Chop wood, Carry water

“Before enlightenment; chop wood, carry water.

After enlightenment; chop wood, carry water.”

— Zen Kōan

“Before enlightenment; chop wood, carry water. is a duty with an attitude of Nurse and happens in Time dimension of Body and as Time is a linear dimension stretched between past and future so stress is it’s basic character .

After enlightenment; chop wood, carry water.” is a worship of Work with an attitude of Mother and happens in Timeless dimension of Soul and as it is a vertical dimension of Now so Bliss is it’s basic Character.

Enlightenment is …… Yoga of Time Body and Timeless Soul so before Enlightenment is an Effort and After Enlightenment is an Effortless Effort.

Love all.
