In one of the workshops I do, I give people a blank calendar and ask them to fill in their typical week. As we begin to analyze their daily activities, I have them write down the letter O next to any action taken on behalf of another. You might want to try this yourself. Each O represents a spiritual act. Anytime we do something in which another person benefits, we are doing God's will, becoming an agent of the divine purpose. Every time we work to make the world a better place in which to live, we are being truly "religious" people. My sense is that there are many religious people in this world that do not go by that label. No matter. Perhaps in some ways it is even better that they do not. They are God's silent partners completing the work of creation each and every day.
