Sorry - couldn't possibly give you what you want ... that would make you happy and then you wouldn't have it after all.

I have noticed a tendency toward anhedonia amongst "cyberbuddhists." Don't enjoy life at all or you're not a REAL Buddhist. Self-diagnosed and clinically-diagnosed unipolar depression seems common too.

I tend to try to enjoy simple things. Was reamed thoroughly out one night in chat because I said I really enjoyed a bowl of vegetarian hot-wings. I was told I had abandoned the Triple Jewel and was a traitor to the Buddha, the Sangha and the Dhamma. I AM NOT EXAGGERATING. :tongue: Apparently, this wallowing in sensual pleasures on my part made the Buddha weep. Ah well.No Nibanna for me. But man, those fake hot-wings were good. The hot sauce was excellent. Life gets better with plenty of Hot sauce. Fifth Noble Truth.

Me if I were a robot:

It seems to me that some people would bite into a ripe peach and then refer to the texts to see how it tastes.
