Do Your Work from an Inner Spark of Joy.

(updated in January 2019)

Today, your work, your tasks, are not your top priority.

The quality of your work tends to match the quality of your being.

Plus, you have no guarantees of your work results — you can only control whether you do the work, and how you do it. Therefore, why not do your work from joy… instead of frustration, anxiety, or boredom?

Since your work must be done, the only thing left in your control is how you do the work.

You are working towards a better future: for your life, for your family, for the world. You are doing your best to make that happen. Yet, you have no guarantee that your work today will actually contribute to that.

No wonder so many of us yearn for easy money, easy work, easy life, even though we know those to be shallow illusions that don’t truly add value to our life nor our growth.

We need to do real work, deep work, to really contribute to our vision for the world and our own lives. There are real problems problems that are deeply calling to us, crying out for our best contribution.

The more we practice something, the more natural it becomes.

Right now, it may be more natural for you to work within anxiety, stress, frustration, or boredom. (At least some tasks feel that way to you.)

There is a Spark within you that can never be extinguished. It goes by various names: Consciousness, Higher Self, Spirit, Your True Nature, Inner Peace, Joy, Love, The Force, God.

The Spark is always, patiently, waiting for you to reconnect.

When you are in an energetic connection with your Spark, you feel a deep sense of well-being.

The most important thing is to first access that state of deep well-being. Then from there, do your work. You will enjoy your work much more. And others will also more likely enjoy your work. Whatever the results are, people will appreciate your way of doing work, and it will remind them of their Spark.

I wish you a life and work that arises from a deep sense of well-being.
