Round and round

If you practice our way, your mind will become calm, and you will become healthy. So for that reason, many people are practicing zazen. But that is not [laughs], you know, true zazen. The form they take is zazen, but the way they practice or reason why they practice is not right. But if you know this point, you can practice our way with various idea too. But this point should not be forgotten, Because it means you started wandering about, you know-- going round and round [laughs], seeking for something. Because you do not know the meaning of everyday activity, you start seeking for something better. And you are going round and round, same place, seeking for something special.----------------------------------------------------- Excerpt from Shunryu Suzuki lecture 67-12-01-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.
