Gratitude and Collective Prosperity

 Gratitude and Collective Prosperity

How do we elevate collectively for a brighter existence?

Hello Beloved Community,

As my team and I reflect upon the past year and greet 2014 we would like to express our sincere gratitude for your presence in the world and within ours at Global Round Table Leadership.

Winter is a powerful season for reflection and visioning. In the conversations I have had already this year I keep hearing a steady tone.  Many of us are feeling more access to the potential of our collective greatness and great goodness.  A veil seems to have lifted.  The universal call for us to rise in our collective capacities is within our grasp NOW.

As we are moving robustly in the world, let us take a moment to cherish the foundation of what it means to be human beings.   How can we meet ourselves and each other from the sacredness of our humanity, equality, and collective wisdom?  When we recognize and meet each other from this place, we come from the root of our our innate wholeness. We elevate this life not only for ourselves and the person next to us, but for the entire whole; we become a thriving ecosystem.

We invite you to sit at the Table of shared leadership and collaboration with us in pondering some questions to inspire our daily practices.  We offer these GRTL “table legs” in support of our creativity and capacity for collective prosperity.

The first table leg is humanity, our very essence.  Are you coming to the table valuing every person you come in contact with, from the genuine core of who you are?  How can you bring greater humanity into your personal and professional life?

The second table leg is wholeness.  We are, in essence, sufficient and complete, even while we may experience insufficiency and fracture.  Each of us is whole individually, and together we form a collective whole.  Further, we are part of a larger universal whole comprised of the life forms, systems and mystery within which we live.  What are some ways that you can practice and embody wholeness?

The third table leg is equality.  To exist as equals is to come together in our humanity, original gifts and natural talents before relating through the roles, expertise, status and hierarchies that define much of human society.  Do you relate first and foremost from the equal capacity to impact and learn from each other? How do you treat others in every moment?  In joining as equal learning partners we may grow and learn from our collective wisdom, which we possess together.

The fourth table leg is our collective wisdom.  Part of our natural endowment as humans is a primordial collective wisdom that we carry within us.  While each of us possesses this wisdom individually, it is transformed and amplified when we come together collectively and experience the great strength and genius of our natural diversity.  How can we elevate ourselves and each other for a brighter existence?

Thank you for your essential place in this world.  We here at Global Round Table Leadership are so appreciative for the connection we all share.  Sending blessings, joy, light, and grace to each and every one of you for a magical winter season and a radiant and collectively empowered 2014!

Last but not least, I leave you with a link to a song, which I find with the beginning of the New Year impeccable in its timing.  At Melissa’s daughter’s holiday concert in December the children sang the timeless song from Rent, titled “Seasons Of Love”. Five Hundred Twenty Five Thousand Six Hundred minutes.  How do you a measure a year?
