The 5th Power

When you are doing something with calmness of your mind, with good concentration, without being involved in any prejudice, or without sticking to your own viewpoint, then you know things-- you see things as it is. So you know-- so you know what people want, like Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara. So satisfying people with what they want, this power naturally will appear. -------------------------------- Excerpt from Shunryu Suzuki lecture - 68-08-25 as found on shunryusuzuki.com. Edited by DC
