Activity vs Action

UnknownMind always thinks in terms of purpose, profit, utility. When mind disappears, action does not disappear, activity disappears –and there is a great difference between the two. Activity has utility; action is pure joy, pure beauty. 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

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.

I swear ~ Rumi

Heart shaped moon reflected in oceanLet go of your worries

and be completely clear-hearted,

like the face of a mirror

that contains no images.

If you want a clear mirror,

behold yourself

and see the shameless truth,

which the mirror reflects.

If metal can be polished

to a mirror-like finish,

what polishing might the mirror

of the heart require?

Between the mirror and the heart

is this single difference:

the heart conceals secrets,

while the mirror does not.

Stretch at Your Desk

There is a stream of business, when everything is developing and prospering naturally. Occasionally you may come up against rocks and obstacles you need to divert around, but there’s no reason for flow to stop or for you to be so stressed out you are not taking care of yourself!

If we allow the anxiety and pressure of being an entrepreneur to take hold of our minds and our bodies, it will affect our well-being, efficiency, and ultimately our attitude about our business.

When we are strong enough to take hold of these anxieties, the results are immeasurable. Staying attuned to our core-highest-stress-free-self results in sustainable and fulfilling business results!

One way of saying “no” to stress, is taking a few minutes out of each workday to stretch at your desk or wherever you may be working. When you stop and stretch, doing so will improve your circulation and the amount of oxygen to your brain; thus your attitude, creativity, thoughts, intention and concentration are more under your conscious control.

It is a given when you begin to focus on your business, the stream will expand in all kinds of ways – new clients, new ideas, flowing money – and of course, more things “to-do”.

By incorporating pausing & stretching into your routine, you are taking control of the stress side of things .

Pro-actively keeping the banks of your stream (your mind, body, spirit, as well as your strategic intention) strong will help you to gracefully manage and allow the inevitable grace of expanded abundance and gifts coming your way.

Heart-Centered Meditation

Follow your heart, but be quiet for a while first. Ask questions,         then feel the answer. Learn to trust your heart.                              ~ Author Unknown

Operating in a survival state-of-mind in which the ego is in control of our thoughts and emotions when external events rock us is not uncommon.

This state-of-mind is characterized by negative self-talk and unhelpful thinking patterns. It can lead us to feel disempowered, hopeless and pessimistic about the future.

If this is a feeling you recognize, take note; there is a solution.  To help you infiltrate ego-hold with peaceful more heart-centered thoughts, try incorporating a meditative practice into your day.

By taking a moment to pause and reflect on your highest-self and giving yourself the opportunity to remember who you are and who you want to be, you will conquer the negative self-talk and retain a positive, peaceful and heart-centered outlook.

Allow the meditative process to tap into your subconscious– there you will find clarity and a sense of peace.

Peaceful-Heart-Centered Meditation

A peaceful-heart-centered meditation begins by finding a place where you can sit quietly, without outside disturbances.  Close your eyes and take several deep breaths.  As you begin to feel settled, bring your attention to the area of your physical heart.

With each breath you take, see your heart slowly expanding.  Allow your heart to continue to expand.  If you feel that your mind is trailing off – note the pattern.  Are you thinking of unpaid bills or a to-do list that seems never ending?  Bring yourself back to heart-center, and refocus on your breathing.  Take a few minutes – or longer – to rest in this nourishing energy.  Now, slowly open your eyes, sit quietly.

Integrate this awakening into your being. You should feel awakened to specific details related to your mission, and you should feel a sense of peace and calmness, rather than feeling stress and anxiety. You can work with increased focus, clarity and awareness, increased productivity and an increase in self-worth and self-confidence.

By taking the time to listen to the wisdom of your highest, heart-centered self during meditation and throughout the day, you allow this wisdom to guide you into a higher expression; where the ego does not have a booming voice.

Why Rumi?

In profound spiritual poetry, Rumi (a 13th century poet who is still a top-seller in the U.S.) brilliantly blended together material and intangible worlds in expressions that resonate with many of us.
His poetry in particular speaks to our own brilliant center of creation and radiance, regardless of our individual religious affiliation or non-affiliation.
His poetry inspires us to view our world from another perspective. It gives us pause and allows us to access the depth of our inner world and divinity.
Heart-Centered-Strategy is a reflection of the balance between the spiritual and material; accessing the spiritual is a practice to remind us to stop and view all of our business actions from an inner, meditative vision. More about heart-centered-strategy

“Rumi’s place in the history of religions is as a bridge-between-faiths.  The story of his funeral in 1273 is well known. Representatives came from  every religion -Muslims, Christians, Jews, Buddhists, Hindus.  When questioned about this, they responded, “He deepens us wherever we are.”  Rumi lives in the heart, the core (he might call it friendship) of our impulse to praise, to worship, to explore the mystery of union.  Even his name is a bridge word.” Coleman Barks Rumi: Bridge to the Soul: Journeys into the Music and Silence of the Heart, HarperCollins, 2007.

7 Business Plan Mistakes

1. Misunderstanding the purpose: it’s the planning journey that matters, not just the document Planning is a process of setting goals and establishing specific measures of progress, then tracking your progress and following up with course corrections. The plan itself is just the first step; it is reviewed and revised often. Don’t even print it unless you absolutely have to. Leave it on a digital network instead.

2. Doing it in one big push: do it in pieces and steps The plan is a set of connected modules, like blocks. Start anywhere and get going. Do the part that interests you most, or the part that provides the most immediate benefit. That might be strategy, concepts, target markets, business offerings, projections, mantra, vision, whatever. . . just get going.

3. Finishing your plan: your plan is living If your plan is done, then your business is done. That most recent version is just a snapshot of what the plan was then. It should always be alive and changing to reflect changing assumptions & feedback from all levels of your environment.

4. Hiding your plan: be transparent as possible Use common sense about what details you share, keeping some information, such as individual salaries, confidential. But do share the vision, goals and measurements, using the planning to build team spirit, peer collaboration and ventures.

5. Confusing cash with profits: understand both There’s a huge difference between the two. Profits are an accounting concept; cash is money in the bank. You don’t pay your bills with profits. Make sure you take the time to forecast realistically  – this usually means you will have to take the time to throughly understand expenses, cash and profits.

6. Diluting your priorities: pick a few and complete them A plan that stresses three or four priorities is a plan with focus and power. People can understand three or four main points. A plan that lists 20 priorities doesn’t really have any.

7. Sweating the details : having a strategy does not mean you don’t have faith Details are important, especially in the beginning, but remember that your plan is fundamentally an invitation to the universe to play with you. Make it a priority to take the time to breath deeply, meditate and connect with your inner strength & guidance. This will allow you to not get caught up in anxiety & control.
