You, Your Pooh and Visionary Capitalism
Capitalism gets a pretty bad rap as the cause of almost every problem in the world. This is superficial thinking. Socialists and Communists are hardly immune to ego, greed, and corruption.
One of my joy’s as a conscious capitalist is sharing great stories about new and easy to use products that reflect the positive aspects of capitalism.
Within my own spiritually-based business practices, I have found certain forms of understanding to be core to the process of understanding economics in the post-digital age. Most of the Understandings are primarily sensory in nature and though an individual may be inclined towards one form of understanding over another, each form needs to be fully explored in relation to one’s daily Business Practices. Doing what needs to be done in the way we have discussed the teaching “Chop Wood, Carry Water” requires that one understand what needs to be “Understood.”
With few exceptions, each of the “Understandings” relates to how we think. All of these Understandings involve various unique approaches to thought, and some Understandings have very weak connections to each other while others have very strong correlations. These various connections form patterns. For example, a businessperson who is comfortable and skilled in creating friendly environments in social situations may not necessarily be more compassionate, empathetic or provide better customer service than one who is shy and uncommunicative. In the same way, the practitioner who takes time to master a skill like sweeping a floor may learn to solve a complex problem through a different way of thinking. Thus, an individual with a clear, profound and fully developed Understanding in one area may appear to be slow in other forms of Understanding. The essential forms of Understanding for an individual on a spirituality based business model include: the logical-mathematical, music and sound (auditory), linguistic, space, bodily kinesthetic, the laws of nature, interpersonal as well as intrapersonal relationships, and ethical, moral, existential and pragmatic thought. A wise businessperson will have the ability to leverage these understandings as needed just as they did with the nineteen core resources discussed in earlier chapters. A visionary thinker in this concept of patterns is Christopher Alexander, an architect and urban planner who has written extensively on this “pattern language.”
A pattern in the age of “Trump” is for conscious capitalists to create sustainable products that do not stress the earth.
