Deeply sad

Here's where the meditative principles of the Four Reflections (sometimes called the Four Great Contemplations) will come to our rescue. They are, as you'll remember:

1. Precious human birth
2. Law of cause and effect
3. Impermanence and mortality
4. Weariness with "this world"

Spend time reflecting on these. Such a practice will truly help us all to let go of the attachments we may have cultivated concerning success in "the office" and find our purpose and meaning through compassion and insight instead.
