Be At Peace
March 30, 2020
“When I run after what I think I want, my days are a furnace of distress and anxiety;
If I sit in my own place of patience, what I need flows to me, and without pain.
From this I understand that what I want also wants me and is looking for me and attracting me
There is a great secret in this for anyone who can grasp it”
Great poetry has a fantastic ability to invoke contemplation while also inspiring change at the same time. This poem by the 17th-century Sufi saint and poet Rumi captures the mood of the day eloquently and sets out a simple life lesson for all of us corporate warriors on how we should be conducting ourselves in these troubled times.
The whole world is in the same boat.
How do I make myself productive? Should I be pushing the client for the order? Can I impose and insist on meetings? Is my product or solution relevant to the client today? Revenues will tank, I need to cut cost, where should I start? What happens to my commitments , my objectives, how will I manage?
We all need to trust that the universe is looking out for the collective good of everyone one. When we synchronize ourselves with this truth and operate with patience and resonance, we will see good happening all around and to ourselves too.
Stay safe, stay calm, stay patient, stay peaceful.
