In this moment

 

Back to work after the long Easter weekend:

The way to attain balance:
Who dares to equal the person
who falls into neither being nor non-being!

Everyone wishes to step out of 
the current of ordinary life,
But this person, after all, comes back
To sit among the coals and the ashes.

Dongshan Liangjie,  Chinese Chan (Zen) teacher (806-869), Verses on the Five Ranks
