Office Desiderata

Written on an index card when asked to write, in 30 seconds, why we continued to come to work:


Part of the wheel of liberation is "right livelihood." Right livelihood means earning a living by helping others. This means little things: pulling chairs, pushing papers, sharpening pencils, giving directions. This means big things: breaking delusion and despair, dispelling a lie or some oppression, giving all suffering people courage and joy.

Very nice, Alg! I followed the links and was impressed with the work link.

Great organization, HB!

"And what is wrong livelihood? Scheming, persuading, hinting, belittling, & pursuing gain with gain.".....

I'm sorry, I thought that was the definition for the GW Bush administration. My mistake.
