Right Livelihood Quest

Right Livelihood Quest

Here, in our context, Right Livelihood means expressing your Life Purpose through your work and your life. It means knowing who you are and why you are here – in the biggest possible scope – and aligning your life to your vocation, purpose, and values.

It is about knowing what you cannot not do. And doing it, oftentimes despite all odds. There will be challenges along the way, together with moments and times of tremendous joy, fulfillment, and meaning. Such is the nature of a life lived when we become aware of our experiences along the path, learn to integrate the darkest and the brightest moments of our past and present, and focus our unique gifts towards the world outside of our personal scope. The paradox of one’s Right Livelihood is that, while it is very individual, it is absolutely not personal at the same time.

    • Doors. Closing and Opening.

      It has been a very long time since the last reflection. Over a year, I believe. I am sending this one on September 21, because it is a day of profound significance for me. Today, a year ago, on September 21, 2021, a conversation happened that drastically and utterly changed the trajectory of my life. […]

    • Having More Fun

      “Your homework is to have more fun. Play more.” This was given to me through an exploration of what I perceived as a certain imbalance in my life recently, spending a couple of days in a fairly solid and consistent state of “blah.” Life was kinda OK, kinda full, with plenty of work and growth […]
