Temptation - Is It Worth It?

"Buddhism teaches that a craving for things outside ourselves causes an unhappy and pointless search for security. It teaches me to stop following every impulse and to learn restraint. Obviously I lost track of what I was taught."

Something didn't sit right about his apology. But does he need to apologise to me? Heck no. I don't care. However he still came across as very arrogant... robotic...

Nevertheless, the above statement that he made was probably the most important part of it, even though his apology was so scripted and contrived...

Nnot every impulse needs to be followed. Lack of restraint inevitably leads to unhappiness, however fun the temptation was at the time.

Thanks for the lesson, Tiger. Now disappear.


  1. O.K. That was very interesting, I think. Onya Buddha.

  2. I'm glad I'm not the only one who thought his "apology" (and him, and others like him) was arrogant, robotic, scripted. Mostly arrogant. And completely without sincerity or honesty. Guess it truly is hard for a Tiger to change his stripes!
