Ya Somos / We already Are

Ya Somos. Y Somos Perfectos, Bellos y Completos.

Y qué es lo que falta entonces? : Falta que dejemos de interferir con nuestra mente, con nuestras certezas, con nuestros manuales y recetas para vivir.  Para nosotros y para otros.

Y así crear contextos de posibilidad para que lo que siempre estuvo allí aparezca: Nuestro Propósito Singular con la música de Alegría Profunda que trae consigo, y la Humildad de amorosamente poder reconocer dónde estamos. Para así comenzar el viaje espiritual que es dejar ir todo lo que no nos pertenece, lo que no responde a nuestra esencia y conectarnos con lo sagrado en nuestras vidas.

Animémonos a sacarnos el traje plateado y des-cubrir nuestro oro…A lo que estamos llamados.

We already are. And we are perfect, beautiful and complete.

And what is missing then? We need to stop interfering with our minds, with our certainties, with our manuals and recipes to live. For us and for others.

And so create contexts of possibility so that what was always there appears: Our Singular Purpose with the music of Deep Joy that brings with it, and Humility to lovingly recognize where we are. In order to begin the spiritual journey that is to let go of everything that does not belong to us, which does not respond to our essence and connect with the sacred in our lives.

Let us encourage ourselves to remove the silver suit and uncover our gold … To which we are called

thEncuentro con el equipo de María Auxiliadora. Mañana 29 de Octubre.

Y todo empezó el día de María un 24 de Mayo de este año.

Colegio que me vió crecer y en el cual aprendí la generosidad porque recibí gratuitamente lo que en ese momento mi familia no podía pagar. Y recibí un sello en el alma que me dio la resiliencia para florecer y encontrar sentido aún en medio de las mayores dificultades.

Y otra vez, en otro ámbito, de nuevo, con Ray Dalton, de Instituto de Estudios Integrales que fuera mi profesor y con quien quise siempre trabajar. En 2004 no pude y 12 años después se está dando y justamente en esta situación.

A Company is its People – Una Compañía es su Gente

circulo 2

To me a Company is not something abstract, but its people. And as long as there are people I feel proud and honor to work with, to share a common vision and sense of purpose, then I am proud of being part of such Company. / Para mí una Compañía no es algo abstracto, sino su gente. Y mientras que haya gente con la cual me siento orgullosa y honrada de trabajar, de compartir una visión en común y sentido de propósito, entonces me siento orgullosa de ser parte de dicha Compañía.

Amor y Alegría / Love & Joy

1238288_419770731468063_1478320825_nWithout Love…What for? Sin Amor…Para qué??

But where is the Love? Pero donde está el Amor?

In JOY. En la Alegría.

And viceversa. Y viceversa.

Something more than SUCCESS – Algo más que EXITO : Working Out Loud / Trabajar en Voz Alta

John Stepper
John Stepper

John Stepper not only speaks and teachs about WORKING OUT LOUD but also he turns it into reality in at least one global organisation with a very positive outcome for the organisation and for people in it, and it is easily replicable for any organization / community.

John no sólo habla y enseña sobre este concepto sino que además lo convierte en realidad en al menos una organización global con un resultado muy positivo no sólo para la organización sino para la gente en ella, y es fácilmente replicable para cualquier organización / comunidad.

“Working out loud starts with making your work visible in such a way that it might help others. When you do that – when you work in a more open, connected way – you can build a purposeful network that makes you more effective and provides access to more opportunities.”

“Trabajar en voz alta comienza con hacer visible tu trabajo de tal manera que pueda ayudar a otros. Cuando hacés eso – cuando trabajás de un modo más abierto y conectado – podés construir una red de trabajo con propósito que te hace más efectivo y te da acceso á más oportunidades.”

elements wolSo simple and so amazing. We can observe in his proposal that the pillars are: Relations, Generosity, Sharing, Learning, Habits, Discipline, Sense of Belonging to Something Bigger than Us, Converting Tacit Knowledge in Explicit Knowledgement, Leadership.

Tan simple y tan increíble. Podemos observar en su propuesta de que los pilares son: Relaciones, Generosidad, Compartir, aprendizaje, hábitos, disciplina, sentido de pertenencia a algo más grande que nosotros, en la conversión de conocimiento tácito en explícito y Conocimiento, Liderazgo.

