    On my new zafu, 1/365 - 1/1. Next sit, California! (Starting over, or just beginning, or always just beginning!)

    4/365 Watched the zazenkai. Nice to see I'm not the only one that meditates in the midst of a crazy two year old...

    44/2/365 (sat/missed/Goal)

    Not sure how to report once we've missed. While I was out on travel I had two days where I simply could not work it into my schedule. I insta'd a couple times (not much else to do on an airplane).

    My trip really threw off my sitting mojo for a bit. Lots of stormy clouds and strong desire to get off the pillow. This past week I've been a little bit more in the groove. I still cannot get past 20 minutes before my legs are very asleep and it gets quite uncomfortable, but I am going to try to push it to 25 minutes starting tomorrow.

    I have written this here before


    One cannot possibly miss a sit even though we might miss a sit. Thus, you should diligently and sincerely seek to sit each day, never missing a single sit.

    Thus, we are challenged to keep sitting and make the sitting real in life, even as there is no "we" to challenge and the sitting is ever already sat!

    Such is the "My Zazen Challenge" Koan


    Also, it is not about how long or short one sits, and is truly beyond time ... although it is good to sit longer if you can.

    Counter-intuitive perhaps, but if you sit longer, trying harder to get somewhere or to get something ... it is not Shikantaza.

    If you sit, diligently and sincerely, beyond long or short, trying hard with nowhere to get, dropping to the marrow all need to get ... one truly gets somewhere, and it is Shikantaza.

    I have, indubitably, missed posting the last few days. On Tuesday I'm off to visit fmaily in Ecuador so I will be sitting off-line for a bit. Metta.
