Just to Sit

We say “just to sit,” but this word "just" is A should be A, directly points to liberation from A. Because you try to be something else, you lose your reality. So I should be just me. Then, at the same time, I have liberation. I have enlightenment. I am not a ghost [laughs]. I exist here. I am Buddha himself. I am not a ghost. This is just to sit.    -------------------------------- Excerpt from Shunryu Suzuki lecture - 68-07-24 as found on shunryusuzuki.com. Edited by DC
