I can´t concentrate more than 20´-25 minutes. I think that`s not a good thing for my zazen. Could I improve my effort to sit a little bit longer? Or may be it is just a trick of my ego?

If you can concentrate for 20 minutes, that is on the good side. Humans cannot concentrate too long on just one thing. Only because we know why we want to sit and concentrate, that is why we keep on making efforts. Not enough yet. NOt enugh yet. In this way, our concentration gets deeper and our awareness becomes one with our concentration. We forget body, time surroundings. We deepen our concentration for this kind of experience.
