The purpose of work

We have been taught that we need to work for a living. And that we keep the things we love to do as our hobbies.

Has it ever struck you that this is distorted and weird? Have you ever wondered whether you can do what you love and attract abundance while doing it?

The purpose of work is not to work at all – it is to express the Joy that you are through the activities of your mind and your body and your soul – to give you a means of expression of who you are and who you choose to be. It is not to create a dead-end life, a life of drudgery and sadness and disappointment – it is to create a direct experience of who you really are through the outflowing through you of the creativity and the talent that you are.

You will always attract abundance doing what you love – because doing what you love keeps you in a place of happiness, of gratitude, of waking up in the mornings looking forward to doing what you adore doing.

We have been taught that we earn money through work – let’s look at this – we do unhappy things, create unhappy lives, and then we expect that to bring us abundance – and not the salaries which we are paid, but real abundance. But – when you vibrate at a place of unhappiness, you attract unhappy things, events, occurrences, and you attract unhappy people who agree with your unhappiness and so it feels as if this is really what life is all about.

When you are happy you attract abundance.

When you are happy you make money.

When you are happy you bring to you what you need.


And so if you are working at a job that makes you unhappy, it defeats the whole purpose of what you call work.

You CAN do what you love and create your life. You CAN wake up in the mornings and expect what you need for that day to come to you magically, because you are magic, you are your dreams come true, you are what you want, what you have dreamed of.

You don’t have to spend your lives in drudgery. You can find out who you are, what you have to give, who you want to touch, and how to do it. You can find clarity on this.

The purpose of all this is for you to decide who you are – and your work expresses you.

Abraham- Hicks
