Work is Good
Hard work is good, especially when devotionally channelled. You don’t mind it because there’s a good result. The result I’m referring to is the learning that is reaped from such endeavours. Even if the fruits of one’s labour are not up to one’s expectations, we can learn detachment from the world, from losing and not always winning. So that is a good thing. Humility is life’s embellishment.
We may also conclude, “I’m not really in charge around here. There is someone else who is the Supreme Controller. It’s not me.”
To assemble a production as we are, with “The Queen’s Secret,” is intense work. Who ever said that work is not play and that a play is not work? There is a tremendous amount of energy that goes into something like this hour-and-fifteen-minute production. Sweat? Yes. Tears? Well, the actor has to feign the weeping. Blood? Not yet in this production, but we did incur some injury. The fellow playing the lead role as Karna slipped and fell and thus experienced a dislocation of the hip. Luckily, there was “a doctor in the house.” People are vulnerable at any work-site—in this case, play-site.
When the young man collapsed, he had lots of support from all of us. Actually he was such a good sport. His mood was, “The show must go on!” It must go on for the higher purpose.
