We must act in the world

July 18, 2017

“When we first sit down to practice with our own body and mind, we might think that they are two. And we practice for a while and we recognize that body is mind and mind is body. And we start by thinking that we and the whole world are two. And we practice a while longer, and we realize that we and the world are one. And we practice a little longer, and we realize that we must act in the world, and that it is not a matter of one or two. It is just realizing our nature moment to moment.”

(Roshi Pat Enkyo O’Hara – Body and Mind Dropped Away)
