The direct statement may be not only word, but also behavior is a way of expressing ourselves. So we put emphasis on our demeanor or behavior. By behavior we do not mean that you should behave like this or like that, but natural expression of yourself. So we emphasize our straight forwardness. We should be true to our feeling and to our mind. Anyway we should express ourselves without any reservations. This is the way how we express our teaching or our nature in its true sense. And it makes it easier for others to understand.     ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- [Excerpt from Shunryu Suzuki lecture 67-02-02Edited by DC - Shunryu Suzuki lecture excerpts on - from there links to much more. - Go to Wha at's New (now at blogger) to see more daily posts.]
