I have decided to respond to the request for articles with content I prepared specifically for ourselves yesterday and adapted it very slightly. I hope this is what you were after.
The test of today as a spiritually awake person is to apply what both Christianity, and Anthroposophy as the means to understand, gives us, in everyday practical life. Within the Bosun Group of companies we are trying to love this challenge. The times now demand this of us if we are earnest about our dedication to the Christ impulse. Below is somewhat of a blueprint that we are trying to hold consciously within us as we tackle the challenge of adapting ourselves to live our economic activities within the confused conceptual framework of today together with the questions of the good or bad faith behind them. It was written to the Management Team yesterday in preparation for Monday the 25th of May. Hopefully you can extract from it the key spiritual scientific concepts and attitudes underlying the approach.
Mon 25 May
What is our relationship with you?
What have we asked of you or put to you that requires poor concepts in bad faith? Is this the same as the current bigger reality?
We ask that we together put before the world through our individual sacrifice, an excellent example that works in the world but that is based on our inner competence and dignity as human beings.
We want to continue this right now under the current situation which is demanding. We want to do this not as a victory for people, but as a victory for the godliness in people.
We cannot operate outside of the realities of the way the world works physically. We can however know that we ourselves are that which influences what and how things form in the physical world.
We form our relevance and we form our efficiency as we serve the physical needs of others consciously. (Economic sphere.)
We work on our own inner being knowing its structure as body, soul and spirit. We see its power in our deeds. (Liberty sphere.)
We determine the rules and fairness towards one another. (Equality sphere.)
We all need a common picture to which to direct our conscious and humbled inner lives. Our common picture is to serve the material needs of others.
We need to build our ability to serve these needs with a correct relationship and balance in the mineral, plant, and animal components of what we allow to form. (Our guide to functional health is the Fourfold picture or the Four Kingdoms found on earth.)
We have good infrastructure in most cases. It could be understood better, maintained better, have higher availability.
Our operators could understand how it works better, make less waste, cause less damage.
Our relevance team could be working together better. In these times this is critical. Is there not more of the market that would like to know about us and experience us?
We need to know exactly where we are with regards to all agreements we make with each other, with customers, with suppliers, with the State.
We need to be able to measure what we are doing in all respects from cash flow, to waste, Through Put, and more.
We need to consider each person as a human being requiring safety and equality.
We need to form teams that will guide the above into this form as it is required for the circumstances we live in right now. Our previous structure served a more consistent environment.
We will take this on from Monday based on the above with those who want to partake out of freedom in this. You can decide not to be part of this. We can together decide where best to place each person for the benefit of the whole. Our correct organisation of the humanity that lives in us as a whole is the only ‘resource’ to effect this metamorphosis. We will tackle this with faith and commitment to our distinctly human qualities and capacities. There is no alternative.
