When you work you are a flute through whose heart
the whispering of the hours turns to music. To love
life through labor is to be intimate with life’s inmost secret.
All work is empty save when there is love, for work is
love made visible.
Love what you do? How blessed you are. To love the work you do you are a light that ripples out to the world, the energy you hold can be felt by your passion.I was having dinner at a friend’s house and he and I were chating about his work, it lights him up, the only problem in his mind is that the money isn’t great.
Unfortunately our society attaches success to money, never really asking are you happy and excited to get our of bed in the morning? Are you affecting people in positive ways because of your calling?
Following your passion affects more than just you. Have you ever been around someone who consistently complains about their work, or is so stressed out they can’t even enjoy their time with friends or family? This is not living. Living is doing what you love.
We are given this one life time, don’t get caught up in the illusion of what looks right in society. Time is precious, and if we are still breathing then it is never to late.
