When we learn to honor the ebb and flow, the natural rhythm of our lives, the “work” that we do can be easier and maybe even more effective by learning when to stop and rest in the richness of our lives outside of what we do to make money.

A Blessing for Those Who Work
There are ways that enslavement happens.
Work, no matter how much joy may be present, needs to end.

Soon his children stopped asking him to play because his hands were full of tools.
His wife became more lonely day by day, because the tools were in the way.
