Greetings Kim,

Funny comic... it goes to show attachment to self and why sometimes the Buddha's teachings are falsely interpreted as annihilistic.

Metta,
Retro. :)
“Delighting in existence O monks, are gods and men; they are attached to existence. they revel in existence. When the Dhamma for the cessation of existence is being preached to them, their minds do not leap towards it, do not get pleased with it, do not get settled in it, do not find confidence in it. That is how, monks, some lag behind … (It. p 43)”
