Meaningful Work has Value

The Powerful Paragraph

There is a scene in one of the Avengers movies where Tony Stark jumps off the ledge of his building as he presses a button on the bracelet he’s wearing. A few seconds later, as Tony Stark falls, his Iron Man suit bursts through the glass and plunges toward him, eventually enveloping him and preventing him from crashing to the earth. Because the suit is doing most of the work, it can be easy to overlook the gravity (no pun intended) of the scene; that Tony Stark trusted his own ingenuity with his life. He was confident that the thing he created would perform exactly as intended at precisely the right moment. This scene serves as a reminder that meaningful work has value, and it just might be the thing that saves us from ourselves.

There is more than silence in the silence. Silence is far more than the absence of talking, the absence of movement, the absence of activity. Silence, the creation of space between words and between thoughts, is like an expansive sky between clouds where a wider view can be seen.
