Follows

Your mind follows your breathing and with your full mind you form the mudra in your hands; with your mind you sit with painful legs without being disturbed by them. This is to sit without gaining idea. At first you feel some restriction in your posture but when you find you are not disturbed by the restriction that is actually what we mean by emptiness is emptiness and form is form. ----------------------------------------------------------------- Excerpt from Shunryu Suzuki lecture 67-11-02 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.
