370. Mumon allows for the possibility that we might 'not realize it yet'. And so he gives advice on how we should proceed. He writes: 'I earnestly advise you not to rush about wildly'. That is: don't go racking your brains; don't go running off to scholars and commentators. So what to do? Just 'realize what the real is'. But how? By doing the opposite of running about wildly. That is, sit quietly in zazen.
