and Business Collide
By Rev. Paul V. Scholl
You know its true. The time
has come. You just cant take it anymore. You
finally recognize what youre doing with your
life and you just dont like it. You see the
career path youve been on for what it has been,
but you know it is time to do what you have been missing
most in your life. You want to do what is fun and
brings enthusiasm to your life. Change is evident.
For the first time, you recognize the boss for who
they are and where they are in life. For the first
time, you are honest with yourself about the demands
of the job, the stress that then permeates the rest
of your life, the silly sacrifices youve made
with your family and friends, the hours of extra work
that never seemed to get validated. You see the effects
of it all on your life and you wonder, "What
have I been doing?"
Sitting there, feeling a little confused and disheveled,
your spirit screams at you "For Gods Sake,
Wake Up!" and you do. You begin to recognize
that it wasnt all for naught, that you did have
impact on people and the company youve served.
Youve helped others to change their lives for
the better. You can see resistance and competition
more clearly, and youve matured to be able to
handle it. You see exactly where the "dollar"
fits, and where it doesnt for you any longer.
A smile comes to your face.
Emmett Fox once wrote, "If only you could love
enough, you would be the happiest and most powerful
being in the world". And now, you know its
true. The world of spirit makes more sense. It becomes
more important somehow. Love matters more than ever.
Priorities change as simple things like looking up
at the stars are more valuable than working late to
complete some report on a Friday night. You get to
know who you really are inside.
This awakening spirit in so many people around the
world is what has created this rise in affluence,
not the old perception of dependency. Spirit always
goes beyond the organizations of the world because
it didnt originate its energy in the organizations
of this world. Spirit came from the Creator that divined
us all. When we come to that realization and we begin
to wholly surrender an open and continuous communication
to the wonder of the cosmos we reach our potential
in every step.
Imagine two comets colliding. The particles burst
into a million or more directions never to know themselves
as a comet again. Each particle remembers that instant
of freedom. Each particle remembers that first burst
into the unknown. That frozen moment at the point
of impact remains deep in memory, but the space that
it contained is also now free. By gaining its
freedom of space and spirit it gave freedom of space
and spirit to millions. It became free of the material,
the old way of being. It became free of the defined
world it once understood and then understood more.
It became free of time, but became full of the everythingness
that is the memory of synchronicity itself.
What impact would freedom to be "You" bring
into your life? Do what you love. Do as you dream.
You are here to teach that experience, that joy to
your children and loved ones. The reward is a life
