One-Minute Meditations at Work for You
About You and Work
Most of us spend most of our waking hours, most of our lives, doing some kind of work. A common misconception is that only those who receive monetary compensation are truly working. Ask any volunteer, for example, if they work, and you will find quickly that most of them work intensely for no personal income.
A good possibility is that you will find yourself somewhere in a list of people who work, and you might discover that you have carried more than one work activity at a time – currently or at other times in your life:
• Employee (leader, manager, worker) in a corporation or smaller business
• Employee of a nonprofit
• Homemaker (including men)
• Students of all ages
• Military personnel
• Many others
Now, you can realize that this book is an inspiration for improving your workday, everyday. In a few minutes each day, these meditations remind us that there is a power within and beyond us, Spirit, always available to inspire and energize us in our work – no matter what our career and jobs are.
Words are written and spoken symbols that represent our thoughts, emotions, ideas and physical environment. Frequently, the same words mean different things to different people.
The word “God” is often used (in the English language) to represent our individual and group concepts of an all-powerful, all-present, all-knowing and all-loving creator and sustainer of all life in the universe – at one level unseen, and at another level seen in everyone and everything. Sometimes the English word “God” can carry meanings (which might be negative for some people) of religion and dogma rather than spirituality and love.
“Spirit” is the simple, positive word used in this book to denote the active expression of a loving and wise supreme being, active throughout every aspect of our lives – including our work and business lives. Please feel free to substitute your preferred word for Spirit as you read this inspirational book. One-Minute Meditations at Work intends to include everyone and offend no one.
“In the inhalation and exhalation there is an energy and a lively divine Spirit, who supports the breath of life, giving courage to all the people who are in the earth.” — Michael Servetus
January 1 – Abundance
I now accept an infinite supply of good into my work.
Do I think that prosperity is my paycheck, bank account, or mutual fund? I might be limiting my true abundance if that is my thinking. Prosperity, wealth and affluence go well beyond money, and can include a loving family and other relationships, good health and the beauty of nature.
The real source of my prosperity is Spirit, always providing me with divine ideas for my work. There is an infinite supply of new ideas for increasing abundance in all areas of my work. Sometimes just by grace I receive a surprise material gift. At other times, receive the inspiration and energy to work on the gift of a creative idea.
My work provides a wealth of good in all of its forms for others and for me.
