    Buddha-Basics (Part VIII) — Working Right

    The fifth branch of the ‘Eightfold Path’ is “Right Livelihood.” Right Livelihood means that, as a life choice, one should earn a living in ways not harmful, and helpful and healthful to the world.

    Nurse, social worker, and teacher seem obvious choices. In our interconnected economy, so too do bus driver, honest salesman, cheerful office worker, waitress supporting her kids, the engineer or businessman providing goods or services which benefit lives.

    Certainly, burgler, heroin pusher, hitman and environmental polluter fall outside the mark.
    And for all of us in careers of complexity — the lawyer, soldier, butcher (traditionally, said banned by Buddha), nuclear scientist — we must honestly follow our hearts: Are we doing what is really necessary? Are we doing it in the best ways we can? Are we leaving this world a better place?

    The workplace (like the home, like every place) is our place of Practice …

    Thank you Jundo.

    I have focused a lot of my practice on my work over the past year. What a wonderful experience it has been too. Dealing with so many personalities, as well as an ever changing workload has been a wonderful chance to bring my Zazen 'to life' so to speak. Forming the routine of practice was a bit of a challenge, but once getting in the groove of it.. I see everything in a new and often calming way. My job performance has improved, along with my attitude and relationships with coworkers. Most days I don't see it as a job anymore.. It is simply seen as more practice. As a result I have been able to advance in the workplace at a much better rate.
    Nothing is so sweet as the ability to practice though. Truly priceless.

    Thank you Jundo,

    I am grateful that I work in a factory that has gone green in recent years. My company also donates our products to public places. We donated some of our lighting fixtures to a local park and have a nice little certificate on the wall for it. As for my own conduct I try to be as open and caring as I can during the workday, it can be hard because some people are very demanding. When I find myself getting agitated I remember that when someone is in need in the business, so am I. The company and it's people are one, without everyone there is no company.
