I wanted so much to understand your post but found it very hard draw meaning from what you wrote. I wonder if you could say it in a way lesser mortals can approach?
A "decided" time and a "focussed" technique, is good to settle in.
However, would the key be in the question, as to who does the particular meditation technique (whatever it is)?
What is the hope that is hoped to be fulfilled through the particular activity?
Who hopes that hope?
And how is this hope any different from any of the other hopes that you have entertained, in your life?
In the reflection of this, would their be a taste of something, which is quite irrespective of the "doing", (which may continue or cease, in the moment)
The peace, the tranquility, the sense of well-being or whatever be the particular experience in a meditation session, is indeed pleasing, uplifting (or disturbing, nightmarish etc)
The experience, whatever it be, takes "birth" in time.
What "births" in time, ceases in time.
And the laundry remains as stubborn as before.
What is that, which prevails, while laundry remains stubborn, and while zazen is occuring.
What is that Holy Grail,(so to say) which is irrespective of "decided" time and "focussed" technique?
Yaba Daba gopeeeee gooooo
