128. Some words from Zen Master AMA Samy: 'In zazen, be in touch with all the negative feelings and emotions and at the same time let there be peace and compassion. Do not try to repress or deny your fears, anxieties, jealousies, angers and the seeming meaninglessness, arbitrary blindness and insignificance of life and of yourself; in the midst of all of them and embracing them, abide in Bodhicitta, abide in faith, courage, peace and compassion. See the goodness dwelling in your heart and in the heart of your neighbour as well'.
     Here let us recall yet again those words of Master Nansen: 'Ordinary mind is the Way'.
