To live in each moment means to take temporal attitude on Buddha’s activity. To sit in this way is to be Buddha as the historical Buddha was. The same thing will be true whatever you do. That is Buddha’s activity. So whatever you do, or you do not, there is Buddha. Because people have no such understanding of Buddha, they think what they do is the most important thing, without knowing who is actually doing it. They think they do it but actually Buddha is doing it.   ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Excerpt from Shunryu Suzuki lecture 67-04-06 found on Edited by DC - Many Shunryu Suzuki lecture excerpts on - from there links to much more.
