Engage all of your life as you would zazen. Don’t be cautious. Throw yourself into it. Thats where you learn. Our tendency is to go with what is familiar and safe.
Yet the familiar and the safe have nothing to teach.
Its only the challenges of a new territory that have something to reveal to you. But it means risking something, taking a chance.
It means living and practicing the edge, not backing away from it.”
–John Daido Loori.
