Enjoy

It is all right with you to enjoy your life moment after moment because you are not enjoying your life as something which is concrete and eternal. Our life is momentary, and, at the same time, each moment includes its own past and future. Next moment will include its own past and future. In this way, our momentary and eternal life will continue. This is how we lead our everyday life, how we enjoy our everyday life, and how we get freedom from various difficulties. How not to suffer from difficulties and how we enjoy our life, moment after moment, is our practice, based on true understanding.        --------------------------- Excerpt from Shunryu Suzuki  lecture 69-03-30 - 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.
