“This is my practice. It is not anything special you need to learn. It is not some new information you need to get. It is nothing you haven’t heard before. It is just a turn you might not yet have made, or made again, and again, and again. A turn toward intimate engagement with the life you already have.
The instructions are at your hands. And when you follow them, you arrive clear and fresh - free of heartache, failure, fear, anger and judgment - into a ready-made life of deep peace and genuine satisfaction. Fulfillment derives not from lofty achievements, but from ordinary feats. It arrives not once in a lifetime, but every moment of the livelong day.…Sort the light from the dark, the delicate from the indestructible, and the heavy duty from the hand wash cold. Empty the basket, and empty it again. That’s the wonderful thing about laundry: it never ends.”
