No Dualism

January 15, 2014 § Leave a comment

“We say our practice should be without gaining ideas, without any expectations, even of enlightenment.  This does not mean, however, just to sit without any purpose.”

 

“For the beginner, practice without effort is not true practice.  For the beginner, the practice needs great effort.”

 

“But if you make your best effort just to continue your practice with your whole mind and body, without gaining ideas, then whatever you do will be true practice.  Just to continue should be your purpose.”

Shunryu Suzuki
