Just to be OT: Relax, breathe, and read this:
Be here now. Be someplace else later. Is that so complicated,
Wherever you go, there you are. Your luggage, another story.
Zen is not easy. It takes effort to attain nothingness. And then
do you have? Bupkes!
Be patient and achieve all things. Be impatient and achieve all
There is no escaping karma. In a previous life, you never called, you
never wrote, you never visited. And whose fault was that?
The Buddha taught that one should practice loving kindness to all
sentient beings. Still, would it kill you to find a nice sentient
who happens to be Jewish?
Let your mind be as a floating cloud. Let your stillness be as the
wooded glen. And sit up straight. You'll never meet the Buddha with
such round shoulders!
To practice Zen and the art of Jewish motorcycle maintenance, do the
following: Get rid of the motorcycle. What were you thinking??
Drink tea and nourish life. With the first sip, joy. With the
satisfaction. With the third, Danish.

physical sensation is a symptom of a terminal illness.
To find the Buddha, look within. Deep inside you are ten thousand
flowers. Each flower blossoms ten thousand times. Each blossom has
thousand petals. You might want to see a specialist.
The Tao has no expectations. The Tao demands nothing of others. The
Tao does not speak. The Tao does not blame. The Tao does not take
sides. The Tao is not Jewish.
Breathe in. Breathe out. Breathe in. Breathe out. Forget this and
attaining Enlightenment will be the least of your problems.
Guns don't kill people. Rappers do!
