When you have no mind and body, you have no problem [laughs, laughter]. Because you say, “This is mind and this is body and body should not be the burden of the spirit,” or something like that. “Our mind should work hard to control our body” something like this. In this case, mind is not mind. Mind is delusion, and body is also delusion. And delusion and delusion is fighting.  -------------------------------- Excerpt from Shunryu Suzuki lecture - 68-07-24 as found on Edited by DC
