Another view at our everyday reality back at the unMo.
Monks require contemplation; the sheer weight of our practical considerations allowed precious little time for reflection. (Praise be upon the hard fought choice to opt for the hand warming rituals of manual dishwashing.) Otherwise, we coddled modern beings reflexively expanded our comfort zones as best we could. With hardly time to raise our heads in either song or prayer, we assaulted our undernourished ‘long term goals’ as if they were hacked into the stone of the walls.
