“We are perceivers. We are an awareness; we are not objects; we have no solidity. We are boundless. The world of objects and solidity is a way of making our passage on earth convenient. It is only a description that was created to help us. We, or rather our reason, forget that the description is only a description and thus we entrap the totality of ourselves in a vicious circle from which we rarely emerge in our lifetime … So, in essence, the world that your reason wants to sustain is the world created by a description and its dogmatic and inviolable rules, which the reason learns to accept and defend … from now on you should let yourself perceive whether the description is upheld by your reason or by your will.”
Carlos Castaneda

Bryan Ungard – Deliberately Developmental Organisations

n

This came to me via Richard Bartlett and:

  1. Listening to it while reading Christopher Alexander’s A Timeless Way of Building feels almost eerie … as if Bryan is looking over my shoulder and re-whispering the book in my ear recontextualized from the architecture of buildings to the architecture of organizations.
  2. I felt a deep sense of relief and gratitude and a strengthening of trust in the world … that this view is taking root in an actual organization.
  3. I appreciated a sense of grounding coming from Bryan, rooted, I believe, in the fact that he is speaking from EXPERIENCE … that he’s attempted to apply, made mistakes, adjusted course … this is living knowledge.
  4. I love that there is a title “Chief Purpose Officer” and that someone like Bryan occupies it.

Thank you, Bryan, for this heartfelt & thoughtful manifestation of purpose.
