"No other form do I know, O monks, that so persists in obsessing the mind of a man as the form of a woman.
The form of a woman persists in obsessing the mind of a man.

"No... continue...

Clear viewing

The Buddha did not speak of sin. He spoke of actions and mind sets which cloud one’s perceptions of enlightenment and place mines on the path. Sex has been known to produce attachments, jealousness and non-compassion. These are the clouds which cover the blue sky, not the act of sex. Sex without love is more dangerous the sex with love. Do what you do but understand the risk. MU

vertical line The medium is the massage.  So it's his murky, muddy business.  He woke up in the woods covered in blood, which means he's either crazy or a werewolf but he's not a nobody.

vertical line Yeah listen to Stephen. Don`t mess around making you`re own mistakes and experiences doing whatever you want to do.
And you should stay away from love too! That can really fuck you up! Belive me, I`ve tried! You can live a perfectly safe and booring life instead, where sucide is always an option if it becomes to depressing!

(Eh,, Stephen? ,,,, Uh.. Nothing.)

Just who is this nobody with all the business anyway?  And while I think about it, what is this non-compassion that nobody says they don't care about?
