At the kitchen table, Joost and Eveline this time consider the 'right livelihood': an important aspect of the eightfold path. How do you earn your bread? Does that work in a 'correct' or rather: beneficial way? A way that causes no or as little damage as possible, with which you do not harm others but maybe even help you further?
The Buddha was clear about it: trading weapons is not a 'right' way to earn money. But it is much more subtle, Joost and Eveline discuss. As a teacher for a class of 30 teenagers, Joost sometimes has to pay attention to how he speaks, and what his intentions are: does he want to be the popular teacher or serve the interests of his students? As a journalist, Eveline once painfully encountered this when she had written a critical review that hit the person concerned hard. Still damage done, perhaps unconsciously and unintentionally, but important to learn from. Listen and be inspired: think about your life and your livelihood!
