"The Buddha is saying, ‘You are this.’ He doesnt say, ‘I have something extra that I am going to give you.’ Trust in yourself, trust in who you are. Sit down, breathe, be listening right now, hearing right now. Be intimate. But you have to do it for yourself."
Elihu Genmyo Smith, “No Need to Do Zazen, Therefore Must Do Zazen” (Via Tricycle Daily)
