When Do We Talk About Peace?

Take a closer look at the conversations happening in our world and “peace” isn’t necessarily at the top of the list.

I’ve sat through my fair share of workshops, lectures and one-on-one conversations revolving around everything from religion, politics, sales & commerce, leadership development, productivity solutions, empowerment mindsets, wealth building, health and wellness living, and mindfulness & spirituality. I’ve read the books and engaged in deeper perspectives around all of these things and continue to do so because the conversations unfolding are creating the experience we have as a civilization.

But one of my favorite questions to ask is: What is not being said here?

And when I consider the communications as a whole, via all the outlets we share, it’s very clear that “peace” isn’t exactly at the top of our conversation lists.

Oxford dictionary defines peace as…
”1. Freedom from disturbance; tranquility. 1.1. Mental or emotional calm.”
”2. A state or period in which there is no war or a war has ended.”

On the surface, we say we want freedom, but I don’t think we even know what we want freedom “from.”

What we want is peace.

Yet by and large, our world operates in a paradigm where peace is impossible. We hold being “right” in higher regard than finding real solutions that work for everyone. We take actions that perpetuate the divide, regardless of the result. We invest ourselves in means that do not work, thinking somehow it will lead to an end that does.

I’m here to let you know: There is another paradigm. And it can be entered into. It is one where peace is not only possible, but is the way to abundance and freedom and whole life. It does require letting go of each of the old ways and thought systems, in order to enter.

Many have already entered and are now extending ways of sharing and spreading this reality. This is not confined to the work of spiritual teachers, meditation practitioners or yoga instructors. This will be the work of every man and woman, in every part of life, in every industry, who has chosen to lead and extend ways that work, ways of peace, for all. Starting with one’s self.

6 Principles of Conscious Entrepreneurship

This Friday I will be sharing with entrepreneurs in the Oklahoma City area about being a Conscious Entrepreneur.

How is this different than being a "regular" entrepreneur? It might not be at all -- except choosing the conscious route allows our desires for fulfilling our full potential to drive us, and in the process, we become aware and aligned in a way that was previous foreign. This opens the gate to an overwhelming amount of opportunity and freedom!

There are 6 principles we'll be diving into over the course of 2 hours -- with plenty of room to discuss, ask questions and internalize. These 6 Principles came from Laura Cannon who wrote a book called "The Conscious Entrepreneur: A Guide to Maximizing Your Potential for Success, Freedom, and Happiness."

#1 - Oneness: All things are connected

#2 - Presence: Space to rest in awareness

#3 - Inner Compass: Taking cues from your head or your heart

#4 - Impermanence: Nothing stays the same

#5 - Boldness: Without it, your song remains unsung

#6 - Service: Self-transcendence & charting the path for others

Ready to make a difference? To be a champion for change? It starts with YOU. See you Friday!
