Quote of the day

Ok, I haven't done one of these in a long time:

"To do Zen practice, we have to desire a certain kind of life. In traditional terms, it's a life in which our vows override our ordinary personal considerations: we must be determined that our lives develop a universal context and that the lives of others also develop that context."

~~ Charlotte Joko Beck, in Everyday Zen: Love and Work, HarperSanFrancisco, 1989.
