Venus Transit – and ‘Small Business’…?
On June 8, 2004, the world witnessed what no one living today had ever seen… VENUS – the planet of Love, Beauty and Human Unity – transitting across the face of the Sun.
Acording to one line of thought (and a beautiful line at that) during this transit of Venus which lasted for about six hours, the radiations from the Sun blended with those from Venus and streamed towards the Earth, and as the ‘blot’ (beautiful line of thought) says, carried with them energies to weave love and unity into our collective consiousness and, potentially… Into Every Human Heart Too!
Though none living could have witnessed the last Venus transit, those that missed the 2004 occurence need not fret too much, for in eight years, on June 6, 2012 there will be another. (After this second transit there won’t be another for the next 100 years or more)
So how does the Venus transit connect with ‘small biz’?
Well, as the ‘blot’ continues to say…recorded history has shown a startling relationship between occurences of Venus transits and massive shifts in consciousness. Matters get intriguingly interesting when we add that according to the Mayan calendar, which predicts major trends in human affairs, the year of the second transit i.e. 2012 is supposed to represent the birthing of… ‘A Golden Age of Enlightenment’
So the eight-year period from June 8, 2004 to June 6, 2012 is supposed to mark the time-frame for a doorway into this Golden Age. A time-frame when ALL of us should reach for our greatest hopes and dreams, when ALL should seek out our greatest potential as divinely inspired humans, when…
All can come together to create the Great Oneness!
But still, how does this tie in with Business?? ?
Alright! Human development and growth – be it physical, spiritual, emotional, material or whatever – will still continue to depend on the use of things. Even in the Golden Age! And ‘things’ will continue to require money to buy them with BUT – and this might well be upheaval times – in the new age, business or the exchange of products & services, and the enabler of this exchange i.e. money will be forced to undergo a shift of tectonic proportions from the current…
Competitive – take-as-much-as-you-can from limited existing wealth,
Creative – make-as-much-as-you-need from the inexhaustible resources of the Universe.
When this happens, business, and especially small business owners will be faced with their greatest opportunity – the opp for radical change!
Now whether Venus or the Mayans are instrumental in this or not, or as a believer of say christianity would be rightly justified in refusing to accept any planetary influences the ‘fact’ remains that this eight-year period could be taken by smo’s to re-invent themselves.
(I read somewhere that those who spot world trends have already noticed a remarkable shift where just intending to be nice to each other is no longer valid. Is this the beginning to a more ethical business environment? )
And how does one re-invent oneself?
Acepting the truth that on the creative plane – as opposed to the competitive plane – there can never be a lack of opportunity they should immediately begin to get out of all blatantly competitive endeavours.
…if anyone is in a business which depends on beating another,
…If anyone is in a business that promises everything for as little as nothing,
If anyone is in a business where you need to move in a hurry all the time,
Then you are most probably operating on the competitive plane and need to get out as soon as possible. For on the creative plane there is never any hurry YET you go as fast as you can. And then, nobody can beat you to what is yours because you initiate processes to create what you need and are not seeking another’s property.
Small businesses make up the absolute bulk of all commerce and trade so if there is going to be any kind of shift the change will have to begin with the flexible small business owners rather than from sluggish and slow to respond major corporations.
So here’s to small business owners re-inventing themselves on the creative plane and re-igniting their efforts to turn into long-term, sustainable, and truly profitable ‘social entrepreneurs’ …
