Authentic leadership, the focus of the letter “Aa,” relies upon the wisdom revealed through the letter “Bb.” Leadership and wisdom are the parent attributes of the unifying alphabet letters.
The letter “Bb” faces the heart. The archetype of this letter encourages you to engage the wisdom and intelligence of the heart in defining your responsibilities. It also prompts you to develop an uplifting, meaningful and simplified lifestyle. The understanding offered by the letter “Bb” is that a simplified lifestyle provides the internal and external environment for clear thinking and for making heart-directed decisions.
The wisdom related to the letter “Bb” is far-reaching and all-encompassing. There is counsel for all people, all forms of institutions, and for all problematic situations. To access this counsel, you need to acknowledge its availability and pursue it with an open mind.
The values you uphold are challenged in the presence of the heart’s wisdom. Are they life-sustaining and rooted in honor and integrity? How well do your values support you in maintaining an inner peace when there are personal, world or relationship polarized opinions?
When you are attuned to the wisdom of the letter “Bb,” you learn how important it is to be guardians of the Earth’s resources. You are reminded that the Earth is willing to provide for your needs. Your part is to use the Earth’s resources wisely and with intelligence that life may be maintained on the Earth.
The counsel of the letter “Bb” also extends to technology. Relying heavily upon this way of life interferes with the awakening and development of your latent inner senses and untapped leadership powers. In the course of evolution, the refined inner senses and greater powers are necessary to adjust to and be prepared for anticipated environmental changes. For this reason the archetype of the letter “Bb” encourages you to care for your physical form, for it, too, needs to be refined; to care for your mind that it may be at peace; and to honor your spirit for that is who you are. Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “There is no planet, sun, or star could hold you, if you but knew what you are.”
