Pushing a wheelbarrow

There’s a wonderful story set in medieval times in which a man sees a laborer walking by with a wheelbarrow and asks what he is doing. “Can’t you see I’m pushing a wheelbarrow,” the labor replies. Another man comes by doing the same thing and he, too, is asked, “What are you doing?” He replies, “Can’t you see? i’m perform the work of God. I’m building Chartres Cathedral.”

Robert A. Johnson, from Living Your Unlived Life
