Explaining "fox zazen"

in Japan, fox is something [laughing] to disguise or to change into or to fool people in disguise. He thinks this is zazen, but the way he appears is not zazen anymore. A fox try too much. Fox change into something else.If you try to understand what is zazen too much, your zazen will change into something else. So, you know, when you just practice it, that is true zazen.  ---------------------------------------------------- Excerpt from Shunryu Suzuki lecture 67-12-01=B 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.
