As we journey down the road of Personal and Business Enlightenment, I have often wondered whether we become enlightened first or does the world begin to look enlightened to us. The other theory is that the world becomes enlightened to accomodate a new "enlightened" being. We begin to attract others who are also on the path and they are brought to us in many different ways, some have called it "synchroncity", "divine intervention", or "fate". I would like to call it "purposeful alignment".

I believe we are entering an era of "Enlightened Capitalism", where the bottom line is not the only reason to be in business, and thus we begin to meet other fellow enlightened entrepreneurs who are on the journey of discovering that the way we do business is the way we conduct our lives, and the way we conduct our lives is much like the eightfold Buddha principles we talk about: Right Understanding, Right Thoughts, Right Speech, Right Action, Right Livelihood, Right Effort, Right Mindfulness, Right Concentration.

So my fellow travellers, having met a number of these "Enlightened Entrepreneurs", I can tell you that they are totally at peace and at one with the universe. These same individuals run very highly successful companies. They tell me that when their life is in balance , their businesses life just seems to flow, not without work, but it flows with ease rather than effort, and they make the right decisions based on "right action" occuring in their lives!

Buddha says:

"The moment we are enlightened within, we go beyond the voidness of a world confronting us".
