Love has its own mysterious ways of being fulfilled. All of us seek fulfilment in some way or other. Some seek it in relationships, others seek it in power, name, fame or making money. But all of seek fulfilment. All, except “love” put you in a “want mode” and not in a “fulfilling mode”. Love is the only mysterious energy which makes you feel fulfilled.
So, in the corporate context, can you bring in love ? Yes, you can. Do what you love and love what you do. If you bring this energy to your work front, then you don’t need a holiday from work for the work itself becomes a holiday.
Love is experienced in a way that you accept people as they are and motivate them to peak their potential. Love makes one enjoy one’s relationship, one’s work and it builds trust in a relationship. Through trust, you accept the weakness and faults of the other, be it your boss or spouse or spouse and learn to love them as they are.
In an organisation, there can be internal enemies. Instead of being stressed out, learn to love them, accept them, make friends with them and transform them. The whole process is out of love, and there is fulfilment. Love gives the power of “direct perception”. In daily or ordinary living, there is no “direct perception”, because perception is through resistance. We resist it through our likes and dislikes. With this background if you operate in the corporate world, you can’t see others objectively.
Understanding the other in your work or at home comes when you see the other “as he is”. Love is not self-love. Self-love is exclusive. Love is always inclusive. When you exclude the other, you are in conflict with the other and hence there is chaos. Team spirit happens in such an “inclusive space”.
———– Swami Sukhabodhananda.
Through Love all that is bitter will be sweet
Through Love all that is copper will be gold
Through Love all dregs will become wine
Through Love all pain will turn to medicine.
