“The key to not-doing is staying in the center, staying true to your deepest intimation of reality. And on that ground, you will know how to accept the offer. Every mindful breath in zazen and as you walk down the street is a return to the cen- ter. Then, when the sharp moment arises, right there in the very teeth of conflict, you have a chance to maintain access to your deepest intimation of who you really are.” --Susan Murphy
