“Before Enlightenment chop wood, carry water.
After enlightenment chop wood, carry water.”
— Zen Proverb
Once we have seen our true nature, life continues.
Life doesn’t end, we don’t end.
We begin, in every moment, to be fully present.
So we continue, through even the most mundane of daily tasks, such as the simple, yet essential task of chopping wood, and carrying water.
Allowing ourself to remain with full awareness in the present moment, to be fully present, we are here, now, we begin to live, fully aware, fresh.
So we continue, we chop wood, carry water
