The Mundane vs. the Magickal

At coffee group yesterday, we talked about balancing the magickal and the mundane, about spiritual highs and lows, and how to navigate it all. I'm reminded of a Zen saying, "Before enlightenment, chop wood and carry water. After enlightenment, chop wood and carry water." Some interpret this to mean that if we create a distinction between the magickal or spiritual and the mundane in life, it causes suffering--and I agree. I find I'm happier if I see it as all one and the same.
