What would happen if we simply took the seated posture and stayed very still, opening completely to our experience? Do we need anything else in order to enter into our humanity? In this talk on zazen, Ryushin Sensei asserts that by just sitting and turning our awareness inward, we have all that we need to fully realize our true self – and to see the ways in which we are attempting to distance or deny who we really are.
