Day 8: Work

Day 8
The woodcutter
Works in all seasons,
Splitting wood is both
Action and inaction.
-Deng Ming-Dao

Action and inaction are the balance of how fate, destininy and causality work in conjunction with one another to arrive at the perfect place & space of your existance. Deng Ming-Dao also writes:"...true labor is half initiate and half knowing how to let things proceed on their own."

The fate of things. I may not like how things are done, but it's how they end up and there is not a damn thing you can do about it. I work against not working toward anything, but it doesn't mean that you can get your hopes up even when you don't think you're doing it. Then there is a matter of disappointment. Still, I believe a small amount of initiation propels life forward, but in the end you're in the backseat and destiny is driving.

"Go into the woods.
 No games - it's all real.
Either you live it or you die"
