Topic du WEEK a la OCEANUS: WHAT DOES EMPOWERING GROUP LEADERSHIP LOOK LIKE?
I think we can ALL AGREE NOW that the TYRANT/DICTATOR/FEAR and EGO BASED - STYLE of LEADERSHIP is the OPPOSITE of INSPIRING, EMPOWERING, LIBERATING LEADERSHIP, no? I mean, WE do HAVE a LOT of historic EVIDENCE to SUGGEST this particular GOVERNING SYSTEM, which does benefit US in some ways (“What have the ROMANS ever done for us?! ); however, it is clearly NOT the most ENLIGHTENED nor EFFICIENT form of LEADERSHIP, no? Besides, I KNOW WE CAN DO BETTER!
Well, WE, at OCEANUS are seeking to ANSWER this very important QUESTION, “WHAT DOES EMPOWERING GROUP LEADERSHIP LOOK LIKE?“, through this epic SEA STEADING EXPERIENCE, known as Ephermerisle. And WE are ALL STILL LEARNING! *And that goes for the ELDERS, too!
I have a bloody strong FEELING (a KNOWING, if you will), that everyONE (*including plants, animals, minerals, protons, dark matter, quanta, unicorns, etc.) has a UNIQUE CONTRIBUTION to COLLECTIVE CONSCIOUS LEADERSHIP and MANAGEMENT and the “TRICK” is to LISTEN to everyONE’s INPUT (“They” are THERE for a good reason—even IF it is to SHOW YOU what does NOT WORK—which is just as valuable as what DOES WORK! Ask Thomas Edison!)
IF you are AWARE/AWAKE and LISTEN to OTHERS, YOU will ALWAYS hear KEY INFORMATION (like PUZZLE PIECES!) and YOU will be able to HEAR (or if you are an EMPATH, FEEL!) the TRUTH in their STORIES (*hint: It FEELS GOOD/RIGHT to you), that will HELP YOU (and your ENTIRE CREW) make BETTER, more INFORMED (and hopefully, LOVE-BASED, NOT EGO-BASED) DECISIONS about OUR COLLECTIVE LIFE EXPERIENCE TOGETHER…on LAND, AIR and SEA (as is above, is below, no?)
Personally, I view ALL OUR PROBLEMS/CHALLENGES and/or “OH FUCK!” MOMENTS (*such as dropping the water heater in the water (!); breaking the engine on the Whaler (twice!); the whole HOUSING/FUEL/SEWAGE/WASTE/TRASH/WATER SITUATION –which applies to the WHOLE WORLD, I might add!; and way too many more to list here!) like a giant MULTI-DIMENSIONAL PUZZLE!
THE PUZZLE is a PORTRAIT of OUR COLLECTIVE VISION for ONE, or OUR NEW EARTH, right?
And every PERSON (*as well as plant, animal, mineral, single-celled organism, etc.) HOLDS a PIECE of the PUZZLE! *For example: You CANNOT TREAT or CURE MALARIA unless you GET to KNOW the MOSQUITO intimately (inside and out!) and the Malarial VIRUS itself, right?
Therefore, WHEN we really LISTEN/PAY MIND-FULL ATTENTION to the PEOPLE (plants, animals, germs, insects, etc.) immediately AROUND US, they will REVEAL (through their STORIES and EXPERIENCES) KEY INFORMATION (aka, a PUZZLE PIECE!) that CONTRIBUTES to the COLLECTIVE WHOLE SOULution! *Thus, TRUE LEADERSHIP means BEING able RECOGNIZE when a SOULution has appeared and then COORDINATE that SHIT!
NEXT, it is important to RESEARCH and IDENTIFY your readily accessible NATURAL RESOURCES (aka, TALENTS/SKILLS/STRENGTHS) BOTH in the PEOPLE who SHOW UP for you and your immediate ENVIRONMENT (SURROUNDINGS) because IF you are AWARE/AWAKE, YOU will DISCOVER, much to your de-LIGHT-ful SURPRISE and JOY, that the SOULution is ALWAYS RIGHT in FRONT of YOU (OR next to you, or behind you—Wait! LOOK in THAT corner!) and easily ACCESSIBLE! NOTE: In PHYSICS, this funk phenomena is known as OCCAM’s RAZOR.
IF you can Co-CREATIVELY COORDINATE these VALUABLE NATURAL RESOURCES (Human, plant, animal, and things, Oh my!) through INSPIRING, EMPOWERING, LIBERATING, POSITIVE, LOVE-BASED LEADERSHIP-- in theory, WE will not only have HARMONY and BALANCE in ANY COMMUNITY (aka, PEACE!), but also...
INCREASED CONSCIOUS CO-CREATION and MANIFESTATION
BETTER QUALITY SERVICE for ALL!
HAPPY HEALTHY CONSCIOUS COLLABORATORS
LOWER COSTS (ie, “Opportunity Cost” of FUCK-UPS caused by MISCOMMUNICATION, MISINFORMATION, FEARS and other EGO-BASED BULLSHIT!)
BETTER COMMUNICATION—with a side of JOY, PASSION, LOVE, ENTHUSIASM and hopefully FUN throughout the WHOLE CREATION PROCESS!
And isn’t THAT the WHOLE POINT?!!
