He's paraphrasing and riffing on Dogen here and in recent posts

Don't go wandering about or go sightseeing. If it is necessary, once a month will be allowed. Ancient people lived in the mountain or remote wood and practiced our way, giving up all worldly affairs and learning and virtues and they are sincerely strived to extinguish the fire in their head.

In this evanescence of life, we don't know when our life drops like dew on the roadside.  ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Excerpt from Shunryu Suzuki lecture 67-04-22-A found Edited by DC - Many Shunryu Suzuki lecture excerpts on - from there links to much more.
