Bring The Soul To Work Day

I was going to entitle this article Being Spiritual At Work. However, I decided against it as it rather impossible to “be spiritual. " You always are spiritual! Trying to be spiritual would be like trying to fall asleep, or trying to meditate, it just happens - the harder you “try" the more elusive it will be. However, that being said, we can prepare our minds and allow the awareness of our spirit to guide us through the day, even a hectic workday.

If all of us lived on a mountaintop with nothing to do but meditate all day we would not need to remind ourselves of these principles. However, if you're like me, you go to work, have a job, sit in traffic, and interact with a great variety of people. These interactions can tend to draw us away from reality into a sort of hypnotic state we mistake for reality. The following are three tips on how you can live from the level of the soul (even in bumper to bumper traffic).

The Principle of 10. Imagine a very stressful problem comes up at work. I am sure many of you have encountered situations in which the parties involved feel that the world is coming to an end because of this ordeal. Some people live their lives believing the most trivial of matters are the very end of their well being. When these situations occur remember the principle of 10.

10 minutes: The temporary problem may get worse - and stress level may begin to climax

10 hours: The issue will most likely start to dissolve- unless it's a very big temporary problem

10 days: Most issues with the exception of major life events will have diminished in the mind

10 Month: Ten months in our society is ancient history. Scientists state we actually regenerate the majority of the cells in our body in about eleven months time.

10 Years: How much is this problem going to affect you in ten years?

100 Years: Your life is full of good decisions and bad ones, most people think back and say I shouldn't have worried so much.

10,000 Years: At this level our current problems seem very small. Yet if we were traveling to the other side of the universe at the speed of light we would not have left our solar system.

Star in Your Own Movie. The human being is the only creature that is able to be aware of his or her own presence. This awareness keeps us in touch with the Infinite. Imagine a camera in the corner of your office or workspace. Watch yourself as you are watching a movie. Observe the way you act, communicate, carry yourself, and even how you think about situations. This exercise will enable you to recognize your conditioned thinking and empower you to live your ideals.

Break for Breath. The benefits of taking a deep breath periodically throughout the day are countless. Taking a deep breath has been shown to reduce stress, tension, assist communication, and increase performance. Most of all it will help you become aware of the soul that exists that is all that truly exists. The temporal lives we conduct and problems we encounter in them are not nearly as significant as the truth of your Being.
