You are a spiritual being living in a physical body and world.
Are you a practical person?
My experience finds that most practical people initially believe that spirituality has no place in business, finance, or just daily life and accomplishment in general.
Nothing could be further from the truth.
I submit it’s imperative to utilize so-called spiritual power to create practical results.
But spirituality may be defined differently than you think.
Wisdom is the ability to access
and utilize spiritual power to create practical results.
What spiritual traditions call God or Spirit, the physicist calls Energy or Consciousness. The bottom line is that everything in physical form comes from the same substance. Once again, that substance is conscious and aware.
All matter originates and exists only by virtue of a force…
We must assume behind this force the existence of a conscious and intelligent Mind.
This Mind is the matrix of all matter.
~ Max Planck (father of quantum physics)
The first law of thermodynamics tells us that everything is energy and energy can never be created or destroyed. All that ever was or ever shall be is already here. It always has been; and always will be.
Everything is energy from a pine tree to a Porsche to a planet to a person.
You are connected to everything. Consider the implications.
Those who express that spiritual power has no place in the boardroom are expressing their ignorance of fundamental laws. For according to modern physics, as well as ancient traditions alike, all things seen come from the unseen.
The very foundation of this universe is built upon unseen forces.
So why do we waste so much time on the effects versus the cause?
God’s will for this universe, to the best of our knowledge, is growth and evolution. Observing the behavior of the inhabitants of the universe, both seen as well as unseen, prove this to be true.
All the rest of the anthropomorphized projections we place upon God or Universal Intelligence are just our own feeble attempts to understand what can never be fully understood.
God’s will is growth. Period.
You’re a spiritual being; and spirit has one objective:
fuller expansion, experience and expression.
So, the greatest level in which you as a Leader can growth and develop is in your ability to harness the unseen forces to create observable and tangible results.
This, no matter how you slice and dice it, is a spiritual process; and like it or not, even science now tells us this is how to create tangible results.
And that process necessitates growth. For let’s face it, the tangible world of appearances is very seductive.
Frankly, the animating principle doesn’t care how that growth comes.
With one caveat.
It loves efficiency.
Nature is completely respectful of the outcome but has little respect for the process.
Please read that again.
In fact, the Law of Conservation of Energy, again from thermodynamics, tells us that nature always chooses the path of least resistance.
In other words, efficiency.
Nature is completely respectful of the outcome, which is evolution and growth;
but has little respect for the process of getting there. Efficiency is its objective;
and it will always move by the most efficient means to its end.
So, what does this mean?
The Spiritual Life Force within you wants only to more fully expand, experience and express. In this way and this way alone, you align with Universal Will.
Second (and here’s the rub), to align with the spiritual driver, as well as its love for efficiency, you must commit to putting yourself in the most accelerated growth situations possible.
Unfortunately for your own comfort, both neurosciences, biology, and many other sciences, prove that you learn and grow the most while on the border of chaos and order.
You learn and grow the most on the border of chaos and order.
So, buckle up; and enjoy the ride.
True Leadership is tough medicine.
Are you committed?
Be a Leader. Live Your Purpose; and Take Your Power Back!
