The point is not to work less and it's also not about overworking. It's about loving what we do for work.

The point is not to work less and it's also not about overworking. It's about loving what we do for work where it doesn't feel like work and we feel inspired to continue serving the world with our gifts until our bodies are too old to carry us. But even then, we have something to offer. My Guru was preaching, translating scriptures literally till his last dying breath from his bed. The common emphasis that I see some coaches put on self-employment is the ability to work less and have more free time to do whatever you want. While that can be incredibly fulfilling to have a ton of free time to travel, read, grow plants, cook food, love lovers, etc. (and having space for all those things in our lives is so key to a balanced fulfilling life), eventually if we were only serving our senses without serving others with our gifts, we would get bored, and all that free time wouldn't be as valuable until we were using it to serve others in the highest way, with our gifts, with our authenticity, with our devotion. So I reject the notion of freedom coming from free time, though of course free time can definitely empower us to feel more free. I believe true freedom starts from within, and it radiates outward by connecting with trust, courage, and an I'm-fucking-ready-no-more-stagnancy-I-love-myself-enough-to-fully-devote-myself-to-what-I-know-I-was-born-to-do-let's-get-to-WERK kinda attitude.... and then serving in the ways we love the most deeply. That, I believe, is a true experience of freedom. ⚡️⚡️⚡️ Day 3. #BloombyBeingYou #Iamaservant #Iamdevoted

ps. Also, sometimes our service looks like serving ourselves and investing in our healing. That is just as important so that we can heal to the point of feeling ready to serve others <3
