If a Buddha went away on vacation only to return home to find that his wife had painted the entire house pink and replaced all the family furniture with bean bag chairs. Would he just feel neutral about the situation?

vertical line He would immediately take responsibility for what on earth he was married two, and would most probable been cast into years of doubt about his "enlightment"
(Before he`d been transformed into some cute zen tale, maybe with some foxes, and chipmunks, yeah, everybody loves chipmunks!)

Anyway, just my most probable guess, hope this satisfied you`re hunger for knowledge!:)

vertical line Hmmm.. Was just going to share an conversation about paranoia. A friend that did not know i "secretly" was paranoid. But my point is, I knew and thus could handle it. So no, "you" do not change, one will always be the same. But one CAN change how one handles oneself or something?:) (I`ll let Shane take it from here;)

i dont know snibbler.

we always change.

today................immense peace.

but this is a fletting feeling subject to the laws of change.

i change my mind alot.

so i dont know.

i know of example my bipolar is just about eradicated.

or at least as long as i take my medication. which is abilify.

which is a mood stabilzer to the largest extent.

so do people change?

Tell her you`d love her to pierce her nose!! Because she`d then remind you of (favorite pornstar/ mom/ whatever:). And ramble on about admiring her courage with gory decriptions of gangerrea-whatever! Oh, and tell her you` think the belly piercing is cute, not nasty!
