A Journey to Élan Vital

As the economy crisis escalates, there seems to be more pain for the female employees. Companies’ restructuring is a severe problem for the weaker positions. Female employees are probably targeted more than the male employees.  In my personal opinion, I think female workers are more hard working. There may be one male who would do exceptionally well. But if you compare 10 males to 10 female workers, I think the female workers will score higher results. If I own a company, I would definitely hire more women and men only who are already receiving annuity, sincere and humble. In that way, many problems will be solved in expenditures, sexual harassment, retirement benefits, etc., and it would be an ideal long lasting company. Though, it may depend on the type of occupation, I am sure it will be a contribution to the society. From now on, for large corporations, every year is going to become a challenge. Don’t assume you can stay in one company for ten, twenty years.

If you are a housewife, it could be even tougher. You have your precious children. If the money gets tight and your husband is uncooperative, there is more pressure on the wife to figure things out all by herself. This will become a serious Gurdjieff work.

If you could get through this tough time, you will have a kannon (kuan yin) face later in your life. The safety and life for your children should come first. Your husband should be on the last of your list. If your husband is violent at home, you should start thinking of a place to move, start saving money and think about a way to live on your own.

Although I must say in the 50’s or 60’s, home life was much different. It was tougher than what it is today. For example, I’ve mentioned about the well known actor Takeshi Beat’s life before. His mother used to physically fight with her husband when he didn’t have enough money to bring home. But she really did a good job raising the children. All the children feel proud to be raised well even they were very poor. They said that they really didn’t need a father because their mother did all the work. But the couple stayed together until the end. I would think that they shared their tears that nobody else could understand.

Even when your family is having a very difficult time, if your heart is stable there is nothing to worry about. You might trip over few times but time will pass and those days will turn into a good memory.

If you want to have a stable heart, you have to make sure you don’t have any spiritual magnets of others. Don't forget to send your gratitude to your ancestral spirits for protection and keep your focus to be real in the hardship. Don't try to run away from it.

As long as you keep your own magnetic field without other spirit’s interference, you will eventually see the light. Life comes with hardships. It is impossible to run away from it. It’s important to keep smiling and blow away the problem in your mind.

If you can laugh out your problems, you will end up with a successful spiritual journey.
