Everyday Zen mindset

The easiest things are the hardest to do.

We can conquer the world, but if we can’t conquer our daily chores, then we cannot say that we have really conquered ourselves.

That’s why the Zen masters of the world tell us to wash dishes with absolute focus, or to sweep the floor with total concentration.

Things that we think are simple or easy can hide the deepest truths, when done with a mind that is still and present.
