During this challenging time that we are going through as a global family, I see in myself and others a decreased level of motivation. If you look up the original meaning it of the word it emphasizes movement; or ‘to move’. I see in myself and others less movement. The word burnout is being used more frequently as well as resilience. It would also seem like we have even higher levels of stress and anxiety than ever before.

As you might know, within the Christian tradition, our human condition is defined by the choices Adam and Eve made. You might recall, Eve was seduced by the Enemy into believing that there is another way to become God-like than eat from the tree of life.

Coming from the charismatic Christian environment I was exposed to some amazing spiritual experiences and practices as far back as I can remember.

Perhaps you recently read my aphorism for CEO’s. It is the first step in my process of serving leaders of small business and startups better. The job of the CEO in today’s times is changing. No longer is it control and command, but connect and collaborate. The CEO needs to hold the space and facilitate the emergence of well-being for everyone involved in the business. The most valuable skill any CEO can have today is informed by an understanding of the seen and unseen world and how they interact. Read more “The Most Valuable Skill for CEO’s”

Yes, you have a unique voice! It is your purpose or raison d’être (as the French say). In my previous posts we looked at spiritual intelligence and our connection with the Divine. Let’s talk more about finding your voice as the next part of your spiritual intelligence. There is a lot of talk about purpose at the moment because we moved away from a monotheistic paradigm when science took over. We generally through out spirituality with religion.
