'Just Do It' ... Just Do Zazen, Just Do Ordinary Life ... 'Just Do' by Non-Doing ...

Even if, proud of our understanding and richly endowed with realizations, we obtain special states of insight, attain the truth, we clarify the mind, we manifest a zeal that pierces the sky, [even so, we but] ramble through remote spheres that are entered with the head; we have almost completely lost the vigorous path of real acts in the area of reality. [Nishijima]

Suppose you are confident in your understanding and rich in enlightenment, gaining the wisdom that knows at a glance, attaining the Way and clarifying the mind, arousing an aspiration to reach for the heavens. You are playing in the entranceway, but you still are short of the vital path of emancipation. [SZTP]

HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENT: Each day, when brushing the teeth, going to the toilet or washing the hands & face, make it a simple ritual, a practice of silent Mindfulness.
