Our lives are shaped by habitual experiences.
Whether it’s a person or a task, it’s hard to have a fresh perspective
if you have become inured to the experience.
When you visit a place for the first time,
it feels novel, so you spend a lot of time examining it.
Look at your life in the same way.
Examine it like it’s a new place.
Put your heart into a routine task like it’s the first time you’ve done it.
-Ven. Pomnyun Sunim
