IS YOUR JOB USEFUL AND FULFILLING? WHAT IS YOUR VOCATION? DREAM ON
Dear Readers:

Just like every seed grows and develops into its full potential according to a divine blueprint (an acorn seed never turns into a blueberry bush), every human also has a divine blueprint, and a special task in life.

Some people know really really on what they want to BE, and dedicate their lives to that. Others DISCOVER their true direction through bouts of this and that, and sometimes by facing a brick wall which forces us to turn around and choose a new path.

If we are aware, signs or encounters with others will also be placed in our path by divine hand, to point us in a direction where we will find fulfillment AND BE ABLE TO SERVE OTHERS.

In the beginning, I was envious of those who knew right from the start that they wanted to be a carpenter or a doctor etc. I have been down several diverse paths, and it is only recently that I realized they were actually all contributors to my learning process, and also part of my "mission".

"Mission" may seem like an imposing word, but with the world as it stands, nothing short of missions - pursued by every individual - is actually going to be strong enough to turn things around. Too much energy is wasted in directions which are futile and harmful, and which involve wastage or resources and talent.

My question is: IS YOUR JOB USEFUL AND FULFILLING? Or is it pointless, destructive and just a way to earn money.

My second question is: WHAT IS YOUR VOCATION? Imagine that ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE, and that there will be NO OBSTACLES WHATEVER IN YOUR WAY. What would you choose? And how would this benefit humanity?

DREAM ON!!!!

30 years as a pastry chef loved it but I have a different interest now. Due to concerns about air pollution I have now started down the path of natural medicine and extracts/drinks made from plants trees and fungi. There's a lack of knowledge here public wise but hopefully I can help to bridge the gap :)

Good thread OP!

Intersting AC. Are you happy about the quality of materials you are using? How long will the buildings last? Humanity would of course be served well if they are high quality and if they last a very long time ....100 years, a thousand years ....

Sounds familiar ..... I always wanted to be an artist, AND NOW I AM. So (excuse the pun), i have BEEN THRU THAT. Imagine that the aerospace industry is vastly reduced (and I think this will be the case eventually) and that money is no issue: what would be your dream occupation then?

I work as a seamstress' assistant. I have been sewing since I was a little girl. For the most part I like learning new skills from her, but I am currently starting to have the same thought and feelings I had before when I was working at cafes: my labor is being used towards someone else's responsibilities. I would like to keep sewing, I like making useful and beautiful things out of used linens and such.

I love this thread! Such a good thing to think about, and maybe start some doing!

It's a play on words because I write a lot on foodie threads.
Palette can refer to a range of colours. A platform used for moving things is a pallet. And your preference of flavors in food is your palate. ... Someone who tastes slight nuances in food is said to have a well-developed palate, and someone who likes only fancy food is said to have a sophisticated palate.

A range of tastes instead of a range of colours...The entire English language is a spell really...

So I have fun with 'spelling'.

Commercial finance. I've financed tens of millions of dollars in everything from commercial buildings, equipment, inventory, receivables, trucks, you name it. I've reviewed the private tax returns and financial statements of some of our nation's most industrious entrepreneurs that are in the trenches every day building their businesses. Finance is a very tough, rough and tumble, competitive business, and I am taking a breather while I weigh other career options. Looking at something quieter and less stressful, possibly going back to school.

Sewing is a wonderful skill, Wildflower. Thank you answering. And you have succinctly pinpointed the "dissonance" in your situation - that you have more potential which is not yet being "lived". The step from being employed to self-employment is presently a large one, not without risk but always the start of a new era. It is a good time to envision what - in perfect circumstances - you would like to do, or what would be your ideal working conditions. To produce things of beauty, and which are useful, is a great combination. Sewing requires patience and great attention to detail - exemplary qualities. So congratulations.

THANK YOU for that explanation, Lance. The video was also "spot on" - so "hell" is weaved into "hello", and at the weekend we are "weakened". There is indeed a great power in words. In Germany, where I live, Germans do not have an identification card: they have a "Personalausweis". "Personal" means "staff", as in people in employment. Also, "I would like" is "Ich kriege". "Kriegen" also means to make war. Words are very powerful. With a vast increase in awareness, and better choice of words, we can have a hugely positive effect.

