Quote of the Day: Zen Mondo
Makes so much sense: temperature of the meal should be whatever it is, palette adjusting as necessary; fluctuating as what’s served cools and acclimates to prevailing ambient temperature systems; hot for a while….
“A monk asked Donghan: ‘How do you avoid the discomfort of hot and cold?’
The master said: ‘Go to that place where there is no hot and cold.’
‘Where is that?’ asked the monk.
‘When you are hot, be hot. When you are cold, be cold.'”
~ Zen Mondo

This is another great quote whose meaning to me has evolved alongside the changes in my own perception of the world around me.
I share it with all of you as something to come back to from time to time, to see if its meaning to you has deepened with your own growth.
