You Yourself

Only when you can “just to sit” you can find out your own way, the best way for it. I am explaining it as if this is some good teaching, as if I know something, some secret. But it is not so. I am speaking about everyone's own way. That is why we put emphasis on “just to sit,” - because everyone has their own way and myriad of ways or dharmas. And moment after moment, you will find out your own way when you “just to sit,” when you are exactly you yourself. -------------------------------- Excerpt from Shunryu Suzuki lecture - 68-07-24 as found on shunryusuzuki.com.
