We are all so diverse. Each of us having experienced life in a different way, sees the world from a different vantage point. Sometimes our thoughts and ideas blend seamlessly together, and other times they conflict.Even more often, we feel torn within our own selves. Our intellect may see things one way, our intuition tells us something different, and our heart tells us something yet different again.
The objective of an integrated view is to view the world by separately measuring what our brains, hearts and intuitive senses tell us. In this way we can evaluate ideas, solve problems, and understand and interact with others with all of the intelligence, caring and experience we have to offer.
Currently, I am writing a series of papers on both the economy and the politics of our times. First up is a reflection on the U.S. economic situation, with our President having just signed off on his stimulus plan.My hope is to add articles that are "simply" stated, clear-cut and pragmatic. And, rather than being caught up in political dogma and rhetoric, are meaningful and useful in our daily lives.
In addition to Simply Put, I've also immersed myself in learning what I can about myself and thereby, all of us living on this planet, and am working on a book designed to help us all understand and take more joy out of our relationships with each other.
Briefly, I grew up on the South Side of Chicago and later moved to the North Shore. In 1978, I moved to the San Francisco Bay Areawhere I practiced as a CPA before later forming a software company. In 2001, I launched one of the first business systems to be run entirely over the Internet, for which I was recognized and awarded as both a pioneer and visionary. The story is now on file in both the Smithsonian Institution and universities around the world.
In 2007, after selling my company, I began to pursue my interest in the world we live in, our countries, cities, towns and people including myself.This has led me to explore beliefs and practices that are thousands of years old, as well as our current trends, and plenty of what's in between.
