Sheer luxury! We used to dream of only being attached to the aggregates. :tongue:

Some big suffering tonight, the boy was in net(playoffs) they got rocked 8-1. It’s tough to watch you child get bombarded with shots all night. :jawdrop:
Which sport is that? Hockey? Soccer?

Hockey, our national sickness.🏒
You son was the goalie? Then it was the defencemen's fault.

We were playing the first place team, they were the last place team so they shuffled the teams in the league and this team got some great players added to their roster.
The other teams lost some great players, they do this in this league to try and keep it equal. It’s a rep development league, most of the kids next year are moving up to A . AA, and AAA where the countries sickness gets taken to another level. My son really wants to pursue higher level hockey at the moment, but they are still so little. My wife and I sit in the stands cheering it’s especially tough when your kids the goalie, the last line of defence and when the teams confidence gets shaken he can get faced with a lot of breakaways and it really hard on him. He has a pretty good attitude,!he’s sad for a bit but after an hour or so he forgets about it, he’s very enlightened.😀 it his mother and I that suffer the most.

I will say agregates, but the most that i try to avoid is a cold... I support very bad any cold :(
I think that i am also attached to non-existance because the only thing i want is to ceasse thise whole mass of suffering... I dont like being alive, if suicide were bring Cessation, Nibbana, i would do it right now on the spot... But before Nibbana i have to work with my mind ... Have to be patient

Just the usual: beautiful women, sex, tasty food, music, and also, thankfully, the Buddha-Dhamma. Like most of us here, I'm a work in progress.

Don't beat yourself up for not being perfect. Just stick to the Path that leads to purity.
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.
