A few week ago I spent beaucoup dollars on a zafu and a zabuton from the
Zen Mountain Monastery store, visited the nearest Zen center a couple of
times, but I still have not restarted by practice.

Yes and no. Why yes? Reflecting on the articles I post *may* sow seeds
that could help one develop 'right understanding' and 'right views'
(IMO) thereby reducing confusion which would in turn enhance the quality
of practice. Nevertheless I plan to severely curtail initiating threads
with articles by others.

Who am I that you or anyone else should want to hear what I have to say?
After all, on the Internet, over a decade and half and after tens of
thousands of posts, nobody has ever said to me that they learned
anything from any of my perspectives.
