If You Don't Play The Game . . .

Now for this week’s edition of: “If you don’t play the game, you don’t make the rules.”

The Dalai Lama, exiled Tibetan spiritual and temporal leader, said sex spells fleeting satisfaction and trouble later, while chastity offered a better life. "Sexual pressure, sexual desire, actually I think is short period satisfaction and often, that leads to more complication," the Dalai Lama told reporters.

"Naturally as a human being ... some kind of desire for sex comes, but then you use human intelligence to make comprehension that those couples always full of trouble. And in some cases there is suicide, murder cases," the Dalai Lama said. "Too much attachment towards your children, towards your partner," was "one of the obstacle or hindrance of peace of mind," he said.

Thoughts: (1) If his parents had followed this advice, we would not be able to hear him tell us how to use the equipment God (apparently wrongly) gave us. (2) If you have to justify your abstinence from anything by persuading others to join you, maybe you have trouble believing in it yourself. (3) If you don’t play the game, you can’t make the rules.

Suggestions: Sex is great if you follow my rules of (1) Appropriate, (2) Consensual and (3) Fun. Bang like rabbits if you want; go easy if that’s what you like. But only two people belong in the bedroom and the clergy belong in church.

Do you think that it could be that the Dali Lama lives on a higher spirtual plane than most of us? May be he transcends the physical- hence his stance?
I've heard that it is a possibility that due to all the issues in Tibet he may name his successor rather than wait for his reincarnation-

He doesn't get reincarnated; he has a direct pass to heaven. Has something to do with his status.
