Here’s a question for you … do you think the bee wakes up, says to himself ‘oh, crap another ten hours of flying around collecting pollen?’ I doubt it very much. The bee doesn’t make the distinction between ‘working’ and ‘living’ that most people do … for the bee, it’s all just ‘living’.
Think about that …
For anyone who has lived in or travelled to Asia, you may have noticed that many of the people there (working in markets, cooking food, etc) are smiling, chatting, solving each other’s problems, etc – all as they ‘earn’ their living. I think many of these people don’t see the distinction between ‘working’ and ‘living’ that many western people see. There’s a secret to be unearthed in this; a big lesson to be learned.
If you love what you do or you can learn to ‘live’ fully while you are doing whatever it is you are doing – it may be possible to never ‘work’ a day in your life. In blurring the lines between what we call ‘work’ and what we call ‘life’ – we can enrich our lives dramatically. JBW
