And I feel the need to be in the same state of mind in the everyday life as the one I am when I practise zazen, because I have the impression that it belongs to me.
Only at the time of zazen this state is natural, in everyday life it can come all alone sometimes, but most of the time I force myself to be in this same state of mind, but it is not yet natural and spontaneous.
Am I right to act this way or do you think it would be necessary for me to wait until it becomes more automatic?
