At the moment my meditation is suffering(sic) because I've got a rather bad case of the dreaded "Man flu". (I hear you gasp!!!)   :eek:

Male members (sic) will know this is a very serious condition for those of us who can't multi-task.
I went on the internet looking for a cure, and, sure enough...
The complete and instant cure is found by buying the latest playstation, X-box, or I-pod according to the sites I visited. Technical gadgets top the list of cures according to some wives who know about these things...
Large quantities of "night nurse" and lots of sympathy also help....
I've tried most of the pharmaceuticals, and the sympathy, and now I'm grabbing my wallet and heading down to the mall....

PS: Dont get too close....  ;D

Addicted: the state of being enslaved to a habit or practice or to something that is psychologically or physically habit-forming, as narcotics, to such an extent that its cessation causes severe trauma.   :eek:


No sense in creating more slaves, especially when freedom is inherent.

Looked at one way a lot of what we're dong is replacing bad habits with good ones - like replacing unwholesome behaviour with wholesome behaviour.

Nicely said, Spiny  :)  From HHDL:

"With the realization of ones own potential and self-confidence in ones ability, one can build a better world. According to my own experience, self-confidence is very important. That sort of confidence is not a blind one; it is an awareness of ones own potential. On that basis, human beings can transform themselves by increasing the good qualities and reducing the negative qualities."
- His Holiness the Dalai Lama
