Business is THE most powerful force for change in the world. Period. There is no other force that has made a bigger impact on the course of history, our planet, and the human condition.
And nearly every day I hear somebody – sometimes me – vilifying business. What do we do with this behemoth power? It’s our own creation, and it, too, is sacred.
On a macro level, businesses have long been intimately tied to government, which manages the flow of all things on the material earth. From entire governmental advisory boards made up of influential business people, to lobbying groups that transform opinion into law – our world is arguably run by business.
In our communities, businesses define resources to which we have access, and therefore, to some extent, the quality of our lives.
On a personal level, you as the consumer declare what you value with what you buy – therefore deciding which businesses grow and which businesses die.
Business is ubiquitous – but we shun it and all the ideas it represents. But if this is where the greatest power for change lies, isn’t that where we – the healers, teachers, and leaders – can effect a change?
Imagine living in a community where all business leaders and staff actively practice yoga and meditation – even for just 5 minutes a day.
Imagine a time when personal insight received on the mat or cushion is translated into business choices.
Imagine this being repeated across the 28+ million businesses in the United States alone.
This is what we do with this behemoth we call “business” – we see the divinity in business of all sizes, and we share the sacred tools and technologies that have transformed us personally. We make these teachings approachable for those who don’t speak the language. We unshroud the mystery and give the light away freely.
Imagine this world. It is possible.
