Before

It is not attained, this selflessness, after enlightenment. Before you practice zazen, fix your mind in this truth which no one can deny. We think we have self, but actually, as you know, there is no such thing as self. Usually people think, “I am here,” but actually we do not exist here.-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Excerpt from Shunryu Suzuki lecture 66-07-00 as found on shunryusuzuki.comEdited by DC - Shunryu Suzuki lecture excerpts on cuke.com - from there links to much more. - Go to cuke.com What's New [now at blogger] to see more daily posts.
