If you are doing something that you do not enjoy but you are doing it for making money, it is just a job. It is the space of Rajo guna with traces of Tamo guna. Well, you got to do it but that is not life is all about. Take care so that influence of Tamo Guna is kept to the minimum.
If you are doing something that you do not enjoy and if you are not paid, watch out, are you being exploited? It is the space of Tamo guna. It might happen, at times, but be careful; it just cannot go on and on. Seek your way out, and you will get to end of the tunnel. Everything in life may not fair but there is justice for sure
If you are doing something that you enjoy but you are not paid anything, that is charity. It is a give back to the world that made you what you are. It is a reward in itself, and it is, surprisingly, a privilege of a few. It is the space of Satva guna
If you are doing something that you enjoy and if you are getting paid for that, wow!, that is fun. The more time that you get to spend here, the better. This takes the best of both Rajo guna and Satva guna, and it is the space for most of us to be ideally in, and fits well with the “practical living” experience
