I have practiced zazen for close to 20 years.
I seem to have reached a barrier. I sit for 30 minutes each day. Lately 30 minutes passes very quickly. My mind is a torrent of words and images that never cease. I count my breaths, I simply observe breathe, I do neither. Whatever my approach, it seems that my mind is in a fog of commotion. Perhaps I need the personal guidance of a Roshi, but circumstances prevail and I am at the mercy of you guys. Any suggestions?
