Chop Wood, Carry Water

“If you chop wood, chop wood. If you carry water, carry water. No need to talk or philosophize about it inwardly. But if you are fixated on the fact that ‘you’ as a subject in this now moment are tampering with objects from the outside world, you can carry water and chop wood as long as you want, but it won’t lead you to enlightenment.
Maybe it’s still better than watching TV and eating potato chips, but I’m not entirely sure about that.”

From the upcoming book “Althar Surreal – Master Class”
