How people describe spirit at work
It was total bliss, as if everything was perfect, which it was. . . . I was feeling as if I was "in the moment" not being hurried by tasks, deadlines or activities, but by a connection with a greater source that had a wonderful effect on the workplace at that moment. It was genuine, authentic, and everything seemed to make sense.
"I was "in a flow state" so that I felt pulled along in something that I had only partial control over . . . like riding the rapids of a fast-flowing stream."
"There's a real sense of joy about it, a real sense of excitement, and a sense of gratitude to be part of something that's so important."
"Recognition of each employee and his or her contribution promoted a sense of purpose, meaning, and mission. I felt my work was contributing to an enterprise much larger than all of us."
"It became pretty apparent that we all needed to work together to achieve the goals we all shared in general, so we developed a sense of community and common purpose that was inspiring, I think, for all of us."
"I immediately discovered Spirit - a true relationship with the Divine ... not the religious ideal but the personal experience of being connected with some force that we might call God or Goddess or Nature or All That Is."
"The experiences were just extraordinary, like peak experiences. . . . It feels like it wasn't a job; it wasn't work. I was doing something really important, and as a bonus, I was getting paid for it."
