Who am I really?

      “Accepting things as they are is a loss. Being in the moment is a loss. We are losing every moment of our lives. What are we losing? We are losing our self-centeredness, our self-clinging, our ideas, our conditioning. We are also losing our selves to the sound of the crickets, to the sound and feeling of the zendo as we sit, day after day, night after night. And when we know how to do this, to really lose, then we know how to really be alive.”
