Is There Work For Me?

When I see other polytheists talk about their Work, I can’t help but feel a bit self-conscious, because right now, I’m spiritually unemployed.

I feel like my path should have some unifying purpose down in there somewhere, but right now I can’t find it. I’m not sure I even want to look for it, really. I just want to get through the next week of classes without missing any assignments, and Saraswati helps with that. It’s how we met.

Saraswati has never demanded much of me. She has not asked for pledges of loyalty or fidelity (though I have given them). She has really only wanted me to stay curious and keep learning. So you know, perhaps I’m not unemployed after all; perhaps I’m simply a spiritual student. 😉

  1. I find “the Work” meme really annoying. No one frickin’ defines it and it seems it mostly gets used as a way to shame people into doing or not doing whatever that person thinks should be the highest priority. I think there are things that Brighid and others want me to do, but it’s more a nudge and subtle impression than an Incoming Message From the Big Giant Head. So don’t worry what other people are doing and what they call it, just keep doing what you are doing.

    1. OMGs, thank you so much for saying this! I do agree that there’s a lot of that in certain circles, though I don’t think it’s as common as it seems sometimes. It’s that old problem that the most extreme voices are the loudest ones in the room….

  2. I don’t know about anyone else, but I use work in place of whatever spells I’m doing. I’d rather not tell people exactly what I’m working on.

  3. I’m the same. I have materialistic concerns to take care of (getting a job in my dream field) and my spiritual activity is mostly doing charity on the side in causes that my goddess cares about, and working on myself. I think that’s enough. 🙂

    By the way, please let me know if you ever open up shop and offer god phone services because I’d definitely be a customer!
