As some Zen masters say, our way is like to walk step by step. This is our practice. When you stand on one leg you should forget other leg. This is step by step. This is true practice. If you stick to the right leg or the left leg, the left foot or the right foot, you cannot walk [laughs]. This is how we practice our way. This is complete freedom.    ----------------------------- Excerpt from Shunryu Suzuki lecture - 68-10-12-B as found on Edited by DC  - Going through Suzuki lectures and posting anything that can stand on its own.
