The False Duality Between "Job" And "Service"

This is a wonderful "problem" to have and to engage with. It challenges all of us to serve from where we stand, not from where we think we ought to be. Where we stand is ever and always the present moment - we are never elsewhere, all superstitions and "occurrings" to the contrary! And so we will always serve from where we stand, be it in volunteerism, corporate America, politics, the world of NGOs, at home with our loved ones, alone on the trail, on the line, sharing in the Circle. As we live our lives as stewards of love and possibility, where would we not choose to serve? Every venue in life calls out to us and even the most "unlikely" (the boardroom, perhaps?) are openings for healing and workability. A world that works at every level and for all time is made from all of these!
