Yet you have over a thousand posts on city-data. I guess the enlightened still prowl the forums?

Before we're allowed to reach nirvana, we have to put in some time helping lesser mortals on boards such as this.

I'm not WORTHY - let me stay stuck in the gear where sex is the greatest - if it ain't broke don't fix it!

I never claimed enlightment, but Yoga meditation has done wonders on my personality and helped me endure really rough times

when anxiety, depression or all those inner demons stalk 10 minutes of yoga meditation destroy them and that's without having a samadhi experience, in those everything else can wait

Ahhhhhhhhhh, but how does one overcome chocolate? (stroking long white beard)

I actually am somewhat into Buddhism and in the poster's defense, it's possible to know the "rules" without having played the game. It's the "practical knowledge" part of Buddhism and I do have to agree that it's doubtful the poster is tapping on his keyboard from a state of bliss. Or if he started out in one...now that he's read a few of our posts he no longer has it.

On numerous occasions, I have heard people claim that chocolate (not even good chocolate) or chocolate foods are "better than sex." I usually argue with them that their stupid hershey's kiss is most definitely not even close to being comparable to sex. Silly *****.

Ah, now I get it.

I was wrong. It's not like a lobotomy.

It's more like a beheading.

No, SEVERAL would be my vote. And I could easily live the rest of my life without another crumb of chocolate to pass through my lips - OTOH.....
