Swollen eyes cannot see. Pain disrupts vision. Hurt clouds sight. The first step of the Five Suite Path is awareness, to notice the suffering that lies underneath. He who cannot see cannot heal and cannot lead others from their suffering. Only until awareness is cultivated may the blind leaders of business be free.
Observe. Clear away the dirt from your eyes; look at your people. Do they groan in agony? Do they languish through your corridors?…Are they happy? True business is fueled by loving kindness. Love provides water where there is no ocean. Kindness provides soil where there is no earth. A business that is truly loving and kind grows its people and honors their spirit. Their labor will bear great fruit and their works will shine of joy and honesty.
Open your heart to awareness. Open your eyes: See.
