Just Give Up

In life there is always something else coming. There is always more work coming when we finish our current work. There is always another period of zazen when all we want is the bell to ring during our current sitting. When we don’t fully embrace our life in its current conditions and find peace in the midst of discomfort, disease, and boredom then where are we going to find it? Stop being somewhere else and sit right in the middle of your life. It is the only place you can be, so be there 100% of the time.
