Thank you for your warm welcome Bill. Here is a question for the group.
I have read some things on zazen from this forum and on the internet as well
as in books. when I meditate I calm myself and allow myself to rest and relax.
For a few moments I do nothing but sit and allow my thoughts and everything to
arise without attaching myself to them. Then I let my attention rest on my
breath's sensation at the tip of the nose and I follow it in and out to try and
become aware of it. I was wondering if this is an acceptable practice or if I
needed to do something different? In some meditations it says that I need to
rest my aatention in my "hara" or on some visualized point on my forhead as
well as becoming aware of my breathing. This can all be very confusing.
Would somone please help me by telling me an appropriate way to meditate,
or just please give me some points on practice? It needs to be understood that
where I live I have no Zen teacher but only myself.

Al, Welcome to the Zen Forum!
As you can tell by scanning the postings over the past several weeks there
has not been much action except the reason short exchanges prompted by Tony
Wus posting. I hope youll feel free to engage whenever there are postings of
interest, and I encourage you to initiate some threads of your own.
Peace to All too, (except Al (the old one) who needs no peace - only wu)
