How do you meld spirituality with money? My husband is a very spiritual person who is committed to helping people but subsequently has no income. He is very critical of me for my job in advertising which is not my dharma - but I support my family (2 children) and feel unable to make a change as I do not know where our income will come from, and I need to pay for school fees...and everything else! I am very frustrated! Help!
Spirituality is the evolutionary unfoldment of our consciousness toward its full potential. Factors like money, health issues, and relationships are the changing circumstances that support that process of self-realization. As such, for the spiritually inclined, they are included in the spiritual life, but are subservient to your evolutionary or dharmic needs.
In your case, you say advertising is not your dharma, by which I assume you mean you don’t love doing it for its own sake, but in a larger understanding of dharma, it may be serving an essential role in yours and your family’s evolutionary needs right now. And in that sense, it could be your dharma and an important aspect of your spiritual growth.
