To Help Others

And in Zen at least, "to help others" means - we do not take it in dualistic sense. To help others means to think of others as a part of you. Not you yourself. You think to help others is to help someone, some imperfect person helps people. But when we say to help others in our sense, it means to consider people a part of you. It is like your hands or your body.

Excerpt from Shunryu Suzuki lecture 65-07-30-C as found on shunryusuzuki.com - Edited by DC
