Why Are We Doing Work We Hate?

547.05Question: In our modern society, work takes a central place. It is interesting that 80% of people do not like their jobs. We spend a lot of time at work we do not like in order to earn money, to buy things we do not need, and to show off to people who are not important to us. Why do we do that? What is driving us?

Answer: Egoism. But in each specific case we need to discern what aspect of egoism is driving a person and what it wants to lead him or her to. We are talking about the way nature directs us.

However, when we begin to work on ourselves, we direct ourselves to the artificial connection between us in order to create an absolutely complete, integral system out of ourselves.
