Thinking from the Work and thinking from life - are two very different things. To really know the difference you have to experience the results of Work effort. In life we have a lot of habits, and make sort of mechanical efforts. We must have some observation of that, of what generally moves us, and what the results are.
But you must also experience the results that come from another kind of activity - what is referred to in the Work as ‘conscious effort’. It’s useful to think deeply about this. You have made certain Work efforts, and if they were made with sincerity, you should by now have the ‘taste’.
One is an effort in Being - the other is effort in everything else!
