This book is for you if you are dedicated to the pursuit of
your personal goals; if you are concerned about your spiritual
growth and how your work can help that growth; or even if
you are seeking a deeper understanding of evolution itself. If
you already know your life’s work but are having problems
fulfilling it, there are practical planning and visualization
methods to help you work through the difficulties. If you are
already working in your chosen field and are experiencing obstacles in achieving success, this book will provide a better
understanding of the causes of the obstructions. It will also
help you bring goals into focus in your daily life and establish
the sound practices that can bring success.
Such success is achieved through working with the transpersonal or higher Self.' This Self is the part of the individual
that is connected to and in contact with the higher forces of
nature. It contains the wisdom of humanity. Within It is the
source of the higher knowledge that relates to the cosmic
realms. The higher Self is within each and every person, but
few are aware of this part of themselves. "This Self is above,
and unaffected by, the flow of the mind-stream or by bodily
conditions; and the personal conscious self should be considered merely as its reflection, its ‘projection’ in the field of the
To grow spiritually a person must awaken this part and
bring it into his or her consciousness on a regular basis. The
Self perceives evolutionary patterns and understands what
each individual needs to accomplish to help spiritual growth.
To know the Self is to begin to know your own spirit.
This book works with the higher Self by suggesting exercises
that will help you awaken and contact it. Through regularly
working with the higher Self there will come a deeper awareness of who you are, as well as a better understanding of
those around you. The higher Self is you, and all your accomplishments are contained within it.
The higher Self represents a personification of wisdom
and is often seen by the individual as an archetypal Wise Being. This figure is generally masculine to both men and
women, though it can also appear as feminine. Seeing It personified helps the individual relate to the Self more closely. It
is also possible to not see a Being, per se, but to instead see a
symbol, or light, or feel energy. In all cases the ultimate goal
is to integrate the higher Self into the consciousness so you
are working with It at all times.
Throughout this book, the words vocation and life’s
work signify broader meanings than their normal usage. In
several ways these words connote what in the East is called
dharma. Dharma has a variety of interpretations in Buddhism and Hinduism. It represents the way we live our lives
spiritually and ethically, as well as the way in which we develop on our evolutionary paths.
One of the many meanings of dharma refers to the work
a person chooses to do in a given lifetime. This work relates
to the individual’s evolving soul, which incarnates lifetime
after lifetime and carries with it, in each subsequent life, all
the experiences it has gone through in previous lives—both
negative and positive.
The work one selects is very important, as it always helps
the soul go onward to another level of maturity. Everyone has
to live lifetimes in such fields as the arts, sciences, philosophies, etc., to achieve the experience needed for spiritual balance. For example, if you have lived many lives in the arts,
developing right-brain attributes, such as intuition and imagination, then you would need to have a few lives in the arena
of the logical, left-brain sciences to bring balance.
The purpose of the evolutionary path is for the soul (or
individuality) to achieve synthesis with the higher energies
and bring itself to the place of total assimilation into the
highest world.’ The soul then will no longer need to return to
Earth, but can continue its evolution in a higher realm.
In the ancient teachings, dharma denotes the entire evolutionary path, including the performance and accomplishment of work. It also signifies religion, natural law, universal
order, truth, knowledge, morality and duty. I refer to a Hindu
definition in which dharma signifies duties and obligations.
In the Bhagavadgité much emphasis is placed on the need to
follow or fulfill one’s dharma (social duty or role). "The universe is sustained dharma. Ideally each person works out his
social career according to the dictates of his own nature
(svadharma) as this is itself a product of past experience.
Dharma, karma ("action" or "work"), and samsara ("re-
birth") belong together: action carried over innumerable lives
must be informed by a sensitivity to the obligations one has in
virtue of one’s interdependence with others."
