Work and Passion
Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.
I remember when in college, many were being herded into teaching beacuse there seemed a need in the job force. But by the time we had graduated, teaching jobs were scarce. The same things happens over and over again.
This is another way that scarcity can direct our lives. Often when we shape our interests around what others need, we wind up selling our chance at happiness for what we think will be securee. But while supply and demand may work on paper, it can buld a loveless life in the world.
This is why finding what we love, though it make take years, is building a life of passion. For what makes you come alive can keep you alive, whether you are paid well for it or not. And beyond the fashion of the job market, a life of passion makes us a healthy cell in the body of the world!
This week’s Soul Challenge:
*center yourself and allow the things that stir you to come into your heart. it may be as siple as watching a cande flicker or running in the wind
*breathe freely, and just feel how these things affect your whole body and being
*when you are able, discuss with a loved one what makes you come alive.
