“On no subject are our ideas more warped and pitiable than on death. … Let children walk with nature, let them see the beautiful blendings and communions of death and life, their joyous inseparable unity, as taught in woods and meadows, plains and mountains and streams of our blessed star, and they will learn that death is stingless indeed, and as beautiful as life, and that the grave has no victory, for it never fights.”
― John Muir,
To think inspired, to act inspired and to feel inspired, one must become a master of, and to know when to let go. In nature letting go is as important as holding on. There is no higher valuation of sunrise over sunset. But in our lives we have attachment and expectations and these two words alone can separate us from nature, ease, love and inspired thinking.
More than ever before in the history of humanity, the need for us, as individuals, to take the power back from the “system” will define who leads, who follows and who ends up totally exhausted and disappointed with life. We must learn to evolve as nature, as our nature demands of us in order to run business rather than be run by business. We must learn to evolve with relationships in order to sustain the love rather than be in continual effort to try to appease the unfulfilled expectations of a partner who is asleep and emotionally engaged in a fight against themselves. Knowing when to “play the game” requires that we know what the game is, and how it is different from the real nature of life, love and leadership. That is my teaching. Separating the fog, clearing the mind, evolving the hearts and minds of leaders from the games of the followers enabling participation without attachment.
