Work can be a masterpiece of joy. This applies to just about any work. We can be cleaning up after horses. Or we can be running a major corporation. We could be earning below minimum wage. Or we could be making a seven figure income.
In just about any case our work can be a masterpiece of joy.
How do we do this? It depends on how we look at it. When we look at things differently, we experience them differently. And quite often the things we’re looking at change.
For example, if we’re doing house cleaning for a living, we can dedicate our work to God and / or our families. We can recognize that we’re bringing order and cleanliness to a part of the world.
We can choose to make the housework a masterpiece of art. Perhaps we can do something special to make the house slightly more beautiful.
We can work while we’re observing our selves with love and observing the environment with love. There are many such processes in this blog.
We can work while improving our ability to see the hidden beauty in everyone and everything.
Intention is key. If we’re working with the intention of getting away from the work, we’re likely to suffer. If we work with the intention of contributing to some worthy cause, our work can be joyous.
If we work to serve our clients, employers, or consumers then the work can be a happy experience.
We can do this even if we’re unemployed or retired. There always some area requiring work. It might be helping ourself. It might be helping friends. It might be some form of volunteer work. It might be working at finding a job. It might be creating a business. It might be doing a blog 🙂
Working with joy improves our overall well being.
