“All of those for whom authentic transformation has deeply unseated their souls must, I believe, wrestle with the profound moral obligation to shout from the heart-perhaps quietly and gently, with tears of reluctance; perhaps with fierce fire and angry wisdom; perhaps with slow and careful analysis; perhaps by unshakable public example-but authenticity always and absolutely carries a demand and duty: you must speak out, to the best of your ability, and shake the spiritual tree, and shine your headlights into the eyes of the complacent. You must let that radical realization rumble through your veins and rattle those around you.”
Ken Wilber

The ‘Writing on the wall’ BS

n

Nature seems to be taking it’s course. The beautiful thing is that it always does – we just don’t pay attention very well. I am not impressed with people who look back in a time of crisis and talk about ‘the writing on the wall’ – it was there for everyone to see. These people are parasites – and probably only feeding the next round of crisis. The writing is always on the wall – the question is what can we do to read it every living moment?

What is wrong with contemporary business models? What is wrong with financial institutions? What is the wrong with VC’s? Nothing and these are really uninteresting questions – because they make us look back at what has come and gone. How can business models be improved? How can financial institutions improve? How can VC’s improve? How can I as an individual improve? These are tough questions – not because of the answers – they are already ‘written on the wall’ (and have been for a long time) – but because of the level of commitment that is required to follow through with them.

These thoughts were provoked by:

breathe…

breathe…

breathe…

Exactly!
