Investing in Practice
It is essential at the beginning of practice to acknowledge that the path is personal and intimate. It is no good to examine it from a distance as if it were someone else’s. You must walk it for yourself. In this spirit, you invest yourself in your practice, confident of your heritage, and train earnestly side by side with your sisters and brothers. It is this engagement that brings peace and realization.
– Robert Aitken Roshi, “The Teacher in Everything”
May you be free from suffering and the causes of suffering!
