I would like to come back to Al's profound question. The thread he started is
getting long and branching out. Can you simply say 'this is it?' How do you
react to pain? A famous zen master Daisetsu Suzuki went through a lot of
suffering in his last days. I am scared to think about that. If he cannot avoid
suffering, how can I? How about you all? Are you sure you will leave this world

As we all get older, and some of us are a lot older, the question for
me now is this: Does Zen give you everything you want? Are you willing
to die sitting on a cushion just saying "this is it?" No Heaven for
you? No Nirvana? No nothing? Just worms??
