Then the Blessed One, picking up a tiny bit of dust with the tip of his fingernail, said to the monk, "There isn't even this much form...feeling...
perception...fabrications...consciousness that is constant, lasting, eternal, not subject to change, that will stay just as it is as long as eternity."

The (for expamle) was not a glorification of Monkhood, but a kind of glorification of a "perfect" layman (if you have read the link he provided), better a way of perfect acting for one who leads a houselife.
I guess that the hindrence is found somewhere else. Assumed aversion is often simply selfmade, sometimes we fear to lose something.

Do good is much more importand as to try to be good. Fear of being not good is also not needed while fear of doing not good is importand.

There is no such thing as a good person or bad person, a good Buddhist or a bad Buddhist. There are unwholesome and wholesome deed. One after the other.
Just that! *smile*

Right, just unwholesome, or call it unskillful. Can we live with just unskillful? That is not bad, isn't it?

If one is not able to cook, he/she is not bad. He/she just did not learn it jet.
Just that! *smile*

I thought you were in a relationship, Hanzze?

I think it can be very skillful to make love to your partner. It can be a warm and a compassionate act. Or do you think it is best to just say "I am not going to indulge your need for physical intimacy any longer. It is just a fetter and you should free yourself from it"?

The skillful way, as I see it, does not deal in absolutes, but in the right approach to every situation, to every individual, including ourselves.
