The ignorant work for their own profit, Arjuna; the wise work for the welfare of the world, without thought for themselves. – Krishna – Gita
working for others
Only unselfish work that’s targeted for the benefit of others is truly satisfying. All work we do for self is ultimately meaningless because it has a very narrow purview. Divinely inspired outcomes and work is what we should aim for, we wither away, become anxious and depressed when we don’t do that.
