In real life and face to face with people in the  arena of zen there are no 
women or men but just practicioners who sit down together and practice 
together.  There is not as much chatting but all activities are made in

You describe situations, preferences, choices and challenges that every human 
encounters in interactions with other humans in the normal course of life.
The crucial question is: With what sort of mind does a zenist greet them all?

Chris, ED and all:
To me is not a question about men or women but human beings.  There are times I 
don't get on with certain type of men and there are times I find difficult to 
get on with certain type of women.  There are very competitive men and there 
are very competitive women but there are also all those to whom value the most 
the quality contact they have with other human beings regardless they are men 
or women.  In real life I also have some male friend to whom first encounter 
was a disaster and then after some disagrements and fights become very close 
friends.  There is no difference here for as long as the person in front of us 
is of the same wave of thinking.
