Have you ever gave a thought about the spiritual attitude towards work? How it works and what would it look like? If not, then give it a thought.
Today, here in this article, we will exploring the spiritual side or attitude towards work. So without any further delay, Let’s begin!
If you want to be a true doer of divine works, your first aim must be to be totally free from all desire and self-regarding ego. All your life must be an offering and a sacrifice to the Supreme. Your only object in action shall to be serve, to receive, to fulfil, to become a manifesting instrument of the Supreme
You must grow in the divine consciousness till there is no difference between your will and Supreme, no motive except her impulsion in you, no action that is not her conscious action in you and through you. Until you are capable of this complete dynamic identification, you have to regard yourself as a soul and body creation for the service of Supreme.
All stress of egoistic choice, all hankering after personal profit, all stipulation of self-regarding desire must be extirpated from the nature. There must be no demand for fruit and no seeking for reward. The only fruit for you is the pleasure of the Supreme. Your only reward a constant progression in divine consciousness and calm and strength and bliss. The joy of service and the joy of inner growth through works is the sufficient recompense of the selfless worker.
But a time will come when you will feel more and more that you are the instrument and not the worker. You will realise that the Supreme not only inspires and guides, but initiates and carries out your works. All your movements are originated by her, all your powers are of Supreme, mind, life and body are conscious and joyful instruments of Supreme action, moulds for the divine manifestation in the physical universe.
Let no demand or insistence creep in to strain the purity of the self-giving and the sacrifice. There must be no attachment to the work or the result, no laying down of conditions, no claim to possess the Power that should possess you, no pride of the instruments, no vanity or arrogance. Nothing in the mind or in the vital or physical parts should be suffered to distort to its own use or seize for its own personal and separate satisfaction the greatness of the forces that are acting through you.
Let your faith, your sincerity, your purity of aspiration be absolute and pervasive of all the planes and layers of the being, then every disturbing element and distorting influence will progressively fall away from nature.
The last stage of this perfection will come when you are completely indentified with the Supreme and feel yourself to be no longer another and separate being, instruments, servant or worker but truly a child and eternal portion of Supreme consciousness and force.
