Dead End

If the true dragon will appease your ambitious thought or your unsatisfied feeling in your everyday life, you will be interested in our practice in its true sense. This kind of interest is not usual interest to be proud of your power or your understanding, but something which will appease all the ambitious thought and all the resistance. That is why many artists and poets and samurai or some influential people who found dead end in their way practiced zazen.   --------------------------------------------------- Excerpt from Shunryu Suzuki lecture 67-12-05-B 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.
