What work would a master do?
He made Humanity his work.
If we make Humanity our work as well, we can do what we like as long as we feel it adds to the benefit humanity. The better you will do 'what we like', the more we are developing 'what we love' and so the fruits of our labour will always be love, what more do we want for ourselves, the masters, Humanity, the Dzyani's, the Solar Angels, the Cosmic Lords: the Causeless Cause,...?
When God created, he gave al knowledge and power to His creatures, but kept Love for Himself; want to know God? Then work for Love and be Loved and understand that misunderstood Love can cause Thorn...The Rose has a beautifull Flower and a very sharp Thorn!

When first I had the privilege of coming into somewhat closer touch
with the Master, I asked Him in a letter what I should do. He
answered to the following effect: "You must find work for yourself;
you know what we are doing. Throw yourself into our work in any way
you can. If I gave you a definite piece of work to do you would do
it, but in that case the karma of what was done would be mine,
because I told you to do it. You would have only the karma of willing
obedience, which of course is very good, but it is not the karma
initiating a fruitful line of action. I want you to initiate work for
yourself, because then the karma of the good deed will come to you."
132. I think we might all take that unto ourselves. We might
realize that it is our business not to wait until we are asked to do
something, but to set to work. There is a good deal of quite humble
work to be done in connection with Theosophy. Often perhaps some of
us would prefer the more spectacular part; we should like to stand up
and deliver lectures in public to large audiences. We can generally
find people who are willing to offer themselves for that; but there
is a great deal of humdrum office work to be done in connection with
our Society, and we do not always find so many volunteers for that.
Reverence and love for our Masters will lead us to be willing to do
anything whatever in Their service, however humble; and we may be
sure that we are working in Their service when we are helping the
Society which two of Them founded.
