Dead End

There must be some reason why so many people come come to Zen Center and practice Zen and study Zen. I think this is because our civilization has came [laughs] already to a dead end, and if you realize that you cannot go any further. So people who notice that this is the dead end may come to Zen Center [laughs, laughter] to find out some way to go further.        --------------------------- Excerpt from Shunryu Suzuki  lecture 69-04-08-bn - 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.
