Petreaus and the fluttering human mind
Budhha wrote in Dhammapada :
Let the discerning man guard the mind,
so difficult to detect and extremely subtle,
seizing whatever it desires.
A guarded mind brings happiness.
Explanation: The mind moves about so fast it is difficult to get hold of it fully. It is swift. It has a way of focusing upon whatever it likes. It is good and of immense advantage to tame the mind. The tame mind brings bliss.
For all those who are part of feeding frenzy don't understand the weakness of human mind to attach itself to objects of desire.
Even the best person can become fallible if not controlling their minds.
Those who are having fun today could fall to the same problem in future because mind, unless tamed, is the least trustworthy thing
A beautiful women is around you all the time and mind starts to waiver..... Those who can control their mind from this are truly Buddha's (The enlightened One's)

5. Buddha didn't get laid much did he?
Honesty is the issue here. Not sex.
And besides, if our minds don't get a chance to wander at least occasionally, wouldn't we lose or at least potentially diminish our capability for non linear, outside the box, alternative solution thoughts and ideas?
