Moving closer to God is a journey of self interest.
The things of the world can be enjoyed, but they don't bring you true joy. What makes you joyful is to spread God's Love and His/Her joy to others, to put a smile on someone's face, to make them laugh, to help them know how much He/She loves them.
We make things so complicated, but we are simply here to love and be Love, to be an expression of our Creator who is Love. As we open to our true Self and become a vessel through which He/She expresses, we become that which we already are. We don't have to do anything to be who we are other than release what is false which makes us think we are something else :)
Everything in life --- our relationships, our job, our experiences --- they only serve as vehicles to help us remember that we are Love. They have no other purpose.We are not here to achieve: we are here to be an expression of Love.
How do you know if you are doing God's work? Does expressing Love give you joy? By following through on what gives you true joy, you are doing His work. It is in your interest, God's interest, the interest of everyone else --- for we are One and what we do to another is done to ourself and vice versa --- to be Love!
