The Last Unenlightened Man In The Universe

I didn't write this, I just thought some people here might find it interesting.

I did search to see if there was anything like this here already, but couldn't find anything. Apologies if it's already been said like a billion trillion times ok...

I think it's awesome.

Wow, this website is coool...
The Jerk On Bike rolled his eyes and tossed the waffle back over his shoulder--before it struck the ground, a stout, disconcertingly monkey-like dog sprang into the air and snatched it, and began to masticate it--literally--for the sound it made was like a homonculus squatting on the floor muttering "masticate masticate masticate".

That's what you get with mayahana buddhists. Nobody ever said you had to sell out on all your desires in order to move forward. Samsara itself is the cause of enlightenment. I find no trouble living in both worlds... Mountains are mountains and rivers are rivers...

Hehehe. Check out some of the Tantric stuff. In a nutshell, they say that all manifestations are the spontaneous expressions of wisdom. Thus all desires can be harnessed.
