A Quote by Wrench on levels, lines, and integral

For viewers, the notion of levels and lines can help explain that sometimes jarring experience of encountering a fabulous artist who is also a miserable human being: How could Leni Riefenstahl revolutionize cinema yet glamorize the Nazis? Understanding levels and lines can help a viewer “free” an artist by limiting them. In other words, you become a better critic when you can acknowledge any failures an artist might have as a human being without trashing their achievements as an artist.

A Quote by Timothy H. Warneka on emotional intelligence, leadership, integral, harmony, emotions, engagement, and organizations

"Harmonious Emotional Engagement is the tool that allows leaders to take

full advantage of these three simple but profound principles:


People respond emotionally to every situation that occurs in an
organization.

People's negative emotions reduce their performance in an organization.

People's positive emotions enhance their performance in an organization."

A Quote by Timothy H. Warneka on leadership, core problems, problems facing leaders, and integral

 

Throughout my years of working with individuals and organizations, and

as a result of my two-and-a-half year journey of researching and writing

this book, I have discovered the Five Core Problems that leaders face

today. They are:


1. Organizations pay an enormous price when leaders ignore

emotions.

2. Organizations suffer when leaders mistakenly believe there is only

one right way to lead people.

3. Organizations fail when leaders refuse to believe there are wrong

ways to lead people.

4. Organizations flounder when leaders think that there are easy

answers to leading people.

5. Organizations lose viability when they follow the old structures that

serve people at the top first.

A Quote by David Schnarch on relationships, hugging, relaxed, differentiation, and integral

Hugging till relaxed is elegant and simple. THe basics require four sentences: stand on your own two feet. Put your arms around your partner. Focus on yourself. Quiet yourself down - way down.

The real power of hugging till relaxed comes in realizing that it's both a window offering a clear view of the level of differentiation in your relationship and a useful tool for developing more differentiation. It's a perfect example of using touch to grow yourself up by learning to enjoy togetherness and separateness...

Differentiation is your ability to stand on your own two feet, physically and emotionally, when you are close to others. It allows you to stay close while your partner 'bounces off the wall.' If you can quiet yourself while your partner is flooding with anxiety, you don't have to move away or make him or her feel differently in order to control your own emotions. You can stay near - all you need to do is calm yourself down.

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 Ken Wilber on moment, kosmos, you, self, witness, infinite, timeless, eternal, great other, i-i, unborn, surrender, perspective, galaxies, planets, stars, universe, oceans, chaos, dnamic, integral, release, equanimity, passionate, play, forms,

    And what You are is the great Unborn, timeless and eternal, in its 1st-person perspective as the great I-I, the great Self, the Witness of this page, and this room, and this universe, and everything in it, witnessing it ALL with a passionate equanimity that leaves you alone as the Unmoved Mover. You are likewise the great Unborn, timeless and eternal, in its 2nd-person perspective as the Great Thou, the Great Other, before whom you bow in an infinite act of complete release and savage surrender and ecstatic submission, and receive in return the entire Kosmos as your blessing and your forgiveness and your eternal grace. You are likewise the great Unborn, timeless and eternal in its 3rd-person perspective as the Great Perfection, the Holy Spirit, the Great web of Life in all its infinite perfection and dynamic chaos, its pulsating pulsars and exploding nebulae, its stars and galaxies and planets and oceans, through which runs the common blood and bears the single heart of an Eros seeking its own higher wholeness, and always finding it, and seeking yet again, and always finding it yet once more, because You always know that You are here, don't You? And so in fun and sport and play and delight, and remorse and terror and agony and respite, You throw yourself out to start to play all over again, in this, the deepest part of You that gives birth to galaxies within Your heart, lets the stars light up as the neurons in Your brain, sing songs of love and delight to the submission and surrender of Your own good night, and all of this within the space that is You, the space that You feel as Your own I-I, or this ever-present Witness of the forms of Your own play.

    And in the great I-I, as You witness the Forms of Your own play as the entire Kosmos - in that very moment, which is this timeless Now, a Now that has no beginning and no end, there is simultaneously Spirit in its 1-st person and 2nd=person and 3rd-person forms, the Great I and We and It feel each other, and in that unitary seamless sizzling Now, which is this very moment before you do anything at all, it is, quite simply over.

    Which means, it has, quite simply, begun.

A Quote by Bill Clinton on integral, ken wilber, democracy, and politics

I don’t think we’ve found a way to promote economic and political integration in a manner that benefits the vast majority of people in all societies…

In the end if you want to promote democracy and you believe in it, then you have to understand that voters usually see these grand political issues through the prism of their own experience, how it impacts themselves, their families, their communities, how they imagine their children will live. … If ordinary people don’t perceive that our grand ideas are working in their lives, then they can’t develop, the higher level of consciousness, if I can use a kind of touchy-feely word, that American philosopher Ken Wilber wrote a whole book about, called A Theory of Everything. He said, you know, the problem is the world needs to be more integrated but it requires a consciousness that’s way up here, and an ability to see beyond the differences among us. So I worry about that.

A Quote by Ken Wilber on one taste, experience, prior state, nondual, integral, ramana, enlightenment, in, out, be, and being

One Taste is not some experience you bring about through effort; rather, it is the actual condition of all experience before you do anything to it. This uncontrived state is prior to effort, prior to grasping, prior to avoiding. It is the real world before you do anything to it, including the effort to "see it nondually".

This is the world of One Taste, with no inside and no outside, no subject and no object, no in here versus out there, without means, without path and without goal. And this, as Ramana said, is the final truth.

A Quote by Leo F. Buscaglia on joy, love living, integral, always, life, work, joyful, choose, live in joy, and bring joy

Joy is always an integral part of loving. There is joy in every act of life, no matter how menial or repetitive. To work in love is to work in joy. To live in love is to live in joy... Why not choose joy?... Why not live in joy?
