Your condescending attitude is noted, and this is the last
free ad for your dancing studio that will be posted on this
group. I can agree that you may have a tongue-tip size taste
of Zen, as supposedly quantified by a Zen master, but that
certainly doesn't qualify you to claim any spiritual merit.
That's just another dance you're doing. And actually that
isn't very much is it? When you are full of Zen and not just
dancing around it, come around again. In the mean time,
I suggest you post on dance related groups. And gut outta here!
Peace and blessings,
