There is a far more meaningful alternative
to our increasingly desperate attempts to fill the hole within our hearts.

If we use work to challenge our limits,
to perfect awareness and deepen concentration,
then work can open into knowledge
that makes us more successful
while also nourishing us at the deepest levels.

By letting work guide us toward deeper knowledge,
we can end each day with a sense of enjoyment
and a feeling that we have accomplished something of real benefit.

We can achieve our own goals
and set an example that has the potential to transform society.
