Whatever religion you belong to, it doesn’t matter when you to come and sit with us. That is because our way of sitting, of practice, is for you to become yourself. When you become you, yourself, at that moment your practice includes everything. Whatever there is, it is a part of you.
So you practice with Buddha, you practice with Bodhidharma, and you practice with Jesus. You practice with everyone in the future or in past. That is our practice. But when you do not become yourself, it doesn’t happen in that way.
So if you come here and sit with us, you’re not only sitting with us, but you are also sitting with everything, including animate and inanimate beings. Dogen Zenji said, if your practice doesn’t include everything, that is not real practice.
I can’t tell you just how wonderful she is. I don’t want you to know. I don’t want any one to know.
