Don’t invite them to stay

Not only is life always in movement, but the mind is also.

So, in meditation as in life, how to deal with negative thoughts and difficult feeling states…

In zazen [meditation], leave your front door and your back door open.

Let thoughts come and go.

Just don’t serve them tea.

Shunryu Suzuki
