res·o·nance - noun
"Electricity- that condition of a circuit with respect to a given frequency or the like in which the net reactance is zero and the current flow a maximum." This definition of resonance as electricity is a great scientific way of the truth - we are all energy. What frequency do you choose to resonate at?

God in the office

Interesting piece is USA Today - worth a read. They are claiming that acceptance of spirituality in the workplace is on the rise. Here's an except: "According to the workplace spirituality movement, creativity at work is a spiritual process that involves the whole person and not just the intellect or manual skill, and the new class of knowledge workers is devoting more of their time to work because they find deep meaning and a sense of purpose on the job." The bigger question to me is how many employees find that "sense of purpose" on the job - that then they are willing to give more of their time to work? I bet if we did a survey of this issue it would at best be a split - likely a low percent. Further, how many people take the time to know their true purpose, true calling in this life? And is it self-serving or serving a higher power, or at least a broader good? Ultimately - resonance comes from serving the one universal source that we all come from and go back to. How many people resonate at that level of consciousness and through that high frequency then impact positive change in the office-space? Please do comment on your perspectives.

  1. Thanks for this post -- because of it, I read the USA Today article I had missed.

    Here's the essence of the spirituality and work movement as I see it: bringing integrity, purpose and joy into work. Just start with integrity, and that means not just honest and ethical, but also true to self and on the level with others -- doing my best at work for the benefit of myself and for others.

    The paragraph you quoted seems such a distortion. See our online resources from the Spirit and Work Resource Center, spiritandworkresourcecenter.com, for many resources from many faiths (including the viewpoints of many who are not religious).

    Thanks again and best wishes! Pat McHenry Sullivan, author of Work with Meaning, Work with Joy.
