It occurs to me as I am going about the day, from early stirring before sunrise until to the settled darkness of deepening night, through conflicts (with a vexing yet much loved teenager, for one) and obligations (professional), pleasures (personal) and routines (impersonal), waking, washing, cooking, eating, walking, talking, working, sitting, reading, writing, cleaning, yawning, thinking, dreaming, it occurs to me that through it all, « enlightenment » or « awakening » is, as I think Chogyam Trungpa said, to see the continuity of the enlightened mind in each and every situation, as well as the discontinuity of it.
