‘When the abbot or any of the teachers is away from the temple for a week or so, the novices think nothing of it. But if there were no toilet paper, they would quickly feel its absence.’ (Zen Seeds)

This wonderful quote came to mind as I was writing a piece for Patreon, and I was surprised that I have only posted it once so far – though I suspect I also posted in on the Ino’s Blog as well. It feels like one of those lines that we need to hear regularly.
