    I have been having the same problem lately with taptalk. If you use it too, push the quote button on the comment with the video and then copy the youtube link in to the browser.

    Thank You, I needed to hear this today.

    Thank you Myozan. Of course when we can let go of that "obligation" in other things also, then we aren't spending time in a check list but we can BE with the kids, with our work, with our dinner.

    Thank you Myozan. This was also just what I needed to hear today. I can have obsessive-compulsive tendencies towards the maintenance of certain habits as a means of trying to control my environment - and sometimes zazen can also feed this addictive type behaviour. So it was good to be reminded of this "unhealthy for me" obligation to sit - and then just to sit zazen!

    Gassho,
    Jason
