Why I love my job!

Why I love my job!

My place where my heart meets my mind

 

I love my job.  I truly do.  I have the privilege of working with people when they are at their most vulnerable.  When they feel they have nowhere else to go and they have hit rock bottom (their words, not mine).  They come to me feeling something is amiss, they are not happy, they are anxious, depressed, angry, the list goes on.

The beauty of what I do is help guide people to slow their mind, feel what is in their body, and help them be present and go deeper than their surface feelings.  I am with them when suffering comes up and they are open and so damn insightful and human.  The human capacity for insight never ceases to astound me.  I get to witness this.  It is humbling and beautiful.

When I was just starting out I thought I had all the answers.  I could hear a little bit of someone’s story and think I had them assessed in my mind.  What arrogance.  Through the years I have been humbled over and over again by their own brilliance.  I sit with my own mind in quiet times and watch what comes up and I am lucky enough to be able to sit with others when they are quiet.  The insights they have are mind-blowing.  They go in directions of insight and healing that I had not even thought of.  Wow, I am awed by them.

Yes, I hear a lot of sad and painful stories.  I hear what we are capable of doing to each other as human beings.  I understand why there is so much unhappiness and anger in the world.  However, I also get to see the human spirit rise up and heal.  To go beyond the surface pain of being human.  I get to wittiness people embrace their pain and connect with the humanness in us all.  We all want to be loved and accepted and I get to help others love and accept themselves.

So, I am a very lucky person – I love my job.  I get to read cool books, meditate, attend teaching; all for the betterment of myself.  I can’t help but want to share it.
