Work Is Worship

April 17th - Work Day: Put shingles on the roof
One of the teachings from Beautiful Painted Arrow is that “Work is worship.”
Working in a mindful way with those in our community is one way we can truly “Walk in Beauty.” When we say ‘walk in beauty’ we are really saying ‘Walk in Love. It is the Blessing Way.’ To walk in beauty is to celebrate the principal ideas that create our bodies.
Beauty is the action of being in the moment. It is the connection that we have with the people that we love, our fellow human beings. ...Beauty comes from our relationship to all those around us. There are three essential parts or levels to being in a state of Beauty.
- Have a connection with Oneness;
- Be in reflection;
- And to be in movement.
Mindful work is all of these things, and is a way to worship.
Participation is a sign of the vitality of the Center and how important it is in the lives of the People. We are a non-profit organization that depends on the generosity of the People who receive their spiritual food here to support our operations for the year.
“Work is Worship“
Work/activity is one very clear way to celebrate ourselves as part of the community by which we are being fed spiritually. And it is always a lot of fun. Time seems to alter into a process rather than a taskmaster and friendships are born and nurtured by our community participation.
- Appropriate clothing
- AND an open willing attitude.
If you have any special skills, please let us know so we can best use your talents. Of course, we will first take care of the pressing needs, but there is a lot of work to be done and all your talents are valuable.
It is a great feeling to give something back for what you’ve received, and in that way, experience the meaning of the teaching, “Work is Worship.”
If you, too, would like to support the Center and give something back for what you have received, join us on our ‘Work Is Worship’ days. Workdays are always filled with fun, fellowship, and laughter (and lunch)! Check our calendar for the latest dates.
