Reader comment on Zilong Wang's passage ...

The False Duality Between "Job" And "Service"

 As so many folks commented last night, a lot of it is in the intent and attitude, and compassion/kindness that we bring to our work, in whatever form. "Serve from where you are" and "Find the nooks and crannies in the world to plant seeds"--that visual will stay with me and is very powerful. I am close to someone who has spent a lifetime as a "karma yogi" and has impacted so many people with kindness, selflessness, integrity and generosity....whether mentoring, finding just the right job for someone, creating opportunities for others to grow and flourish, leading with values and never ever thinking about the "fruits" of the labors. So this example reminds me all the time that if you "go deep", always stay true to your values, and don't worry about the "fruits", service is the natural flow.....

 It is rightly stated that 'when you love what you do', it is no more a work you just do it.
At now 73 year age i worked hard on the water issue for the last two years. No results.
It may regrettable,but it never bored me. Because i loved it.
