vertical line Don't fret about linguistics. What you mean to say is never exactly reflexive to the tension of your heart.

vertical line 40 days in a desert
Meditation, focus and effort
Then realization that there is nothing more holy
It is all the same stuff
Like water in a different vessel

vertical line Our way to practice is one step at a time, one breath at a time.

Visualize this in your mind first. Then, do it the best as you can.

vertical line In all the years of practice, my practice has not improved to the point where I believe I will see enlightenment in this lifetime. Have noticed more and more the noise in my head and its persistence. It is how my world works. So, if I am able to drop this then a new world should open up????? I do not know.

I have given up what I have learned and only rely upon the experiences of the present. Maybe in a future lifetime, I can become a better version of myself.

vertical line A moment of Self-Awareness comes as a surprise, usually. It's good. Because our ego has been thinking it's been on the right path for too long. Then, you can build up your self-knowledge from knowing what you are not.

vertical line Thanks So_teh for the reply.
The moments of realizing that this world and this mind are one of the same. Every second this mind makes comments or fortifies the world it has built. Nothing gets thru. Meditation. Zazen. All the practice just gives brief moments of quiet and relief. It becomes the dragon chasing it tail about it eat itself.

I hope you are well and doing better than I am. Good luck to you.
