"Zen teaches nothing; it merely enables us to wake up and become aware. It does not teach, it points." ~D.T. Suzuki

It's A Living

It's A Living

Work, Work, Work
Your work is to discover your world and then with all your heart give yourself to it.
Siddharta Gautama 
What If Money Were No Object - Alan Watts

The pitcher cries for water to carry and a person for work that is real.
Marge Piercy
Work= Force X Distance

Another way of putting it is:
Exertion or effort directed to produce
or accomplish something.

It is not enough to be busy, so are the ants. The question is: what are we busy about?
Henry David Thoreau

Work is love made visible. 
And if you cannot work with love
but only with distaste, it is better
that you should leave your work
and sit at the gate of the temple
and take alms of those who work with joy.
Khalil Gibran
When you do things from your soul 
you feel a river moving in you, a joy.

We must learn to reawaken
and keep ourselves awake,
not by mechanical aids,
but by an infinite expectation of the dawn, 
which does not forsake us
 in our soundest sleep.
I know of no more encouraging fact
than the unquestionable ability of man
to elevate his life by a conscious endeavor.
It is something to be able to paint
a particular picture, or to carve a statue,
and so to make a few objects beautiful;
but it is far more glorious to carve
and paint the very atmosphere
and medium through which we look,
which morally we can do.
To affect the quality of the day,
that is the highest of arts.
Every man is tasked to make his life,
even in its details,
worthy of the contemplation
of his most elevated and critical hour.
Henry David Thoreau
Happiness With Money & Work ~ Alan Watts
