WHAT MAKES PEOPLE HAPPY?…AND, WHATEVER DOES THAT HAVE TO DO WITH SHOES?

There has been a ground swell on the Internet to send old shoes to the White House showing support for Iraqi anger, following the Iraqi journalist shoe-throwing incident. US President George W. Bush used his finely-honed skills of side-stepping…this time to avoid physical injury. Is it possible the mystery shoes may be a statement to George W. Bush about how the country feels about US foreign policy?

ACTING ON EPIPHANY

Denise Cerreta’s business model at One World Everyone Eats is more about giving of herself and her business -than taking. She says when she told her first customer, “Just pay me what you think the meal is worth… it was like my heart expanded and I realized my true purpose in life.” (epiphany – wikipedia)

Five years ago, Denise awoke with a new awareness that the patients she had been treating in her acupuncture clinic…“were not sick, they were lonely.” That revelation prompted her to open a daring and innovative restaurant in Salt Lake City.

CONSCIOUSNESS TIPPING POINT

Since the US Presidential election, I have been contemplating that moment in history when your country exercised their Free Will and made a statement for change by choosing Barak Obama as President-elect.

Many people have since focused on the shattering of the ethnic glass ceiling as the most significant outcome of this election. But, I think, there is something else, more profound, and of greater global significance, that happened. To use Malcolm Gladwells term, I think the historic implication of this event is that we hit the “tipping point” on Consciousness.

TOTAL TRUST IN THE CUSTOMER

Can you imagine a shopping experience where the owner tells you to touch everything, ask lots of questions, take your time, have a tea or coffee, and ring up your own purchases! Well, on one of my most unique shopping experiences, I heard all of that.

Hand Works is an eclectic array of mostly local artisan items displayed in a beautiful century home in the tiny village of Bloomfield, Prince Edward County, Ontario. The trip to Bloomfield is, of itself, well worth the experience-just to meet Tammy.

INTRODUCING THE CONCEPT OF ENLIGHTENORS

Today, I would like to introduce you to a very unusual “Enlightenor(tm) “…Art the Tibetan Lama Llama! – and Art’s creator, Karen Manganye of Avant Garde Art Studio in Spruce Grove, Alberta Canada.

“I have an Art the Tibetan Lama Llama, seated in the lotus position. Although the story for Art is not complete, he, like all of my other sculptures are made mostly from all recycled garbage.

SOUND VALUE & MEANING VALUE

Many things struck me in your story about Carly, including her song, My Angel Mom. Angels are very special to me. I included the same line, “You are an angel” in a song I wrote long ago.

There is both a sound value and a meaning value in each word we use. Hence the power in a well crafted poem, or famous lines such as “… all men are created equal”, or “In the beginning was the Word.”

What we say (or write) every day can be meaningless and wasted, or it can have impact.

VIEWING THE CONSCIOUS BODY

I created the Body Conscious Guide(tm) to inspire a dialogue about states of Consciousness – a road map of sorts - from lowest to highest energy. I believe our lowest state of consciousness and darkest night is the state of Hopelessness, where there is hardly enough energy to even imagine going on with life. Progressively, there are increasing energy reserves at Sadness, moving up to Shame, Guilt, Grief, Fear, Doubt, and Anger.

WHAT IS NETWORK MARKETING?

Our Thursday blogs are dedicated to a discussion of the network marketing industry, what it is, and what it may offer as a model for the future economy. We welcome comments and debate!

Network marketing is a six decade old industry which, in terms of the life of an industry, makes it not much more mature than a teenager – and like most teenagers – it is incredibly misunderstood. It is a model we want to pay a great deal of attention to because we think it has a great deal to offer for emerging marketing methods.

Fundamental to understanding the concept of the Law of Attraction, is to understand the importance of personal responsibility. Once one appreciates that “all that is” comes from a higher power within, and your responsibility is to tap into that power, anything is possible.

Finding The Tao Of Business Consciousness

Monday, December 8th, 2008

I’m honored to welcome author and speaker, Judy Berg of British Columbia to Thinking Big Works.

Since retiring from a top communications management position with the Canadian government, she and her husband Jim have built Well Naturally International, a successful network marketing company with Nikken, Inc. and traveled the world.

We have assisted Judy and Jim for two years in the creation of her personal development seminar business, Soul Abundant. I highly recommend her current book, Imagine Your Soul Abundant.

Judy and I are currently writing the book for enlightened businesses, The Tao of Conscious Business: Global Coherence Marketing, which we’ll explore in this blog. Join our conversation. Please share your wisdom and comments.
