"You do not have to be a monk to train like a monk,
but you have to train like a monk."
"The Monks devotion to a life of meditation, contemplation and prayer is central, and informs his or her understanding of the Ancient Texts. This is the only reason why he or she begins their day in serene meditation and prayer, until their entire life is serene and a prayer for all sentient beings." - Seijaku Roshi

"THE CIRCLE OF GRACE"
"At all times and every moment we live and breathe within a Circle of Grace; in good times and bad times, in sickness and in good health. Developing an "awareness" of our place within The Circle is what we call Zen Training.
Having an "awareness" of our place within The Circle is what we call "cessation from suffering".
