It completes a responsibility in the world and in return, it completes us.
There is good work within each of us. How it corresponds to our outward endeavors is an enigma. But somehow, the outward and inward work conform. As J.P. Evans said, “A man who leads an ethical life adds goodness to humanity.”
Maintaining a balance in our daily lives and the work we pursue is often a struggle. For those who strive to accomplish great things, to make positive changes in the world, the balance may be out of kilter. Perhaps a pathway may be to think of what one holds in reverence, what one loves. Even small good things can draw light into one’s life. However, if that striving is for money, the individual who esteems greed is rarely able to love another or have any spiritual depth.
May your Thanksgiving and all your days be filled with “good work.”
