Q: My employees tell me I am less crabby. I'm not sure this is a good thing. Will I become
a milquetoast from meditation?
A: It's not likely. You will become much stronger from meditation, which means becoming
who you are at the most fundamental level. At the same time, you will engage in tense and
harmful behavior less and less. You will be less crabby and be more calmly resolute about
the things that matter to you. People have noticed something already. This is a good
thing. You will be in a much better position to motivate your employees because you will
act more from a level of inner strength, instead of from a level of anger and tension.
Of course, there is the belief that tension is necessary to motivate people, especially in
business. "Fear is the greatest motivator," they say. Fear is a motivator. But
it is only useful if it spurs people to attain a greater realization of inner truth, which
includes growing beyond the reach of fear. If fear does not motivate us to find the truth,
is just a grind, an endless wheel of misery. Nobody really wants to be on that wheel,
not even those who are turning it, rolling it over others. Until now, there may not have
seemed to be any other alternative. But there is, and things can change. Go within daily
with meditation and you will get off the wheel, and help others to get off it as well. You
will find that business, and all of life, is much more fulfilling as crabbiness fades.
Crabbiness fades as pure bliss consciousness rises. There are no limits to what you can
The guru is in you.
