I agree, what excites us doesn't have to be a paying job. I think this is where many trip themselves up with this concept. But
being true to ourselves in following our excitement/bliss, puts us on a different vibe and frequency, and the more we do it, the more
we are in that state. Bashar's said it over and over: whatever excites you the most in that moment is what you ought to do. With no expectation,
just for the experience of it!
To him it is a no-brainer. He will ask people if they are following their highest excitement and often they will hedge. "Not...really...I don't know what my highest excitement is..."
I think it is a lot easier when we are kids to know and act on our excitement. It is just our natural state. And then...
Ah, get born, keep warm
Short pants, romance, learn to dance
Get dressed, get blessed
Try to be a success
Please her, please him, buy gifts
Don't steal, don't lift
Twenty years of schoolin'
And they put you on the day shift
Look out kid
They keep it all hid
Better jump down a manhole
Light yourself a candle
Don't wear sandals
Try to avoid the scandals
Don't wanna be a bum
You better chew gum
The pump don't work
'Cause the vandals took the handles.
- Dylan, Subterranean Homesick Blues
We get well and truly brainwashed by what Seth calls "the official line of consciousness" of our world which of course includes the idea that
we have to work for a living.
The Starseed Transmissions by Ken Carey, describes the process of materialization as we explored physicality. Bolding mine:

As you began to focus more and more upon your identity in form, you began thinking in terms of defending that form with unnecessary and cumbersome ego structures. It became harder for you to avoid identifying with your experience. You began to carry over past patterns of behavioral response into new relationships. This made you less effective in those relationships because you were no longer fully present, no longer using the fullness of your potential. You were beginning to build up around yourself energized thought structures that imprisoned you. You were drawn by simple gravitational attraction, to those realms of space where energy was in the process of being bonded, where matter was being created. Particles of physical substance began to gather along the magnetic lines of your thought structures, and you began to identify with denser and denser levels of physical expression.
This process went on for a long while before you actually found yourself in any kind of physical Garden. When you did, you had already fallen a long way from your original state of grace, but you were still functioning on a level of awareness far enough above and beyond your present condition to give rise to all the myths and legends of a physical paradise. The physical Garden of Eden lasted for many centuries of Earth time before the momentum of the materializing processes caused you to rely so much upon the physical senses that you became cut off from the direct nourishment of divine light.
In reality, you have never been cut off from this nourishment, but as your sense of identity became almost exclusively wedded to your physical bodies, their growing density began demanding more and more Earth substance for their support. You finally reached a point where you could no longer meet the demands of your physical bodies without "work". It is at this point that your chronicles state that you were "driven from the Garden." In truth, you were never driven from the Garden. The Garden is still there, surrounding you even now.
But yeah, ViaGateway, we do have to respect where we are at, and refrain from jumping off the cliff. We can still follow our excitement even while
we give ourselves time to get to where we can fly!
