"I'd like to have an argument..."

Knowing this body is like a clay jar,
securing this mind like a fort,
attack Mara with the spear of discernment,
then guard what's won without settling there,
without laying claim.

One of my favorite sketches. "Oh, I'm sorry, this is abuse, arguments are next door"

If I didn't, I wouldn't keep checking the 'News and Current Affairs' sub-forum. For some reason, a good argument does spark my interest at times, although maybe I'll give it up for Lent. ;)

too bad this isn't permanently satisfying, given dukkha :thinking:

I liked the line: "No, I'm arguing in my spare time". :clap:
Buddha save me from new-agers!
