The standard stuff about finding a way out of suffering has to do with abandoning desire, especially for pleasure, material objects, and I guess in some sense immortality (although it seems arguable to me whether the quest for nirvana isn't just an immortality scheme of a different type).
Although, I guess it isn't Kevin's point after all. Maybe it's mine.

On the issue of lust, specifically, I have to admit to being a long way from 'accepting' all of my lusts. Some of them feel very wrong to me, regardless of my philosophy.
