Working for Peace

audioThe basis of this post is to make you consider what in life is significant and what does getting the new radio accessory really represent to us

As Einstein once said, “No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness which created it.”
There can be no question that the words we choose and the metaphors we use reinforce our state of consciousness – our view of the world.
If we choose to use war as a metaphor for business, we see others in the business world as not merely “competition”, but actually “combatants”. When we talk about “beating the competition”, we reinforce the view of business as a zero-sum game, in which in order for there to be “winners”, there have to also be “losers”.

We spend more of our waking hours working than engaged in any other activity. Some of us even spend the majority of our waking hours working. If we want to change the world in a significant way, we must do so in the course of our work.
Do you want to create more peace in the world? I know I do.
If you want to create peace in the world, you must first create peace within yourself, your home, your community and, I believe, your business. Consider again the Einstein quote above. Consider again that we spend more of our time involved in business than anything else.

How can one possibly spend all day long dealing in a business world of winners and losers, of beating the competition, and so on, and then expect at the end of the day to truly help create peace in the world?
Is it any wonder our current political leaders don’t seem to really understand how to create peace through any other means than superior firepower, or at least the threat of it? Consider their training ground.
So long as we continue to use military paradigms in business, we will continue to operate at that level of consciousness in all of our relationships – personal, community and international. Until we change that, we will continue to breed world leaders who are driven by nationalistic and ideological pride, rather than human compassion and a desire for mutual understanding.

I find it positively repulsive that businesspeople use the thinking of Sun Tzu and Machiavelli as guides to business. If I could accomplish one thing in my life to truly change the world, it would be to replace every copy of The Art of War on business bookshelves with The Art of Peace and The Prince with The Little Prince.

If we want peace in the world, we must work for it, every minute of every day, in everything we do.
