Natural Order of Mind

Q: What is the relationship of what you are saying tonight to the phrase in the chant, "the natural order of mind"?
R: Oh, "natural order of mind", uh-huh. That is pretty difficult for us. If you understand that, you are big Zen master. (laughter) "Natural order of mind." But even though you don't understand it, as long as you are striving for it, to keep the natural order of your mind, that is enough. ------------------------------------------------------------------ Excerpt from Shunryu Suzuki lecture 67-09-08 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.
