Continued from Yesterday

This psychology is maybe pretty difficult for you to understand, but Buddhist psychology is concentrated on this point. What is our psychological activity within ourselves? Psychological activity which takes place outside of ourselves is delusion [laughs] according to Buddhist psychology. It is not true. It does not exist. So, deluded activity will not result in anything. But true activity, only true activity result good result.                 --------------------------- Excerpt from Shunryu Suzuki  lecture 65-12-11-A - as found on shunryusuzuki.comfrom one of the newly discovered (2021) or recently significantly added to or changed lecture tapes. 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. Go to https://www.instagram.com/cuke_archives/ for more daily Shunryu Suzuki lecture excerpts - with a photo

DC Comment: When he says "deluded activity will not result in anything" he means anything beneficial. I'd say there's no activity without a result.
