I should contribute more to other threads. It's a balance between trying not to insert myself where not wanted, and replying where I am welcomed. In the end, I've just tried to play it safe and let others converse.
I read the Tibeten Book of the Dead, as well as one called the Tibetan Book of Livibg and Dying many years ago.
From what I can tell, you are of the mind to expel or ignore physical desires, and that getting rid of desire itself is the key to living a happy life.
You're interacting with a guy who proclaims to be a Satanist, of the motto "Do what thou wilt" if I remember, and that the key to happiness is to simply quench ALL your desires, whatever they may be.
Do you guys hope to reach some common ground on that??
Good Luck! :)
