“If you accept life and death without any conditions, your life will become supple instead of rigid. You will not create strife.
Most people handle their lives in a backward way. They don’t realize the origin of life and death. They always involve themselves with things and issues far from where their life actually blooms. But if you accept life and death straightforwardly, you will be flexible, generous, and forgiving of others in any circumstance.”
Katagiri D. “You have to say something. Manifesting Zen insight.” Shambhala, Boston, 1998.
