My phone tells me where my car is, so next I imagine it will find my keys for me too.
Although we have different teachers , different lineage, there's a lot of things every has to figure out for themselves. These forums are really great in some ways for doing precisely that. So this discussion has left the zafu and is now about moment by moment practice. Yes i truly believe every moment becomes practice, practice becomes our every moment. As I wrote in my bio, when i was first introduced to MBSR, right away I could tell this was having huge effect on my mind and heart, but it was hard to define what that was, so I wanted to seek out sangha or another group. The other thing is, I didn't want to turn the switch "off" - stop meditating - I wanted to carry it forward. It's actually as it turns out very crucial that samadhi be developed in other aspects of life and not have it confined to the cushion. My teacher encourages sitting, lying down, and walking practice. Standing practice is very good too I will add. As is washing dishes, etc. But how then, do we do something like Zen while driving? Thats precisely the point, we are required to use attention in a certain way, with some precision, with focussed attention, with wide-angle vision, thoughfulness, calm emotion, all these things while driving! And thats what they (Buddhas, Bodhisattvas, Teachers) talk about when the teach sitting. Always be aware of everything. Look in every direction. So, going back to the zafu, the practice is one of waking up. Today I noticed this feeling when I was toying with sustained, controlled attention in zazen, this feeling arose that its like floating in a small boat. The buoyancy arises when the attention is sustained. Thats when breath becomes very shallow and slow, blood pressure drops. Sorry if this is rambling, but thats just it, carrying the buoyancy forward like Grand Master, i think its doable for almost everyone.
