Okay.This is getting ridiculous.Why does the compiler of the excellent Attan site insist on writing so many abusive comments under a variety of ridiculous pseudonyms?
If he wasn't so obsessed with throwing brickbats he would have noticed that the full text of the post he was criticising reads as follows:

“Wisdom is to see that there is nothing to search for. If you live with a difficult person, that’s nirvana. Perfect. If you’re miserable, that’s it. And I’m not saying to be passive, not to take action; then you would be trying to hold nirvana as a fixed state" (Everyday Zen).

Gee, I'd love to see the writer of this nonsense under real pressure or suffering...just long enough to see her change her tune.

The Buddha was genuinely out to eliminate suffering. When he experienced the ordinary horrors of samsara, (likely as a child)he didn't say, "Gee whiz. This is great!" (Frank)

Wake up! Whatever hard-won insights you may(possibly) have gleaned should not be frittered away by such self-indulgence.Didn't Padmasambhava say,"Even though my view is as wide as space,my actions are as fine as grains of sand"?!
Perhaps you have a genuine grievance but obsessing about it can only drag you down.Alternatively ,if you think the Zennist is leading his readers down a blind alley then you need to put up a more reasoned response for their benefit.
Please don't agitate me into writing another post like this.This site is supposed to be a blog-not a chatroom.
Right,now I have to go and lie down and think happy thoughts.'Cos swapping bad thoughts for good ones is what the Buddha's teaching was all about right? :-)

As per the below comment, it seems many of your followers are both mental midgets and spiritually retarded.

I've noticed that about half your 'followers' ...are terminally ignorant scum.

How does it make you feel, that your followers are as 'smart' as fools like this?
