Modern life tends to destroy the sacred. Zen enhances it. Zen would have us experience the sacredness of breathing, of stepping on the earth, of standing still a moment, of sitting, of lying down. In Zen, getting up and going to bed, eating, drinking, defecating and passing water are all sacred acts. This ritualization of daily life adds sharpness to experience. We come fully to life, just as we were originally meant to be. A perfect life is a life of perfect moments.
