“Those who see worldly life as an obstacle to Dharma see no Dharma in everyday actions. They have not yet discovered that there are no everyday actions outside of Dharma.”

– Dogen Zenji, 13th century


  1. I’ll hold that thought, Zenji’s, while I do another load. πŸ™‚

  6. Maybe this is why I find a warm, clean load of laundry heavenly. Or maybe I have it all wrong: focusing on the outcome instead of the process.
