AM I ACCRUING BAD KARMA AT MY JOB?

DEAR DALI MAMA:

I work a corporate job in New York as an executive assistant. My boss lies all the time and also asks me to lie to people as well—to her husband, her kids, and the clients. Little lies and big lies. Where she is, and more. The pay is really good but I feel like maybe I am accruing bad karma by being here and I am not comfortable. What should I do?

DEAR PAYING:

I suspect you already know the answer to this question. If you are not comfortable working for this woman and having to lie as part of your job, it is time to look for another job.

More than the issue of “bad karma,” this situation is probably showing you where your life is not resonating with your spirit or your values, so this is perhaps a karmic gift or teaching to help you learn to craft a life that does resonate with your values and your spirit.

Validate your ability to make a living through your skills and integrity and you can give notice once you find your new position. I applaud your courage and that you listen to your heart and your conscience.

HOW DO I LEAVE A JOB?

DEAR DALI MAMA:

I’ve had this same job for 18 years but now I feel so unmotivated. They pay is good and the people are nice but sometimes I just want to scream. I don’t know what else I’d do if I left though, or how I would pay the bills. Do you have any suggestions?

DEAR AM I:

A very wise man and teacher, Michael Tamura, once told me that motivation doesn’t disappear. It just goes somewhere else.

Follow your motivation to wherever it has gone. What excites you? What would you love to do? Then start doing it, even as a hobby and see where it leads. You don’t have to quit your job for now. Just start exploring and follow your heart. It may lead you to some miracles.

Have fun cultivating your passion.
