June/July Reflections

Tuesday, July 1st, 2014
At the June Solstice (the 21st this year) Spring blossoms into Summer, bringing the year's longest daylight hours to the northern hemisphere. The "lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer" call you to picnic, play ball, garden, hit the beach, or dive into a nearby lake. Even if vacation is not in the cards for you right now, every summer evening and each weekend offer a perfect mini-holiday. What's the inner wisdom of this delightful phase of the annual cycle? In Summer, the flower symbolically opens and blooms and we begin to grow conscious of the year's true purpose, a spiritual journey that often continues into autumn. Like a flower that must be pollinated to bear fruit, we need to open to the energetic pollination of positive, new people, places, and ideas. Where do you long to visit? What sort of people would you like to meet? Are you willing to entertain exciting new possibilities? Most important, are you willing to allow these new influences to take you in new directions to enrich your purpose in 2014? You needn't do anything about this openness right now. Just celebrate it and Summer Solstice throughout July, experiencing the year in full bloom and inviting yourself to blossom. Your only "homework" is to get outdoors, enjoy friends and family, and have fun. It doesn't get much better than that, does it? Happy Summer! Apple: A Conscious Capitalist Conundrum Like most Apple investors, I liked watching my shares multiply after Apple's seven-to-one stock split this June. I love Apple products. But I am unwilling to call the company a Conscious Capitalist, which is a curious statement since I know of no other firm that has so expertly mined the depths of conscious creativity or invented better products to enhance customer creativity. The problem, of course, is that Apple has historically deemed creating great technology its sole mission. Meanwhile, critics charge Apple products are manufactured (in China) under dreadful conditions and that local workers have fallen ill, and even died as a result. Under Tim Cook, Apple seems more serious about social, environmental-and moral-responsibility. That's encouraging. But the question remains: How do conscious investors deal with the issue of owning stocks that are conscious in some areas but not others? One answer is shareholder activism. Put simply, shareholder activists continue to hold stock in imperfect companies and proceed to pester the heck out of them to transform their terrible policies. Not an investor? Then there's pure activism. Anyone, customer, critic, or employee, who wants Apple to boost its social and environmental performance, can check out Green America's "Take Action Against Smart Phone Sweatshops" initiative. Green America, in conjunction with 80 allied NGOs, has collected twenty thousand signatures to deliver to Apple's Lisa Jackson, V.P. for Environmental Affairs from individuals seeking to protect Apple workers by removing dangerous chemicals from factories. For more info, go to Green America's Smart Phone Sweat Shop page. This Summer Solstice, I again shared my passion for journaling with the new participants of Crimson Circle's in-depth Keahak program. Later in the day, Alain and I explored our new Massachusetts home base in the fabled sea town of Gloucester, where we plan to en-Joy a marvelous summer. Love, Patricia

February Reflections

Wednesday, March 26th, 2014
February brings mid-winter in the northern climes, a time when many wonder if Spring will ever come! If the later sunsets don't cheer you, there's St. Valentine's Day and in the US, a long President's Day weekend. So,why do we still have a vague seasonal malaise? Perhaps because the feast of Candlemas, the original Ground Hog's Day, marks an awkward phase in the year's evolution and our own. Last month we invoked a vision for 2014. But as one New Age program put it: Once you definitively choose something new, up comes the same old argument: it can't be done. Truth be told, resistance is a natural phase of growth. At this point in the annual cycle, we sense the first tender shoots of the year's potential. That alone can make us profoundly uneasy. "What! I'm supposed to grow-AGAIN? Enough already." Besides, since we do not yet know exactly what lies ahead, the Unknown tends to trigger fear, alongside resistance. So in February and the first weeks of March, be tender with yourself, open to receive the soul's quiet promptings, and grow inspiration by asking a few questions: "If I had a vision for 2104, what might it be?" To start a business? Marry my sweetheart? Stand my ground, gently but firmly, with a parent, spouse, or colleague? Answer a life-long calling to be an artist, writer, or healer? We can also ask: Which resources do I need to proceed? What new skills am I guided to develop now? Who'll be my allies on the year's journey? The challenge we now face is to accept our natural resistance, let go of old patterns, begin to envision the future, and move forward. From now until Spring Equinox, there will be many, spacious weeks to engage the Unknown and nurture our vision. Notice the expanding daylight, as it slowly coaxes the snow-covered Earth-and rouses its Beings-to prepare for the Spring Renewal coming in March!

Trust Across America

Thank you Trust Across America for naming me a "Top 100 Thought Leader in Trustworthy Business" four years running. What an honor to appear with personal heroes like Bill George, the retired Medtronic CEO, now a Harvard Business School professor, futurist Hazel Henderson of Ethical Markets Media, Frances Hesselbein, retired CEO of the Girl Scouts, Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz and Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh. Here's the full list.

CONSCIOUS CAPITALISM AND CONSCIOUS MONEY

Purpose, Values, and the Stakeholder Model are the essence of Conscious Capitalism. But there's at least one more crucial element: a positive, life-affirming corporate culture-grounded in the values a company stands for. Today there's growing agreement that great business cultures are the secret sauce of success. People who work in a conscious culture feel more free "to speak frankly," says Adam Bryant, a New York Times business columnist. Such a culture is built upon the value of trust. In times of change and uncertainty, says Bryant, people "need that extra level of trust." It is essential that they believe what their leaders "are doing, saying and planning." John Duffy, CEO of 3Cinteractive, a mobile platform firm, recently put this question on an employee survey: "Do you trust John Duffy?" Bryant explains that Duffy was asking if people trust him, not so much as a CEO (although that is certainly important), but as a human being. Clearly, a lot more CEOs should be asking themselves-and their people-the same question. Check out the full story: "How the right corporate culture can guarantee success"
