Anti Wage-Slavery Pro-Freedom Quotations Of The Week 1002-1004

Understanding that not your work but your story is what enriches and nourishes the world may give you some different sense of identity. You are not what you work or what you do, you are, what you perceive and what you can marvel about. This not only nourishes you but the world as well. When you see that happy unemployment consists in the understanding that you and the world are undeserved, but loving, buddies, then you may even start to pick up a tool one day, a pen, something this or that. When you understand that your activity is not about you but the you inside all, then addiction has been replaced by gratitude and admiration. You may then even work, now and then. But not too much. Because the world needs less work, not more. And so do you.
