“Zen means doing ordinary things willingly and cheerfully.”

True freedom is finding peace and contentment in every moment of life.
If you rely on things like the company of others or enjoyable activity to find cheerfulness and zest, you are bound to external circumstances for your peace and happiness.
If you find just as much enjoyment in things like washing your bowl after a meal as you do in an exciting day out with friends, you have truly become master of your own life.
