"the true way to study zen is not verbal. just open yourself and give up everything. whatever happens, whether you think it good or bad, study closely and see what you find out. this is the fundamental attitude."
i really like the notion of what this piece and its relation to the above quotation represent...accepting life for what it is and enjoying all that it has to offer. Other things are notable as well, but this stands out the most to me and is what keeps me happy almost every single day.
