Alfred Sergel IV


on work

It's my third day into Lent and David Whyte has, once again, wrecked me.

His word choice and honesty cut through layers of myself I didn't know existed.

Below is a the phrase that I read this morning and could not read anymore...

"Distance and dissatisfaction in our work is only the inverse measure and mirrored representation of the ancient and heartfelt human need to be needed, to be seen, to give something to another, to come alive through our contribution to the visible world, through finding something interesting in our work, something a little more rewarding, a little more satisfying, and perhaps even intriguing and mysterious, and something especially, we want to make somehow completely our own, whether we work for ourself or for another." (David Whyte)
