chumb_ba,
You wrote,[...the chains that bind us...become free..a gift..discussion mostly...I was wondering...?].
It has been revealed to me similar to what you have posted, from a Jewish perspective. And there has been revealed to me a way to overcome and be free. Part of this revelation involves that I am in a place of suffering, like a valley with a shadow hanging over me, that is death.
I came here to post what could IMHO lead others to be free from addiction and depression.
What is the Bhuddist way , if there is one, that you could post here?
Lou
