As you know, we live in a world which is mostly perceptions. It is difficult for us to be satisfied with everything when our understanding accords with what we see or think. But we have to know that everything we see or think is under some limitation. You are not seeing or thinking about the thing itself. This point should be remembered. What you see, what you understand in terms of concepts is not always true. This is the secret of Buddhism. This point should be remembered completely.  ------------------------------------------------------------------ Excerpt from Shunryu Suzuki lecture 67-08-23- as found on Edited by DC - Many Shunryu Suzuki lecture excerpts on - from there links to much more.
