“When you do something, you should burn yourself up completely, like a good bonfire, leaving no trace of yourself.”
What is important about this quote by Zen master Shunryu Suzuki, is the acceptance, in what I also believe, is that the days should be seen as the beginning and the end. All compacted into the actions, which make up the seconds, minutes and hours. Used up, set down and make as yours. An exhaustion of that signal point in reality. There is only the now. No past, no tomorrow.
