Spirit

So, try to keep right posture, with some power in your stomach. And when you sit, your practice should be bound with the spirit. Like, if you want to stand up, you shouldn't stand up - forever - until someone says, "Stand up". This much confidence is necessary. It means you sit right in the center of the world, or universe – whatever it is. And you are right in the point of zazen in dharma time. ------------------------------------------------------------------ Excerpt from Shunryu Suzuki lecture 67-09-08-A as 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.
