A Quote by Carolyn Taylor on growth, business, innovation, and strategy

A strategy of rapid global growth requires a different culture than one of focused innovation, and there are a number of levers (including succession) that can be pulled to align the culture to the needs of the future strategy. Unfortunately, most organizations see their culture as an impediment to the implementation of their strategy; very few see it as a competitive advantage.

A Quote by Neale Donald Walsch on relationships, opportunity, life, growth, self, potential, and love

If you both agree at a conscious level that the purpose of your relationship is to create an opportunity, not an obligation—an opportunity for growth, for full Self expression, for lifting your lives to their highest potential, for healing every false thought or small idea you ever had about you, and for ultimate reunion with God through the communion of your two souls—if you take that vow instead of the vows you’ve been taking—the relationship has begun on a very good note.

A Quote by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe on passion, growth, wisdom, transformation, enlightenment, and bly

Tell a wise person, or else keep silent, / because the mass man will mock it right away. / I praise what is truly alive, / what longs to be burned to death. / [] In the calm water of the love-nights, / where you were begotten, where you have begotten, / a strange feeling comes over you, / when you see the silent candle burning. / [] Now you are no longer caught in the obsession with darkness, / and a desire for higher love-making sweeps you upward. / [] Distance does not make you falter. / Now, arriving in magic, flying, / and finally, insane for the light, / you are the butterfly and you are gone. / And so long as you haven't experienced this: to die and so to grow, / you are only a troubled guest on the dark earth.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749 - 1832)

A Quote by John Welwood on love, relationship, awakening, awareness, healing, soul, potential, growth, consciousness, and expansion

Awareness born of love is the only force that can bring healing and renewal.  Out of our love for another person, we become more willing to let our old identities wither and fall away, and enter a dark night of the soul, so that we may stand naked once more in the presence of the great mystery that lies at the core of our being.  This is how love ripens us -- by warming us from within, inspiring us to break out of our shell, and lighting our way through the dark passage to new birth.

A Quote by John Welwood on love, relationship, soul, heart, connection, spirit, growth, and transcendence

A soul connection is a resonance between two people who respond to the essential beauty of each other's individual natures, behind their facades, and who connect on this deeper level.  This kind of mutual recognition provides the catalyst for a potent alchemy.  It is a sacred alliance whose purpose is to help both partners discover and realize their deepest potentials.  While a heart connection lets us appreciate those we love just as they are, a soul connection opens up a further dimension -- seeing and loving them for who they could be, and for who we could become under their influence.  This means recognizing that we both have an important part to play in helping each other become more fully who we are....A soul connection not only inspires us to expand, but also forces us to confront whatever stands in the way of that expansion.

A Quote by Stephen Levine on growth


The process of growth is, it seems, the art of falling down.. Growth is measured by the gentleness and awareness with which we once again pick ourselves up, the lightness with which we dust ourselves off, the openess with which we continue and take the next unknown step,  beyond our edge, beyond our holding,  into the remarkable mystery of being.
