In roughly 11 more days I will be losing my job and beginning the next adventure in my life. And while I don’t quite know where my next journey will take me I do know that a wave of calm and peacefulness has fallen over me. It is certainly unusual to be facing unemployment at this stage of life during these troubling economic times and to not be stressed about the uncertainty of what lies ahead. Maybe it hasn’t sunk in or maybe I’ve just accepted that there is no point in worrying about something I have no control over. Or, it could be that losing a job I couldn’t stand and that was sucking the life out of me bears no ability to provoke fear within me. Either way, I just have this presence about me that knows it will all work out.
A while back I came across a beautifully inspiring video on youtube that features a few minutes of an Alan Watts lecture. I thought at this juncture in my career it would be appropriate to share with my readers in case any of you are facing similar circumstances as me. It also may benefit anyone who finds themselves at a point in life where they just can’t seem to find any meaning to what they are doing. I hope it stirs something within you and gives you a different perspective to what we have otherwise been subtly taught through years of social and economic manipulation. Whatever road I take next will lead to happiness regardless of where the money takes me.
