JIE Ep 18 Blog/

I am using a blog posting from my friend Selina Maitreya. She is my upcoming guest on my podcast Journeys Into Enlightenment with Janet releasing tomorrow Tuesday Sept 10th. 
We are going to be talking about her awareness Practical Spirituality. These are certainly not two words one hears put together often. 
She sent me this before we recorded and it was delightful to read what I know to be true in her words. She lives her daily life as her spiritual practice as all my guests and I do. 
Love, Janet 

"Many of my Facebook friends comment on my continued positive response to the difficulties that I encounter in my life.
The people that have known me a long time and know me well, remark on how I’ve changed over the years and continue to stay in a peaceful state regardless of the many challenges I face.
People ask me all the time how can you continue to see the best in others when the world is falling apart?
The reason I continue to see the positive aspects in life is because I choose to. We live in a world of polarity and for every piece of goodness we experience, there is difficulty we could have chosen.
For every bit of chaos that lands in our local or global world, we can still choose to focus our attention on the goodness that exists.
We are our attention and what we put our attention on grows.
It’s important to see what is around us, it’s critical for us to see the full picture of our life but what we choose to put our attention on in response to what we see, is the key to having a peaceful life instead of one of misery.
Read that again please. Read it over and over if you need to. For our next moment comes from our response to chaos, not from the chaos that landed. That's why I make a point of responding from a high frequency.

That my friends is the secret to a peaceful life.
How do I know that?

I know this from experience. This is how I live. This is what I teach. I have had the opportunity to witness the amazing changes my students have accomplished as we've worked together and they have learned how to create a new lifestyle, one where love, kindness and appreciation are full frontal.
I choose to put my attention on gratitude. I choose to appreciate the good that surrounds me. Everybody has goodness in their life. The wonderful aspects of your life never leave when irritation arises you simply choose to allow them to recede into the background when trouble shows up.
I challenge you the next time you’re irritated, a piece of difficulty lands or you’re handling a great tragedy to find the areas of your life that you are still grateful for and focus on them with deep intention.
This is how we heal, this is how we grow, this is how we move more quickly and easily and peacefully through our difficult times. Bring more light into your world when darkness prevails by making the choice to do so.
"Choice, it’s yours, choose wisely!"

Journeys Into Enlightenment with Janet Podcast 
Ep 17 Blog  Being is the Business Model

My intention with this topic was to explore how our interpretation of Consciousness is playing out in our business worlds. We have so much disconnected and discontent in our world today.

Here in the US we were looking for new approaches in government in our last election. Many hoped a businessman would offer something new to the business that government is. Not a bad idea and yet I guess it just depends on the kind of businessman you elect. 

Our actions have created a transcending opportunity of potential in action as it shines a blinding light on our darkness within. 

There are many considerations that come to mind about business as an organization of people working together. Most of human endeavor can be regarded as a business. How we are working together is the issue. Doesn’t matter if it is the mom and pop store, big box department store or our government and it branches and partners in this small world.

All will be conditioned by those involved in the process. The resulting expression as product or service will reflect this. You hear the phrase “working relationship” which will always reference “not working relationship” into the equation. There is a lot of this present in ruling either by dictator or groups of interests.  

All too often we are being shown how many of our business models lately are reflecting our feeling of disconnect with all. We are having to ask companies to be more responsible in their interface with all of us, be they the media, Facebook, Walmart or our bodies of Congress and The White House.

Where do our tenets about Being come into play? I am not talking religious dogma. I am talking about treating all with Oneness as basis, our shared connection. The offering of respect, appreciation and gratitude no matter the face. It is okay to have a different viewpoint or orientation than another. Life is a spectrum after all. But being in judgment of that face is not enriching any of us and is a destructive path to follow.

Standards in practice of “Do no harm, only help, treat others as you would like to be treated yourself” often disappear when up against the drive of business survival, money or power. Our great ideas and ways of being helpful get compromised. Personal or corporate reasons move us to take actions not always embracing others but as adversarial. Could be your competitor or your family. If we are in a state of fighting for our job or jobs, the work environment becomes compromised.

Just because one has a good idea that fills a need well does not make one a business owner or partner in successful relations with others. As business owner of any kind, how you treat others starts with yourself and reflects in your employees. If you are an employee, same goes with your colleagues. How are you using self-care? If your idea of self-care is measured in the number of bottles of beer or wine, you consume at night something is not right.

No time to go on retreat or sabbatical? Then use your time in the bathroom wisely. Instead of daydreaming your stream contemplate and appreciate your moment. Do you make it easy for your crew to share their awareness and needs they have at work and at home? How responsive, not responsible, are we with others?

Being present is not a burden. It is not a call to arms to do something or make something right or solve. That will come out of our resulting inspired action. Being present comes as our response to first valuing our self and valuing others. Listening is what is important and often makes the difference in outcome.

Same as with our children. They need an ear and heart, not always you to solve the problem. Letting them become resourceful may lead you on a merry dance yes and will have its own rewards.

A company is as healthy as the relation of the CEO to the janitor in the business. When both are being treated with respect, we all benefit. Anything else indicates a challenge to play with.

When was the last time you told someone around you, “Hello”.  “Thank you. I appreciate your helping me out”, be it home or office?

Being is the business model.

Consciousness and a Heart Beating

I had a stent put into an artery in my heart a few days ago. Being open to possibilities and choices brings changes to incorporate. There are chemical assists to engage at just the right levels and types. New patterns in breath and heart beat coordination. 

All has brought information to enhance my state of awareness that Life is in the beats of a heart.

My heart beats in the delight of just beating.
