In this dharma discourse Ryushin Sensei challenges us to recognize the body of wisdom which is our very life. How do we engage in activity in the world without falling into one side or the other of our habitual, dualistic ways of thinking? We need to understand that without stillness, without that commitment to look at oneself persistently and honestly, there’s no chance we can offer the deep wisdom that this world so desperately needs.
