Right Livelihood

How much of your job do you have to love? How much of your job is it okay to loathe? Do you have to believe in what you do, or is it okay to just have a job that is a job?

I love about 75% of my job. I think it’s OK to loathe about 1/4 of my job. I totally believe in what I do and think I would be miserable if I didn’t. Sometimes in my life, when it seemed that it was all just a little too tough, I imagined having a routine job that required little of me emotionally or spiritually, allowing me to come home in the evening and have a beer and not think about what I did that day or would do the next. But that all passed pretty quickly. Every time.
