Thank You for this post. It helps to read about others who have endured adversity and survived. The times we are living through in 2022 lead us to think more about suffering through adversity with the right stuff.

You write:

"Jim describes this challenge with the Buddhist saying: After enlightenment, chop wood, carry water. Your goal is not your final destination. Afterward, you go back to your normal life, routine, and chores. But you return an improved person, with a different understanding to apply to that routine."

Yes, exactly. Hopefully we will all be able to return to some kind of normality.
