Chop Wood, Carry Water
Ok, so I just finished my second 100 day study with Dosho Port at Wild Fox Zen. Also had my first Dharma Combat experience. It was short and sweet. Walked in, said a few words, granted an exit by Dosho, thanked Dosho for his teaching.
And so now everything in my life looks different! NOT! Everything is always what it has been. Do I see it differently? Well, not sure. I'll just keep looking and doing what I have always been doing, living this one beautiful life with as much intention as possible.
What I remember from today more than anything is this quote from Dosho's teacher:
"living in vow"
So it's back to my life of chopping wood and carrying water.
What else is a monk in the world to do?
Deep Bows Dosho,
