Once Upon A Time in Ameraca...

The B acknowledged that there is both happiness and sorrow in the world, but he taught that even when we have some kind of happiness, it is impermanent and subject to change.. And due to this unstable, impermanent nature, everything we experience seems to have the quality of dukkha or unsatisfactoriness.. Therefore unless we can gain insight into the truth, and understand what is really able to give us happiness, and what is unable to provide happiness, the experience of unsatisfactoriness or dissatisfaction will persist.. craving runs on 3 channels..Craving for sense-pleasures (kama-tanha): this is craving for sense objects which provide pleasant feeling, or craving for sensory pleasures..Craving to be (bhava-tanha): this is craving to be something, to unite with an experience..This includes craving to be solid and ongoing, to be a being that has a past and a future,and craving to prevail and dominate over others..Craving not to be (vibhava-tanha): this is craving to not experience the world, and to be nothing; a wish to be separated from painful feelings..Desire is a sense of longing or hoping for a person, object, or outcome. The same sense is expressed by emotions such as "craving" or "hankering". When a person desires something or someone, their sense of longing is excited by the enjoyment or the thought of the item or person, and they want to take actions to obtain their goal..In Hinduism, the Rig Veda's creation myth Nasadiya Sukta states regarding the one (ekam) spirit: "In the beginning there was Desire (kama) that was first seed of mind. Poets found the bond of being in non-being in their heart's thought"..The theme of desire is at the core of romance novels, which often create drama by showing cases where human desire is impeded by social conventions, class, or Cultural Barriers... you make up these questions, Mr. Holden? Or do they write 'em down for you?They're just questions, Leo.. In answer to your query, they're written down for me.. It's a test, designed to provoke an EMOtional response..Shall we continue?.. The light that burns twice as bright burns half as long - and you have burned so very, very brightly, Roy.. Look at're the Prodigal Son; you're quite a prize...Questions..Morphology Longevity Incept dates..
