Work as Divine Service ~ The Ananda Way of Life, #35
August 7, 2021
The work we do occupies such a large portion of our day-to-day life, to learn to spiritualize our relationship to it offers a tremendous opportunity for upliftment and self-expansion. All of us must work in some way, but our attitude towards our work defines whether it is contractive to our consciousness or expansive. Even the thought of "hard work" drains the mind of energy and enthusiasm, typically. Service, on the other hand, opens the floodgates to divine inspiration, enthusiasm, and creative application. The cornerstones of outward human life, work, family, relationships, children, etc., can become doorways for deep self-expansion if viewed in the right light and approached with a subtle attitude, for with awareness they can show us how to touch the divine itself, through energy, love, and joy.
