In general, we never depart from the place where we should be: of what use, then, are the tip-toes of training? [Nishijima]

It is never apart from this very place; what is the use of traveling around to practice? [SZTP]

(The sentence momentarily cut out of the broadcast is ..."We can do this [drop resistance] to ourselves and to the world to such a degree in Zazen, that the hard borders between ourselves and the world soften, even fully disappear ..."]
