When I meditate I regularly I seem to become more introverted passive and feel stuck inside myself I love to meditate but I do not like this state. I feel that my meditation should take me outwards and allow me to connect more but I don't know how to do this. Any advice ?

In our subconscious many thoughts and memories are stored. To purify these is what Zazen is all about. We use the breathing, koans to revive our awareness. When we concentrate on our breathing, then we get moved around less by our awareness. But we have to completely concentrate or else it does not work.
