7-22-13 - In response to Narcissus quoting Suzuki Roshi saying his robes were his prison , an alert reader (MK) sent this quote:

"Yesterday I-I talked about something about freedom. Real freedom is, you know, to feel freedom wearing robe-this kind of, you know, troublesome robe. Instead of, you know, [being] bothered by this busy life, we should wear this, you know, civilization without, you know, being bothered by it, without ignoring it, without being caught by it. So without going somewhere, without escaping it, we should-we should have composure, you know, in this busy life." [That's from the Not Always So lecture]
