A human being.
I have enjoyed my life as teacher, soldier, prisoner, laborer, farmer… and I cannot attach to any like or dislike. Jobs are not essential for human life; they are means for service or physical livelihood. I think that we must know the true meaning of a human life and to live with utmost usefulness, happiness and progress (in this world and in the world to come).
Today, we have new jobs in various fields on the real world as well as on the virtual world. No schools can prepare us for such jobs. Young people today may attain greater glory in their initiatives and inventions.
I did not aim at working as translator, but God has made me one, and He even ordains that I must translate words into actions!
It seems that thoughtful jobs are best for humans.

Shoghi Effendi says:

 “Regarding his special contributions to the Teaching Fund; he feels that this is a matter to be left entirely to the discretion of the N.S.A. He feels that the continuous expenditure of a considerable sum to provide for traveling expenses of teachers who are in need, constitutes in these days the chief obligation of the National Fund. An effort should be made to facilitate as much as possible, the extension of the teaching work by helping those who are financially unable to reach their destination, and once there to encourage them to settle and earn the means of their livelihood.”

(Shoghi Effendi, Directives from the Guardian, p. 32)
