The karma of being what is really “myself” seems very important.
It’s “karma yoga”: Don’t try to be the best somebody else, but find “your” truth. As I think over my career options, the little excitement that I feel over some of them appears to be something best not reinforced. My thinking that I should head for library administration as a way of succeeding was to make the obvious “jump” to greater success in the eyes of the world.
Maybe a risk finally that is truly worth taking is not to make this jump. I fall back on the obvious truth that strong doubts about a given pathway, over a long period of time, mean that that route is best passed by. All in all, I’ve decided that I want a “pathway with a heart” much more than a pathway of dubious “success.”
Career success pursued for its own end has no end.
