Already have

When you have some idea of achievement, it is already something which you will achieve. So that is not what you have right now. Achievement should be something you already have, and how to have it  is to forget all about the idea of self or to be one with the surroundings. That is how to achieve our goal. Our goal is right here, not somewhere else or in the future. ----------------------------------------------------- Excerpt from Shunryu Suzuki lecture 67-11-06 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.
