Zen Snow Shoveling:

Zen Snow Shoveling 

 If we believe that enlightenment is a product of meditation and intuition rather than faith.   We must then believe that the art of shoveling snow is just a way of creating a path for future travels. 

When the depth of our opponent is that of  just a few inches we need to remember that “Speed Creates Power”.  A firm but flexible grip on the shovel handle is important  for transferring power from our hips once  in a relaxed horse stance. 

Sometimes while attacking greater depths of snow, as in life, one must take two steps backward before initiating the attack with a forward thrust. Do this with “snap and power” This can be a power move keeping your center low. 

The question that one should ask is:  “How good do you want to be?” 

Broken twig and bird tracks find their future among snow flakes.
