A Quote by Stephen R. Covey on assumptions, mind, body, heart, and spirit

I have also found that by making four simple assumptions in our lives we can immediately begin leading a more balanced, integrated, powerful life. They are simple–one for each part of our nature–but I promise you that if you do them consistently, you will find a new wellspring of strength and integrity to draw on when you need it most.

1) For the body–assume you've had a heart attack; now live accordingly.

2) For the mind–assume the half-life of your profession is two years; now prepare accordingly.

3) For the heart–assume everything you say about another, they can overhear; now speak accordingly.

4) For the spirit–assume you have a one-on-one visit with your Creator every quarter; now live accordingly.

Stephen Covey (1932 -)

A Quote by Timothy H. Warneka on somatics, body, mind body, spirtuality, embodied, leadership, and earth

"A basic, albeit often overlooked fact of leadership is that we all exist

in the physical realm. Each of us comes into this life with a body. We live

and die in our bodies. What happens to us either before our births or after

our deaths is the subject for philosophies and religions. The fact remains

that, while we walk the Earth, everything that happens to us is an embodied

experience. Though obvious, this truth has been completely ignored by

most leadership strategies. Instead, those strategies have focused almost

exclusively on thoughts and ideas, as if people were simply heads floating

around in space."

A Quote by Ken Wilber on conscious, business, self, culture, nature, body, mind, spirit, and integral

Conscious business--business that is conscious of inner and outer worlds--would therefore be business that takes into account body, mind, and spirit in self, culture, and nature.  Put differently, conscious business would be mindful of the way that the spectrum of consciousness operates in the Big Three worlds of self and culture and nature.  This means very specifically that integral business leadership would use the tools that have been developed to best navigate and master self, culture, and world.

A Quote by Deepak Chopra on who am i, question, questions, role, roles, and body

Who am I? is the only question worth asking and the only one never answered. It is your destiny to play an infinity of roles, but these roles are not yourself. The spirit is non-local, but it leaves behind a fingerprint, which we call a body. A wizard does not believe himself to be a local event dreaming of a larger world. A wizard is a world dreaming of local events.

A Quote by Ramana Maharshi on birth, death, dying, born, self, body, thought, thoughts, free, fear, and freedom

If a man considers that he is born, he cannot avoid the fear of death. Let him find out if he has been born or if the Self has any birth. He will discover that the Self always exists, that the body that is born resolves itself into thought and that the emergence of thought is the root of all mischief. Find from where thoughts emerge. Then you will be able to abide in the ever-present inmost Self and be free from the idea of birth or the fear of death.

A Quote by Zen Buddhism on zen, buddha, buddhism, love, play, mind, body, excellence, grace, work, working, and playing

The person who is a master in the art of living makes little distinction between their work and their play, their labor and their leisure, their mind and their body, their education and their recreation, their love and their religion.  They hardly know which is which. They simply pursue their vision of excellence and grace in whatever they do, leaving others to decide whether they are working or playing. To them, they are always doing both.

A Quote by Gangi on embrace life, body, mind, and spirit

Embrace your life.  Honor it with all your might by trying to do all that is in the highest interest of the body, mind, spirit that allow you to be.  Forget the cures.  Find the cause and truly live.
