Before enlightenment chop wood, carry water. After enlightenment chop wood, carry water.Zen proverb
No I didn’t become enlightened from eating my chicken pizza last week. Darn!
For me, this is a reminder to not forget the miracles of each day. It has everything to do with the Now. I look to this quote to keep grounded throughout this process by enjoying each step instead of putting my head down and knocking them out week by week.
I’m discovering it’s about looking at your day and daily tasks as more than just mundane steps and starting to take the time to see the flickers of light as they appear and to be thankful. There are so many gifts, but we become blind from never looking uP. Giving proper pauses of silence and shifting from our mind to our heart awakens the whimsical of life! I was definitely reminded of this truth this week.
No recipe this week or guitar lessons. I’m human😊
And tomorrow we might not be together
I’m no prophet and I don’t know nature’s ways
So I’ll try and see into your eyes right now
And stay right here ’cause these are the good old daysCarly Simon
