The Enlightned Worker

Awhile ago we were talking about ants. I forget the context but they did come up. That got me thinking about drones. As drones the worker bees and ants do nothing but work. There seem to be two ways to look at this situation; either their life is terrible because they are always working or they are enlightened because they never think of themselves.

This idea brings up the question of whether the working insects of the world are enlightened. Is their continuous work and lack of self the goal we all should shoot for?

If that is the goal, we are way behind.
