Day 115:  Shifting from Obligation to Embracement: Wisdom for Finding Fulfillment in Daily Life – Message from Master Oneness

It’s vital to avoid doing things solely out of a sense of obligation since it can result in feeling manipulated or constrained by external factors

Instead, you should strive to do things with a sense of inner purpose and alignment with your values, allowing you to act from a place of authenticity and inner guidance. This can lead to a greater sense of freedom, fulfillment, and connection to a higher power. For example, as a student, you may have initially resisted creating a schedule for studying, but eventually agreed to one that your parents helped you create. However, if you only follow the schedule out of a sense of obligation, you may feel stressed and overwhelmed. It’s important to embrace the responsibilities and commitments you have, rather than simply fulfilling them as a duty.

Similarly, when you get married and have children, you may initially enjoy the new responsibilities, but they can start to feel like obligations if you don’t fully embrace them. For instance, after getting married, you may have to start informing your spouse of your whereabouts and your plans for the day. Once you have children, you’ll have to take on extra responsibilities, such as taking them to school and ensuring their needs are met. These can be joyous experiences if you approach them with enthusiasm and commitment, rather than treating them as mere obligations.

Finally, when hosting someone from out of town, it’s important to avoid simply going through the motions out of a sense of obligation. For example, if your parents ask you to host a relative who needs to go to the hospital, it’s easy to fall into the trap of doing it out of obligation. However, if you embrace the art of hospitality and genuinely enjoy the experience of hosting someone, it can become a fulfilling and enriching experience for both you and your guest.

Here are some examples of tasks that people often view as obligations in spiritual practice:

  1. Daily prayer or meditation: While these practices can bring peace and spiritual growth, they can also feel like a chore or obligation when done out of a sense of duty rather than a desire to connect with a higher power.
  2. Attending religious services: Many people feel obligated to attend religious services, even if they don’t necessarily feel a strong connection or desire to be there.
  3. Participating in community service: While community service can be a fulfilling and meaningful way to give back, it can also feel like an obligation if done solely out of a sense of duty rather than a desire to help others.
  4. Fasting or abstaining from certain foods or activities: These practices can be a way to purify the body and focus on spiritual growth, but they can also feel like obligations or burdensome restrictions. For example, eating vegetarian food or fasting. 
  5. Reading spiritual texts or attending study groups: While these practices can deepen one’s understanding of spiritual principles, they can also feel like obligations or intellectual exercises if done solely out of a sense of duty or obligation.

Here are some potential obstacles to shifting from obligation to embracement, and some strategies for addressing them:

  1. Fear of failure: When faced with a new responsibility or task, it’s natural to worry about not being able to do it well. This fear can make it difficult to approach the task with enthusiasm and commitment. To overcome this obstacle, it can be helpful to reframe failure as a learning opportunity rather than a personal flaw. Set realistic expectations for yourself and celebrate small wins along the way. Remember that no one is perfect and that making mistakes is a natural part of growth and learning.
  2. Old habits: It can be challenging to break old habits and thought patterns that keep us stuck in a mindset of obligation. To overcome this obstacle, try replacing negative self-talk with positive affirmations. Practice mindfulness to become more aware of when you’re falling into old patterns, and then consciously choose to approach the task with a new perspective. It can also be helpful to enlist the support of a friend, coach, or therapist who can hold you accountable and provide encouragement.
  3. Lack of motivation: It can be difficult to approach tasks with enthusiasm and commitment when we’re feeling unmotivated. To overcome this obstacle, try to tap into your “why” – why is this task important to you? What values does it align with? Break the task down into smaller, manageable steps and set achievable goals. Celebrate small wins along the way to keep yourself motivated.
  4. Overcommitment: It’s easy to fall into the trap of overcommitting ourselves, which can lead to feeling overwhelmed and resentful. To overcome this obstacle, practice setting healthy boundaries and saying “no” when necessary. Prioritize tasks based on their importance and urgency, and delegate responsibilities where possible. Remember that it’s okay to take breaks and ask for help when needed.

By acknowledging and addressing common obstacles, you can better equip yourself to shift from obligation to embracement and find greater fulfillment in your daily life.

The key to finding happiness in any situation is to approach it with total involvement of your body, mind, emotions, intellect, and spirit. This means fully engaging with the task at hand, regardless of whether it’s boring or interesting. By doing so, you’ll be able to find joy and fulfillment in your daily life, rather than simply going through the motions out of a sense of obligation.

Shifting from a sense of obligation to embracement requires a shift in mindset and perspective. Here are some strategies that may help:

  1. Find meaning: Identify the deeper meaning and purpose behind the task or responsibility. For example, taking care of a sick loved one can be reframed as an opportunity to show love and support.
  2. Reframe the task: Look for ways to reframe the task in a more positive light. Instead of thinking of it as a burden, try to focus on the benefits and positive outcomes that may result.
  3. Set goals: Set specific, meaningful goals for the task or responsibility. This can help give a sense of direction and purpose and provide motivation to see it through.
    to set a meaningful goal, follow these steps:
  • Make the goal specific and measurable.
  • Connect the goal to a deeper purpose or value that you hold.
  • Set a deadline for achieving the goal.
  • Break the goal down into smaller, manageable steps.
  1. Focus on the present: Avoid dwelling on past experiences or future worries. Instead, focus on being present in the moment and finding joy in the experience.
  2. Practice gratitude: Express gratitude for the opportunity to take on the responsibility or task, and appreciate the positive aspects of the experience.

Strategies that can help you shift from obligation to embracement include finding meaning, reframing the task in a more positive light, and setting specific goals. It’s important to embrace responsibilities and commitments, rather than simply fulfilling them as a duty.
