In today’s world, it’s a challenge to simply keep up with all of our appointments. We need to be in work meetings, at school plays, visit the dentist, get our annual checkups, celebrate the milestones of our friends and family, and so on. Many of us have more than one calendar to track work, family, and individual appointments. It can feel as if we are living two, three, even four separate lives.
And while it’s normal to play different roles in life, we thrive when we are connected to the brilliance of our one and only soul. On a deeper level, we should only be living one multifaceted and sacred life.
It is a myth that our work lives are relegated to our professional lives. Our work lives are inextricably tied with our personal experiences. A separate and isolated professional life does not exist.
This week’s intention
A life that separates the person from the professional does not stem from wholeness. Separation is draining and ineffective; you want to bring your full self into work and back home again. The only way to do that is to get (and stay) connected spiritually to the part of you that does not change based on environment or role.
My intention is to deepen my spiritual connection.
Take time this week to access your priorities.
- Have you been preoccupied with the management of your separate lives?
- How committed have you been to your spiritual practice lately?
- If you looked at your task list and priorities would you see time for soul work?
If you suspect that you have wandered away from your higher goals, this is the week to start realigning your thoughts, habits, and life. What that means in practical terms is that you need to make more time to pray, mediate, journal, attend services, study, or do whatever it is that you do to reconnect with your soul. That is our only focus this week.
May you experience a sweet renewal and I’ll see you soon.
