Joyous Continuous Effort

Practice vitalized by our inmost request is self-joyous practice. This practice covers everyday dualistic life. Duality should be realized as oneness, and oneness should be manifested as duality. The joyous continuous effort to realize the oneness of duality is the way to obtain vital religious freedom. Only when we find ourselves actualizing this freedom by practice do we find the incessant shedding forth of Buddha light in our life.

Excerpt from Shunryu Suzuki lecture 65-07-00 as found on from an edited lecture in an early Wind Bell -all Wind Bells and Suzuki lectures from Wind Bells.
