No holds barred discussion on the Buddhadharma. Argue about rebirth, karma, commentarial interpretations etc. Be nice to each other.

In my opinion, do whatever works. I see nothing wrong with precepts. Precepts become a prison when you see precepts as a prison.

"It’s like when you drink water: you know how hot or cold it is, but you can’t tell others."

The whole paragraph is here:

The Way is basically perfect. It doesn't require perfecting. The Way has no form or sound. It’s subtle and hard to perceive. It’s like when you drink water: you know how hot or cold it is, but you can’t tell others. Of that which only a

Tathagata knows men and gods remain unaware. The awareness of mortals falls short. As long as ,they’re attached to appearances, they’re unaware that their minds are empty.

I sometimes sit with people who go back to Suzuki Roshi's time... they were there when the complaints were made. They said that Suzuki Roshi said that Watts was a great bodhisattva. So was Issan Dorsey, another colorful bodhisattva who came out of sf zen center at that time.

Precepts are provisional.
The more we open up our Buddha wisdom, the more we reduce the tendency to unskillful action.
One who acts unskillfully moves ever further from liberation.
