Work Worth Doing

As we often discover, life progresses through seasons of natural change and vibrant themes that bind truth to beauty. As we develop consistent methods that work and build personal capacity for love and the knack for trusting intelligence itself within ourselves and learn to recognize similar capacities  in our peers, steady moments of inspiration show us glimpses of genuine glory.

Our ways are tempered magically and miraculously to experience gained by suffering and hardship which, as the ancient texts have passed along to us, build lasting relationships from personal and intimate to casual and remote and the character to maintain them over long timeframes. Our transpersonal psychological and philisophical ways and means (this blog post in evidence) provide us a space within which we each get to accomplish our dream and tell our collective story.

The glory we know shows up as light of various kinds that illuminate those things that hide from us – whether things we need for work or things that would harm us or impede the work if they remained in our space. The gift of discernment endowed by nature herself enables us to sort the useful and beautiful from the vile and gory.

People who lack the training and discipline afforded to the children of light – every now and then – disrupt the processes and patterns of liberation given freely to the contacted. Disciples of perfection work out their own salvation through the works of faith that are written in our code since we first entered the sentient being category.

If one knows in one’s heart the meaning of life and embraces the clarifications and corrections offered in the syllabus, labs and coursework of the ever present all-knowing might of the resident extraterrestrial professing redeemer, the learning and teaching crafts carry forward into the next season of vital work retaining the revised record into the realms of the anticipatory …

Our purpose in life justifies our remaining in this world to the end. Decisions and choices matter only as entertainment for the distracted, delusion for the unfaithful and unfounded fear for the disbelieving. Those of us called into service for the reorganization of humanity reconcile actionable faith and instructive source through walking out on ignorance and deception and stepping onto the path of righteousness ever how lonsome. We simply interpret and activate what we gather from the prime master’s allegory:

The Seed sown in the good soil bears fruit a hundred-fold with each and every planting/harvest cycle – you shall know them by their fruits. Understand your calling so you will assure your election as a gifted child with helpful creative offerings in the grand repository.

 

Business as UN-usual

Truth in business online and off is finding its way through all of the hype and deception. The Internet gives creative people a platform devoid of the dire need for hard physical capital like the “old system” required even just to get the first feelers out. We’re using as many free services as we can to build a base of triple bottom line businesses – people, planet, profit. But in the 21st Century, profit has a different meaning altogether from its classic definition formed in greed and self-interest.

Many other terms are changing their definitions as the context shifts modes from the reckless to the sensible. We have collectively found the need for what sustains and helps us survive our own past madness. We are waking up to what should have, could have and would have been  35 years ago through a series of wake-up calls to what shall, can and will happen if we are to survive. What we have discovered is that Nature has given us abundance that we were simply too blind (or blinded) to see. We are made not only to survive but to thrive.

“Growth” is not for markets, companies or even social networks. It is again for the Natural world – trees, grass, flora and fauna and the ecosystem itself – as it was for Early Humankind. Scarcity was a modern myth. Now, we’re seeing people and ideas coming together through openness and sharing via the Public Domain, the Creative Commons, Open Source Licensing and other tools that show the willingness to express love and kindness through our work and insights. Rather than locking ideas away as ‘intellectual property’ or ‘trade secrets’ many of us have decided to buid and use the “Commons” approach and share everything we can. We have discovered that security – social, financial, even physical is at best a set of illusions based also in myth. Open, honest effort to build real community is true security.

“Business” is the art of staying on task; remaining focused yet open; being ready for unexpected change; becoming adaptable to emergent and divergent realities; accepting gifts; receiving instruction; listening to expressed needs; recognising unique skills:::

“Profit” is the act of receiving that which is given. The gift of life cannot be “earned” but it must be appreciated and nurtured through mutual respect and tender loving care. Profit in business has nothing at all to do with making money or building private wealth any more. When we value our world, it will take care of us. We are learning now to add value to our built environment that honors the natural environment that was here when we arrived and will remain when we’re gone.
