The Real Self

“You think your mind is in your head, but where is it? No one knows. So our practice is to be with everything. When you include everything, that is the real self.”
–Shunryu Suzuki

Art work: Joseph Cornell, Cassiopeia (verso),1960

    Before I could understand this mentally, reading it brought tears. It reminds me of a Sufi quote, “God cannot be known, God can only be experienced”

    Which makes me think of your post from the day before. We think we know, and knowing prevents us from seeing.

    My mind is in my soul’s head.
