It’s time for change. Did you know that the twentieth century was the most violent century in recorded history? And financial crises, violence, and health scares remain daily news. Fear, greed, judgment and tunnel vision are epidemic. There is good news though!
Whenever the scales tip so far to one side, inevitably a correction follows. We are that correction.
We’re moving out of old paradigms of the way we do business and into alignment with Spiritual principles. The Green/Sustainability movement evidences a paradigm shift which puts the benefit of the whole over the good of a few. We are waking up to the truth that putting the interests of the whole first, before private interests, benefits everyone. Entrepreneurs are bringing more consciousness to their businesses to reflect who they really are. Conscious-centered business models are being sought by those of us who want our business model to be aligned with the principals we live by.
For me, no longer can I separate how I behave “out there in the world” with my inner life. My livelihood can’t be focused on getting my next commission check. I now see and affirm my connection with the world. Whatever I put “out there” – in the form of energy will affect the whole. Each of us really does have the power to change the world. I am reminded of a quote I saw on a greeting card which was something to this effect:
If you think you’re too small to make a difference, you’ve never been in bed with a mosquito.
Maggie Ostara, founder of the New Consciousness Entrepreneurs Network succinctly writes:
“Now is the time. It is up to us to create new forms – new ways of doing business, new institutions, new ways of building, new ways of relating to each other and to the earth. The old forms and ways are dropping away. It’s time for our courage, our creativity, and our commitment to come forth.
And it all begins with a New Consciousness – One based on heart coherence, connection, cooperation and collaboration rather than competition and coercion – on a recognition that we are all in this together. We have the opportunity to respond differently than the ways in which large civilizations have in the past when faced with challenges the magnitude of which we are faced with today.” http://www.ncenetwork.com
Each shift in consciousness creates a shift in the energy put out into the world. We all have a contribution no one else can make and now is the time to make a positive impact on the world. Whether you are a business owner or work for a business, your individual contribution of consciousness and kindness will effect a change.
