“To give your sheep or cow a large, spacious meadow is the way to control him…
The same works for yourself as well. If you want to obtain perfect calmness in your zazen, you should not be bothered by the various images you find in your mind. Let them come and let them go. Then they will be under control.” ~from Zen Mind, Beginner’s Mind by Shunryu Suzuki
