Business is relationship

The texture and the field between things – the quality of the bond – the amount of safety and intimacy – trust built over time – the flow and respect in communication – these elements are the bedrock of relationship.

To discount the quality of our relationships, to discount those who show up and do the work, to underpay people so our ‘bottom line’ shows a higher profit, this is to invite a future absent loyalty, care and love.

Decades or centuries of doing this – commodifying people, land, care, education – has hollowed out the very things that sustain life.

I might get my fat profit and my empire today. I might get lauded for my success and genius today. My children inherit the side effect of my greed. 

The price for my greed will be paid. Cosmic Accounting is the ultimate arbiter of all record keeping.
