Now I would hazard to say that the only person who can make a meaningful and helpful contribution to the world that they’re in is the cooperative person.

I recently did a fascinating piece of work for Telenor Pakistan, where it became apparent to me that this business was deeply benign, not only because of how it was run, but also by the nature of what is does.
It has to be clear, however, that what we put forward as accountability is not the same thing as holding people accountable for results.
The nature of control is to waste value. They function like the brake in a car. Every time you apply the brake you by definition waste energy that has already been put into the system.
If we are smart enough with how we respond to trauma, the aftermath of it is an experience of awe. The self is led to a place where it stops controlling. It turns its gazes to that which is vast and overwhelming, and from the position of gratitude, appreciates its magnificence.
