mystic rose

∙ tenderheartmusings ∙

lured
by your ephemeral radiance
a gentle unfolding
of velvet sensations
softly plants
an enchanting kiss

draped in coral blush,
you emanate a breath of love
fixated, I wonder
if it is a beautiful awakening
or a yearning in full bloom

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.

So we began and will never cease ~Rumi

 

I stood before a silk worm one day. And that night my heart said to me,

“I can do things like that, I can spin skies, I can be woven into love that can bring warmth to people; I can be soft against a crying face, I can be wings that lift, and

I can travel on my thousand feet throughout the earth, my sacks filled with the sacred.”

And I replied to my heart, “Dear, can you really do all those things?”

And it just nodded “Yes”

in silence.

So we began and will never cease.

Be Respons-able vs Respons-ible

Originally posted Strategy Stream 

If you are acting from feelings of responsibility in your business, more than likely you’re experiencing a sense of disconnection from joy. Being “ible” vs “able” implies a disconnect from the deep and essential internal Self: it implies a belief that empowers the external world more than your deep essential, authentic presence of being aka “I must, have, should do (fill in the blank), in order to (fill in the blank).”

When you act from motivations of obligation, like “I should, I must, I can, therefore I have to,” you act from inwardly contracting energies. A contraction inwardly most often results in feelings of despondency, and loss of energy.

As you come into a more profound state of being, whereby you honor your inner connection and authentic nature even more, the natural result is recognizing the “Responsibility Energy” as divisive and almost destructive rather than something that inspires you or any one else.  It is a very different energy than being response-able.

Being response-able in all areas of your business and life aligns more with motivations that are rooted in spontaneous expressions of loving kindness and true purposeful motivations. Being respons-able allows you to authentically “be”.

Don’t allow a habitual pattern of “Responsibility Energy” to dictate your actions. Be alive, present, aware and simply responsive in a pure and non-contrived manner.

Be present, joyful and response-able.

Shift Your Business Perspective

What if your business could create happiness, love, and purpose with the same agility and certainty that it creates expanding profits, new customers, and new innovations? It’s a question that isn’t often asked in business, because intangible qualities like love aren’t easily measurable (and measures are the language of business). Most people don’t believe the tangible, everyday needs of business coexist with the intangible.

Oh, but they do.

The truth is just because the current language of business does not acknowledge intangibles, doesn’t mean they don’t exist.

Your business is an embodiment of who you are and what you believe – every time you expand your business, you also expand the knowledge and empowerment of yourself. When you are fundamentally coming from a place of love and purpose, you automatically are shifting your perspective of business.

When your business blends with your own personal philosophy, decisions become easier. You are able to access support not typically considered in traditional business models. Goals are set and achieved without struggle. Your strategies are driven not just by necessity but by passion. Your focus never wanders. You walk forward with absolute certainty that you are supporting the highest good. Not only does your business become a channel for success – it becomes a channel for your expanded inner self and an expanded model of what it means to be doing business in today’s world.

Poet Post: Joan of Arc by Carol Denson

When I read Ruby’s Eye of the Beholder post, it reminded me of Joan of Arc who acted in accordance with her spiritual vision and led the French to many victories against the occupying English.  If she had only reacted to the material world, she would have known that a 16 year old girl could not influence the course of history.  Instead she acted upon the Divine Guidance of her spiritual vision and created a monumental change in the physical world ~ Carol Denson

Joan of Arc stands in the garden hearing voices call,

but stares away from them, the three angels –

a red-bearded, golden-armored knight,

a flower-wreathed and gauzy-veiled maiden

whose hands are clasped and head canted, gazing

at Joan, and an indistinguishable baby.

Our heroine has risen from a loom,

her stool overturned, her eyes wide

but seeing nothing as she listens into

the space behind her, its unspoken call.

I cry in the Metropolitan Museum

when I come upon this unsuspecting Joan

by Bastien-Lepage.  I’d seen it once

in Paris or Madrid and the circumstance

of finding it again is startling.

Those years ago, heartsick, and now in playful,

happy love, but neither matters, what matters

is the listening and the house behind –

her parents praying for another fate,

their prayers useless against the call.

Spreading Love Around the World (What the Hell ~Hafiz)

The
Real love
I always keep a secret.

All my words
Are sung outside Her window,

For when She lets me in
I take a thousand oaths of silence.

But,
Then She says,

O, then Spirit says,

“What the hell,
Why not give the whole world
My Address.”

May you have a merry-love -filled Christmas.
