Doing the great work


images

Most people have to have a job to get by but not every job we get paid for will be part of the great work we desire to do. A job can pay the bills but the great work is that which stirs our soul.

People lose their happiness when they forget that the 2 things sometimes are not the same. You may have a love of knitting but have to be a server to pay the bills. What’s important is knowing that what you do for money may not be what feeds your soul. That’s ok, we are big kids now and can make decisions that reflect that fact.

But just because we have jobs we “have ” to do doesn’t mean we should stop doing anything else. We have to maintain and continue to do our great work in order to stay happy. Paying the bills is responsible but a lack of creative expression in life is a life lived in black and white, no color at all. Our great work feeds the longing for life.

There is truthfully all kinds of great work. Because any work you do with love becomes great work. I think back to my Grandma getting up early to make the pies we wanted, no sweat for her to get up before the sun so we could have homemade pie for dessert. It was an easy sacrifice for her. Cooking was part of her great work. She did many things as part of her great work, which was to love and teach us unconditional love.

It’s important to the human that the work we do, be something that stirs the heart, we need that, to feel like our presence on this planet means something. When we feel like our work doesn’t count or that no one sees the importance of our work it hurts us. Beyond that is knowing that the work you do that feeds you, is something to have to do, were called to do, and it may be something that others around you will disapprove of. You must be ok with that as well.

So right now review your life. Is the thing you spend the most time doing part of your great work? Is the job you are doing to pay the bills killing your soul or have you reconciled yourself to knowing the sacrifice an artist makes to make art? Its important!

When you answer for this lifetime and the time you spent here you will have wanted to at least thought about it!

We as humans need to take responsibility for the time we spend, because our time is a gift. Also it’s important to remember that deep down inside of each of us is a link to the great work. A seed of something you wanted to pursue, to learn, a dream you have yet to follow. That’s why they say follow your dreams. It is key to figuring out your part of the great work.

So you may think you don’t know what you are called to do when in fact you have not spent enough time with yourself to know the answer. This is another reason a spiritual practice is important so the voice of your higher self can be in constant contact with you.

Imagine a world where everyone was fulfilled by the work they were doing. If more people were walking around fulfilled and excited about what they were doing it would change the face of the world. Every voice that is used in the way it was meant allows more and more people to feel free to use their voice and be who they were meant to be.

This is part of the great work as well, being who you are, who you really are. People get on me all of the time, you just are too spiritual, I can’t even imagine a world where every minute is not figuring out how to please God. Doing God’s work is the great work for me, it gives me pleasure and fills my life with meaning. I love it and when I can get someone to see the worth of their life and that the energy of creation and creator is within their reach…Aww my heart…

May you find your great work and may it feed your soul.

What if you’re right?

What if you’re right and we could have anything we want as long as we were willing and able to work towards it without loss of faith?

Go for it!

What if you were right and it really didn’t matter at all, what you choose to look like and what you choose to do?

Be who you want!

What if you are right and the thoughts in your mind are being influenced by perceptions, meaning you are controlling your life with thoughts coming from someone or somewhere else?

Think for yourself!

What if they were wrong and everything they ever said was wrong, would you even know, or care?

Know your own truth!

What if they are right and there is a God and it’s not a person but a force and frankly it wishes you all would just get to it?

So get to it!

Understand your own version of a higher power! It doesn’t make you weak or stupid it frankly makes you smart, you think a human created this world??????? you think we crawled out of pond scum…please people

Use your brain!

What if they were right and it didn’t matter if you were a girl or a boy or neither. And you don’t have to get married or have children or a career?

Choose for yourself!

What if they are right and God doesn’t really care what gender you are, only you know who you are, and who you love!!!

Love yourself!

What if there was no boss of you, ever!

Be free!

What if it doesn’t matter if you exercise or not, or eat right or not or nothing bad would happen if you just started to listen to yourself until you need to fire that stupid voice in your head and cultivate a new better one.

Talk sweet to yourself! For God’s sake stop berating yourself with your parents voice!

What if they are right and you could be anything you wanted to and all you had to do is put your mind to it.

Then just do it!

What if they were right and you sat on your ass this entire lifetime thinking it was one thing and it was something else.

Figure it out, for yourself, they don’t know you!

How many of you will hate when you learn life is a game, and we are the game pieces.

because we are

Really, if you are not living your life, you are being played!

I hate writing what should be obvious…

Can’t fake this

Simplicity is Divinity is a favorite saying and cuts to the chase when confusion arises. The simplest answer is always best and the truth is hard to hide. Write it down, seems that commonsense is becoming hard to come by and people are easily manipulated by fancy words…

I am at anytime surrounded by many enlightened beings here in the greater LA area. There are hundreds of life coaches, spiritual teachers, beings that can give you spiritual gifts, there are a plethora of yogis, masters of every field, so many 800 numbers to call. What is wrong with people? Is it really a mystery that we write our own story, and solve our own problems. No one is going to give you the answers you seek, even if they do take credit cards.

You have to do the work yourself. Your teacher maybe able to move mountains, and is very popular, and powerful but you will still have to do your own work if you wish to evolve during this lifetime. Your teacher will evolve trying to get you to evolve. You have to evolve on your own.

The hardest lesson of all is taking the first step without an audience, or someone holding your hand. Being spiritual when no-one is noticing, doing the right thing because it’s the right thing to do. That day you grow up, make your own choices, speak with your own voice, be authentically you.

We can do what the master does but the true spiritual teachers will point your super seeking mirror right back attcha! They will make you see you are seeking yourself.

That’s how you grow by figuring your own stuff out. Not even Jesus could interfere with the process of those around him, imagine the frustration.

Listening to someones advice is fine, make up your own mind, think with your own head, speak with your own voice. Why are you being a puppet? Why are you so scared to stand up for yourself?

People who are more excited about looking the part of a spiritual teacher than being the teacher might want to understand how the upper world feels about interlopers, its hard to mess with God’s children, I’m not kidding! A person is best served teaching about God if God is driving them to talk. Anyone who thinks to know the mind of God again, might want to check on that connection, and the warning sign that says, dumb ass alert! True spiritual masters are self-evident and when in their presence you are very aware of their presence.

The sun shows great spiritual behavior. Constantly giving, quietly, no one noticing, doing it anyway! Be like the sun in your approach. If you are going to wear spirit beads, let it be because you are going to pray, if you are wearing yoga clothes lets see you in a class, of some kind, if you say you are a person of God then act like a person of God, your spiritual clothes won’t do the  work for you. Frankly none of the spiritual masters are cool with the, bring attention onto yourself proclaiming your closeness to God by what you wear, yah, they don’t say that, ever! It’s the meek shall inherit the Earth.

The most powerful are the most humble, their actions say it all, you can’t fake this!
