What is the purpose of life ? Why do we work ? these are two questions that we all ask at some point in our life. There are goals I have chased in life and once I get past them I yet feel a sense of emptiness.
Integrity experiments is a journey to find truths around life and work . It is also an idea to build a new kind of an organisation for the connected age.
I begin with the following assumptions as i have experienced them.
- We all want ‘pleasure’ and want to avoid ‘pain’ , yet pain is unavoidable , suffering though is avoidable.
- ‘Culture’ is external to us and not our ‘Truth’, we become our ‘Culture’.
- We are all born with a unique gift , I call it ‘Our Truth’ our life purpose is to ‘Express our Truth’.
- Work is an expression of our ‘Truth’ but mostly it has got clouded with ‘Cultural’ truth.
- Our ‘Truth’ is connected to the Universal Truth , we are ‘One.’
- When we do not express our ‘Truth’ we ‘hurt’ and this can be felt in our lives in different ways.
Somehow the ‘Culture’ that is outside of us has got us hooked to chase what is not ‘Our Truth’ . What are the signs of not being in our ‘Truth’ ?
- We experience there is Scarcity in our world. We chase , we gather , we accumulate and yet feel it is not enough . There is never enough.
- We compete , success is seen as being ahead of the rest.
- We want to be seen and acknowledged by others , our existence is based on what others think of us.
- We move away from our ‘authenticity’ and put on a ‘mask’ that is very heavy.
- Work is ‘survival’ to pay the bills.
- Our life is about ‘Self’ , greed , accumulating , disconnected with the rest and our world.
- Culture creates Us vs Them.
- Our ‘Culture’ becomes who we are.
What is ‘Culture’ ?
All that is external to us that influences our behaviour can loosely be defines as culture.
The Integrity Experiments will revolve around ‘Living my Truth’, ‘Our Truth’.
- At Work – Building a collaborative organisation , each individual bringing their best self and operating from abundance in collaboration and ‘Trust’.
- In relationships – Express ‘My Truth’ in relationships and also be open to many expressions of ‘Truth’.
- Planet – See the oneness of all that exists on our planet , be a change to heal the world.
- Health – Get closer to the ‘Truth’ about healthy way of living and being. The mind/ body is a medium through which we express in our world.
- Spirituality – Connect to the stillness within be open to experiencing beyond the known.
and to begin with the experiment at work we pivot Social Flutur a Brand and Digital Strategy company to a collaborative space for those who wish to express their creative communication self , those that have a calling to build ‘Purpose’ driven organisations and ‘Brands’.
Social Flutur will be the first experiment of creating a new way of working.
- Based on collaboration.
- Each individual bringing their best selves to work , contributing.
- Each individual experiencing collective abundance.
- A team based on ‘Trust’.
