Our Business Poem

Our Business

Our only business is
to glorify God,
by amplifying good,
and establishing
heaven on earth.
Business is defined as
that which we give
our time and attention to
and that which is our
labor of principle concern.
What higher priority
should occupy us
than God as
infinite Love,
joyous sustainability,
our truest, deepest,
best hope?
The constant effort
to be and do good
provides constant
Let’s go to work and our jobs
with the utmost integrity,
the most excellent motives,
and a heart full of service
to our finest, ultimate ideal.
Success stems from the sweet,
consecrated endeavor
to express God
as fully as possible.
It’s an individual thing
that can integrate
and compound
to collective bliss.
God as your employer
pays eternal benefits.
Have God be your boss,
whatever it is you do.

I work to amplify good wherever I find it. I love color, texture, beauty, great ideas, nature, metaphor, deliciousness, genuine spirituality, and exploring new territory. I encourage authenticity, nurture creativity, champion sustainability, promote peace, and hope to foster a new renaissance where we all are free to be our most fulfilled, multifaceted, and terrific selves.
