Peter Senge's (Senior lecturer at MIT and Strategist of the Century’ by the Journal of Business Strategy, one of 24 men and women who have ‘had the greatest impact on the way we conduct business today), seminal work on the "Learning Organization, called the "5th Discipline." In it, he explores some basic factors that I think really apply to what we are learning about the LOA in our Inward Quest.

5th Discipline summary

He draws some information from another brilliant author, Chrys Argyris, Professor Emeritus at Harvard Busniess School. His marvelous "Ladder of Inference" shows how our belief systems can skew our judgement and decisions in ways that can manifest in functional and dysfunctional ways. And how we can modify them.

Ladder of Inference

Do you see connections between our wonderful teaching and these business authors?

EDITED: I am interested in the so-called metaphysical underpinnings of business, and what abilities and disabilities are associated with manifesting. Senge says there are seven prominent disabilities within a business organization. I feel these same questions arise within our personal lives.

1 - I am my position

2 - the enemy is out there

3 - the illusion of taking charge

4 - the fixation on events

5 - the parable of the boiled frog

6 - the delusion of learning from experience

7 - the myth of the management team

dollar bill, not sure if you look for affirmations from spiritual human beings to qualify Divine Creation or to glorify the detour they (SHBs) have made by choosing to worship mere intellect focused on material acquisitions.

@Fred1 - I see all paths to our Joy as being "metaphysically" based. We understand that (de-sire = of the Father) is rooted in our Connection with Source, and that material possession, is secondary to this, there can be no detour. There is really only One Seamless Whole, and it leads to Joy in whatever way you feel best.
