Enlightenment is like
the moon reflected on the water.
The moon does not get wet, nor is the water broken.
Although its light is wide and great,
The moon is reflected even in a puddle an inch wide.
The whole moon and the entire sky
Are reflected in one dewdrop on the grass.

— Dogen

Knowing others is Wisdom
Knowing the Self is Enlightenment…
Mastering others requires force…
Mastering the Self requires Strength.

— Lao Tzu

Before Enlightenment
Chop wood, carry water…
After enlightenment,
Chop wood, carry water…

— Zen Proverb

There is No Enlightenment
outside of daily Life…

— Thich Nhat Hanh

To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour.

— William Blake

To see a world in a grain of sand
