a better position to know what it is you want from your life work. Looking within and knowing oneself is one ofrepparttar first steps to finding what you want to be doing as work inrepparttar 132406 world. Part of this seeking is

aligning oneself with their Higher Power each day. How does one do this? By quietingrepparttar 132407 mind and seeking withinrepparttar 132408

answers to life's questions. Then taking what one learns out into

everyday life for meditation is but a waste of time if we do not take

action. Usingrepparttar 132409 ideas of there is an abundance in this universe takes away

the fear and allows us to see that we do not have to compete or compare

ourselves to anyone else. There is enough for everyone. You may dorepparttar 132410

same work as someone else but you will do it in your own unique way. We must be what we ask for. What does this mean inrepparttar 132411 workplace it

means if we want respect, recognition, appreciation we must give these

things to others. By being all that you ask for you will createrepparttar 132412

environment and relationships that you want in your work.

"The voyage of discovery lies not in finding new landscapes, but in

having new eyes." Marcel Proust Havingrepparttar 132413 proper perspective is an important part of working. As we

perceive a thing to be is how it will be. In other words what we expect

from our work we will receive.

If we are living spiritual values throughout our lives work will just

be another place where we find Joy.

so hasrepparttar snake charmer,repparttar 132404 camel wala orrepparttar 132405 photographer with his camera. Necessity has forced these people, who used to depend upon you for their livelihood to go elsewhere. The picnickers that used to throng at your side every evening and night are all gone now. They have abandoned you for some other dazzling joint, where city lights outlastrepparttar 132406 night andrepparttar 132407 party ever carries on. Did they ever care about you at all, I wonder. Yet there are a few faithful ones who still choose to come here: sparse joggers, some couples deeply engrossed in private conversations and in each others. And there are a few scavengers like me. The blanched moon beckons andrepparttar 132408 angry waves ebb and flow in their ancient rhythm. This ancient rhythm that has been here, sincerepparttar 132409 beginning of creation, even before man was here. To every pattern and to every beginning, there is an end. And mankind, is always trying to orchestraterepparttar 132410 end of his own beginning, trying to haste onrepparttar 132411 nemesis. Almost a century back, Matthew Arnold looked atrepparttar 132412 dark sea and contemplated uponrepparttar 132413 man's faith and his fate. How far have man progressed since then? So much intelligence and so much of advancement and yet there remains disdain, pompousness and a criminal neglect towardsrepparttar 132414 environment that sustains him. So many months have passed sincerepparttar 132415 oil spill tragedy has taken place,repparttar 132416 effects on which still linger on. The toxic wastage lies inrepparttar 132417 bottom ofrepparttar 132418 sea, hidden from our discerning eyes. It is still seeping inrepparttar 132419 unfathomable depths, poisoningrepparttar 132420 very core,repparttar 132421 roots and essence. Water being our integral constituent, this toxic wastage is poisoning our souls as well.

The Karachi beach, as we have known it never hadrepparttar 132422 crystalline clearness ofrepparttar 132423 Bahamas, of Florida, Miami or Hawaii, The polluted and trash strewn coastline stretch used to speak volumes about our civic sense, but it still was something better than having nothing. It used to offer usrepparttar 132424 luxury of watching infinity. The Sea is what defines our status as a coastal city. It is and would always be a prominent element of our landscape and geography. As for karachittees social life and cultural milieu,repparttar 132425 cooperate food chains, restaurants and food outlets would keep on opening, butrepparttar 132426 damage done torepparttar 132427 sea would linger on. These cramped spaces are meant for a blessed few and speak volumes about our empty souls and excess desires, over brimming indulgences and depraved values. In spite ofrepparttar 132428 hoodwinking claims made aboutrepparttar 132429 amount of damage being minimal, inrepparttar 132430 heart of our heart, we ought to know better that an irreparable damage has been done andrepparttar 132431 sea has been blemished. We ought to know now thatrepparttar 132432 price is to be paid, by us and by our future generations. Scared I am to bring my children into this world, and to think aboutrepparttar 132433 kind of future they will have.
