The Pure Joy of Duty

April 13, 2020 pwm1

Do your duty and leave the rest to heaven.

— Pierre Corneille (by Charles Le Brun; Public Domain)

It is like an incredible weight being lifted. We select our destination, map out the journey, and then commit to doing the required work required to move forward. But when the work gets tedious, or we face resistance, or we can’t see the path in front of us, doubt creeps into our minds. Once we accept that we are being guided through the maze of life, however, we can let our troubles go and embrace our duty with a quiet and splendid alacrity. 

—Mike Hazell