I am a police, fire, EMS and 911 dispatcher/operator. I’d say it is a useful and meaningful line of work however, it slowly drains the life out of you. I used to be an incredibly active and healthy person but after a decade of sitting at a desk for 12 hour shifts and listening to all the crap society has to offer I have suffered. My health has declined, my sense of humor is macabre and most people would think I’m uncaring but in reality I’m just jaded and cynical. The majority of society sleepwalks through life, content with their routine and do not want to deviate from it. The reality is that all manner of horrible/evil people exist and do nefarious things on a constant basis, day/ night, and you will in all likelihood never hear about it. Most people prefer it that way, to stay willfully blind to the evil and accidental horrors of the world. After 10 years, I know better. I work directly under the Office of Emergency management and I consequently am a very prepared person.

This in a way relates to what I wish to do as opposed to what I actually do. I have worked dozens of jobs over the years...HVAC installation and repair, general construction, server/waiter, bar back/bartender, welder and steel fabricator, hazardous grade electric installer...etc., etc., but my true passion is living a “simple” life on a homestead of my making in the countryside, raise a few animals, grow some food, hunt/fish...and I am in the process of signing on my best friend to my business license as a 50/50 member so we can create outdoor living products for people who love the outdoors and similar adventurous lifestyles. Like anything else in life, all it takes is time and money and motivation.

Re: IS YOUR JOB USEFUL AND FULFILLING? WHAT IS YOUR VOCATION? DREAM ON
This is so inspiring, WG; first of all, thank you for those many years of service in your job - it sounds like you were continually bombarded with humanity's negative activities. I am imagining that you have so much experience and information which you could impart for others, but I also imagine that - in present circumstances - very few would believe you, as you already mentioned below. I anticipate that later on, circumstances will change and that your voice will be heard.

Nature is very healing. Congratulations on changing your path.

This is why music has such great potential - no words needed, but everyone can be moved by it in some way. Hopefully we will move on - eventually - from words to TELEPATHY.

THANK YOU for that explanation, Lance. The video was also "spot on" - so "hell" is weaved into "hello", and at the weekend we are "weakened". There is indeed a great power in words. In Germany, where I live, Germans do not have an identification card: they have a "Personalausweis". "Personal" means "staff", as in people in employment. Also, "I would like" is "Ich kriege". "Kriegen" also means to make war. Words are very powerful. With a vast increase in awareness, and better choice of words, we can have a hugely positive effect.


Thank you for sharing, Lance. I find great satisfaction in renovating and building. So practical, and you see the end result, and it is useful. May I ask about the phrase in your signature: about the "palette" going to waste? DO you means skills going to waste?


...

 Quoting: Colour Crusader


It's a play on words because I write a lot on foodie threads.
Palette can refer to a range of colours. A platform used for moving things is a pallet. And your preference of flavors in food is your palate. ... Someone who tastes slight nuances in food is said to have a well-developed palate, and someone who likes only fancy food is said to have a sophisticated palate.

A range of tastes instead of a range of colours...The entire English language is a spell really...

 Quoting: Colour Crusader


There is an Icke video with Credo Mutwa (sp?) where Credo mentions that all the words seemed manipulated to make everyone angry with one another. Yes indeed words have power. The world is made of them. Argue that point, without using words...

Re: IS YOUR JOB USEFUL AND FULFILLING? WHAT IS YOUR VOCATION? DREAM ON
Dear Readers:

Just like every seed grows and develops into its full potential according to a divine blueprint (an acorn seed never turns into a blueberry bush), every human also has a divine blueprint, and a special task in life.

Some people know really really on what they want to BE, and dedicate their lives to that. Others DISCOVER their true direction through bouts of this and that, and sometimes by facing a brick wall which forces us to turn around and choose a new path.

If we are aware, signs or encounters with others will also be placed in our path by divine hand, to point us in a direction where we will find fulfillment AND BE ABLE TO SERVE OTHERS.

In the beginning, I was envious of those who knew right from the start that they wanted to be a carpenter or a doctor etc. I have been down several diverse paths, and it is only recently that I realized they were actually all contributors to my learning process, and also part of my "mission".

"Mission" may seem like an imposing word, but with the world as it stands, nothing short of missions - pursued by every individual - is actually going to be strong enough to turn things around. Too much energy is wasted in directions which are futile and harmful, and which involve wastage or resources and talent.

My question is: IS YOUR JOB USEFUL AND FULFILLING? Or is it pointless, destructive and just a way to earn money.

My second question is: WHAT IS YOUR VOCATION? Imagine that ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE, and that there will be NO OBSTACLES WHATEVER IN YOUR WAY. What would you choose? And how would this benefit humanity?

