My business is my isness

Updated: May 26

This just came to me:

My beingness is my business!

I call it my B-ISness, Be-ISness,

or just my ISness,

Then I thought to myself, "Wow, that seems actually profound. What does it mean?"

So I dug a little deeper.

It says that my business is not "working hard." It's about being.

Then I just noticed that business is not spoken the way it's written. It's written "busi-ness" or "busyness"... as in always being busy.

How can you just be when you're always being busy doing? A business being primarily an isness engenders a flow where things seem to get done in grace without me ever having that forceful sense that I have to do stuff I don't want to do to make the business succeed.

It reinforces that the core of a successful business that is truly helpful is my beingness, or isness.

My business is my isness!

Ends and means finally aligned!!! When one is forcing, stressed, "working hard" on their business, the means is fear, forcing, and subtle disguised violence for an ends of a truly helpful business that is of service and is abundant. So fearful means for loving ends... is it just me, or does something about that feel off?

And, when you think about it, if forgiveness is my only function, then my only business is forgiveness. And when I forgive, I am left in a grounded state of peace, which is beingness, which is isness. Thus, in this regard too, my only business is my isness.

And the rest takes care of itself, in divine orchestration. 🪈

PS. My friend Kimberly just saw yet another bit of wisdom hidden in the words: Instead of working hard on your business, "B" centered in your "ISness." The gems never stop revealing themselves!
