Read an Excerpt

"Don't
worry—just try. Trying is better than a Zen master, better than Buddha, better
than God. It is already great love, great compassion, and the great bodhisattva
way. Don't check your feelings; don't check your mind; don't check your
understanding; don't check outside. Then there is no inside, no outside, no I,
no you, no they: you are one with your situation. That is very important."
—from

Don't Know.
