nirvana or never mind? help!

a cynical former workmate, nay, two cynical former workmates believe that enlightenment, buddhist style, is a crock of shit. one thinks he is already enlightened, whilst the other reckons he found nirvana last week whilst eating leftover thai food following a big night out. 

i disagree, but can’t seem to convince them otherwise. can anyone offer advice on how I may convince them that it IS possible to transcend the cycle of reincarnation and to free oneself from desire and suffering and individual consciousness?

thanks in advance for your help

    dodo – how does the lack of desire etc fit in with the anya spring ’06 collection? surely you can be an enlightened babe with a croc suede tote?

  2. dear erika. to have a piece of the latest season AH is a need, like food water clothing and shelter. surely you wouldn’t disagree? so, yes, one can be enlightened yet still be well accessoriused.

    hey bay!
    finally a chance to read-up on how you’re doing.
    mentation will superceed logical reasoning. the path to enlightenment is subjective; requiring one to submit self to the almightly and willingness to choose love in all things. re convincing – show them to someone who has transcended the cycle & freed 😉
