^ Smart work is better than just hard work, but wise work is the best.
^ Money is not evil in itself, it is greed for money that turns it evil, and it is working only for money that turns it into stress.
^ There is a Zen aphorism : Before enlightenment, break stones and fetch water. After enlightenment, break stones and fetch water. So what does enlightenment change ? The perception, the attitude. And that changes the work from drudgery to excellence, to joy, to worship.
^ When you can enjoy activity and leisure alike, that's when you become Jeevan Mukta - Free while Living. And for that to happen, as my Master says, we must be 'Calmly Active & Actively Calm' - that's when work cannot become stress nor can peace or calmness degrade into laziness or indolence.