“YOU HAVE DONE YOUR BEST, AND THAT’s SUCCESS”

JORNADA FILOSOFIA UCES 2014 – Homenaje a un maestro: Ricardo Maliandi

Ayer fue la Jornada de UCES y homenaje a un maestro Ricardo Maliandi

Fue un día donde nos encontramos la comunidad de filósofos – maestro, discípulos y aprendices, a celebrar. Porque básicamente la jornada fue una fiesta.

homenaje 5

Celebramos entre otras cosas la generosidad de estas personas que vuelcan su saber y están comprometidas con mantener la llama encendida, la llamita. Y nos convocan a ser sus discípulos. Y acá, a este rol, a este servicio, a esta respuesta a la llamada venimos traidos de manos de la ALEGRIA. Porque eso se respira en los claustros de Filosofía UCES: ALEGRIA. Y desde ahí surge nuestro poder de accionar.

 

ALEGRIA, pasiones ALEGRES. Y Amor por la Filosofía. Y agradecimiento, mucho. Y de nuevo, alegría.

A continuación iremos compartiendo los take-away de la jornada y de nuestro viaje para convertirnos en lo que ya somos: FILOSOFOS.

Gracias Maestro Ricardo Maliandi por encender en nosotros la llamita y por su servicio e inspiración y legado. Como ud. dice el tiempo no pasa si se lo vive intensamente y haciendo lo que uno ama.

La virtud ciudadana es lograr disposición del carácter – aprender a elegir – hábito de elección = virtud

Derecho universal a la educación. Derecho universal a pensar libremente. Apertura a lo nuevo. Generar lo comun desde la diferencia y CON la diferencia NO A COSTA de las diferencias (detalle clave)

La vida es un relato en busca de un narrador. Nacemos siento dichos por otros y nos pasamos la vida buscando ser sujetos de la locución y no ser meramente dichos por otros

No se va a la facultad a consumir, se va a aprender

El tema está en resistir con inteligencia responsable.

Formarnos como sujetos abiertos a lo que acontece cuidando la alteridad, aumentando la potencia de actuar

Qué privilegio que hayamos coincidido en este espacio tiempo !

Finding meaning in our work – encontrando sentido en nuestro trabajo – & HR Role – y el rol de HR

David Ulrich teaching us….enseñándonos

Responsability comes with power – Responsabilidad implica Poder

In any situation we live there is a first question: who is responsible for this? If we answer that question with any other word than “I” , then we are giving away our inner power to others, to circumstances, etc and we are, implicitily reforcing them, empowering them.

If we can in any situation respond, I am responsible. Then journey starts. We have the power to change it.  We are not victims any more but owners of our destiny.

Always we are choosing: Are we giving our power away or are we  using it? Recover your power back. Declare yourself responsible.

Have you already choosen?  Who has your power? Who is responsible?

responsibility

AND / OR VICEVERSA!!!!!!!!?????

En cualquier situación que vivimos hay una primera pregunta: ¿quién es el responsable de esto? Si la respuesta a esa pregunta es cualquier otra palabra que no sea “YO”, entonces estamos regalando nuestro poder interior a los demás, las circunstancias, etc, e implicitament estamos reforzándolos,  dándoles el poder.Si somos capaces de responder en cualquier situación : YO soy responsable. Entonces comienza el viaje. Tenemos el poder para cambiarlo. No somos más víctimas, sino los dueños de nuestro destino.Siempre estamos eligiendo: ¿Estamos dando nuestro poder a los demás o lo estamos usando? Recuperá tu poder. Declarate responsable.¿Ya elegiste? ¿Quién tiene el poder? ¿Quién es responsable?

Principles of Spiritual Leadership

From “Getting into Action Materials” The Pachamama

Imageas we enter the third millennium, we are urgently called to action in two distinct capacities: to serve as hospice workers to a dying culture, and to serve as midwives to an emerging culture. These two tasks are required simultaneously; they call upon us to move through the world with an open heart-meaning we are present for the grief and the pain-as we experiment with new visions and forms for the future. Both are needed. The key is to root our actions in both intelligence and compassion-a balance of head and heart that combines the finest human qualities in our leadership for cultural transformation.

The first principle is that the motivation underlying our activism for social change must be transformed from anger and despair to compassion and love. This is a major challenge for the environmental movement, for example. This is not to deny the legitimacy of noble anger or outrage at injustice of any kind. Rather, we seek to work for love, rather than against evil. We need to adopt compassion and love as our foundational intention, and do whatever inner work is required to implement this intention. Even if our outer actions remain the same, there is a major difference in results if our underlying intention supports love rather than defeating evil. The Dalai Lama says, “A positive future can never emerge from the mind of anger and despair.”

The second principle is a classical spiritual tenet, though challenging to practice. It is the principle of non-attachment to outcome. To the extent that we are attached to the results of our work, we rise and fall with our success and failures, which is a path to burnout. Failures are inevitable, and successes are not the deepest purpose of our work. This requires a deepening of faith in the intrinsic value of our work-beyond the concrete results. To the extent that our actions are rooted in pure intention, they have a reverberation far beyond the concrete results of the actions themselves.

