94 - driver

previous --- next

At Suzuki Roshi's prompting, I kept a journal about my Zen practice, and every week we'd go over it. Once I wrote about being his driver. Should I keep driving him to Los Altos on Thursdays, or should I bring up at a meeting that others could share this privilege? I concluded my entry with, "I'm making such a problem out of this, aren't I?"

He wrote below that: "Speak no word. Do no doing."
