Work and Fulfillment.


When your mind and heart are truly open abundance will flow to you effortlessly and easily.


I have recently began my working career, and I am struggling with the long working days that seem to bring me very little fulfillment and happiness. Throughout the working day I often feel empty and most days this feeling comes home with me. I have committed myself to a take on journey to spiritual enlightenment, but find it hard to stay on track while I am at work. I have found that my long days at my desk job often drain the spiritual progress I have made out of me. I know that I will soon make a large life change and leave this job, but until I can do that, what are some exercises I can practice while at work to make my day feel more fulfilling?


I’m not sure I understand what you mean by ‘staying on track’ at work. The spirituality you express at work is not the same as your meditation practice you do before and after work. Let the fulfillment of work be what it is, a means to earn a living while you make a contribution of kindness and helpfulness to others, and let you spiritual fulfillment come through your inner experience of meditation.

    Having been in the situation I can understand. I think you have to take a break in your day where for 15 minutes either you can include a meditation exercise or read something spiritual. Or at the end of the day instead of coming home and watching tv or doing anything else you might have to shower and perform your meditation and reading your spiritual scriptures/books. As you make it a daily practice like @fieberchen commented below you might start to move towards knowing that spiritual practice is like brushing your teeth, and eating your meals a part of your daily life so you will look for a career that allows you that time. I think that is the downside of Corporate America that in this economy a lot of people are wearing multiple hats to maximize the return on their salaries and that leads to a stressful work life as well as not being able to take a break to nourish your mind, body and soul. Wishing you the best, and willing you to incorporate spirituality as part of your daily routine. Love and Peace!

    Nice advice for those in a position to do those things. Can`t help but wonder what the author of the original question works in, but my office (local government in London, England) won`t allow more than a single plant and no pictures. There`s an aggressive `jump to it` attitude and we`re being overwhelmed with more work than we can complete in a day, even when working flat out. 12 people share a printer that jams and my team leader wrote a lengthy (almost 1/2 of A4 page) rant at me at 6.55pm one evening, telling me how I should be telling her more, fitting it all in AND taking my breaks (no early starts, working through lunch or after hours), and they keep raising the amount of work we have to do. I`m at screaming point - and they won`t grant me time off for annual leave so I`ve missed 2 job interviews. We can`t even get time off to see another potential employer. My health is deteriorating (stomach ulcers) and if we take time off sick, we are punished and must pay it back from salary or annual leave. I`m so strung out now and keep having nightmares about work, but can`t leave until there`s another job to go to. Spirituality? I don`t know what will help.

    Try some pranayama. Simple breathing exercises you can do almost anywhere and anytime.
