Conscious Business Quotes

Here are some of the essential quotes that capture the essence of Conscious Business.

“No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it. “

Albert Einstein


“When we quit thinking primarily about ourselves and our own self-preservation, we undergo a truly heroic transformation of consciousness.”

Joseph Campbell


“Remember that consciousness is power. Consciousness is education and knowledge. Consciousness is becoming aware. It is the perfect vehicle for students. Consciousness-raising is pertinent for power, and be sure that power will not be abusively used, but used for building trust and goodwill domestically and internationally. Tomorrow’s world is yours to build.

Yuri Kochiyama


“Conscious business.. business that is conscious of inner and outer worlds.. would therefore be business that takes into account body, mind, and spirit in self, culture, and nature. Put differently, conscious business would be mindful of the way that the spectrum of consciousness operates in the Big Three worlds of self and culture and nature.”

Ken Wilber


What would a conscious business environment look like?

“The most significant observation would be the total absence of abuse,shame,and threat. People would take responsibility for their behavior and deal with each other honestly and respectfully. They would hold themselves and each other accountable for adhering to some set of agreed-upon values and for working toward an agreed-upon vision. Deviations and errors would be an opportunity for learning and growth,rather than an excuse for blame and punishment.

There would still be problems,people that don’t get along,and losses. A conscious business environment is not a Garden of Eden where everything is always blissful. The marketplace is a turbulent place with no guarantees of success. The main difference displayed by a conscious business environment is that in addition to the drive to achieve their goals,people would experience also the commitment to operate according to their values. This commitment is the source of unconditional dignity that would give the organization and its members a core of luminosity from which to extend into the world.

A conscious business environment would be a challenge,an invitation to develop people’s physical,emotional,mental,and spiritual spheres. The conscious organization is a crucible where people refine themselves through service and partnership. As Khalil Gibran would say,a conscious business is a place where it becomes obvious that work is “love made visible.”

” To us, conscious business happens when the participants in it are conscious.
Conscious business transacts when the people in the business are making
decisions in a conscious way.”

Conscious Business, Based on the Teachings of Yogi Bhajan

“The conscious businessperson recognizes that they have subconscious filters
that distort their view of reality, they apply self‐awareness to understand what
their filters are, and then they use teamwork to correct their distorted vision.”

Conscious Business, Based on the Teachings of Yogi Bhajan

“A conscious business is not flat or consensus‐based.  It has a strong chain of
command, with clear levels of responsibility and a status that goes along with
the responsibility of a job title.  But within this hierarchical structure, the
people act with consciousness.  They balance their blind spots by hearing all
sides.  They can remove their ego from the situation (which we’ll discuss in
detail in the next Chapter) enough so that the wisdom of the group can
emerge.  Once they’ve heard all the opinions, they have an attitude of
cooperation that allows them to incorporate those diverse views into their final
plan or decision.  This attitude of cooperation helps overcome the instinct to
immediately dismiss contrary viewpoints. “

“We must awake to the reality that business has the ability to change the self-perception and the self-narrative story for most of the human beings on the planet. We thought that was the role of psychology, but it’s not. Psychology can only deal with the broken pieces of people living in a society which pathologizes their core activity, which is business. We must change the essential narrative of business to make it an accurate reflection of the transformative impact of business, its true identity as the great healer. This is not a kind of Shangri-La vision; it is an accurate narrative of conscious business which should become internalized by the majority of citizens of the planet who are engaging in business. It is a huge and dramatic paradigm shift that actually shifts the very source code of our self-understanding.”
