There is no hierarchy of doing… what this means is one job is not inherently more valuable or more worthy than another, Soren Kierkegaard wrote in 1843 that what really matters is that we do the jobs that belong to us… that we commit to our own responsibilities and meet them and that our search for identity can be answered by “becoming” our responsibilities and that this is secret to a meaningful and fulfilling life.
It reminds me of what Krishna told Arjuna :D

It’s been a year since I finished a painting mainly because it takes 3 days to remember how to paint and time has been squeezed like a toothpaste tube with lots of counting, selling, printing, driving and talking. I used to worry about it ... feeling like if I didn’t paint I wasn’t an artist but then I realised that was a story designed to make me feel bad. I’ve been reading Soren Kierkegaard and he writes that to live ethically (beautifully) We accept our duties as our identity . And that when we are performing our duties and our responsibilities with love and grace then everything is just perfect. There is no hierarchy of doing.
Drawing takes less time than painting and this drawing is about friendship and trust. Clouds obscure the view, they walk together along the cliffs edge which is symbolic of accepting that our knowing and understanding is always flawed. With this realisation we become ever more humble and gentleness ✨💛✨#draw #drawing #ink
