Everything As It Is

Here everything as-it-is means everything as-it-should-be, because everything as-it-is-in-the-usual-sense always should be negated, one thing after another—even though we are concentrated on one thing. The result of the practice of negating everything-as-it-is-in-the-usual-sense is what we mean by everything-as-it-is. The-way-everything-should-be should be accepted as the-way-everything-is. This acceptance should be the most important point in Nagarjuna's Middle Way.

Excerpt immediatly follows yesterday's from Shunryu Suzuki lecture 64-11-00 as found on from an edited lecture in an early Wind Bell -all Wind Bells and Suzuki lectures from Wind Bells.
