We are blessed to be complex people, so why do we so often work to stifle and minimize that complexity by reducing what parts of ourselves we can share, which opinions can be explored, and which values really matter most to us?
“It is better to strive in one’s own dharma than to succeed in the dharma of another. Nothing is ever lost in following one’s own dharma, but competition in another’s dharma breeds fear and insecurity.”
— Bhagavad Gita 3.35
Eknath Easwaran translation
I believe that building a stronger future depends heavily on inviting people into their own complexity.
It’s not just that we take time to get still, but that we delve into the infinity of the silence.
It’s not just that we pursue our fitness, but that we align our fitness with values beyond the production of desire.
It’s not just that we hope for equity, but that we engage critically in how choices we make design our lives and organizations for equity — or not.
My views are my own; yours are yours. Let’s stay in touch?
