Have you ever been in a WORK situation, so awful, so miserable, you felt as if you must have been cursed, so that all WORK became odious and bitter toil? How did you get there? How did you escape?
WYTCHES’ BREW — Omnia — Alive!

“Double, double, TOIL and trouble…”

Even in now, in the Age of Aquarius, there are human beings in bondage. Slavery is wrong and the potential for evil in a system that allows slavery is as bad as it can get. Some misguided people even believe they are supposed to own other people. They are deluded.
LET MY PEOPLE GO — Paul Robeson

Dolly Parton wrote and sang 9 to 5 as part of the sound track for the movie 9 TO 5. She is singing about a WORK situation that has changed only superficially in the years since she wrote her song that seems fun, but is about a serious topic.

The Communist Manifesto – Bourgeoisie and Proletariat  The rule of the Proletariat was supposed to be a WORKER’S paradise  It didn’t turn out that way.  Fortunately Russians are strong and resilient and know how to WORK or they could not have survived the harsh and beautiful land, itself, nor the Tsars, and Vladimir Lenin and Joseph Stalin, Georgy Malenkov, Nikita Khrushchev, and Leonid Brezhnev, Yuri Andropov, Konstantin Chernenko, Mikhail Gorbachev. The day after Gorbachev resigned the USSR dissolved. But the Russian people survived and thrive through hard WORK.

Everyone has WORK to accomplish in their lives. Each person’s WORK is unique. The words “…Ain’t nobody gonna carry your load…” apply to all of us. Dharma – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia .  Doc Watson probably did not think about Dharma WORK, as such, but he accomplished much in his chosen field.  He was loving and beloved though out his life. Doc Watson is one of my Dharma WORK heroes.

Is the WORK required of Job, dʒoʊb, אִיּוֹב, ʾIyyôḇ, أيّوب, Ayyūb, a Prophet of the Gentiles, still required of us today?  Is the WORK required of Job’s family similar to ours?  What do you do next when your life’s WORK is taken and everything is gone?

Does WORK that needs doing seem to require the strength of a thousand strong men? One person, alone, is not enough to accomplish what is required?
If you do GOOD WORKS, and follow a righteous path with compassion, kindness, and love, you will, most likely, find that you have the strength you need.
Strength of a Thousand Men — Two Steps From Hell — Thomas Bergersen
6min. 39sec.

    Howdy Bear, how are you today? Epic selections, I’m glad you thought of the Red Army Choir, their baritone voices and harmony gave me goose-bumps! I did not know about the Hutterites, interesting history and soulful song. I’m quite fond of this band since u’r introduction, they work!