In our workshops, we have had several environmental leaders react strongly to this principle. As one lawyer put it, “How can I possibly go into court and not be attached to the outcome? You bet I care who wins and who loses! If I am not attached to the outcome, I’ll just get bulldozed!” His words underscore the poignant challenge of implementing these principles in practice. Yet he keeps coming back to our retreats, and he actively seeks ways to love his adversaries. He acknowledged that although it is difficult to love some of his adversaries, one way he can do it is to love them for creating the opportunity for him to become a strong voice for truth and protection of the natural environment.

The third principle is that your integrity is your protection. The idea here is that if your work has integrity, that will tend to protect you from negative circumstances. For example, there are practices for making yourself invisible to the negative energy that comes toward you in adversarial situations. It’s a kind of psychic aikido, where you internally step out of the way of negative energy, and you make yourself energetically transparent so it passes right through you. But this only works if your work is rooted in integrity.

The fourth principle is related: the need for unified integrity in both means and ends. Integrity in means cultivates integrity in the fruit of one’s work; you cannot achieve a noble goal using ignoble means. Some participants in our workshops engage regularly in political debates, testimony, and hearings. We have them experimenting with consciousness techniques for transmuting challenging energy into compassion and love-right there in the hearing room. Early indications are that this is helpful in defusing charged psychological situations, and reducing tension in heated debates.

The fifth principle is don’t demonize your adversaries. People respond to arrogance with their own arrogance, which leads to polarization. The ideal is to constantly entertain alternative points of view so that you move from arrogance to inquiry, and you then have no need to demonize your opponents. This is hard to do, as we often feel very certain about what we think we know, and the injustices we see. As John Stewart Mill said, “In all forms of human debate, both parties tend to be correct in what they affirm, and wrong in what they deny.” Going into an adversarial situation we can be aware of the correctness of what we are affirming, but there is usually a kernel of truth in what is being affirmed by our opponent-however small. We need to be especially mindful about what we deny, because it is often where our blind spots will be.

The sixth principle is to love thy enemy. Or if you can’t do that, at least have compassion for them. This means moving from an ‘us-them’ consciousness to a ‘we’ consciousness. It means recognizing that I am the logger: when I write these principles of spiritual activism and publish them in this newsletter, I give the command to the logger to fell the trees, to produce the pulp, to produce this paper so that I can publish these spiritual principles about how best to save the trees. It is seeing the full circle of our interconnected complicity, and discovering all the problems of humanity in our own hearts and our own lives. We are not exempt and we are not different. The ‘them’ that we talk about is also us. The practice of loving our adversaries is obviously challenging in situations with people whose views and methodologies are radically opposed to ours, but that is where the real growth occurs.

The seventh and eighth principles are a bit contradictory.

 The seventh is that your work is for the world rather than for you. We serve on behalf of others and not for our own satisfaction or benefit. We’re sowing seeds for a cherished vision to become a future reality, and our fulfillment comes from the privilege of being able to do this work. This is the traditional understanding of selfless service.

But then the eighth principle is that selfless service is a myth. Because in truly serving others, we are also served. In giving we receive. This is important to recognize as well, so we don’t fall into the trap of pretentious service to others’ needs and develop a false sense of selflessness or martyrdom.

The ninth principle is: do not insulate yourself from the pain of the world. We must allow our hearts to be broken-broken open-by the pain of the world. As that happens, as we let that pain in, we become the vehicles for transformation. If we block the pain, we are actually preventing our own participation in the world’s attempt to heal itself. As we allow our hearts to break open, the pain that comes is the medicine by which the Earth heals itself, and we become the agents of that healing. This is a vital principle that is quite alien to our usual Western ways of thinking.

The tenth principle is: what you attend to, you become. If you constantly attend to battles, you become embattled. On the other hand, if you constantly give love, you become loving. We must choose wisely what we attend to, because it shapes and defines us deeply.

The eleventh principle is to rely on faith. This is not some Pollyanna-ish naivete, as many “realists” would interpret it. Rather it entails cultivating a deep trust in the unknown, recognizing the presence of “higher” or “divine” forces at work that we can trust completely without knowing their precise agendas or workings. It means invoking something beyond the traditional scientific world view. It implies that there are invisible forces that we can draw upon and engage, firstly by knowing they are there; secondly, by asking or yearning for them to support us-or more precisely, asking them to allow us to serve on their behalf. Faith is understood not as blind adherence to any set of beliefs, but as a knowing from experience and intuition about intrinsic universal principles beyond our direct observation, and relying upon these principles, whatever they are, to support us in creating what we aspire to create. This actually brings great relief when we realize it really isn’t up to us to figure out all the steps to manifest our unfolding vision, because we are participants in a larger cosmic will. Nevertheless, it is our job to discover what our unique gift is-our unique role-and for each person to give their gift as skilfully and generously as possible, while trusting that the rest will all work itself out.

