Do heart-work

Do heart-work

“Those who work much do not work hard,” wrote Henry David Thoreau in The Journal of Henry David Thoreau, 1837–1861 (Amazon).

Hard work pays off. Much of what we achieve in life is the result of persistence. That’s why everyone encourages each other never to give up. 

But on the flip side, work can also be a labor of love. There are jobs that we’d do for free. 

So as the days pass in working, working all the time, double-check to make sure that you’re heart is in the labor too. Heart work is a support system for your life.

The work of the eyes is done. Go now and do the heart-work on the images imprisoned within you

Rainer Maria Rilke
