Evaluate

Although it may be difficult to understand if I say you do not take your bath because you are dirty,  you do not wash your face because your face is dirty. What it means is your everyday activity should not be involved too much in some restrictive idea. You should obtain freedom in your way. And you should realize limitless meaning of our activity. You should not over-value-- or what do you say?-- should not evaluate too much or too less.  ---------------------------------------------------- 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.
