Thank You Thursday: Life's Work

Be thankful this day for Life's Work.
Our life's work is completed in phases. Some of us are very clear as to what we desire to be as a profession as children, and some of us mull around trying everything until we find it or it finds us. The reason why we choose a certain profession is for various reasons; it can be a result of life altering experience, a family business, a lucrative venture, or something bringing us pure joy. The profession chosen is not our life’s work, yet it’s a starting point. We all have a starting point to bring us closer to the true life’s work. Each phase of the life's work is in preparation for the sole purpose we incarnated during a certain time period of the soul's journey. The soul's journey is one of love, peace and growth, yet when incarnated, we do not feel as such until we have matured as spiritual beings. Our maturity can happen over life times or in one incarnation. Our view of the manifestations around us contributes to overall all well-being and evolution of the planet and humanity. The question now becomes, how can we make our life's work become more effortless by surrendering to the flow to evolve self and others?
As a child in my youth, as other children, we were always taught to work hard, study, learn values, etc. All of which was of value to give parameters and guidelines for the little explorers. As children, we tend to discover life on our own terms, by what our parents called getting into trouble. Yes we eventually learned what we could and couldn't do, but this behavior was to appease others, not self. If we had our way as children, we would run amuck, until we got tired of causing havoc and exploring. What most of us fail to realize is we are still in the pattern of our youth. Meaning, we abide by the guidelines set before us, which is a good habit to have, yet we forget to roam free. The select few choosing to roam free continue to grow and have balance in their life. Other adults feel there must be structure and hard work to accomplish what is desired. The idea of working hard or having a good work ethic comes from having the guidelines as child. The result of this is becoming ridged, being set in your ways, not living up to the full potential, and being a shadow of self.  
Being a shadow of self cause’s low self-esteem and skew in how humanity is functioning. The thought of hard work and struggle equals rewards is a myth. A friend of mine shared a quote with me I would like to share with you, summing up the thought process.
Most rarely align with their true power, because it seems illogical to them that there is power in relaxation, in letting go, or in love or joy or bliss. Most people do not understand that their true power lies in releasing resistance—which is the only obstacle to their true power.

Most people do not expect their path to great abundance to be one of ease and of joy. They have been taught that struggle and hardship and sacrifice are requirements that must be met before the reward of great abundance can be realized. Most do not understand that the very struggle they deliberately involve themselves in, in their quest for success and advantage, actually works against them.

There are so many things that you have been taught to believe that are counter to the powerful Laws of the Universe that it is difficult for you to think your way out. And that is the reason that we present this path of much less resistance.
We want you to breathe rather than try, to relax rather than offer effort, to smile rather than struggle, to be rather than do. For your true power is experienced only from inside the Vortex.

--- Abraham Hicks

Think about when we struggle, and how much emotional and spiritual pain we are in. The solution to break free from the cycle is already there, yet we so blinded from old lessons and habits, we choose not to see anything else through faith or otherwise.

Our life's work is one of progression of effortless flow. How many times have we said, "I wish I was a kid again." Why do we wish to return to our youth, is it because now as adults we have responsibilities? The responsibilities as adults are material and spiritual, yet the ones as children are spiritual only. As children all we had to do was to listen, now as adults we have to listen and act. A balance must be created to live the life desired, not one of shadow. When we are in alignment with our work, all does flow effortless. When we are misaligned, we agonize over choices needed to be made and if we wait too long the choice is made for us, time resulting in anger because that wasn't the choice truly desired. We innately know and understand the choices made to live this life in manner suitable to progress self and assist in the evolution of others.

When we progress, so do others. It is the natural order of evolution. When one person can see other doing once thought impossible, others follow suite. Life's impossible become possible, when we release the myth of struggle and hardship.

Be thankful this day and everyday to know the life boundaries to move pass them resulting in evolution.
Be thankful this day and everyday for the effortless flow of life to release the myth of struggle and hardship.
Be thankful this day and everyday to know and clam your personal power to live in abundance.
