Maybe a little formal introduction would help. My name is James and I have been practicing Buddhism for about 7 months now. I'm rather eclectic - I've been to Vajrayana centres, Zen centres and had discussions with a Theravadin Monk. I had resolved to focus on Shikantaza meditation originally in this New Year, but recently have decided to get back to the basics with some Anapanasati. I do about 20 mins a day (excluding time on the bus), and attend a Zen Centre about once a week. I think I will suggest that from this day forward I will do 20 mins as part of my morning routine, as well as bus time, and atleast 5 minutes every night.
Edit: I'm not attached to missing a minute here or there, I'm just trying to get myself going.
Welcome to Dhamma Wheel. When you get a moment, you might like to start a thread in the 'introductions' forum. You can either copy and paste what you've written here or write something a little different - its up to you. I wish you all the very best with reintegrating the basics and focusing on anapanasati.
