I love the story of the two stonemasons. When it comes to choosing and doing a job, my fundamental question is teleological: How the work
I choose to do fulfills the purpose of my life? Do I love to do this work? Does this work fill the cup of my life with joy and happiness? Does this work serve a higher pupose besides paying my bills? Is this work a part of something bigger than the job I am doing? Is my work a labor of love and selfless service?
After I graduated from a college I chose to teach not only for bread butter but my teaching brings a lot of joy and fulfillment in my life. My father's advice was very simple but very profound: Follow your heart. Love what you do. With this attitude work becomes worship. I have been following his adivce and it has brought deep satisfaction and joy.
Listening to my inner voice and following it has created golden light of deep fulfillment, happiness and joy in my life.
May we all find the purpose of living and live our life fully!
