the web of life in which we are embedded. This includes a lack of awareness and understanding of our own mind and how it influences our perceptions and our actions. It severely limits our perspective on what it means to be a person and how we are connected to each other and the world around us.

When we commit ourselves to paying attention in an open way, without falling prey to our own likes and dislikes, opinions and prejudices, projections and expectations, new possibilities open up and we have a chance to free ourselves from the straitjacket of unconsciousness.

When you feel a peaceful joy

images-6You know what it feels like to be “in the flow” –-those times when your words and actions seem supported by creation –when for example, a specific person was needed, they would show up; when a certain set of circumstances was necessary for a project to go on, the pieces seemed to magically fall into place. It could be said that in those moments, your Highest Self was joyfully guiding your actions.

You have also probably experienced what it feels like when you are not in the flow, when you have wandered off your path and joy seems replaced by struggle. In those times, things do not move easily; the “wick won’t light”.

What can bring you back to your path is consciously tuning in —repeatedly reawakening to peace and your Higher Self. In the space of joyful awakening there is access to deep knowledge of what to create, speak, release, and leverage in the moment and for the future of your business.

When you feel a peaceful joy, you’re near the truth.

Unquiet and off center, jealous or greedy, what you do seems pretentious and those around you insincere.

Speak the clearest truth you know, and let the dis-ease heal.

If words are tinged with lying, they’re like water dripping into an oil lamp.

The wick won’t light, and the pleasure and rest of your love room will diminish. ~Rumi

Look for the mysterious….

Look for the mysteriouimages-3s in life. Wherever you look – in the white clouds, in the stars in the night, in the flowers, in a flowing river – wherever you look, look for the mystery. And whenever you find that a mystery is there, meditate on it. Meditation means: dissolve yourself before that mystery, annihilate yourself before that mystery, disperse yourself before that mystery. Be no more, and let the mystery be so total that you are absorbed in it. And suddenly a new door opens, a new perception is achieved ~Osho

When you are attempting to implement, tweak, or develop a growth plan for your business, the first step should always be checking into the mysterious. Checking into the mysterious means looking beyond your first impressions, viewing your business holographically and moving beyond the boundaries of making “typical” business decisions. In this way you access and integrate new perceptions into action and suddenly …all flows.

You act not because something has to be achieved; you act because action is a dance, is a song.

You act because you are so full of energy ~Osho

Here’s to the crazy ones!

Here’s to the crazy ones!  The misfits, the troubled ones, the rebels! The round pegs in the square holes!  The ones who see things differently! They’re not fond of rules; you can quote them, agree with them, disagree, glorify or vilify them. But the only thing you can’t do – ignore them! Because they change things.  They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as crazy ones, we see genius. Because the ones that think they can change the world, are the ones that do. ~Steve Jobs narrating Apple Commercial

Keep the Financial Fires Blazing

images

Blazing passion is real power. It is the ying (feminine) and the yang (masculine) coming together. Passion can create anything you want and inspire you to accomplish the impossible.

Passion will move mountains and bring business success.

Passion is the energy blend of containment (ying) and force (yang) that results in a fire-building cosmic dance of creation.

Passion is the on-going implementation of your business (the container for your desire) from a space of still mind, penetrated with the force of conscious action.
Un-stilled mind will always think in terms of purpose, profit, and utility. Mind acting without pause will be aggressive and full of activity.

When mind is stilled thru meditation, activity will disappear and action will appear –and there is a great difference between the two. Activity has utility; conscious action becomes pure joy, pure beauty. You act not because something has to be achieved; you act because action is a joy, a dance. You act because you are so full of energy.

And all your joyful dancing cannot but result in a blazing fire of fulfilling abundance.
