Feel

We cannot feel anything without feeling of self. When we feel something, that feeling is the feeling of self. But having feeling of self or feeling of love, you will feel at the same time the absolute unknown being which is the other side of the feeling of self. So it looks like same, but actually it is not the same. The one is just selfish feeling without any possibility of being free from it. The other is although we have same feeling we have freedom from it at the same time. This is the difference and this is actually how we live in this world.  ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Excerpt from Shunryu Suzuki lecture 67-04-22-B found on shunryusuzuki.com. Edited by DC - Many Shunryu Suzuki lecture excerpts on cuke.com - from there links to much more. Going slowly through Suzuki transcripts featuring whatever is next that seems okay.
