There are many stones in Tassajara Creek. Each stone has some very mysterious strange shape which will tell us various things. Kumazawa Zenji wrote something about stones, in Japanese. If you go to Sokoji, you may have seen it already: The Five Virtues of Stones. Even though you see a stone, there is still our practice. That is everyday mind. So everyday mind is not just a kind of mind which is always involved in dualistic sense.  -------------------------------- Excerpt from Shunryu Suzuki lecture - 68-04-23-A as found on Edited by DC
