Deliver Profound Mutual Benefit

Learning how to be in love first with yourself and then with your customers, allows you to consistently view from the heart and unconditionally give.

An unconditional way of doing business is the opposite of a conditional or depending way. Conditional business is a usual way to do business –I give you this, you give me that –because you need me, you depend on me, and I need you, so I depend on you.

Unconditionally buying yourself first reminds you that the truth is you need nothing else but yourself. If you need nothing other than yourself, this is true of your customers as well. This means that nothing other than profound mutual benefit is worth offering.

In the space of unconditionality, both you and your customers expand. As you relate to your customers unconditionally, you will always be looking for the extraordinary in the the ordinary; allowing you to access and develop your own extraordinariness and deliver profoundly.

The more you are motivated by love, the more fearless and free your actions will be ~Dalai Lama

Interweaving Creative Force, Action & Attention

Fundamentally, planning is about creating the steps between a current situation and a chosen future. To paraphrase Julia Cameron, who so brilliantly addresses our creative urge in The Artist’s Way …we are compelled because we are ourselves creations; infused with an indwelling creative force. Creative energy is a gift – we are meant to design new creations as a gift back. Refusal to do so is counter to our true nature.

We intuitively know how to form creative energy into a structure that has the potential to attract what we need and desire. Steps are taken; energy turns into form i.e. a spider spins a web, an entrepreneur writes a business plan. Often, frustration occurs when as soon as the structure is designed, we continue to expect specific linear results (hello ego!) and become lost and identified with goals and the structure itself. How can we relax when our structure demands that there are customers to capture, products to be sold, and bills to be paid?

One option is to go after our targets no matter what – stomping over competitors and employees, short-changing or deceiving customers, destroying the planet and ignoring our values. Another option is to recognize and get over the fact that after we plan what we want, the specific linear results from specific actions phase is over.  Now we can RELAX, pay attention, and know that all good things will come.

Evolving business concepts proactively interweave creative force, action & attention. When we design frameworks, it is natural that not only will some success show up, but external resistance and internal doubt will also arise. Once the structure is intact, it is imperative to to be attentive, enthralled, fascinated, and non-judgmental about EVERYTHING that shows up in our web. We must then be willing to intervene if necessary, let go and modify external actions with the feedback we have received from the universe / environment. We also must be willing to acknowledge and clean-up, to the best of our ability, fear and doubt that may arise within ourselves and our team. Planning and letting go is the equivalent of ego and sacred attention working together- ensuring honorable, joyful, and sustainable bottom-lines.

1:Look into the mysterious 2:Integrate 3:Flow

Look for the mysterious 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.

Deliver Transformative Services

Originally uploaded by mpodolak

When you deliver a product or service, you are participating in a shared reality that exists between you and your customers. There is an intimate agreement about the shared reality. There is trust and communication about the mutual benefits of your interchange. This is communion; a sharing of spirit.

Within the space of communion, there is a natural evolution that is set in motion. It is a given that this evolution is a growth process for both you and your customers. Consider approaching the development and delivery of your products and services with a conscious commitment to evoke evolution and transformation.

Any evolution is a process; a growth pattern. You set the evolution in motion by fulfilling a specific need or desire for your customer. From that point forward, you are in a unique position to evoke evolution. When you evoke, you go beyond simply participating in the reality between you and your customer, to deeply influencing (impressing) upon the reality.

In order to evoke vs. participate, add an element to each and every one of your products & services that meets not only the immediate desire of your customer, but a “higher desire” as well. Always reflect back to your customer a vision of their highest self. For example, if you are selling “A” laptops, delivering it with the clear message that your customer has everything to do with why this laptop is so fantastic, meets a higher-desire recognition that “A” laptop users are smart and savvy. When your “A” laptop customer configures their laptop, invite them to join an on-line community of smart and savvy “A” laptop users. These higher desire attributes impress upon the growth pattern of evolution –deepening the relationship with your customer, as well as evoking qualities of co-creation, self-esteem and community.

Think of your products & services as an invitation to an intimate interchange with your customer vs. an exchange –this is the access to communion. An interchange is spirit-to-spirit vs. an ego-to-ego exchange. If you choose to hold and maintain the interchange of communion with sacred gloves, you impress upon the evolution implicit in communion. Impressing with loving consciousness is the opportunity to influence the highest evolution for business, the planet, and humanity.