DREAM ON!!!!

And those who "knew right from the start" maybe had their focus on a fixed goal without realizing the value of the journey to obtain it. Oftentimes people view the years of training/studying as a chapter to get over and done with as fast s possible...seeing not that every day is full of life's lessons and graduation happens every time a challenge is besieged, a fear overcome, a grudge forgiven, a conflict sorted. Every time a choice i made that considers the best for all involved a door to greater wisdom opens.

-And if you pay attention to such matters you realize that there's a Universal red thread in every aspect of life and that it has to do with a Greater meaning in all we do. A desire may then arise to find ways to serve this Greater development and all of a suuden you find your "missions" -creative ways to weave the red thread of Divine Beauty, Truth and Goodness into your various paths and the journey becomes the goal...

Re: IS YOUR JOB USEFUL AND FULFILLING? WHAT IS YOUR VOCATION? DREAM ON
Oh - I missed this one. Apologies AC and thank you for sharing. This is really incredibly interesting - what insight did you gain from dealing and wheeling in this sort of world, I wonder? Could you ever envisage a world without money? This would be a world in which the level of spirituality is so high that everyone would, of their own accord, want to contribute daily to society, and who would never take any more than they really need. Having been intrenched in the world of finance as you have, this is perhaps an unbelievable perspective. What skills would you offer a moneyless world, I wonder? This is something to ponder, because this is where we are going long-term ...

Commercial finance. I've financed tens of millions of dollars in everything from commercial buildings, equipment, inventory, receivables, trucks, you name it. I've reviewed the private tax returns and financial statements of some of our nation's most industrious entrepreneurs that are in the trenches every day building their businesses. Finance is a very tough, rough and tumble, competitive business, and I am taking a breather while I weigh other career options. Looking at something quieter and less stressful, possibly going back to school.

Re: IS YOUR JOB USEFUL AND FULFILLING? WHAT IS YOUR VOCATION? DREAM ON
Yes, thank you for your thoughts, Light Assistant. Because we are afflicted by a "veil of forgetfulness" when we incarnate here, we cannot remember our original tasks which we set out with. Those with access to an "inner knowing", which is actually their divine core within, will know that they have to follow a certain path, even if it is seemingly pointless or boring. It will be a step on the road to a greater goal, and lots of steps form the path .....

I drive for a living. Long run, non-emergent medical appointments.

I've been all over the State of New Mexico, and to El Paso, TX (El Paso....hiding ).

The job is perfect for me, because I love to drive and travel, and I'm a healer. I really couldn't ask for a better "job"....I mean, most days it doesn't even feel like work. Heh, if I've done a long, long run (450+ miles), then a short run (140 miles) feels like a paid vacation....chuckle

It's a job I ADORE. My bosses are very fair and I love them....the best bosses I've had in my entire 61 years of living.

In that case, you are indeed a gypsy, in for a cosmic ride in the future, perhaps, as the words we use will become reality. We are actually all citizens of the cosmos, just quarantined at the moment, but later we will have access to the cosmic space highways, LOL! I will be looking out for you, fellow traveller! Great to hear that you are happy in your job.

Re: IS YOUR JOB USEFUL AND FULFILLING? WHAT IS YOUR VOCATION? DREAM ON
Well, life and jobs are not mutually exclusive, are they, Festus H? If they are, what a waste of 8 or more hours a day doing something you hate, in order to spend the rest of the time doing something you like..... The vision is that EVERYONE LIVES THEIR VOCATION. If that were so, everyone would be enthusiastic about every single second of their lives. Of course there are not so pleasant tasks which must be done, but the more joy and fulfillment in our "jobs", and the more quality in our productions, and the more love and kindness we extend to others, the happier everyone is going to be. The end result is a very high level of spirituality IN WHICH THERE IS NO NEED FOR A MONEY SYSTEM AND NO BILLS TO PAY. SO what is the priority? To scramble and buckle down within this debilitating system, or to CREATE SOMETHING NEW THROUGH A RADICAL INCREASE IN AWARENESS AND IMPROVEMENT OF HUMAN BEHAVIOUR WORLDWIDE?

Jobs aren't meant to be useful and fullfilling. Life is. Jobs just pay the bills. Get your priorities in order.

Im having such a hard time finding my vocation. Been working just to work for several years. Cant seem to grasp the inner self to find ways to do what I enjoy whilst be able to make it a thing to support me.
