Life — a User’s Guide

First is the domain of the Home. It is dominated by Parents. One wins by cultivating cuteness and care of the body.

Beyond home is the domain of School. It is dominated by Authority. One wins by cultivating submissiveness and bullying.

Beyond school is the domain of High School. It is dominated by Sex Games. One wins by cultivating physical attractiveness and inauthenticity.

Beyond high school is the domain of College. It is dominated by Knowledge. One wins by cultivating verbal facility and diplomacy.

Beyond college is the domain of Business. It is dominated by Money. One wins by cultivating competitive spirit and politics.

Beyond business is the domain of the World. It is dominated by Power. One wins by cultivating energy and secrets.

Beyond the world is the domain of the Universe. It is dominated by Wisdom. One wins by cultivating intelligence and insight.

Beyond the universe is the domain of Death. It is dominated by Time. One wins by cultivating Nibbāna.

One can win in all the other domains, but still lose everything to Death. Death can occur at any time, without warning. Therefore the only successful strategy is to let go of all the other domains and take refuge in Nibbāna alone. Just like the Buddha taught.
