Spirit works for us by working through usSOM pp. 37Because the road was steep and longAnd through a dark and lonely land,God set upon my lips a songAnd put a lantern in my hand.Joyce Kilmer
Accepting work as a spiritual practice requires an attitude of mind that recognizes the Presence of God in all things. If we are to see ourwork as a spiritual practice, we must begin by recognizing that at every moment we can be the vehicle through which Spirit expresses Love and Beauty. In the place of our business, we might feel at times subject to the fluctuations of different personalities and conditions, all beyond the realm of our control. This may be true. However, when we surrender the desire to make things right and yield to the wisdom of Spirit within, we can be effective in transforming our immediate world by celebrating the Truth in every moment.
When work becomes a steep and long road through a dark and lonely land, it is helpful to remind oneself that an invisible Presence is moment by moment working through us to achieve a glorious end. The work we are currently engaged in may or may not be our life’s vocation. Our current work may be a stepping stone or a dream come true. Whatever the case, our work is always this: An opportunity to deepen our spiritual relationship to the world around us.
I affirm Spirit's light within me casts a clear light on all that lies before me. The labor of my hands today becomes a service to Creation. I am at peace with my world. I give thanks for my life and all that is in it.
