Moon in a Dewdrop


Reading "Moon in a Dewdrop: Writings of Zen Master Dogen" I was particularly struck by the following passage which I understand to be about entering wholeheartedly into one's life and committing fully to Buddhist Practice. Sometimes we see life coming at us like an unstoppable force or even a brick wall advancing we cannot hide from.
"This is a splendid opportunity for buddha dharma to enter into mud and water. If you do not realise the fruit at this moment,
when will you realise it? If you do not cut off delusion at this moment, when will you cut it off?
If you do not become a buddha at this moment, when will you? If you do not sit as a buddha at this moment, when will you practice as a buddha? Diligently examine this in detail."
