During Shikantaza my thoughts are dissolving just after I'm noticing them like broken film strips. I'm wondering if it isn't a form of control. I'm missing the experience of all thoughts rushing while having the capacity to see them all included on the sky of my mind. I'm impatient.

To think whether it is shikantaza or not is still on an intellectual level. Zazen is not some kind of mental understanding. So it is better to not think about it.
