I tried to stay in the present 24 hours a day. This helped to reduce confusing thoughts. But now a new kind of feeling is developing. I sense some doubt that this is going to lead me anywhere. It is so scary that it often overwhelmes my efforts to practice. Is there a way to overcome this doubt?

Just saying doubt does not make the question clear enough. It is important to have doubt about one´s essence. In training the three points are of greatest importance to continue on the path: great faith, great doubt and great determination. These three aspects are used as koans so that the truth of mind can be experienced. Without great doubt, truth will not be realized. Become this doubt 24 hours of the day.

Due to Roshi's busy schedule this year, we are currently not accepting any new questions at this time
