A Quote by Michael Carroll on buddhism, work, honesty, growth, and spiritual journey

Work becomes our spiritual journey when our destination is no longer just becoming more successful or more wealthy, or getting a paycheck, promotion, or job security, but when we also work to resolve a most fundemental question: Can we be at home in our lives - can we be open, honest, and at ease under all circumstances, moment by moment?

A Quote by Michael Carroll on buddhism and work

If we take a moment to slow down and open up to our work circumstances, we will discover that work is continually inviting us to help, not hide; to listen openly, not to close up; to connect, not detach; to perfect our skillfulness, not put it in question.

A Quote by Michael Carroll on buddhism, suffering, work, and learning

The daily grind, the successes and failures, the hard work and stress, all gradually unfold as a profound teaching. And central to that teaching was the realization that the spiritual path is nothing other than living our very life, fully and confidently, in the immediate moment - and that nothing can be excluded, especially not our jobs.
