- Understand that nothing is grasped or gained from life. To succeed is to fail, as the more one succeeds, the greater the need to go on succeeding.
- There is no “myself” apart from the mind-body which gives structure to our experience.
- There is never anything but the present, and if one cannot live there, one cannot live anywhere.
- Zen practice must not have a goal. To have an eye on some end is to have a lack of concentration, lack of sincerity.
