Work - a beautiful four letter word

Work gives immense joy if done as a pleasure but not as a burden.

Work is a pleasure

Work, a beautiful four letter word which can bring immense joy if done with the right spirit. However, until few years ago, it was this very word that disturbed me very much. I ended up changing too many portfolios as frequently as possible, in a Public Sector where I have been working. It was finally realized by me after reading ‘Karma Yoga’ that if there was something which needed to be changed – it would be ME!

My work until then was only attached to its results. My ambition was to have my own palatial house, my own car and be happy. Naturally, at the end of every month I would wait for that fat pay which would be my ticket to happiness. But alas, the pay would come but never the happiness.

For some reason which I never knew then but know now, the very happiness escaped me constantly. Today, I work in the same organization but my incentive to keep going on is the happiness which is tenfold than what it used to be before. Why? The reason is simple. I am no longer attached to the fruits (money) of my action (work). I work for the sake of work and enjoy unlike in the earlier situation.

There can be nothing more fulfilling than work. It is our Dharma or duty to excel with whatever we are supposed to do. If one looks at work with this attitude, one will never find the work boring or a burden. It is a promise, the fruits will come to you without asking for them.

Ah - waltzing with the word. Wonderful. If I don't review much of your work for the time being - it's becaus of my novel writing month. But I always try to take a look in any break I manage to wangle!
