Businesspeople talk about what happens when you put "skin in the game;' while Buddhists refer to tendrel (a Tibetan term that means both serendipity and the in- terdependence of all things) . Whatever's at work, I've had a growing sense of invis- ible orchestration and behind - the-scenes cosmic string-pulling since I started grop- ing for ways to do my part for Gaia. I've also learned that when doors magically fly open, you'd better walk in with your prag- matic hat jammed firmly on your head, your practical feet encased in sturdy shoes, and your sleeves rolled up for the grind of making (and keeping) it real. You Don't Need Money (Then Again, You Really, Really Do): Time, energy, vision, and love will go an astonishingly long way, but funding counts. "Your balance sheet is feedback;' a business adviser bluntly told me. "It shows whether you have a viable mode!:' True, the only meaningful metric is the thriving of people and planet. And the financial system is fictive (the numbers only work when people at the "bottom of the pyramid" are omitted from the bottom line, and the value of nature is discounted to near zero). Put on a real green eyeshade and nearly every business on Earth is revealed to be running in the red. Still, one must re- spect-no, embrace-the dance-partner of illusion: money may not be "real;' but you suffer when it tromps on your instep, feel the joy of efficacy when it empowers your mission. Beyond that, as Whitman said, "Resist what insults your own sou!:' If we all were to start doing what we authentically believed to be the needful thing, we could yet pull the fat out of the fire. Don't Get Grandiose (and Don't Play Small): Self-anointedness is an occupa- tional hazard for would -be world -savers. It's easy to succumb to the Atlas syndrome (don't shrug!). On the other hand, what's at stake these days is the fate of the Earth and of generations to come. If you be- lieve there really is enough to feed, clothe, house, heal, and educate everyone, that our environment can be green again, then fol- low Goethe's inimitable words: "Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it:' Our problem is less a shortage of resources
