The feeling ‘I work’ is the hindrance. Enquire ‘Who works ?’
Remember ‘Who am I’
The work will not bind you. It will go on automatically. Make no effort to work or to renounce work. Your effort is the bondage. What is bound to happen will happen.
If you are destined to cease working, work cannot be had even if you hunt for it. If you are destined to work you cannot leave it; you will be forced to engage in it. So leave it to the Higher Power. You cannot renounce or hold as you choose.

— Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharishi, from the classic, ‘Talks’, p 225
