Ideal

In our way, there is no idea of complete success, complete enlightenment. And yet we are aiming at, we have some ideal. But we should note that, the ideal is something which we can’t reach. Ideal is ideal and reality is reality. Now, we should have both reality and ideal, or else we cannot do anything. So ideal and reality, both ideal and reality will help our practice. -------------------------------- Excerpt from Shunryu Suzuki lecture - 68-06-29 as found on shunryusuzuki.com. Edited by DC .u
