Holding an intention. The delightful mystery of the journey

In the world of business-as-usual we are taught to make goals, plan the budget, design the path forward. We are going here…and this is how we are doing it. 

This is a fools game. To even think we know how we are doing it before hand. To think that the path we want to take is the path we will end up taking.

If a virus so small can teach us anything, it is that nature does not do straight lines. There are no such thing as straight lines, just as there is no such thing as the perfect sphere. Order only exists in partnership with chaos. 

We want the order, the linearity, but refuse to invite the chaos, the zigzag, the delightful mystery of the journey.

To hold an intention, a direction towards, with the fierce love of the steward of this intention, while relinquishing the human constructed plan, instead breathing into the emergence, the next step, not the second or third step, just the very next step, is not a skill we are taught.

This birthing process requires holding, attending to, breathing into, sensing into the edges emerging. Conversing and communing with. 

What we hold as an intention has its own gestation rate. It does not live on our timeline. It has its own timeline.

When we do this we are honouring the life of what we steward, be that an idea, and enterprise, or our own fully formed identity.

About Christine McDougall

CREATING A WORLD WHERE SYNTROPIC ENTERPRISES ARE THE NORM. SYNTROPIC = LEAVING EVERYTHING BETTER

As the Founder and Chief Steward of Syntropic.world – Christine works with leaders and enterprises globally who have a commitment to being the pioneers of enterprise change. Christine has the ability to completely re-imagine business, its role in our world, and its potential for a future for all humans. She experiences a deeper level of truth through applying synergetics (Buckminster Fuller’s anticipatory design science) and the working laws of Universe to enterprise design and human co-ordination. She has a way of articulating this so others can see it as well. Christine questions the most basic assumptions that drive our complex systems and can map that back to what is needed today.
