"Before enlightenment, chop wood, carry water. After enlightenment, chop wood, carry water.” ~ Zen quote
On a special Wednesday Habits2Goals Mind Bullet, we ponder a topic we somehow haven't gotten to in five seasons: Enlightenment.
The perplexing quote above shares with us that once we reach enlightenment, the work "out there" doesn't change. What changes is the "in here" -- what goes on within us.
We go about our day, but we see things differently.
So what is enlightenment? Is it oneness? An understanding of universal principles? Unity, love, kindness? Unifying principles that create a lens through which you see life?
Or, does enlightenment mean something else altogether?
Listen in for a fascinating discussion about a literal translation of enlightenment -- a "lightening of the load" when negativity is cast away.
