                                "Engage"

      "When I dance, I dance, when I sleep, I sleep; yes, and
      when I walk alone in a beautiful orchard, if my thoughts
   drift to far-off matters for some part of the time,  I lead them 
      back again to the walk, the orchard, to the sweetness of
                                   the solitude, to myself."  
                                                                    - Montaigne


    "
One of the fundamental concepts of Zen is there are no menial
tasks, only menial attitudes of the people who have not yet realized
that the simplest activities can bring enlightenment.

    The Japanese tea ceremony, in which the tea is slowly and
reverently prepared, served and sipped, is an example of immersing
ourselves totally in what we're doing so the act becomes a sacred
experience.

    Thich Nhat Hanh said, "If I am incapable of washing the dishes joyfully, 
if I want to finish them quickly so I can go and have dessert, I will be
equally incapable of enjoying my dessert. 

     With my fork in hand, I will be thinking about what to do next, and the 
texture and flavor of the dessert, together with the pleasure of eating it, 
will be lost.  I will always be dragged into the future, never able to live 
in the present moment."

    Today, we are going to "now" ourselves by selecting a household chore 
and engaging in it as fully and reverently as possible.  The task we choose
is not as important as how we approach it.  What we want is to simply do
what we're doing . . . with complete, caring attention.

    For example, you can choose to give your dog a bath. . . just make this
the most thorough and loving bath your pet has ever had.  Mentally apply
yourself so that your whole world becomes the sink, the dog, the shampoo,
and you.  Lather him up, scrub him all over, and rinse, rinse, rinse.  Think
of it as a massage with soap and water for your loyal pet."
                                                                                                       - Sam Horn
