In Zen, the teachings are centered around everything being Zen, nothing more special than anything else. The hierarchy is stripped out from ‘work’ and ‘life’ and equal importance is placed on all tasks. Cooking, preparing a meal, doing ones duties and tasks – with presence. And right now with the state of the world, that kind of presence is so important.
What will this week feel like if you apply yourself with as honestly and with as much presence as you can to each and every little task? Changing the toilet roll. Answering emails. Making school lunches. Watering the garden. Being there completely and utterly for all of it.
Sent with love,
