...And then one still practises zen by "Breathing you are online"!. Or at the 
very least this is what TNH tell us.

Chris said: "To know zen, the easiest method is to sit zazen."  
 
Chris, 
Zazen *is* IT - *and* the following may help:
o  One has a zen master as a guide, and has occasional interviews with him/her 
in person.
o  A significant proportion of the zazen is as a group, and preferably in a 
zendo.
o  One does not indulge or over-indulge in movies, TV, Internet 
browsing/groups, idle talk, partying, etc., etc.
o  One lives a meticulously moral/ethical life
o  One avoids contentiousness 
o  One lives in a monogomous and reasonably compatible relationship
o  One peruses and contemplates Zen buddhist scriptures and commentaries to an 
appropriate extent
o  One listens to teishos as often as is feasible
o  One attends sesshins as often as is feasible
o  One associates to some extent with other zennists
o  If needs be, one resolves psychological/emotional problems with the help of 
a psychotherapist/psycholgist who is also a zennist, but is not your zen master
o  One continually returns to mindfulness in the here and now
o  And so on
