dojo to practice every day ?
Can something so difficult as zazen be practiced every day without a reason,
a motivation? How come it is expected a monk to devote himself to the posture
without looking for something valuable for him or the others?
If you do not have the motivation, do something else.

Answer from Master Kosen
going through difficulties of the practice day after day,
is not possible without a strong motivation.
Master Eka, Bodhidharma's disciple, cut his arm
to prove his motivation to his master. That has remained
a fundammental symbol of Zen.
