Chop Wood, Carry Water....

Wikipedia tells us that the definition of humble is “the quality of being modest and respectful.”

I hear about celebrities, famous (or infamous) athletes and politicians who become powerful for what ever reason and then they cross that line. You know the one where they think they are above everything and everyone. Above the law, morals, ethics, that no one can touch them.

No matter how many times I hear about their shenanigans, it never cease’s to amaze me. What were they thinking! I then am reminded of the Zen Proverb “Before enlightenment; chop wood, carry water, after enlightenment; chop wood, carry water”.

Are you still chopping wood and carrying water? Try to always be humble…and just breathe.
