33 - move

previous --- next

One morning in the zendo as we were all silently sitting zazen, Suzuki Roshi said, "Don't move. Just die over and over. Don't anticipate. Nothing can save you now, because this is your last moment. Not even enlightenment will help you now, because you have no other moments. With no future be true to yourself - and don't move."

p.35. Ed Brown, Tassajara, 1969.
