Think of all the most important "loving jobs" in our society: caring for aging people, nurturing children for parents when both need to work, working with the handicapped--these things do not pay well, but are all about daily showing love to those who need love. Little children bond to a day care worker, who leaves for another job; the elderly become accustomed to a caregiver who leaves. Somehow I think I've known that our daily work, rightfully and lovingly done, has a transcendent quality; that being a person of peace, fairness, and cheer when daily work is a grind helps us all. Wouldn't it be incredible if the $70 million/year CEO's chose to use their financial wealth to alleviate suffering? Then, that work could be a good thing.
But it is always safer to focus on what I can do in the workplace. Thank you for the confirmation/affirmation this posting gives. My work pays little, but I believe it has value. Even little things done with love must surely survive that death journey, in light of what you say.
