I cant control my movements and saying some words sounds. They arise without my will. I practise zazen about two years and these problem dropped down in beginning of practise but now it returns and strongly enough. I would like to know the reason of this disease and what I should do to get recover?

Maybe it is from habit that you are moving and speaking. To be moved around by outer circumstances makes our mind feel small and hard. Doing zazen made you feel more free, shows that zazen is the right practice for you. There is no need though for any kind of control. No need to control your zazen. Awaken to this huge mind that does not get pulled around. Maybe again the old habits are showing, that is why you again feel the former problem. Please practice your zazen with a state of mind that is as huge as the empty sky.
