Is it better to request what you’re accustomed to (I’m a housewife and love to bake and make a mean salad) or what I enjoy (I love to organize office supplies and garden)?
Nicole, it’s a great question.
I say to share what your skills are in the application form, but then do whatever job they give you with a positive attitude.
I was given a department that I didn’t want at first. It was the BEST thing that could have happened to me though, in terms of my growth. If I wasn’t open to that, I wouldn’t have had all the self-development that I got from it.
Trust what they give you! 🙂
Great lessons, Ambika. Thanks for sharing them so eloquently. Sending love to you and your husband and wishing you many blessing for this new stage in your life.
Thank you kumar tom! You were always such a calming presence to me. All the best 🙂
Thank you for sharing, Ambika. I remembered your early years’ struggles when we were neighbours at the Ashram. I wish you all the best in your “household” life. I continued to do karma yoga in various spiritual communities around the world. Om shanti. Love & light. Satyadev (AKA “Living Connections of the Heart” from Plum Village, “Wild Cosmic Heart” from Kalani retreat center.)
Thank you Satyadev! You were always an inspiration.
Om Ambika! Beatifully expressed. Had so much fun with during our time together and learned so much from you. Till our paths cross once more!!!
Thank you shanti 🙂 can’t wait til that day comes when our paths cross!
Very nice to read your writings. The ashram is a special place & happy that it is a part of my life. Each time gets better & better. In fact, many of my best friends I met at the ashram.
Thank you betsy!
As always, so well written eloquent and heartfelt…you were one of the most influential and guiding lights for me when I came to the Boutique and was adjusting to karma yoga at the ashram. So grateful we got to know each other and I gleaned some of your wisdom. This past season was profound for me and now that I’m home I’m still processing it. Timing for such an article as this was divinely perfect. Much love to you and Arjuna in your new life together. Love always.
Thank you Bea! You were such a positive force in my life at the ashram…both times! So much love to you…I can’t wait till our paths cross again 🙂
This is something I need to know.. Thank you for sharing .
I hope to keep learning. and I hope to share this imformation with my Yoga Teacher and class.
Thank you for your comment Jane! All the best to you and to your practice 🙏
Ambika, so beautifully written, I remember you from last year 2016, A good inside view of how to look at Karma yoga, you definitely made me see it a in a different light. I will be going to the Bahamas to do Karma Yoga and I feel much better prepared to go forward..
I’m so glad Anne! I hope you have a beautiful and meaningful experience this year in karma yoga. I know that for me, every year I went back it just got deeper and better 🙂
Absolutely amazing! Thank you for sharing your experience.
All the best always !
