You shine like a beacon in a dark world*
If you regularly find yourself in a setting that feels out of sync with your spiritual nature, here’s a thought:
Your life isn’t always about you. Sometimes it’s about what you were put here to teach others.
For over 3 years I worked in a predominantly military organization. Basement cubicle. No windows. 80% of the workforce dressed in fatigues. Nonstop focus on war.
I felt so totally out of place and wondered how a new Age, peace-loving child like me ended up there. Then it hit me. I was having a quiet influence on my co-workers. First they observed, then commented on, then adopted my odd holistic practices. They asked questions, eager to learn more.
One small candle can light up a dark room. Be a beacon.
