Yosimite

the year before last year, I went to Yosemite and saw a waterfall. I was watching it. It was one sheet of, you know, white pearls hanging on the rock. Part of the water separated from the rock and falling down. When I saw it, I felt very sorry for the [laughs] separated water. It was almost going to be mist but still water. If it become completely mist, there will be no problem [laughs]. But they are not mist yet. So it has to travel one thousand feet all the way down to the bottom. If I didn't see that separated water, I wouldn't have that kind of feeling for the water. But separation from the original source creates some feeling for us.  --------------------------------------------------- Excerpt from Shunryu Suzuki lecture 67-12-05-A as found on shunryusuzuki.com. Edited by DC - Many Shunryu Suzuki lecture ex/cerpts on cuke.com - from thee links to much more. Going slowly through Suzuki transcripts featuring whatever is next that seems okay.
