On Desire, Expectations and Hope.

On Desire, Expectations and Hope My first impressions thinking about these 3 words this morning are: • Desire is Life force, the Lust for Life. It brings evolutionary momentum. Desire can also become an addiction to the familiar old or to the exciting new. Deeming desire a 'bad' thing potentially kills the Lust for Life. This won't get you enlightened any sooner by the way, as naming desire 'undesirable' tends to repress Eros, the inevitable evolutionary aspect of being human. This is a fruitless endeavor creating lots of stress. • Expectations can be specific vehicles for bringing momentum to innovation and [...]

Emotional Homelessness

What if the current exponential amount of homeless people is a symptom of our inner, emotional homelessness? What if the 121 million people currently fleeing from their homes because of life threatening circumstances and the huge number of people evicted from reposessed houses are symptoms of one underlying process? What if the expansion of inhabitable areas on this planet is an effect of not fully inhabiting our inner world has the same source too: not spending quality time with our wounds and disappointments, love and longings, pain and protection modes, passion and potential. What if living on the streets, in shelters [...]

Innovative Momentum

This morning I wrote a text on Innovative Momentum that might interest you. It is one of the 'raw texts' for my next book ‘Conscious Interconnection Volume 2: Know your Potential, Passion and Joy’.

Needs drive and motivate us to fulfill them until we find different sources of growth [...]

Are you as much into Being and Relating as into Doing?

This post is inspired by reading ‘Business spirituality’ by Paul de Blot and the integral business book ‘4D leadership; competitive advantage through vertical leadership development’ by Alan Watkins. Both well known authors mention the importance of doing, being and relating. In our Western culture emphasis on doing seems to overrule all else. In business the profit margins gained by exploiting doingness are becoming smaller and smaller. Alan Watkins makes a compelling case when showing the potential of optimising the use of being and relating next to the well known doing. I am really happy with […]
