A post Laura shared from ‘Lessons Learned in Life Inc.’s, in April 2012. Laura was going through a tough time in Dubai…
Another post shared from Les Vaughan.
And from Kahlil Gibran she shared this. Quite interesting as yesterday as I was chatting to the maid I employ on a Thursday every two weeks, we were talking about cooking. I told her that I don’t enjoy cooking and I hoped that one day somebody would cook for me. Certainly I have lost interest in a lot of things since Laura’s death, and possibly since I’ve become a vegan I haven’t experimented with different recipes, just doing enough to survive. She told me that she really likes cooking. And cleaning. I said to her, “that is why you do it so well.”
“Work is love made visible.
And if you cannot work with love but only with distaste, it is better that you should leave your work and sit at the gate of the temple and take alms of those who work with joy.
For if you bake bread with indifference, you bake a bitter bread that feeds but half man’s hunger.
And if you grudge the crushing of the grapes, your grudge distils a poison in the wine.
And if you sing though as angels, and love not the singing, you muffle
man’s ears to the voices of the day and the voices of the night.”
