Where does meaning in work come from? It reminds me of the story of three people cutting stones. A man comes by and asks what they are doing. One man answers that he is earning his daily bread. The other that he is performing his trade. The last man answers that he is building a cathedral.
[this story is from the craftsmen from the orders which built the cathedral at Chartres. They were the crafsmen, the masons with special privileges (free). for this reason maybe they were called freemasons? I got it from the book ‘mysteries of chartres cathedral’ by Charpentier. 🙂 ]
