Abstract

Sustainable organisation development is discussed in association with a complex and integrating culture—with an integrated soul presence. Interpreting the receiver’s hermeneutics as a necessary consequence of the creator’s reflexive motion, we raise the question whether creating energies can be put into motion simultaneously in the external and internal dimensions. In this scenario, we can not only open internal spaces but can also handle responsibility for and commitment to the environment as priority aspects. We examine organisation development as a positive-amount energy flow and, applying the concept of creating organic systems, we examine the opportunities for developing organisational intelligence , which is capable of integrating the rational, emotional and spiritual aspects alike: how consciousness , if tuned to totality, can create and operate a value creating network of interactions. This study discusses the cornerstones of existing in the VUCA world , as depending on the deepening of self-knowledge and on experiencing the cosmic essence. This study wishes to replace the identity encapsulated in self-interest with a broader self-image , which reflects the cosmic nature of existence; such fundamental principles are applied along which society system of values can be redefines—and, hence, the concept of development can be made sustainable. At the end of the study, we will quote a Zen fable to illustrate our message: this fable shows how consciousness realises the physical level of existence itself through the maintenance of self-operation and self-identity at different levels. The three pillars of realisation are self-interpretation, the interpretation of existence outside the self and the system of relations between these two.
