I don't understand your questioning here. It doesn't make much sense for
instance the question: "What do you mean by "
Do you have an attachment to your need for 'them' to practice more?".
Attachemnt to what?. Can you elaborate it?
ED:...but I suspect that you are saying that persons who do not do sufficient
zazen are not worth listening to. Yes?
Mayka: No I didn't mean that. What I meant was that although that is true that
in order to experience Buddha Nature no requirement of inteligence is required
while participating in a zen forum like this one where intelectual is 99% the
dominant power then there wasn't much need Buddha Nature energy for
participation but to be inteligent and smart.
No I don't have any objection of people having a good time if as Anthony
pointed out the central theme is a nourishement of zen practice. But how that
could be when the energy of practice is not present?....

Do you have an attachment to your need for 'them' to practice more?

I am not sure I understand you here, but I suspect that you are saying that
persons who do not do sufficient zazen are not worth listening to. Yes?

I agree, even though it may well swell Bill's 'no mind' head. ;-)

And, do you have any objections?
