Imagine for a moment, what circumstances need to change to make your life feel as though it had a solid reason for you to play your part in it. Would you then begin to feel more connected and sure of the reason? Could the days spent in doing mundane and ordinary things then be reason enough to bring you joy?
Perhaps we could all do well to reconsider what motivates us and for what reason we live the lives we do. What stirs us to make that long journey to work and back in the weather that is not going to inspire us. To arrive at a job that has no real satisfaction and is maybe not even meeting our financial needs sufficiently enough to relieve us of the frustration at having to do it at all. To be hanging by a thread of doubt about its continued safety in a world governed by greed and profit chasing and people who have little conscience about others welfare and human rights. And then to be told that your work is hardly sufficient to deserve your pay, so you had better work harder and more diligently.
