L- Are you f*cking kidding me? What the hell…
D- Why not? Think about it. You love the supermodels, you got money, fame, prestige, power… hmmm what else?
D- Yeah, your boys. They would actually love that. Fancy parties, closed parties. Like that journalist wrote about his experience in one of Hefner’s parties, journalists also would be invited.
L- C’mon, D.
D- What? You would be the perfect person for that.
L- Do you really think I’m like that?
D- Oh, why not. You’re a man, you’re alive, you’re just enjoying life, right?
L- Why do I have the feeling that you’re actually just trying to make a point?
D- What’s the point, Leo? What’s the point of dating one beautiful young girl after another? As human beings we just have to accept that all of us get old, sick, eventually die.
L- Do you think this is it? The desire to be young forever? Was that so for Hefner, is that so for me?
D- This is also part of the buddhist teachings, that’s all I’m saying. To understand the human condition. To be able to detach from certain things is to be free from the suffering these attachments may cause. It’s ok to get old.
L- Do you think that’s why I party? I just like parties, why is that a problem?
D- I’m not saying it’s a problem. You deserve to be happy. But some things in this world are just temporary joy, it doesn’t last. And I want you to find true happiness, the everlasting happiness. So even after the party, you don’t feel like crap. And even when you feel like crap, it’s ok. True happiness is to find joy even in face of bad or challenging situations. But we will get back to that some other day.
