Are you hiding something?  Is there a mess that you haven’t attended to?  Is it time for you and your people to muck out the stalls?  Something doesn’t smell right.

Leaders are called to renew and refresh–not just ourselves, but each other.  Good leaders must always set the example:  never let your values collect dust.  In order to become a stronger leader, you must examine limiting beliefs and conditioning, and rinse them away.  Good leaders must work diligently to keep themselves pristine.  When you continue to polish your integrity and morals, you also maintain morale.  After the wild party, you and your team must work to set things right.  Watch for dirt that’s been swept under the carpet.  Clean up your act.  Wash up!

Is there dance in their steps?  Do you all hear music?  Can you see the colors, or are your people shades of grey?  More importantly, what color are you?

The seer is “one who sees”.  The “eye of the beholder” is a phrase about perception.  When one is a creative genius, one has defined their own aesthetics.  You, the leader, are both the artist and the art.  Those who follow look to you as not just the master, but the masterpiece.  They gaze upon you with awe.  In watching you, they see the synchronicities that a great leader does naturally command.  They watch the unfolding of elegance upon the blank canvas.  Your success is a beautiful thing.

Sea of Eden

The inspiration for this piece came to me in a vision of Eden.  It was beyond my reach, on the ocean floor. With hands raised to One who would see me and hear me, I cried out:  “Let me see this place! Let me in!” Then came an answer: “Not yet”.

There was a day when God gave to Man dominion over the earth.

“And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.” (Genesis 1:28 KJVA.)

Man was strong and free.  God had bestowed the power to command all of creation.  Man could run, and could climb. Man could swim, and He could fly.  All the Earth was Eden, and all was good.

But then was something different.  Man was no longer the same. Gone were his gills and his fins.  The power over water was leaving him now. For Man, water became a blessing and a curse–life or death to him and to all life.  No longer could the human command the water.

Now comes the flood.  The rain came down and the oceans swelled.  Noah and his kin took to an ark for survival.  During 150 days and more, man’s conversion became more complete.   And Noah called upon the raven and the dove to fly for him, and seek dry land.  Continents were then revealed, but not Eden.

“And the ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, upon the mountains of Ar´arat.” (Genesis 8:4 KJVA.)

Man was lost, disoriented.  They disembarked onto the mountain and began to live again.  But they had forgotten that they could swim. And they had forgotten that they could fly.  And no longer could they find Paradise.

Now comes Jonah–thrown into the raging sea by a team of sailors.  The whale knew he would not survive and thus became as the Ark had been for Noah–a vessel of safety.

“Now the Lord had prepared a great fish to swallow up Jonah. And Jonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights.” (Jonah 1:17 KJVA.)

What secrets did the whale tell Jonah?  Did it carry him back to Paradise? Was it there, in the waters of the deep?   Jonah had heard the call of God, and had seen Eden.

Now comes Jesus, walking upon the Sea of Galilee. He remembers that which had been forgotten for so many generations .  He calls to Peter but Peter becomes lost, and can not remember.

” And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea.” (Matthew 14:25 KJVA.)

Now comes the ichthys, and symbology of the fish.  Where we find the fish, we find Eden. But still man can not go there.  The way is shut for generation after generation. See now the ichthys as the ajna, calling upon us to see, or to sea.

Now comes Atlantis, and once again Utopia disappears into the great and dark abyss.  The event reminds us to remember. Will we ever find the lost city?

Now I ask: is Eden in the sea?  When will we return to it? When will we remember our dominion over all the Earth?  I heard a voice say: “Not for generations will you remember. Not for 70 or 700 generations.  But return you will. All generations will return, and yet you have already returned. For there is no returning, and there is no becoming.  Past and future are illusions. Time does not exist. Know you are there, and Paradise is found. For Eden is a state of being, and a place each of us can go. Any who wish to find Eden must reclaim the power of dominion.  And to have dominion over self is to be all-powerful.”

Now come the whales.  They carry the ancient secrets.  They know the way. They hide, deep within the ocean.    Yet humans seek to destroy the whales. These majestic creatures carry the sounds of joy, and the tones of remembrance.  They are the guardians of the very song of God. They watch over Eden and keep it safe from humanity, and safe for humanity.

Today, the same water that covered the Earth, and covers our paradise, recedes from us.  Humans have polluted and defiled the lakes and the oceans. We have harmed, and made filthy, our life-giving water.  We have made filthy our Eden. Shortage is coming. Many will die. But hope remains, if only we believe that we are the very water of life.

