Suzuki Roshi

‘The extent of this practice is limitless. With this as our base, we have real freedom. When you evaluate yourself as being good or bad, right or wrong, that is comparative value, and you lose your absolute value. When you evaluate yourself by a limitless measure, each one of you will be settled on your real self. That is enough, even though you think you need a better measurement. If you understand this point, you will know what practice is for human beings and for everything.’ (Not Always So)
