INSIGHTS- 4, 5 & 6
has been laying emphasis on the kind of work / occupation/ career we choose to take up or when and why we choose to shift from one career to another career, at the right time. These ''Insights'' reinforce one thing very strongly and that is:
NOTE- Haven't we all heard of the popular quote- ''Work is Worship'' ? This clearly implies that, all of us who are ''working/ having paid careers'' or even others who are selflessly working be it as stay-at-home Moms or people in the field of social work , human welfare and politics are meant to be doing something ''DIVINE''...Hence it is essential for us to bring in our ''DIVINITY'' TO THE ''DIVINE WORK'' WE DO...IF WE AREN'T , WE MUST INTROSPECT THE REASONS AS TO WHY THIS ISN'T HAPPENING...IF WE AREN'T LAZY BY NATURE...WELL THEN THE ''ONE PROMINENT REASON'' FOR NOT BEING ABLE TO TREAT ''WORK AS DIVINE WORSHIP'' IS THAT, WE ARE INDEED NOT ''DOING THAT WORK WHICH IS ALIGNED WITH OUR TRUE BEING AND LIFE PURPOSE'' ! TIME TO CHECK YOUR DIRECTION ! We spend ''major part of each day'' focusing on ''the work/ career/ occupation/ job'' that we have chosen. Hence it is of ''vital importance'' that each one of us chooses to do ''what we love doing the most''. Else all that we're welcoming in our lives is ''mechanical existence , unhappiness and possibly an untimely death'' !
When we passionately pursue our ''true life's purpose'' and ''do what we love to do the most'' , we make that unique difference to our field of expertise. As a result, we invite, not just great income and recognition for our talents but we also invite ''peace, prosperity, light and energy'' from this universe and stay ''uplifted. We become ''torch bearers of inspiration'' and make it even more easier for several other individuals to embrace their ''divinity within'' and live their ''true life's purpose'' by bringing in that ''divinity to the work'' that they choose to do.
SIGNS OF ''THE SHIFT'' OR ''AN END'' TOWARDS A ''NEW BEGINNING'' !
1) This is the stage ( 38-45 yrs of age or even in one's early or mid 30s ) when and why so many feel compelled to walk away from careers that they were able to maintain up until this point, but no longer! Many derive the courage and strength to make that shocking transition , in the eyes of a lot of other people who believe that this person must be loony to give up a lucrative job/career in search of the ''unknown''...ONE FINE DAY, THEY JUST RESIGN EVEN FROM THE ''BEST DESIGNATED POST'' THAT THEY HELD AND ''THE BEST PAY PACKAGE'' TOO, IN ORDER TO MAKE THAT ''SHIFT THAT THEY DREAMT OF'' FOR SOMETIME OR LONG
2) Sometimes turbulent ''shifts'' can happen in one's 30s or 40s ....If you don't make that transition, life / nature will give you a ''rock solid jolt'' from your comfortable chair that you will be forced to ''make that shift''. If you are not preparing yourself for your ''life's highest purpose'', steadily when things are all okay, when you have the time and a breather to make that transition gradually ....NATURE WILL KICK YOU WITH A ''CRISIS'' FOR YOU TO WORK UNDER PRESSURE TO '' GROW FROM THAT STAGNANT CATERPILLAR TO A BUTTERFLY'' ! BE READY ! An external/ internal factor let's say a family crisis (if you've been stagnating as a homemaker while you have had a bigger dream....you may end up abruptly experiencing divorce or widowhood for you to wake up and do something constructive with your own life ). A recession / internal politics or at times for your own lack of interest you will experience a ''burn out'' , prolonged illness that calls for you to transform....or you will be sacked/ fired (we discussed some examples in an earlier ''Insight'' of people who got sacked after which they did wonders with their lives- Walt Disney, Oprah Winfrey...J.K. Rowling and many more )
3) Prolonged illness depicted in the above point, is most often the case when '' you are dying a slow death'' due to the ''work that you don't enjoy doing''. These are psychosomatic diseases...like Diabetes, High Blood Pressure, Heart Attacks that one can suffer from even in one's 30s . You work must give you a ''healthy & relaxing feeling of joy '' even when you are working very hard
4) However in certain cases even ''when one loves doing what he or she does'', in terms of work , one needs to ''maintain a balance'' and not go ''overboard'' and turn workaholic- giving up sleep, skipping meals and exercises. This ''overdose or imbalance in passion'' can also have adverse effects on health !
