vertical line Hey Leo, did you send an e-mail to Jundo to prove that you are not a spambot?
Did he ask you to practice Shikantaza??
Are you now a part of his zendo, sangha??

I wish you luck with the teacher.

When you practice, do you chase your thoughts?
When you concentrate on your breathe, do you push your breathe?

Fine, you have judged me.
And, you have also thought so much better of yourself??
Congratulations ... you are back where you first started ... hahaha

vertical line "When you say you sit for meditation, the first thing to be done is understand that it is not this body identification that is sitting for meditation, but this knowledge ‘I am’, this consciousness, which is sitting in meditation and is meditating on itself. When this is finally understood, then it becomes easy. When this consciousness, this conscious presence, merges in itself, the state of ‘Samadhi’ ensues. It is the conceptual feeling that I exist that disappears and merges into the beingness itself. So this conscious presence also gets merged into that knowledge, that beingness – that is ‘Samadhi’."

That is the biggest of errors. We don't stop them. Let observe them come and let them go.
Stopping them means that you are actively doing something which is not what the practice is about.
The practice is the awareness of your mind. Not the stopping of thoughts.
If it was the stopping of thoughts then I could take a hammer to your head and you would be enlightened ... hahaha

If you hold on too tight then you loose what you search for in your grips.
If you hold on too loose then you loose what you seek in the flow of thoughts.
But, hey, don't believe anything you read here ... hahaha
