"Whether you sit zazen or not, something wonderful will happen to you," Suzuki Roshi said to me in dokusan. "Actually, this will happen someday to everyone. If you keep up your zazen and practice, when you have this wonderful experience it will continue forever. But if you don't cultivate yourself in this way, it will pass, like a psychedelic experience."

p.89. David Chadwick, Tassajara, circa 1969.
