Being aligned with your true work produces a peace unlike any other.
There is no conflict.
There is no separation between what you want to be doing and what you are doing.
They are exactly the same.
We have been pushed, prodded, educated, counseled, guided to go in certain directions which our civilization and culture consider to be good or necessary.
But are they contributing to happiness?
Mainly, I think, they contribute to earning a living and the ability to buy things, i.e. consumerism.
Making my true work my priority has been an interesting and quite difficult challenge.
I finally became determined to find out what it is.
Since there were so many obstacles, and since I had been following a different course for so many years, I decided it must be very important to make that discovery.
Now that I am doing it, it feels like the most natural thing in the world, which of course, it is.
It is natural to incline toward the work you love.
You will make the most contribution to society with it as you fulfill your own desires to serve in the way you are most capable.
You will be the richest you have ever known.
More and more avenues will open to you to be fulfilled and to enrich others.
Of course it returns to you.
But that was never the point in true work,now, was it?
