I get tired of all the non-attachment posts. Most are taken out of context. The Buddha Guatama did not teach 'friends with benefits' drivel. He taught love and commitment but Non-Attachment to IDEAS and beliefs. Fears and greed.
Do take issue with some of the great Buddha's remarks - no doubt the above is true, but how do we not care, nor love another human or pet...in order to avoid the suffering when we must part? We are somehow feel an attachment, a closeness.
