The Heart of Business

“Look at every path closely and deliberately, then ask ourselves this crucial question: Does this path have a heart? If it does, then the path is good. If it doesn’t, it is of no use.” – Carlos Castaneda

Our business is not merely defined by what we do, but also why we do it. In offering up our service to the world by engaging our skills and talents, we are able to reach a greater level of fulfillment not by merely performing a deed, but by creating a change in the world that will build a bridge from the world we face to the world we imagine. As you contemplate the needs of the world around you and direct your actions accordingly, are you simply providing for your own wellbeing or are you crafting ways upon which the rest of the world can be provided for as well?

The greatest services we can provide to the world are the services of the heart. For the heart doesn’t just take, it gives back. It creates a flow from which life can continue, ever expanding, ever growing. Let your business be more than a means for compensation. Let it be a means of communion with the world around you and an expansion into what that world can become.
