Zen practice: “Everyday Zen”

Practice is not easy. It will transform our life.
.
.
But if we have a naive idea that this transformation can take place without a price being paid, we fool ourselves.
.
.
Don’t practice unless you feel there’s nothing else you can do.
.
.
Instead, step up your surfing or your physics or your music. If that satisfies you, do it.
.
.
Don’t practice unless you feel you must.
.
.
It takes enormous courage to have a real practice.
.
.
You have to face everything about yourself hidden in that box, including some unpleasant things you don’t even want to know about.
.
.
To do Zen practice, we have to desire a certain kind of a life.
.
