Thank you for the opportunity to respond. I am most impressed with the notion that business is for corporate and individual profit (for itself whereas gardens are often for others). The organizational world, including nonprofit groups, are often noticeably different. I see ServiceSpace.org, parent of Ijourney.com, as mindfully using many garden metaphors. Service space has grown greatly because of the fertilizer of "detachment" and "no expectations." Businesses expect profit and are often attached to it. Furthermore, service space.org is doubly detached in not expecting "members" to donate. There are many fine business people. Closer to the ideal of compassion for everyone, however, are many nonprofit organizations. Nonprofit organizations are often, in my opinion, more awake than most for-profit businesses. Warm and kind regards to everyone.
