Words of Wisdom for Nov. 22, 2019:
Shunryu Suzuki Believe in Nothing

"I discovered that it is necessary, absolutely necessary, to believe in nothing. That is, we have to believe in something which has no form and no color--something which exists before all forms and colors appear... No matter what god or doctrine you believe in, if you become attached to it, your belief will be based more or less on a self-centered idea."
— Shunryu Suzuki, Zen Mind, Beginner’s Mind
