Daydreaming, awareness, non awareness. Stress, relaxed, resting, struggling, thinking, empty of thoughts, sitting, reclining, walking. All is shikantaza. Whatever comes is it. Dont try to limit it, but you can if you want to. Thats how i see it with my limited view. :smile:
I'm not sure if you were addressing this to me. I wasn't asking for myself, but I was interested in how Johhny D saw it. But, thanks for your view, in any case.
