Inner Power of Practice

Our inner power of practice will respond to each situation like a bell. If hit strong, the sound will be strong. If hit soft, the sound will be soft. Our true nature or true power does not make sounds, but actually whatever we do, the power should be there. We should understand our Zen practice power this way. — Excerpt from Shunryu Suzuki lecture - 67-12-02 - as found on shunryusuzuki.com edited by PF.
