Before enlightenment, chop wood and carry water.
...chop wood and carry water.
Every magnificent experience, as eye opening as it may be...
...as significant as it really is...
...is ultimately just an experience.
The reason why we shouldn't get too hung up on experiences is that people have negative experiences and positive ones, yet it seems that they are over just as soon as they start.
70, 80, or 90 years on this Earth is a long time compared to momentary pleasure or displeasure.
Let us be more concerned with our longevity. Let us build the healthiest bodies physically and mentally in order to best endure what life brings.