“He that believeth on me, as the Scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.” (John 7:38 KJVA.)

The search for the lost paradise exists  in order to teach of duality. This story, as told to me, is about irony and synchronicity.  Past and future are explained here. The story is about sabotage and redemption. The teachings of the waters are endless.  I thirst for more, therefore I ask for the sacred water to be given me.

“but whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.” (John 4:14 KJVA.)

 

I have no answers still, only more questions.  I still seek Eden, I still can not fly. And still I thirst.

Are you averse to hand-holding?  Do you ascribe to tough love?  Sink or swim?  Where is the love?

We are people—people leading people.   Sometimes your flock needs a vigilant shepherd.  When they are in over their head, your followers need a lifeguard to rescue them.  And there are even times when human emotions overflow into the workplace and you stand in as comforter.  Leading must be done with care, both for yourself and for those who look up to you.  Remember–you are everything to somebody.  And you love to be just that.

You’re almost there.  The other side is within your sight.  Be watchful of doubt—the uncertainty of knowing what to let go of, and when to let it go.  Too often, we cling to things that would weigh us down, or drag us away from the finish line.

Crossing the monkey bars on the playground was a learning experience beyond our conscious knowing.  Every single rung was about letting go, swinging, grasping what lies ahead, and doing it again.  Close your eyes and re-live this activity.  Hear the sounds, feel the pressure on your hands, feel the weight and the tension in your arms.  Pause if you must but avoid hanging too long.  Now open your eyes and swing!

Did you miss that turn?  Were you derailed?  Where did we go wrong?

Not to worry.  Take this opportunity to examine why you missed the mark.  Retracing your steps means to go backwards.  Check for important moves that were jumped over.  Observe whether your actions were aligned with your values.  Examine the spell you crafted.  Review the ceremony that set the wheels in motion.  Do not take shortcuts, and never underestimate the power of planning with purpose.  Reset, reboot, recommit, and do it again.

Have you ever heard of the “It Girl”?  Think Lesley Lawson, a.k.a. Twiggy.  And then there’s Gloria Vanderbilt.  These icons became legendary role models for the fashion industry.  They are among the ranks of celebrities who stun the world with their art.  Too lofty for you to aspire to?  Nope!

These leaders were born just like everybody else–with gifts.  People like John Lennon and Andy Warhol knew who they wanted to be. Warren Buffett does his thing, every day.  It’s the same for me—and for you.  You have an entourage—a paparazzi!  You are the creator of your own destiny and those whom you lead are eager to imitate.  Don’t play small.  All eyes are on you.  Embody the “It”.  The world is watching.  Strut your stuff.  Work your magic.

How do we stay on track?  Can you keep the team moving forward, toward the next marker? Do they still know where they are going?

As you begin anew, turn corners and approach the finish line, people on your team may dilly-dally along the way.  They may lose interest, or perhaps even lose strength.  Perhaps all are not warriors.  Some may indeed stall, or lag behind.  Always have a marker, revealing the trail ahead.  Ensure that everyone on this journey can truly see the goal.  Make sure everyone’s eyes remain on the prize.  Carry the banner as you lead.  Display the bullseye, so all can keep a steady aim.  Let it fly!

Are you close to turning a corner?  Is your team poised, ready for the next phase?  Are you on the edge?

This position, or feeling, can be quite uncomfortable for many people.  Your initiative, project, or even your usual process, stands ready for upgrade.  Success is imminent.  What may be required now is Courageous Leadership.  The leader of this type feels a rush of excitement and is enthralled by the pressure.  You are the one who calls the next move.  You are the one who makes the difficult choice, takes the risk, and leads by example.  It’s up to you.  Show them what you’re made of.

Have you heard these distortions?

  • This is the way we’ve always done it.
  • If it isn’t broken, don’t fix it.
  • Change is hard.

These utterances are telling—it’s time for a purge.  Holding on to limiting beliefs and speaking phrases that disempower, prevent progress.  A team like this can’t seem to get out if its own way!  A team like this needs Catalytic Leadership—changemakers.  Growth requires progressive ideas.  Great performance requires a winning attitude.  Excellence requires the ability to rise above limitations and perceived obstacles.  Good leaders are the alchemists of advancement, and good leaders manifest great successes.