Make Love to the World with your Strategy

Originally uploaded by ~Mina~

When you speak, plan, and act your business into being you are accessing your highest creative self and then yoking it into reality. Your heart or love center is where it comes together. It could be said that the vision you have of your business comes from a divine source, then you, as an instrument of source, create into the field of business. When you create into the field of business you are in a matrix where lots of people before you, now, and in the future will be creating and playing. Your strategy sets your boundaries of the field and helps you to blissfully play and not get caught within rules and consciousness that are not useful to you. The way to do this is to design your strategy (or plan) from a framework of making love to the world.

Making love to the world in this context is about making love from your heart center, while accessing sexual energy.  Sexual (love) energy is the primal and creative energy of the universe. All things that are alive come from sexual energy. In animals and other life forms, sexual energy expresses itself as biological creativity. All life, all expression, all flowering is basically sex energy. In any situation where we feel attraction, arousal, awakening, alertness, passion, interest, inspiration, excitement, creativity or enthusiasm, in each of these situations, sexual energy is at work.

Whenever we feel these states of awareness, we put it in our attention to create our strategy. It is this sexual energy source, that we then yoke into experience with business transactions and keep alive in our awareness with strategy implementation. This is the act of creating a friendship (or union) with vibrant energy and making love to the world with it; thus elevating the stream of life and the matrix of business to new heights.

Within the matrix of business there are a few general rules to adhere to and play by –anything beyond these general rules have been created by others.  Unless you design your own rules and measures of success, you will be doomed to play by the rules and measures of others. Bliss, carefreeness and playfulness are the essence of sexual energy in its most refined state –maintaining this essence is the number one rule when love is the bottom-line.

Patience Pays

Patience pays, wait, let the hand of God work for you, and all good things will reach you ~Yogi Bhajan

Fundamentally, planning is about creating the steps between a current situation and a chosen future.  Steps are taken –containers / structures are created i.e. a spider spins a web, an entrepreneur writes a business plan.  Often, frustration occurs when as soon as the structure is designed, we continue to expect specific linear results and become lost and identified with goals and the container itself. How can we relax when our structure demands that there are customers to capture, products to be sold, and bills to be paid?

One option is to be patient, trust ourselves, and relax anyway. When we are patient, we can pay deep attention, remember who we are, adjust accordingly, and allow all good things to reach us.

On a recent trip to Bastrop State Park near Austin, my husband and I stayed in a cabin in the woods. On the back porch was a picnic table set in tight quarters on cement with waist high stone walls. Four mornings in a row I walked thru the area to do my yoga by the water. Every morning there was a spider web spun from the same side of the bench to the same stone wall. Every morning I walked on the other side of the bench, so a not to disturb the web. When I was done with yoga, the web was gone. The spider seemingly made adjustment for visitors! (OK, maybe it just closed down shop at daybreak). I imagined her setting up shop sometime in the middle of the night, patiently waiting to receive – basking in the moonlight -never expending an ounce of energy more then she needed to, including any mind games about why she has to deal with people in the morning.

Evolving business practices proactively interweave attention, action, and adjustment.  Patience is a practice of deep attention and is access to balancing allowing and receiving. A practice that pays to the bottom-line and beyond.

We are all Shamans Sharing Sacred Space

Originally posted 8/2009 ~In order to heal, Shamans routinely permeate boundaries; boundaries of mind and body, boundaries between consciousness and sub-consciousness, space and time, people and circumstances, humans and nature, and between matter and spirit.

Shamans show us that what we experience as our separate self is illusionary – they teach us to give birth to a truer sense of who we are and to recognize our connection to all things.  When we recognize our interconnectedness, we make business decisions from a holistic vs a compartmentalized view.

On the world stage, we are going through a collective shamanic healing process, a genuine death/rebirth experience. As Paul Levy, writes “our species and its civilization are currently in the throes of a collective nervous breakdown. If what we as a species, are doing to ourselves (destroying the biosphere, the very life-support system of the planet, to use one example) isn’t collective madness, then what in the world is? Our underlying institutionalized and incorporated structures that are helping to keep us asleep are breaking down and coming apart. The false, illusory separate self, which experiences ourselves as alien from one another is dying as is the fundamental framework by which we relate to each other and the world. As we recreate ourselves we awaken to our deep interconnection and interdependence with each other and all living beings.”

Interconnection and interdependence awakening are transcendent boundary breakers. Recreating ourselves and redesigning business frameworks from this expanded space is exciting…..and challenging. Relying on our innate Shamanic abilities such as going within, deep listening and relying on intuition will assist us in meeting the challenge. As awakening evolves, we come to recognize that we are all Shamans sharing sacred space. (Edited post from August 2009)
