If it is about feeling good, there are easier paths.
Being busy with things outside of ourselves - that is so unimportant - we waste our life not knowing who we are. We falsely believe that the outside influences us. This misunderstanding has become normal and accepted.
The outer situation does not change, but whether we can give life to each and every situation – this is up to how our state of mind is.
If we look from the immovable place in the last moment of our life, all is just passing scenery.
This is our last zazen, this is our last moment. It needs this intensity or else we get confused. We get confused because we think there is a tomorrow. There is never a tomorrow.
