One of the key tenets of Buddhism is that you do a job that is ethical. The funny thing is, what drew me to Buddhism is that it just seems to make sense to me. Moreover, I look back at my life, and I see it’s truth as it happened. I was happy, and well; thriving, when I volunteered for the FoodBank. I got very ill when I worked as a soulless marketer. I think about all the skills I’ve learned and will learn doing blogging, and I know I could apply it to something soulless and lucrative… but I don’t want to. Where would I get the motivation from?
Building this idea is exciting and motivating. It means so much to see I’ve helped someone. I don’t know if this is spirituality or ethics or just plain sense, but I do this because I love it and I love the people I help.
