I love how the meditative tradition dissolves either/or thinking!

We say, ‘In calmness there should be activity; in activity there should be calmness.’ Actually, they are the same thing; to say ‘calmness’ or to say ‘activity’ is just to express different interpretations of one fact. There is harmony in our activity, and where there is harmony there is calmness.

    Thirty or forty years ago I read a book by D. T. Suzuki for a class I was taking called Non-western religons. I remember really enjoying it. I can't find it now, I think I must have lent it to someone. I do hope they enjoyed it.
