‘Student: When does my life express the Dharma and when does it not?
Suzuki Roshi: When it does not? There is no time when it doesn’t. It always expresses the Dharma.
Student: But sometimes better than others?
Suzuki Roshi: 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)
