‘Student L [Katherine Thanas]: Docho Roshi: When does my life express the Dharma and when does it not?
SR: When it does not? There is no time when it doesn’t. It always expresses the Dharma.
Student L [Katherine Thanas]: But sometimes better than others?
SR: Don’t think in that way. Always expressing. You are always expressing the buddha-nature. That is you who thinks you are expressing “better” or “not so good.”’ (from the Suzuki Roshi Archives)
And how about you? How do you think your life expresses the Dharma?
