I recently worked with a group who were concerned that they were not seeing immediate results from their efforts, which opened up a lively discussion on “rewards”, payback, investment of time and effort, and why we do what we do — as individuals, light-workers, entrepreneurs, parents, caregivers, and so on.
But here’s the thing for me: if we are vested only in the tangible rewards, and in seeing immediate results, perhaps we are being short-sighted and perhaps we are overlooking the spiritual rewards.
This does not mean we should not engage in work with no results at all – we definitely want to ensure that our efforts are appropriate, are reaching their target, and are building towards a desired outcome.
However, the work that we do, the values we live by, the support we give others…. These are an investment not just in “the now”, but in the future, as caretakers for the next generation and all that follow.
We are custodians of the future, and may not see the lasting positive outcome of the work we do. But that does not mean we shouldn’t continue to do it. Do something because it is the right thing to do.
Hang in there🌞
As Albert Schweitzer said:
No ray of sunshine is ever lost, but the green which it awakes into existence needs time to sprout, and it is not always granted to the sower to see the harvest. All work that is worth anything is done in faith.
