Melhores citações

  • It is sometimes very hard to “find the love” when trying to make deadlines, work the numbers, and pay the bills. But Bennington makes the important point that the only way to “find the love” is to be the love, wherever we are and whatever we’re doing.

  • Proselytizing won’t inspire them, but your authentic presence will. This is because the Love that soars through a mind connected to both wisdom and compassion will always demonstrate the truest of all spiritual truths: grace, not rank, is our real power.

  • That said, when selfishness is allowed to grow like a loose weed in the mind, the result is that you get tangled up in judgment and defensiveness based on whether every situation you encounter works for you only.

  • Love is no longer seen as just some soft, gooey thing to be relegated to only some aspects of life, but rather the meaning and essence of life itself. The path of the heart is relevant to everything.

  • This cuts off your ability to see the bigger picture and makes collaborating in teams far more difficult. In other words, too much “self” creates a blind spot that will eventually damage your reputation at work.

Part One

FIRE YOUR sELF

Whatever is true is eternal, and cannot change or be changed. Spirit is therefore unalterable because it is already perfect, but the mind can elect what it chooses to serve.

(T-1.V.5:1–2)

You have not only been fully created, but you have also been created perfect. There is no emptiness in you.

(T-2.I.1:3–4)

PERFECTION IS NOT A MATTER OF DEGREE

When my first son was eighteen months old we had him tested for autism. He was slow on motor skills, had troubling sensory issues, and despite the fact that his playmates were already stringing together basic sentences, the only word he could muster was " Hi ." It was literally all he would say, over and over again, all day long.

Hi.

Hi.

Hi.

Out of answers, eventually our pediatrician sent us to a psychologist who ran a number of tests.

Does he accept help solving puzzles?

Can he transition to new activities without clinging to the old ones?

Does he get overly upset if his toys are taken away?

There are few things more distressing than waiting helplessly on the sidelines for a diagnosis of your child. And yet, after weeks of worrying, we were told that our son was going to be fine.

He appears interested in developing relationships, said the psychologist. Children with autism struggle with interpersonal skills, and in extreme cases they fail to see the difference between a person and an object like a chair.

As a career coach, this struck me as somewhat ironic since it rather fittingly described the majority of my clients’ issues at work. While I was obviously relieved that the appointment went well, I admit I left that day thinking about what a fascinating experiment it would be to give professionals the same kind of test in the workplace that my son had just received in this doctor’s office.

How do we collaborate on puzzles?

How do we transition to new experiences without clinging to old ones?

How do we react when our toys are taken away?

It’s strange that the absence of meaningful interaction is considered a medical condition in children but often viewed as a strength in adults. If you’ve ever been treated by a boss or coworker with no more consideration than the average office chair, then you know exactly what I’m talking about here. To succeed in business requires the kind of thick skin and resolve that can often come across as emotionally neutered and yet anything less, we are told, is soft.

What’s worse is that we actually believe it.

This has led to work cultures where colleagues have a tendency to view each other less as human beings and more as objects along the path to a goal. Thankfully, there has been a valiant effort to right the ship with the relatively new field of emotional intelligence — an awareness of when feelings are driving behavior versus reason — and yet EQ (as it’s often called) isn’t the whole story. While there’s no question that EQ is required to form long-term harmonious relationships in all aspects of life including work, there is another form of intelligence that is just as valuable and yet not nearly as well-known, namely spiritual intelligence or SQ.

If the idea of spiritual intelligence is new to you, SQ pioneer Cindy Wigglesworth describes it fittingly as "the ability to behave with wisdom and compassion, while maintaining inner and outer peace, regardless of the situation."¹ Throughout this book we will be exploring what it means to bring SQ to work via the extraordinary lessons of A Course in Miracles, but first I’d like to zoom out and offer some context for why spiritual intelligence matters within a business setting at all.

Enter Stephen Covey

Like millions of professionals around the world, you may be familiar with author Stephen Covey as a result of his most popular book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. While Covey was obviously not the first or the only person to develop a structured path to career success or emotional maturity, his work is uniquely important for our purposes because he succinctly describes it as leading from dependence (relying on others to meet our needs) to independence (taking responsibility for meeting our own needs) to interdependence (collaborating to resolve mutual needs). Because Covey and many others have written much on these subjects, I won’t go into more detail here except to say that EQ is precisely what lays the groundwork for
