An important key is the simple endeavor to link our hearts with our labor. Daily meditation toward the Common Good - even short meditation if regular - is one important way to begin to forge this vital link between our daily labor, our heart and the Universal Heart. This gradually changes life intention toward establishing the Common Good which benefits all humanity and the Earth. Here are two simple meditation practices that may be of assistance. Any meditation that seeks to link one's thinking with the Universal Heart is adequate, however.
"..We often mention the value of labor. Labor begets rhythm. Through labor one experiences supermundane vibrations; that is why quality of labor is so important. In this way every good worker refines his vibrations and can begin the ascent.
"One should not think of certain fields of labor as special, for in each labor high tensions can be attained. Labor must be rhythmic and therefore daily. There is no need to await some special inspiration to begin labor. The prayer of labor can begin at any time, and through it man attains a new perfectment.
"Let us not reject manual labor, for in the application of ones hands is found true mastery. Who can dare to draw a boundary between craftsmanship and creative artistry? Truly, the conscious worker is also a creator in his domain. Luckily, each domain can be perfected; in this, man, without even thinking about it, makes contact with the highest vibrations and the Supermundane World. Each moment of such communion can bring a useful discovery, and can be strengthened by benevolent cooperation.
"Perfectment of labor is the next task. Not in the distant future, but in the coming years will labor be victorious; along with it will approach the beneficent vibrations of the New Era. Let us not forget that on the eve of the Era of Light one should learn to revere labor.
"The Thinker said, 'One may respect labor, but one should also understand its lofty purpose.'" Supermundane IV para. 758
