Reality

Student W [DC]: Docho Roshi, life is pretty difficult. That's a small thing to say. I don't know what it is, so how do I accept it?

SR: The only way is to continue our practice. Without our practice there is no way to find out-- to reach the realm where we have not much confusion and trouble because our way is based in reality. 
    -------------------------------- Excerpt from Shunryu Suzuki lecture - 68-09-00 as found on shunryusuzuki.com. Edited by DC  - Going through Suzuki lectures and posting anything that can stand on its own. Not looking for zingers or "the best of." I find that following these excerpts daily provides another way to experience Suzuki's teaching. - DC