Finally, the twelfth principle is that love creates the form. As Stephen Levine says, “The heart crosses the abyss that the mind creates.” It is the mind that gives rise to the apparent fragmentation of the world, while the heart can operate at depths unknown to the mind. So, if we begin imagining with our hearts, and work from a place of yearning as well as thinking, then we develop an unprecedented effectiveness that is beyond our normal ways of understanding because it doesn’t have to do with thinking. When we bring the fullness of our humanity to our leadership, we can be far more effective in creating the future we want.

 

Vision

Vision is PRESENT. The vision is in PRESENT and is fully possible based in our COMMITMENT.

Let’s start to BE our VISION. What’s your vision?

Visión es PRESENTE.  La visión es es en el presente. y es totalmente posible basada en nuestro COMPROMISO. Empecemos a SER nuestra VISION.  Cual es tu visión?

Steve-Jobs-Quotes-On-Life-Your-Time-Is-Limited-12

” Tu tiempo es limitado, por lo tanto no desperdicies tu vida viviendo la vida de otro. No te dejes atrapar por el dogma, que es vivir del resultado de lo que otros piensan. No dejes que el ruido de las opiniones de otros desdibujen tu voz interior. Y lo más importante: tené el coraje de seguir tu corazón y tu intuición. Ellos ya saben de alguna manera en lo que vos realmente querés ser. Todo lo demás es secundario. “

Voz – Voice

La voz un camino de apertura interior en cualquier lugar donde estemos. Los seres humanos valoramos tener “voz” , tener voz y voto se dice en español, poder opinar, ser escuchado, saber que participamos de algo más grande que nosotros mismos, un proyecto, una familia, una comunidad, una organización….

The voice an opening path inside us wherever we are. Human beings value to have  “voice”, have a say, be heard, knowing that we participate in something bigger than ourselves, a project, a family, a community, a organization ….

Las organizaciones están frente a un desafío importante: Atreverse a darle voz a sus empleados y clientes y escucharlos. El mundo está cambiando vertiginosamente y vamos hacia un cambio donde el nuevo camino es la colaboración. Lo social se viene, de la mano de la Voz.

Organizations are facing a major challenge: daring to give voice to their employees and customers and listen to them. The world is changing rapidly and we are going to change where the new road is collaboration.
The social is coming. Handled by Voice.

What about YOUR VOICE? Qué pasa con TU VOZ?

Accountability: Hacernos responsables

La propuesta es:  Hacernos responsables.  Observar la vida que tenemos y decidir si es la vida que queremos tener. Si estamos gastando la vida en lo que tiene mayor sentido para nosotros, si estamos tomando las acciones que nos llevan a ser quienes queremos ser, si nuestra vida está siendo gastada en lo que queremos y cómo queremos.
Si nosotros no elegimos, alguien más ya lo está haciendo: la vida se gasta sola. Si nosotros no elegimos en qué y cómo gastarla, estamos eligiendo darle a otro el poder de elegir en qué y cómo gastar nuestra vida….Y allí entra hacernos responsables. Estamos donde queremos estar y con quien queremos estar y cómo queremos estar. Y si no es así, llegó el momento de preguntarnos….´Tiempo de preguntas….Tiempo de acción….

Salgamos de las conversaciones que nos justifican o entretienen o sacan de foco: esta vida que vivimos es así porque nosotros la estamos eligiendo. Si eso no se cumple, pues llegó el momento de cambiar.
 
No de TRATAR DE CAMBIAR….CAMBIAR. HACERNOS RESPONSABLES
 
Qué pasaría si nos hiciéramos responsables??
 
The proposal is: To assume the responsibility. Observe the life we ​​have and decide if it is the life we want. If we are spending life in what makes the most sense for us, if we are taking actions that lead us to be who we want to be, if our life is being spent on what we want and how we want.
If we do not choose, someone else is already doing it on our behalf : life is spent alone.  If we do not choose what and how to spend it, we are choosing to give to another the power to choose what and how to spend our lives …. And there comes to take responsibility.  We are where we want to be and with whom we want to be and how we want to be. And if that’s not the case , it’s time to question ourselves…Time of questioning….Time for actionGet out of the conversations that justify us or entertain us  take out of focus: The way our life is has been choosen by us.  If that is not the case, then it’s time to change. Not TRYING TO CHANGE …. CHANGE. take responsibility.

What would happen if we became responsible?
