If You Practice, You Will See It

Interesting article by Anne Seisen Saunders, Sensei:

'The principle of causation means that those who practice will realize enlightenment. It's as straightforward as that.' The point is, cause and effect means, if you practice you will see it, automatically. That's why Dogen Zenji says practice and realization are one, because of the law of cause and effect. If you practice, you will see it. He says, 'Practice well.' If you have faith, doubt, determination, keep on going. You will see it. And, as a matter of fact, you are it right now, and it is not a matter of doing anything, except practice well. At some point, we have to see it. It's not something we create or conjure up. It's right here ready to be revealed.
