EVERYDAY MIND
One day a Vinaya master asked a Zen master:
-How should one practice Tao?
The Zen master replied:
-Eat when you are hungry, sleep when you are tired.
The Vinaya master said:

The Zen master explained:
-No, no, not so. When they eat, they do not want to just eat but think of this or that;
when they go to sleep, they do not want to just sleep but think of this or that.
