Study in the midst of busyness

Shao said, “In recent days, I have had a lot of business with people. I am afraid I may neglect my study.”
Master Lu said, “In that case, you should study right in the midst of your business with people. People today think business is business and study is study: they view them as separated into two different things. What is necessary is that dealing with practical affairs be study and that study be dealing with practical affairs. Only then will you see the truth that the mind and affairs are harmonized into one and that essence and function have the same source.”                                 Lu Nan
