"Before enlightenment- chop wood, carry water. After enlightenment- chop wood, carry water."
Bringing our full attention to where we are and what we are doing in every given moment is the secret to enlightenment. If we are able to appreciate every nuance and sensation of even the most ordinary things, we will live in a world of blessing and pleasure. Instead of being lost in reckless thinking and figuring and worrying, we can become aware of the present moment. And if we can do that, then we will experience a sense of well-being and satisfaction beyond our wildest dreams.
If I can fully experience exactly what I'm experiencing, my life will be rich and delicious and ripe with sensual delight.
