The geometry of Change

Leadership in times of Change, how to host complexity:


It 
is 
time 
to 
stop
 waiting 
for 
someone 
to 
save 
us. 
It 
is 
time 
to 
face 
the 
truth 
of 
our 
situation — that 
we’re
 all
 in
 this 
together , 
that 
we
 all 
have 
a 
voice and
 figure 
out 
how 
to
 mobilize 
the 
hearts
 and 
minds 
of 
everyone 
in
 our
 workplaces 
and communities.
 [1]

But 
the 
causes
 of 
today’s 
problems
 are 
complex 
and 
interconnected.
 There 
are 
no

 simple 
answers, 
and 
no 
one 
individual
 can 
possibly
 know 
what 
to
 do.
 These 
leaders
 know
 that 
hosting
 others 
is 
the 
only
 way 
to 
get 
complex, 
intractable
 problems 
solved.
 [2] The point here is that for leading (or hosting) others first we need to lead ourselves, actually, probably investing more time leading ourselves than others.

Once we are able to lead and sense ourselves and being and active member of our closest communities (family, flatmates, the people in our local grocery, close friends, the baker…) we will be ready to face more complex network challenges and start creating impact in those communities that are somehow far from the core.

The geometry of Change: The Metatron:

The further we go from the core (from ourselves) the complex the system is, so the only way to pilot that kaos is to be centered and present. It’s time now to be holistic and flexible enough. Let’s see this structure clearer…

Metatron

Metatronic geometry to create and host communities (in the core there will be yourself, then the close communities and after the boundary communities, and the relations, connections and structures between them)

In my opinion this is the kind of  interconnected geometric structure in which no one is in charge of others, it is a system in which all the actors create an emergent phenomena. This presents an structure that forgets 
hierarchy and trust on peoples creativity, positivism and experience to create solutions for complex situations. It shows how the realtions between oneself and the surrounding communities and structures should be formed.

In addition this amazing structure is an amazing example of resilience and adaptability to new situations if we take close look to how well we can create new figures connecting the hubs of each circle. The transcendental Metraton’s cube amazingly lead to us to reduce in size smaller Metatron’s cubes and larger Metatron’s cubes all relating to one and other, expanding all the way to infinity and all the way into infinity. Enabling somehow each one of us to understand and host communities and networks.

Bringing down this matter to “real life” situations, is like when you are trying to construct a community (maybe a client of yours ask you to create a community of users, or when you as an entrepreneur need a community of soul-mates, this kind of thing) My advice here, is that in order to create a proper and a strong boundary community first of all yourself and your closest circles need to be leaded and on balance. Instead you won’t be able to construct communities and networks with a weak core. Let’s think how spider nets, water crystals… are constructed…

I see clear the importance of self mastery, self cultivation and self hosting in order to go further and try to create impact in your sorrounding. That’s the way to make the difference and create meaningful and self sustaining networks of communities.

How do you lead yourself?

How do you relate with your sorrounding networks and communities?

How much time do you spend hosting core-communities in comparishon with boundary communities?
